If you're reluctant to use medication or to schedule invasive procedures such as surgery to ease the pain of aching bones, joints, tendons, muscles, and connective tissue, a visit to your chiropractor at Corsicana Chiropractic to discuss the benefits of light therapy could be the solution.
What Is Light Therapy?
LED light therapy is a treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to promote good health. This common treatment you can get from your chiropractor is useful for many applications, including:
- Pain relief
- Wound healing
- Relief of inflammation
- Muscle recovery
- Improvement in mood
Light therapy is non-invasive, which makes it an ideal chiropractic treatment for many medical issues. If you're interested in learning more about how light therapy can make you feel better, more energized, and more mobile, talk with Dr. Eeds today.
How Does Light Therapy Work?
The type of light therapy Dr. Eeds uses is called photobiomodulation. It involves placing nonthermal LED lights on or near your affected areas and allowing the light to bring about healing. This technique has been used by major sports teams for years, including many Olympic teams. It's useful in treating sports injuries, plantar fasciitis, pulled hamstrings, and more.
During your light therapy session, your chiropractor exposes the target area on your body to the correct dose of light to promote cellular healing. The practice has been used by NASA to help correct some of the effects of zero gravity on astronauts, and it's approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for medical applications. It's not only non-invasive, but it may provide results that startle you with its effectiveness.
