Our goal is to help our patients feel better as quickly as possible. That’s why we offer specialized treatments like laser therapy. Our hot laser therapy is used in combination with chiropractic treatment to provide fast pain relief and to speed healing.
This medically advanced treatment reduces inflammation, and increases blood flow to the targeted areas.
It works in this way:
During treatment, the Chiropractic Assistant positions the hand-held laser one to two inches above the treatment area. The assistant moves the laser light back and forth, directing the laser’s energy to the injured or inflamed area. The treatment time is short, generally lasting from three to five minutes. During this pain-free therapy, you can expect to feel a soothing, warmth across the area being treated.
What’s going on behind the scene is more complex. The laser’s energy increases cellular metabolism, allowing your body to heal itself at a much faster rate than normally possible.
Depending upon your specific medical condition, anywhere from 5 to 15 chiropractic laser therapy treatments may be required to deliver the maximum benefit.
Laser therapy has been used in clinical settings for over 40 years and has been extensively studied. Unlike many traditional pain relief treatments, such as narcotic pain killers or steriod injections, laser therapy has no dangerous side effects.

- Neck pain
