Low Level Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy Special Offer
Today we’re excited to talk about Laser therapy at Tompkins Family Chiropractic. This was birthed out of the desire to take even better care of our patients. You see, over the last 18 years, we have been making corrections in the spine to relieve pressure on the nervous system, allowing the body to work better and feel better.
However, one of the things we wanted to try to accomplish was trying to decrease the healing time once these problems were corrected. We believe we have found an effective solution to that goal. We’re now introducing low-level laser therapy. A safe, non-invasive form of light therapy that is shown to be able to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue healing. This can happen anywhere in your body.
How It Works
Here’s how it works. The laser sends pulses of light at very specific wavelengths. It activates cells in the body to make certain changes. Damaged cells will rebuild, healthy cells will have increased mitochondrial production, and if you don’t remember your middle school science classes, the mitochondria is the energy producer in the cells. More energy in the cells, more function, more healing, more health.
The Ercohonia 635nm laser we use has been FDA approved for chronic neck, back, knee, and foot pain. So many of the typical conditions we see in our office can respond really well to laser therapy. But some of the most exciting research has been on the brain. And especially the brains of kids with autism. There’s a quadruple-blind study submitted to the FDA that showed kids with autism were subjected to one of 2 treatments one is the Erchonia low-level laser, and the other is just simply a red light. 2 times per week for 4 weeks so 8 treatments. The laser group of kids saw changes in behavior with significantly decreased aberrant behaviors as assessed by the ABC questionnaire compared to the fake laser group. This light pulsed over a very short period of time, over the brain for just eight visits changed these kids’ brains.
Imagine how life-changing that is! A treatment that you can’t even really feel can affect so many aspects of your body’s health. I’m excited about what the future holds for our patients.
So to recap, laser therapy at Tompkins Family Chiropractic will provide pain relief, reduced inflammation, and tissue regeneration in any part of the body.
