CHIROPRACTIC MASSAGE THERAPY
Cold laser therapy is a safe and effective tool that pain specialists and rehabilitation professionals have used for years as an alternative to harmful medication. An important aspect of Laser therapy is that it can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. Complete Healthcare Medical Center is one of the few offices in Atlanta that use this therapy in addition to utilizing both traditional forms of medical pain relief and natural therapies such as massage and chiropractic care. Cold laser therapy is so effective that it is used not only by 28 Major League Baseball teams but also exclusively by the University of Florida Gators and many professional football teams as well.
Depending on the area that is being treated, the treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. Most patients feel a soothing warmth as the cold laser is being applied to the painful or inflamed area.
Depending on the condition being treated your therapy may be administer through either a contact or non-contact hand piece. The contact hand piece is designed to allow the practitioner to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact hand piece due to it’s ability to displace tissue through a laser-massage technique.
Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Your doctor will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
