Cold Laser Therapy

Here at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness, we pride ourselves on offering state-of-the-art natural solutions for acute injuries, chronic pain and a wide range of health conditions, as well as personalized wellness programs to help our patients feel their best. That's why we employ one particularly fascinating technology known as cold laser therapy as a powerful complement to our chiropractic care, massage therapy, nutritional counseling and spinal decompression services.

How Cold Laser Therapy Complements Chiropractic Care

man getting cold laser therapy A laser is a beam of tightly focused light amplified at a particular frequency. If the frequency is high enough, the laser can act as a highly accurate and effective cutting tool, making laser surgery a reality of modern medicine. But at a lower frequency, the laser doesn't cut; instead, it passes painlessly through the tissues without damaging them. This is the frequency range used in low-level laser therapy (LLLT), also known as Class 4 laser therapy or simply "cold" laser therapy.

When the laser penetrates the tissues to a certain point, it provides several important benefits. The energy stimulates blood flow to the treated area, lending extra oxygen and nutrients to an injury site while also relieving pain, swelling and inflammation. The only sensation you might feel is a pleasant warmth as the laser works. The laser energy also stimulates the cells to produce more ATP, or adenosine triphosphate. This substance is a critical fuel source for cellular growth and repair, so the more ATP your cells produce, the faster your tissues can heal themselves.

These benefits have made cold laser therapy extremely popular as a non-surgical, drug-free means of injury care and pain relief. (The latter is especially reassuring for individuals who resist taking painkillers or have concerns about interactions with other medications.) Here at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness, we've found that cold laser therapy can help treat conditions such as:

  • Neuropathy (nerve pain)
  • Sports or personal injuries
  • Back, neck and other musculoskeletal pain
  • Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Arthritis and other degenerative joint conditions

Experience Cold Laser Therapy at Our San Antonio TX Clinic

As you may have noticed, many of the conditions cold laser therapy can help treat are also treated by modalities such as chiropractic care and massage. We've found that it works beautifully to support and enhance the effectiveness of these other natural healing methods, and we often prescribe them in combination to help you get the most out of your sessions at our San Antonio TX clinic. Better yet, cold laser therapy doesn't just benefit the area being treated; its benefits are also shared by the rest of the body, helping you enjoy a higher level of systemic well-being.
