Faster Recovery with Low Level Laser | Chiropractor for Low Back Pain in Lubbock, TX
How y’all doing, Dr. Greg Marin here at 1-Spine Chiropractic and today I will be discussing a lower back pain.
Cold Laser Therapy
Lower back pain is the number one condition we treat here in the office. We have several different types of modalities to help lower back pain. One of our options we have here is laser therapy. What we have here is a cold laser, which is a class three laser that helps get rid of pain faster, increases the healing time, and also gets rid of inflammation. This cold laser therapy works great for acute issues like a disc issue. So it’s very non invasive, what we typically do is find the area of the pain inflammation, and what we do is get that laser process started.
How The Laser Works
So the way this laser works is with a light process and it heals the tissue up and speeds up the healing process. The process is called Photomodulation to get that process started and to get that laser going properly. So with a cold laser, it’s non invasive. What we typically do with disc issues is use a cold laser and with more chronic issues like a muscles, tendons and ligaments and facet syndromes we like to use a high powered hot laser, which is a lot more powerful. So we typically have to wear glasses for this because we want to protect our eyes.
Hot Laser Therapy
What we do with this is we work on this process of increasing our healing time and reducing the inflammation. What we will do is point at the area where the inflammation is or where the muscles are at. And with this hot laser you actually feel some warmth coming out of compared to cold laser. The hot laser works the same module is it speeds up the healing process and gets rid of pain and inflammation a lot quicker. Sometimes eight times faster than just the normal body’s healing process. These sessions typically run between four to six minutes and work great for a host of issues for the lower back.
