Low Level Laser Therapy
Most people are aware that chiropractic care can be helpful for back or neck pain or at best a wide range of musculo-skeletal problems but are completely unaware that the benefits of chiropractic care are largely due to improved nerve function. While mobilizing joints and improving spinal structure is helpful, improving nerve function is far more beneficial. Improved motor nerve function directly affects joint biomechanics, posture, muscle tension, balance, range of motion, and coordination. Improved autonomic nerve function positively affects organs, glands, blood vessels, and most importantly the immune system.
Neurologically-based Chiropractic as practiced at our Integrative Healthcare practice, seeks to draw upon the inherent healing power of the body. Its focus is the detection and reduction of nerve interference or subluxations. Because the nerve system controls and regulates all bodily systems and functions chiropractic should be the starting point on your journey to health and wellness.
Before chiropractic care is recommended in our office, a thorough health evaluation and analysis is performed. This includes a complete health history, a postural assessment, and an objective measure of both the motor and autonomic nerve systems via surface Electro-myography, and Thermography Spinal Scans. A plan of action including frequent re-evaluations and a projected timeline for corrective, stabilization, and wellness care is discussed along with the exact cost for care.
Dr. Mancuso influences nerve function through an exchange of energy known as an adjustment. A quick, precise, light force is applied to the affected nerves by a combination of manual and instrument techniques. These are quite painless, extremely safe, and over time help develop new healthier nerve patterns. Chiropractic care is gentle and extremely effective in helping adults and children achieve their full potential.
Low Level Laser Therapy has been used in most of the world for over thirty years and is considered routine. Based on over two thousand studies around the world, we can safely say that low level lasers have an important positive biological effect. In other words, light at this level is not only beneficial but very safe. Our laser is registered with the FDA as a Class 1 non-significant risk device. IT WORKS BY RESTORING ENERGY IN THE FORM OF ELECTRONS AND PHOTONS TO DAMAGED CELLS WHICH ALLOW THESE CELLS TO REPAIR AND REGENERATE.
Low Level Laser has been used successfully for the treatment of traumatic, inflammatory and over-use injuries, pain relief, and healing wounds such as cold sores and ulcers. This type of therapy has also been used to prevent or minimize keloid scar formation and adhesions, to reduce edema, and to reduce pain from surgical and other treatments. Use of low level laser therapy can also encourage the formation of collagen and cartilage in damaged joints and the repair of tendons and ligaments. In addition, we use laser light to stimulate acupuncture points in a non-invasive, pain-free manner.
Over 2500 clinical research studies have shown that low level laser therapy:
