We are now offering laser therapy as a treatment option to add to our patient’s care plans.
Laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Laser treatment can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions to eliminate pain and swelling, increase circulation, and promote tissue repair.
Laser treatments typically take about 15 minutes and can be administered by a chiropractor or staff member trained in laser treatments. During each treatment, the infrared laser light interacts with tissue as the increased metabolic activity within the cell results in the nutrients being transported across the cell membrane. This initiates an increased production of cellular energy, resulting in the accelerated healing of injury and reduction of pain.
Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be effective and safe. The frequency and quantity of treatments depends on the area being treated and although you may feel an improvement after one treatment, anywhere from 6 to 12 treatments may be optimal for lasting improvement.
Laser therapy can be used for a variety of conditions, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Neck pain
- Tennis elbow
- Lower back pain
- Muscle strains
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Shoulder, back and knee pain
- Sports injuries
- Auto and work related injuries
