Laser Light Speeds Healing

Your cells love light! How are they going to get it? Through low level laser therapy (AKA photobiomodulation)! More than 2500 research reports and more than 125 randomized, double-blind clinical trials have show effectiveness for a myriad of conditions from addictions to weight loss. Some of the common reasons laser therapy would be used in a chiropractic practice are:
  • improving athletic performance
  • stress reduction
  • speed healing of sprains and strains (from sports injuries or accidents)
  • reduce nerve pain
  • arthritis (with restoration of cartilage as a side-effect)
  • disc degeneration (again research shows actual healing of the disc tissue!)
  • plantar fasciitis
  • osteoporosis
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • headaches (tension and migraine)
  • sinusitis
  • TMJ
