Spinal manipulations and adjustments are among the most well-known therapies offered by chiropractors. But most chiropractors offer a range of supplemental therapies and exercises that promote health and healing. Here at DiBella Chiropractic Center, we try to do the same. For example, we proudly practice laser therapy with the Diowave Laser for patients that need pain relief. Although less common and not as familiar to chiropractic patients, laser therapy can be a very effective treatment for chronic pain, disorders, and injuries.
Pain is a common occurrence all across America. According to the National Library of Medicine, back pain alone will affect roughly 80% of the population at some point in their lives. That’s not including people who suffer from accident injuries or chronic pain in their arms, legs, muscles, and joints. For those that are in need of relief, the Diowave Laser is a viable alternative to drugs or invasive surgeries. Let’s take a closer look.
The Diowave Laser is a class IV laser that offers a safe, pain-free treatment option for chiropractic patients. Unlike drugs and prescription medication, laser therapy addresses the root of the problem, rather than simply masking or blocking the pain. The Diowave uses photobiomodulation to stimulate cell restoration and tissue repair on a molecular level. Research has shown that injuries treated with a laser heal faster, and it strengthens the body’s immune response. Treatments take place over several sessions for just a few minutes at a time. Due to the nature of the laser, there are no harmful side effects, and many patients begin seeing results after the first or second treatments.
So, how can the Diowave Laser help you? If you’re suffering from pain and inflammation in your muscles, joints, or skin, then you may benefit from regular laser therapy. Common treatable conditions include carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, muscle spasms, contusions, and even skin burns. Because it stimulates your body’s natural healing processes, laser therapy is surprisingly versatile and very effective in reducing pain and inflammation.
