Light therapy, or laser is one of the many services available at Ezrin Family Chiropractic. Waban chiropractor Dr. Ezrin uses light to treat different types of pain and conditions from pain, muscle pain and TMJ to fibromyalgia, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. You may find relief from your musculoskeletal pain with laser light treatments which have been proven to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling while accelerating the healing process and strengthening damaged tissue.
Light therapy is a low-laser therapy that harnesses and magnifies energy from an invisible spectrum of light. The laser gives the light ability to reach tissue that is up to two inches below your skin's surface. The light therapy process delivers energy and therapeutic light into cells that have been damaged so that the healing and repair process is increased. Laser therapy is safe, has been cleared by the FDA and has been used around the world for about twenty years. Dr. Ezrin finds it to be a valuable complement to your wellness care chiropractic program.
Laser light therapeutic treatment durations depend on your individual needs. They can last as little as sixty seconds or take up to twenty minutes. Dr. Ezrin will schedule an average of 8-15 treatments depending on what you are being treated for and other factors involved in your chiropractic care program and wellness care routine. While light treatments may provide quick relief, it does not mean you are healed right when the pain subsides. It is suggested that you complete all treatments; this will increase the chances of long-term success.
Actual results and effects of laser therapy on back pain and other types of muscular pain can begin right at the time of treatment, but normally is noticeable several hours after your treatment. You may feel pain relief and increased range of motion immediately, but chronic and severe conditions generally take several sessions for significant results. Laser therapy's healing effects on the cells, muscles and structures of the body are long-lasting and can be permanent. The effect of laser therapy is cumulative over time so the more treatments you have the more permanent the results.
