Cold Laser Therapy in San Antonio: Shorter Recovery Time, Natural Pain Relief
Amazing fact: Certain wavelengths of laser light stimulate damaged tissues to heal themselves. At Pinnacle Wellness in San Antonio, your chiropractor combines chiropractic care with a treatment called “cold laser therapy”. Our class IV laser treatment is comfortable, effective and comes with no side effects—except for pain relief, reduced inflammation and faster recovery time!
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Cold laser therapy sessions are usually less than 30 minutes long. While you relax, we rub a smooth, light-emitting probe over the injury. The probe shines an infrared laser deep into your tissues. Most patients report feeling a pleasant warmth or gentle massage sensation. Depending on your condition, your chiropractor may recommend a series of treatment sessions until you have lasting relief. The laser restores cellular health like this:
- The laser stimulates damaged cells' metabolic processes, causing cellular regeneration.
- Light also stimulates endorphin production so the body provides its own pain relief, reducing inflammation.
- The smooth shape of the probe allows the healing light to penetrate deeper, reaching through fascia, muscle, ligaments and tendons where healing is needed.
Along with nervous-system stimulating chiropractic care, cold laser therapy encourages soft tissue injury healing and can vastly improve recovery time from your injury. It also relieves chronic pain conditions.
Is Cold Laser Therapy a Good Treatment for My Injury?
Cold laser therapy is a gentle, comfortable, non-invasive treatment option that works wonders for a wide range of patients and conditions. There are really no side effects, and we combine it successfully with other treatment options for conditions like:
- Upper, middle and lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Arthritis and other joint conditions
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Golfer’s and Tennis Elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sprains and strains
- Numbness and tingling
This is by no means a complete list of all the conditions we can treat with cold laser therapy—if you don’t see your injury or condition here, just ask!
