Chiropractors Who Use Lasers

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear lasers? Do you think of crazy sci-fi movies with outer space action sequences and giant flying ships that eviscerate enemy targets on command? Or maybe you think of, arguably the most famous laser, the lightsaber and advanced battles with the best warriors in the galaxy. What if the word medical was attached to the word laser? What comes to mind then? What do you picture when you hear the term medical laser? You might think of laser eye surgery. It’s not uncommon. Would you mention a chiropractor’s office? Most people don’t usually consider lasers being incorporated into chiropractic care, but did you know chiropractors use lasers too? Do you know any chiropractors who use lasers? And what could they possibly use them for? The chiropractic team at Total Wellness Solutions uses lasers, and they use them to help patients have a speedy recovery. 

 

What Lasers Do Chiropractors Use? 

Chiropractors use Class IV lasers to treat discomfort and improve patient recovery time. Class IV lasers are used in a treatment known medically as laser therapy, which can be combined with spinal adjustments to help patients recover from various conditions. Laser therapy uses light rays in a recovery process known as photobiomodulation (PBM). Photobiomodulation is when light rays enter cellular tissue at the injury site to trigger increased activity in cellular metabolism. The doctor places the laser directly on the skin or over the treatment site, so light can penetrate the skin and promote healing in the form of “pain relief, muscle relaxation, decreased inflammation, and tissue regeneration”. When you schedule your initial consultation with the Total Wellness Solutions chiropractic team, they will go over your condition and outline a plan. This plan will include duration, length of light exposure, and expected results at its conclusion. Laser therapy is safe, FDA approved and provides patients with a more appealing alternative to surgery and prescription medication.   

Conditions Treatable with Laser Therapy 

There are so many benefits to laser therapy, and many conditions are treatable with a Class IV laser. At Total Wellness Solutions, we try to sort them into five categories: inflammatory conditions, pain management, muscle injuries and disorders, connective tissue injuries and disorders, and joint injuries and disorders. Some examples of each are listed below. 

Inflammatory Conditions: Bursitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Edema, Plantar Fasciitis, Muscle Spasms

Pain Management: Fasciitis, Fibromyalgia, Inflammation, Muscle Spasms, Myofascial Pain. 

Muscle Injuries and Disorders: Muscle Bruises/Contusions, Muscle Contractures, Muscle, Ruptures, Muscle Spasms, Restricted Range Of Motion or Stiffness. 

Tissue Injuries and Disorders: Muscle Spasms, Sprains, Strains, Tendon Ruptures, Tendonitis
