What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts, which is concerned with human health and disease. This profession places special emphasis upon the spine and it’s inter-relationships with the nervous system.
The practice of chiropractic is distinctive due to the emphasis on the reduction (re-alignment) of spinal or pelvic rearrangements (subluxations). This is achieved by specific spinal manipulations (adjustments), the purpose of which is to normalize the relationship of the vertebrae within it’s “normal” functioning framework. This procedure is administered with much skill and dexterity after a careful examination is made and the area of involvement determined.
Other considerations such as exercise, rest, diet, nutrition, food supplements, etc., will be discussed on an individual case basis.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy for back pain utilizes many similar techniques of biostimulation as other low-level laser therapies, and can greatly increase a patient’s quality of life as an alternative pain solution.
Rather than turning to heavy doses of pain medications, patients are able to achieve relief through non-invasive and painless Erchonia cold laser therapy for back pain. Cold lasers work much differently from other lasers in that they do not utilize heat whatsoever. The beams are able to penetrate the skin and biostimulate on the cellular level; the pain relief comes without the cost of scars or nerve damage.
Common treatments for back pain include pain medication, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery. Pain medication leaves patients feeling groggy, and they can easily build up a tolerance to them, while surgery always opens the door to the risks of complications and infections. Types of physical therapy tend to be effective, but the relief rarely lasts more than a few hours.
Low-level laser therapy for back pain is an effective alternative solution to the temporary and potentially dangerous options that are mostly commonly prescribed and utilized.
