Cold Laser Therapy helps expedite the healing process for patients. This includes sports injuries, along with stretched ligaments or torn tendons. The technique also helps in muscle recovery due to sprains, wrenches, or other extensive problems. Chiropractic can easily rectify or correct muscle tissues problems or issues.

A chronic pain study at the University of Washington School of Medicine recently compared which treatments were most effective at reducing pain for neuromuscular diseases and found that chiropractic scored the highest pain relief rating (7.33 out of 10), scoring higher than the relief provided by either nerve blocks (6.75) or opioid analgesics (6.37).
The scientific review published in 2010 titled Effectiveness of Manual Therapies:
The UK Evidence Report summarized the scientifi c evidence on the eff ectiveness of joint manipulation and mobilization for musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal conditions. The authors reported that, according to current standards of scientific evidence, spinal manipulation/mobilization is effective in adults for acute, subacute, and chronic low back pain, migraine and cervicogenic headaches, cervicogenic dizziness, acute/subacute neck pain, and several extremity joint conditions. These researchers also supported the safety and appropriateness of spinal manipulation/mobilization for all of the conditions noted (Bronfort et al., 2010). In an accompanying commentary, Scott Haldeman, D.C., M.D., Ph.D., an internationally-recognized spine care specialist and researcher, concluded that the scientifi c community now recognizes that manipulation is of value for the vast majority of patients who seek chiropractic care (Haldeman & Underwood, 2010).

When I grew up on the East Coast, I had little or no contact with chiropractors. Back then, most people I knew and most medical centers did not regard them as real medical practitioners. Years later, after I came out to the Mid-West, I found a much wider acceptance of chiropractors. Over the past 40 years of living in Minnesota and Wisconsin, I have known many people who have gone to chiropractors and who firmly believe that they were being helped. Most of the people I have known were suffering from back problems. Here is one comment regarding chiropractors from an obviously very satisfied patient:
“I go to a chiropractor irregularly, usually when my neck is bothering me. He uses heat, ultrasound, and massage therapy to undo the tension in my back and neck, caused by two vertebrae in my back that have been out of alignment since I was…

Medical researchers at the University of Massachusetts compared the health outcomes and/or disability episodes of patients with work-related low back pain, depending on what type of provider they saw. They focused primarily on MD (medical physician), PT (physical therapist), and DC (chiropractor) care.
The disability statistics were quite interesting:
For PTs: HR = 2.0
For MDs: HR = 1.6
For DCs: HR = 1.0
Statistically, this means you are twice as likely to end up disabled if you got your care from a PT, rather than from a chiropractor.
You’re also 60% more likely to be disabled if you choose an MD to manage your care, rather than a chiropractor.
The medical authors concluded:
“In work-related nonspecific low back pain, the use of health maintenance care provided by physical therapist or physician services was associated with a higher disability recurrence than with chiropractic services or no treatment”.

Studies of all types have been done to see what is the most effective care for a patient with low back pain. This study found that patients were very satisfied with the care and attention they received from their Chiropractor. So if you are looking for a doctor who will listen then maybe you need to think about see if a Chiropractor can help you with your joint pain.
“We compare health maintenance organization enrollees’ evaluations of the care they received from family physicians and Chiropractors for low back pain. Patients of chiropractors were three times as likely as patients of family physicians to report that they were very satisfied with the care they received for low back pain (66% versus 22%, respectively).
Compared with patients of family physicians, patients of chiropractors were much more likely to have been satisfied with the amount of information they were given, to have perceived that their provider was concerned about them, and to have felt that their provider was comfortable and confident dealing with their problem.
Although the more positive evaluations of chiropractors may be related to differences in the patient populations served by the two providers or to benefits of spinal manipulation, it is suggested that a potentially more potent force–the therapeutic effect of the patient and provider interaction itself–may explain the observed differences.”

Norgren et al., evaluated 5,093 Scandinavian soldiers to determine risk factors in producing back pain and clearly demonstrated that decreased spinal range of motion, particularly segmental mobility correlated with tenderness, was a predisposer to the increased incidence and severity of low back pain. These studies clearly support the idea that global and therefore segmental hypomobility is a predisposer and precursor to increased injury and disability.

The flip side of this equation is demonstrated in the Meade et al., study in which it was clearly demonstrated that in those low back pain patients who received chiropractic manipulation, and therefore attained documented superior restoration of mobility or increased global (and therefore segmental) mobility (as opposed to the control group of physical therapy patients), the chiropractic patients had less reoccurrences and complications, less need of additional treatment, and less disability.
