Got Back Pain? Try Laser Therapy
April 30, 2020
Do you suffer from chronic back pain? This constant battle can leave you discouraged, especially if you’ve been seeing a chiropractor regularly. When you think of visiting this professional for back pain, you probably think of getting your spinal alignment adjusted, but did you know that there are additional treatment options that can help you heal and finally find relief?
Laser technology, specifically Class IV K-laser therapy, can be used for almost any soft tissue injury, including carpal tunnel, knee injuries, shoulder rotator cuff injuries and more, and many patients have found that this solution helps them specifically overcome their back pain. In this post, you’ll learn more about the causes behind back pain and how Class IV K-laser treatment can make all the difference in your healing.
Understanding Back Pain
In many instances, back pain is the result of damage to the soft tissues that separate and support each vertebrae. Spinal discs, consisting mostly of collagen, allow you to move your body and absorb impacts that occur in everyday activities and traumatic events. When a disc is compressed, bulging, torn, or otherwise damaged, you can feel debilitating pain, numbness, tingling, and other similar symptoms. Class IV K-Laser therapy goes deep to stimulate healing of specific spinal discs.
Even if your back injury isn’t caused by issues with your spinal discs specifically, you can have problems with any number of muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissues located in your back. Fortunately, laser treatment can help supplement chiropractic adjustments.
How K-Laser Therapy Works
Although spinal decompression alone can work wonders for many patients, this treatment can be combined with laser therapy for more effective, more efficient results. In fact, many patients who undergo Class IV K-laser therapy with spinal decompression treatment tend to have accelerated healing for their low back pain, than those who only have spinal decompression.
Class IV K-laser therapy facilitates healing for injuries in the soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, joints capsules, and spinal discs. Basically, treatment starts the body’s natural healing process through doing the following:
- Increasing cellular function
- Improving circulation
- Reducing inflammation through the influx of water, oxygen, and nutrients to the area
- Increasing circulation
- Reducing muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain
Benefits of K-Laser Therapy
Class IV K-laser therapy has many advantages when it comes to treating your back pain, including the following:
- Faster healing time
- Less pain, which can be immediate or cumulative
- Better circulation
- Reduced inflammation
- Short treatment, typically between 10 and 15 minutes
Through this advanced treatment, you don’t have to simply “get by” with your back pain in tow. You can actually heal and improve! Laser therapy can give your body the jumpstart it needs to naturally heal. Just imagine what you could do without your chronic back pain.
