Cold Laser Therapy in Narrabeen

cold laser therapy on persons shoulderCold laser therapy can be a powerful adjunct to your overall natural healthcare approach. Also called low level light therapy, it uses a narrow frequency of red and near-infrared light that is pulsed so it doesn’t produce heat.

At Narrabeen Chiropractic, we offer this service as part of our multidisciplinary approach to pain relief as well as optimal overall wellness.

How It Works

The pulsed red light is directed into any area of pain or compromised mobility. It moves through the skin, where it is absorbed by the damaged tissues below. The light reacts with the mitochondria of the cells, stimulating the production of energy, which in turn activates the body’s own healing response. The result is increased blood flow to the area, which brings improved oxygenation (oxygen is needed for healing and repair) along with other healing nutrients, while toxins are carried away.

What It Addresses

Laser therapy can often be beneficial for both acute and chronic connective tissue injuries. It’s most helpful in addressing inflammatory conditions that result in pain, stiffness and swelling. Some of the common issues we use it for include:

  • Acute low back pain
  • Knee or other joint swelling
  • Bursitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • Tendinitis

What to Expect

Your chiropractor may recommend this therapy for chronic conditions or if you have swelling that makes applying a chiropractic adjustment difficult or unsuccessful.

For best results, we recommend a series of 5-10 sessions (depending on how long the condition has persisted) a few days apart. Then we’ll repeat the cycle after a few weeks to ensure maximum healing.

The session is quite short, about 5-10 minutes total. We’ll pass the laser over the affected area while you relax on the table. You may feel some warmth in the area being worked on—this is caused by the increase in blood flow to the area; the laser itself does not heat the tissues. The therapy is completely painless, and you may notice some improvement within a few hours.
