Laser therapy is a comfortable method of reducing pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue healing.
The FDA approved laser therapy for the use of musculoskeletal injuries in 2002.
Heavily used in the professional sports arena for years, now this therapy is available to the general public in chiropractic and physical therapy offices.
The laser works by emitting 2 high powered wavelengths of infrared light 5 inches into the tissue. Those particular wavelengths have been proven to stimulate cells to uptake more oxygen and nutrients and also speed up the cell’s production of energy.
These two changes in the cell’s physiology have profound effects on the healing of tissue.
Some common conditions we treat with the laser are:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
- Rotator Cuff Tears
- Herniated Discs
- Hip Bursitis
- Runner’s Knee
We encourage you to have a first-hand experience in our practice. It’s easy to get started.
