Lasers have become an increasingly popular tool for fast healing and recovery over the years in the medical field – and for good reason. Advances in modern technology have found that specific wavelengths have healing and pain-relieving properties, saving patients the hassle of more procedures and medications. Dr. Young has been using laser therapy for a variety of conditions and our patients have shown amazing results.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy is treatment that uses a handheld device that emits precise wavelengths into the injured tissue. These wavelengths interact with the body and accelerate the healing process, reduce pain, and stimulate nerve regeneration. Laser therapy can also improve joint mobility, and blood circulation, as well as increase nerve function. The size of the device and wavelengths depend on the device used as well as the injury being treated. During a typical treatment the laser will be swept across the skin and the laser’s energy directed towards the injured and inflamed tissue. There are over a hundred different conditions that Laser can help with, ask Dr. Young if there is on that can work for you.
How Do Laser Therapy and Chiropractic Care Work Together?
Dr. Young often uses laser therapy and chiropractic care together to provide patients with the best results. These two treatments together can provide patients more benefits including additional relief from uncomfortable and painful symptoms. Laser therapy can be used on most areas of the body but has been shown especially helpful for chronic joint pain and lower back pain. For chiropractors, laser therapy provides a more precise target for treatment.
The types of conditions laser therapy and chiropractic care can treat include:
- Arthritis Pain
- Chronic pain
The combination of laser therapy and chiropractic treatment provides patients with a non- invasive solution to pain relief. The results are often long-lasting and do not require any downtime like surgery or invasive procedures would. Dr. Brad Young offers the latest and most innovative lasers combined with chiropractic treatment for pain management. Our goal is to provide the highest quality care possible and find pain solutions for every patient.
