Cold Laser Therapy from Wright Family Chiropractic in Parkersburg, WV
Revolutionary Low Intensity Laser Therapy in the Mid-Ohio Valley
A major problem when it comes to damaging the spine is the amount of tissue that is liable to be damaged in the recovery process. While laser therapy is usually the answer for a lot of issues with spinal injuries, it is still risky to operate a laser near vital tissue, because it could accidentally get heated. Dr. Wright specializes in the process of cold laser therapy, which is a safer way to treat damage without heating up your tissue. Cold Laser Therapy can also be known as:
- Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
- Low-power Laser Therapy (LPLT)
- Soft Laser Biostimulation
The purpose of cold laser therapy is to still apply laser technology to injuries, but at a low level of light, so as not to heat the tissue. The cold laser therapy typically treats with lasers at wavelengths between 600 and 700 nanometers. This procedure is completely painless and only takes a few minutes to perform.
