Chiropractic laser and electro therapy combines adjustments with laser treatment to provide patients with additional relief from uncomfortable symptoms due to chronic pain. Cold laser treatments, or low-level laser treatments or cold therapy, is an innovative treatment modality that can reduce inflammation and pain while promoting your body’s natural healing response.
The Top 5 laser and electro therapy articles from the Chiropractic Economics website in 2021 included the topics of laser for acute shoulder injuries, laser body sculpting and cellulite removal as a new income stream, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy for back pain, and photobiomics, the emerging field of combining laser and nutrition therapy.
“Our understanding of the microbiome’s role in health and disease is expanding rapidly,” writes Robert Silverman. “The emerging science of photobiomics — the combined effects of light on metabolic factors, the microbiome and the interaction between them — is opening many new avenues for effective patient treatment. The future will bring us even more ways to combine nutrition with our improving knowledge of the microbiome and our enhanced knowledge of PBM to help optimize our patient outcomes.”
Here are the Top 5 most popular laser and electro therapy articles from 2021:

Secondary adhesive capsulitis is usually preceded by some sort of trauma or surgery that forced immobilization of the shoulder. By addressing the inflammation first, the inflammatory nociceptive pain subsided and shoulder range of motion was restored before the stiffening phase could begin. While both chiropractic adjustments and low-level laser therapy have been shown to be effective at treating adhesive capsulitis after the stiffness phase, the patient’s lifestyle modifications and prognosis are better if treated earlier.

Currently, body sculpting and cellulite removal and reduction is basically offered only by high-end medical spas, plastic surgeons and MDs. They charge anywhere from $200-$800 per 30-minute session and it is a fully staff-driven service after consultation, exam and report of findings, which includes areas to be treated and number of sessions needed. This is an exploding area in the cosmetic realm and patients will pay your fee for excellent service and excellent results.

We now understand that Highly Focused ElectroMagnetic (HIFEM) treatments are required to induce structural changes in human tissue and achieve therapeutic endpoints. The first successful clinical application of HIFEM was demonstrated by a company that received FDA approval in 2000. This company developed the first non-invasive electromagnetic stimulation device which was used for the purposes of pelvic floor strengthening. Strengthening the pelvic musculature with this device was almost curative for patients, mainly female, with urinary incontinence.

“I find low-level laser therapy very beneficial for my patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes, and an important adjunct with other interventions such as manual therapy and therapeutic exercise.”

Photobiomodulation (PBM) can be a valuable adjunctive treatment for metabolic and inflammatory diseases. When PBM modulates the gut microbiome in combination with targeted nutritional therapy — or photobiomics — laser therapy for these diseases becomes even more effective. The value is evident in treating gut issues, low vagal tone and autoimmunity.
