Cold Laser also known as Low Level laser Therapy is a relatively new way to treat pain. While it has been accepted in Europe for over twenty years it has only gained traction within the medical community here recently. Core Health Darien is one of the first multi-discipline centers to offer this pain relieving modality. Basically the laser light supercharges the cells to stimulate regrowth by encouraging the the fuel cells called mitochondria to produce more energy. The energy is known as ATP or adenosine tri-phosphate. The more energy produced by the mitochondria within the cell the greater the healing response.

Cold Laser for Back Pain
Lower Back Pain is a big reason why people seek out chiropractor usually. Besides offering chiropractic care to treat lower back pain, at Core Health Darien we add Low Level Laser to speed the cellular healing associated with painful backs. Compressed discs and over stressed muscles lead to the formation of adhesions on the covering of the muscles. The muscle covering is called fascia, it is dense and nerve rich therefore very sensitive. We will remove the adhesions using a process called Graston. Cold Laser as a follow up allows the tissue to heal faster. It is very comfortable and a great tool in treating lower back pain.
