Laser Therapy

Introducing the FX 635 Laser from Erchonia

The Chiropractic Wellness Centre is now offering Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) also known as Cold Laser.

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser operates under a principle of science known as photo-chemistry, and as the name implies, is the modulation of chemical and biochemical reactions through the absorption of photons or light energy. This treatment is a painless, sterile, non-ivasive, drugfree modality that is used for a variety of conditions such as acute or chronic pain. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation, enhanced blood and oxygen flow and prevents cell death. The laser can support muscle strength and improve range of motion by preventing tissue plasticity.

Clinical studies demonstrate that the positive outcomes associated with laser therapy are immediate and can last many weeks but like many therapies laser requires numerous treatments to effectively resolve the underlining etiologies responsible for producing pain. Laser therapy represents a therapeutic model that can serve both an early and late intervention role, but for long term benefits and prevention of an injury transforming into a chronic state, laser therapy should be applied early and often.
