Cold Laser Therapy Utilizes Non-Invasive, Painless Light
Cold Laser Therapy in Lafayette, LA: Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless light therapy utilized by Lafayette chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Hargrave, DC that has been proven to effectively help with soft tissue and muscle pain. There are many issues that cold laser therapy can help with, some directly related to the spine and some not. Cold laser treatments are a safe and effective procedure to help give the body the ability to heal itself after multiple sessions.
Cold laser therapy can help with various muscle groups, disc injuries and more. Chiropractic adjustments handle manipulation of the bones into proper alignment while cold laser is an added treatment to help keep the spinal column aligned and relaxed. This is done by focusing on the muscles and tissues surrounding it. This allows the body to maximize chiropractic adjustments.
Cold laser therapy can also help with scar tissue formation, decreasing pain and lack of range of motion with regular treatment. Aside from just working around the spine, cold laser therapy can be used on extremities as well.

Cold Laser Therapy Promotes Naturally Healing
When a patient comes in for their sessions, low-level light is applied directly to the problem areas. The tissue absorbs the light and the body has a natural reaction to red and near infrared light. This reaction can affect damaged cells that helps promote their regeneration. The laser is not cold, but it is called cold laser therapy because the low levels of light are not enough to heat the body’s tissue.
During the procedure, patients can feel the device against their skin but it creates no heat, sound or vibration. It is completely noninvasive and painless. Most of the time, one treatment will take only a few minutes. Patients may see results after their first session but it depends on their unique condition. Our doctors will work with each patient to formulate the best treatment route to manage their pain.
