Pain management is an everyday concern for millions of Americans who struggle with sciatica, spinal conditions, fibromyalgia, arthritis, laser therapyneck pain, and similar issues. Some patients have degenerative diseases while others are struggling after a sports injury or work accident. You don't have to continue to live with pain and you can avoid invasive procedures thanks to a treatment called laser therapy. This treatment is available at Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL.

About Laser Therapy
With a treatment called M6 cold laser therapy, chiropractors can successfully target the sources of pain in many of their patients. The laser emits waves of light energy that can heal ligaments, bone, muscle tissue more effectively and quickly compared to some surgeries or physical therapy. The light is powerful enough to stimulate activity in the cells to repair damage and reduce the sensation of pain. Yet, you have a pain-free experience when undergoing laser therapy—just relax for a few minutes and then you can go home.

Your Laser Therapy Appointment
Your Tampa, FL chiropractor will first identify the targeted area for your laser treatment based on your pain feedback, a visual examination, and X-rays if needed. The laser is pointed at the location where you're experiencing pain and delivers healing waves of energy. It may take a few sessions to feel significant pain relief.

Benefits of Choosing Laser Treatment 
Some patients tolerate pain because they want to avoid invasive surgeries or can't commit to time-consuming therapies. Laser treatment for pain comes with the following benefits:

- It is highly effective in many cases of chronic pain. 
- The treatment is fast—it takes just a few minutes per session. 
- There is no need for surgical incisions.
- You can avoid taking prescription pain medications on a daily basis.
- Laser therapy can also heal some wounds.

When you think of relaxing, you may envision getting a massage. However, massage therapy can do much more than simply relax your massage therapybody and mind. But what can massage therapy do for you? How does it work? Find out more about massage therapy with chiropractors Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Karen Derr, and Dr. Autumn Scaz at Sheldon Road Chiropractic and Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL.

What is massage therapy? 
Massage therapy uses hands-on manipulation of the body’s soft tissues to improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, enhance skin tone, reduce stress, and improve the functionality of the nervous system. While massage therapy can be used for relaxation, it can also help rehabilitate injuries or damage. Massage therapists specialize in and understand the body’s soft tissue and are able to pinpoint specific muscles or causes of injuries.

Understanding Massage Therapy 
Massage therapy focuses on the soft tissues in the body, such as the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues. The massage therapist will use their body to manipulate these tissues, pressing and rubbing them using their hands, fingers, forearms, or elbows. Massage therapists are certified to perform this therapy and have a solid understanding of the body’s soft tissues and how they work both separately and together.

Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL
Many people in various situations can benefit from massage therapy. Those with high levels of stress and those who play sports or have had muscle injuries in the past can benefit from massage. In addition to helping with injuries, massage can also prevent them, keeping the connective tissues limber and flexible. While massage therapy cannot replace medical care, it can help provide relief from symptoms of a variety of conditions like headaches, fibromyalgia, or anxiety. If you think you could benefit from massage therapy, consult with your doctor or massage therapist to determine if this is the best treatment for you.
