Introduction to Chiropractic Laser Therapy
A laser (short for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) is a device that trained medical professionals can use in a clinical setting to treat patients for pain and inflammation. Lasers fall into classes based on how much power they produce.
The familiar laser pointer that you see people using in lectures are class 3a lasers and produce a maximum of 5 milliwatts. This kind of laser does not produce clinical results and is not intended for use in medicine. Class 4 is used to designate lasers that produce more than 500 milliwatts. We use class 4 lasers at Spinal Dynamics.
Examples of Injuries and Conditions that Laser Therapy Can Treat
Patients are interested in laser therapy because they are hoping to avoid needing to go to a surgeon for an operation. Whether you have been injured while at school, at work or while playing sports, if you have a painful injury and prefer a non-invasive procedure, laser therapy is an option you’ll want to explore during consultation with your chiropractor.
Examples of injuries and conditions that chiropractors use laser therapy to treat include:
- * Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress disorders
- * Injuries after a vehicular accident
- * Arthritis
- * Sprains, strains and other acute injuries
How Does Class 4 Laser Therapy Work in a Chiropractic Setting?
After your chiropractor has approved you for laser therapy to treat your particular condition, we'll set up a treatment plan customized just for you. We use a class 4 infrared laser to direct heat into specific areas of your body.
The chiropractor tunes the laser’s wavelengths in the infrared spectrum. For example, the 800-nanometer setting is applied when therapeutic treatment must penetrate to the deepest level in your body. Your chiropractor will adjust the laser to 905 nanometers when the goal of therapy is to stimulate hemoglobin molecules in your blood. At 970 nanometers, laser therapy will stimulate the microcirculation of fluids in your tissues to promote healing.
