Chiropractic Care & Red Light Therapy

With today’s active lifestyle, chiropractic visits are becoming more popular. Lower back and upper neck and shoulder pain often occurs when people are sitting in front of their computer screens or working laborious jobs lifting heavy objects. Approximately 31 million Americans experience low back pain at any given time and at least 70 million adults in the United States deal with some type of chronic pain. 

 

Irritated joints, strained muscles and injured disks are all common causes of back pain. Poor posture, being significantly overweight and arthritis from aging can add stress to your back, intensifying the pain.

 

Many people visit a chiropractor to treat lower back and chronic pain in multiple areas of their body. Common pain areas include:

 

  • Neck, back & shoulder pain 
  • Rheumatoid & Osteoarthritis 

  • Headaches & pinched nerves

  • Scoliosis

  • Fibromyalgia 

  • Other degenerative conditions

 

No one wants to live in pain, but natural solutions like chiropractic care and red light therapy should be considered when exploring methods of pain management & relief.

Chiropractic Care 

 

As more people consider taking more personal responsibility for their health & wellness, more are moving away from invasive treatment and potentially harmful pharmaceutical drugs and finding more natural alternatives for pain relief. Chiropractic care is a form of complementary medicine based on the idea that your body can heal itself with the help of specific hands-on manipulation from a trained professional.

 

Other common reasons to visit a chiropractor are: 

 

  • Stress relief 

  • Posture correction 

  • Mood elevation 

  • Immune system support 

  • Improve sleep cycle

 

Visiting the chiropractor may help improve quality of life, especially when red light therapy is paired with each adjustment.

LED Light System 


Low level laser is one of the methods that chiropractors may adopt as part of their practice. Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, has been used in the U.S medical and wellness industry since the 1990’s. Red light therapy has been proven to increase blood flow and lymphatic circulation, decrease pain, and stimulate many cellular processes that accelerate healing. Photobiomodulation promotes cellular level healing. It’s comparable to Photosynthesis for plants, when light is used for producing energy. Light also helps the human body to produce energy and recover faster. As the light penetrates into body cells, it encourages the release of nitric oxide from the mitochondria. The release of nitric oxide helps dilate blood vessels and stimulate ATP production, this accelerates muscle recovery, and tissue strengthening. This gives us opportunities to maximize our wellness and maintain active lifestyles.
