Pain and discomfort may be common issues, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Dr. Barry Fabrikant and Dr. Carolyn Kibel at Fabrikant Chiropractic Office provide cold laser therapy and other natural healing therapies in Plainview, NY to help you achieve optimal health and wellness.
What Exactly Is Cold Laser Therapy and How Does It Work?
Everyday life can have a negative impact on the musculoskeletal system. Repetitive motions at work, lifting kids or grocery bags, leaning over to scrub the tub, falls, and similar things have a way of wreaking havoc. They can easily knock vertebrae out of alignment, damage the muscles and discs, and more. And every damaged area can impact the surrounding areas, leading to pain, tension, and suffering.
While spinal adjustments and other chiropractic treatments are very effective at addressing these conditions, some damage can be difficult to reach through more traditional methods. Cold laser therapy can help in such instances, as well as damage closer to the surface.
Cold laser therapy is a very simple and non-invasive approach to healing. Dr. Fabrikant or Dr. Kibel will hold a handheld device over the damaged spot. The low levels of light will penetrate the skin and target the source of pain by stimulating the flow of blood and nutrients in order to reduce inflammation and encourage the body’s natural healing.
Cold laser therapy does not create painful feelings or intense heat. It has low levels of laser light, so all the patient typically feels is the device touching their skin.
