Cold Laser Therapy in Oceanside NY


Are you looking for cold laser therapy in Oceanside?  I have been a chiropractor since 1998. Over the years I have seen miraculous results with chiropractic care. Patients who have suffered for years with neck pain, headaches, low back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome got better thru chiropractic. Chiropractic care keeps patients feeling better from the daily stress on our body from work, injuries and stress in general.

Most of my postgraduate education was in the field of sports injuries, extremity adjusting and management. Over the years, I have also seen amazing results by working on the extremities. Pain in the shoulders, hands, wrist, hip and feet all respond well to chiropractic adjustments. Light massage around these joint will help decrease spams and pain around the joint as well.

However there has always been certain arm or leg conditions that do not respond so quickly to chiropractic care because there is a lot of swelling in the area. Conditions such as tendonitis or bursitis often take time to heal because of the soft tissue injury.

Adjustments to the joint will increase range of motion, but it would take time for tissues to heal. Also, adjustments and treatment to the knee and elbows have always been more of a challenge based on the joint design. I must admit I did have some frustration in treating these areas and would often refer out for therapy. The best results we get with laser is with chronic knee pain!

This all changed 4 years when I purchased the Class IV Litecure Laser. Laser therapy works by decreasing the pain and swelling around joint. Laser therapy reaches the cells and allows tissues that have damaged to heal very quickly. I have to say the results we have achieved with it are amazing and it has completely exceeded my expectations.

Laser therapy is safe and painless. Laser therapy has been around over 40 years and there are over 2000 papers published on it. We have seen amazing results with knee pain, shoulder pain, tendonitis, bursitis and many other conditions that were difficult to treat. Patients can feel results very quickly, usually within the first week.

In recent years, many medical and alternative health clinics have begun including light therapies into their traditional treatment methods.  One of the most popular light therapies being used is cold laser therapy or low level laser therapy.  When tissues are damaged, cells begin to die and scar tissue formation often begins.  Both of these consequences can slow or even limit the healing process.  Modern day cold laser units have been specifically engineered to produce the essential wavelengths of light necessary stimulate the damage cells, break up the formed scar tissue, and stimulate the healing process.

Cold laser units come in various sizes and shapes.  Often the units used are handheld and similar to the size of an average flashlight.  The treatment time required is usually dependent on two factors, the condition being treated and the size of the area affected.  A major advantage of cold laser therapy units is the ability to penetrate deep into tissues and joints while retaining the capability to also treat conditions closer to the skin surface.  People utilizing cold laser therapy as a non-invasive form of treatment report feeling little or no sensation during the treatment process.  Regardless of how deep the light waves penetrate, the energy is eventually absorbed by the damaged cell providing it with the boost to begin working.  Plants using the suns light to stimulate growth and healing is a good analogy to demonstrate the effects of cold laser therapy.   As these cells are repaired, the body is able to decrease the sensation of pain, reduce swelling, and accelerate the time required to heal.
