You may have heard of low-level (or cold) laser therapy as a cosmetic treatment, or in the local news for assisting in recovery. Laser acupuncture therapy combines Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques with the amazing benefits of laser light. Depending on the frequency used, laser light has a wide range of health benefits, and laser acupuncture treatment delivers these directly to your meridian channels where much of our energy circulates.
There are many reasons why patients seek laser acupuncture in Chicago. For example, research shows that laser acupuncture effectively relieves pain and inflammation, including in conditions ranging from injury recovery to tendinitis to asthma.
Additionally, laser acupuncture is indicated in neurological conditions that involve paralysis, overactivity, or both. Clinical studies show reduced muscle spasms in children with cerebral palsy, and faster, improved recovery after stroke. As for overactivity, migraines and trigeminal neuralgia can be effectively relieved with laser acupuncture.
In a way, laser acupuncture acts as regenerative medicine, too. Its ability to enhance cell regeneration indicates its use in poor wound healing and scar reduction. Through improving circulation throughout the body, laser acupuncture can be an effective treatment for slow exercise recovery, fatigue, chronic wounds, and cold extremities. Improved regeneration and circulation can help a number of skin conditions, too, such as acne, eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
