Orange County Cold Laser therapy is making waves in the chiropractic scene in recent years because of its immense advantages, as compared to the risks. If you were advised by a medical professional like a Newport Beach chiropractor, to consider Cold Laser for your treatment, you should know whether the positives effects will outweighs the risks--no matter how small.
Cold Laser therapy accurately targets the tissues of your body that needs relief. The treatment involves using low-temperature laser which gives heat to stimulate healing but not to the point of pain. It is non-surgical, therefore patients who have undergone the treatment do not need to have a prolonged recovery period. Neither do they need any medications. Studies so far have shown that there is no serious side effects to properly-applied cold laser therapy.
Of course, there are two sides to a coin. Cold laser therapy will take several treatments, from 8 to 30 sessions. You also have to check with your medical insurance if they will cover this treatment because Medicare and Medicaid do not. The treatment should not be given to pregnant women. Nor should the laser be used directly on the eyes, thyroid, cancerous-looking lesions or carcinoma.
