Get Relief From Your Shoulder Pain With Laser Therapy

laser therapy on shoulderPainful shoulder conditions, such as frozen shoulder, bursitis or a rotator cuff tear, can seriously affect your quality of life. This pain can be caused by a large number of problems, because the shoulder is a very moveable joint. The ball-and-socket joint lacks the same level of stability that most other joints the body have.

Whether it be the ligaments that hold the shoulder together, the muscles that support it, like the rotator cuff, as well as the labrum, which is a fibrocartilage complex, all of those can be injured, inflamed, or torn, which can lead to shoulder discomfort, inflammation, and painful movement.

The most common approach to treating shoulder pain is medication to reduce inflammation, prevent pain, or relax muscles that may be creating painful symptoms. This approach, however, doesn’t get to the root cause of the pain.

Healing Help With Class IV Laser

In addition to providing chiropractic care to address shoulder injuries, we also offer Class IV laser therapy at Parkside Health & Wellness Center. More powerful than a cold laser, the Class IV laser can penetrate up to 4 cm and is 24 times more powerful than a cold laser.

How it works is the laser floods the tissues with photons, energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This creates a cascade of healing responses in the body, reducing inflammation, and thus decreasing or even eliminating shoulder pain.

Laser therapy is particularly effective to speed up recovery after a shoulder surgery or sports injury.
