Cold Laser Therapy for Back Pain Stamford Darien & Norwalk CT
Low-level laser, also known as cold laser therapy is a new way to help eliminate lower back pain. In conjunction with chiropractic care and physical therapy, Core Health Darien is pleased to offer this additional service to our patients. Do you want to know the nitty-gritty details on why it works so well for low back pain?
Cold Laser stimulates production of ATP a vital fuel source for cellular energy. Just like photo-synthesis the laser light produces energy through a process known as photobiomodulation. The mitochondria are where ATP is produced. Photobiomodulation enhances nitric oxide availability which in turns produces more ATP. If you can understand photosynthesis you understand how low-level laser therapy works. The cells produce more energy and heal faster.
Cold Laser is also helpful in treating headaches and migraines. You can watch this video where Dr.McKay reviews acupuncture points that have been shown to respond favorably to treatment. In some migraine headache cases, the headaches are eliminated completely using a low-level laser.
The idea of adding more light and heat to migraine may not sound appealing at first. But LLLT is a non-invasive and non-painful therapy that has been used for a number of pain conditions including headache disorders. There are specific laser treatment devices that are used for certain conditions.
