Nestled in the heart of sunny Florida is Largo, the third-largest city in Pinellas County, and home to some of the best beaches in the state. Unfortunately, not every Florida resident has the pleasure of enjoying the beauty nature has provided in Largo due to injury and pain. According to the MedCrave Online Journal of Orthopedics and Rheumatology more than 116-million Americans are subjected to musculoskeletal pain annually. Treatment for this pain costs the population upward of $635 billion per year. This includes medication, time away from work, and limited mobility.
At Coastal Chiropractic, we specialize in pain management and strive to provide every client with the chance to reclaim control over your life. One of the tools we use to treat soft tissue injuries, joint pain, and back pain is cold laser therapy.
What is Cold Laser Therapy in Largo?
Cold laser therapy sends beams of light deep into skin and muscle tissue. The light is delivered at a specific frequency, with no heat or pain during treatment. This low-level laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment with a fast recovery time. As the light reaches muscle tissue it creates an internal reaction that stimulates natural healing properties within your body. This helps relieve pain by tackling the cause of your pain at its root. At Coastal Chiropractic, our low-level laser therapy is delivered with a THOR laser, for which each of our staff is trained to use efficiently. The laser is safe for long-term use and can be used on multiple treatment sites. To learn more click here
Benefits of Low-level Laser Therapy
Low-level laser therapy was introduced to manage pain and inflammation. The light frequency encourages blood circulation and promotes nerve and cell regeneration. With age and injury cells become damaged and are no longer able to heal themselves. This therapy provides the boost needed to jumpstart cellular recovery. Cold laser therapy in Largo is a cost-effective solution to the pain management crisis in the United States. It also provides treatment with no risk of addiction or dependence. Treating your pain symptoms at the root (cellular damage) provides a long-lasting and effective treatment. As cells heal and regenerate, the cycle perpetuates, and the risk for future pain is minimized.
Who Should Use LLLT?
Low-level laser therapy, or LLLT, is beneficial for patients of all ages. It has no side effects aside from a potential redness on sensitive skin. It doesn’t interact poorly with previously prescribed medication, and it can be used in tandem with other treatments. Most clients using LLLT are between 30 and 60 years of age, but younger patients with sports injuries are also well-served by this treatment.
Is LLLT Beneficial for Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Unlike tissue pain caused by injury, rheumatoid arthritis is recognized as an autoimmune disorder. It causes damage to your joints, which appears as pain and swelling. LLLT has proven useful for treating rheumatoid arthritis because of its ability to tackle inflammation. With a minimum of 2-3 weekly treatments, patients with rheumatoid arthritis often see results after 10-25 treatments. Due to the incurable nature of this disorder, to maintain a pain and inflammation free lifestyle, we recommend cold laser treatment be continued as ongoing pain management and inflammation-reducing therapy.
Symptoms and Ailments Treated by Cold Laser Therapy in Largo
Some of the most common symptoms and disorders we see in our clinic which benefit from cold laser therapy include arthritis, neck and back pain, soft tissue injuries, musculoskeletal illness, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, and tendinitis. Due to the healing properties of the laser as cell regeneration occurs, patients of cold laser therapy in Largo often report clear, smooth, and younger-looking skin. Some laser treatments are used for skin rejuvenation and hair growth treatments, proving just how useful low-level laser therapy can be in a variety of fields.
