Laser therapy has been in existence since the early 60’s in Russia (sixty years) and
is an integral part of their hospital system with up to twenty five laser units in
their laser therapy departments. Why? Because relative to the costs of surgeries
and medications and the cost of treating the side effects of these medications,
laser therapy is inexpensive, it works and there are relatively few side effects.
There are over 24,000 articles published on the scientific benefits of laser therapy
and there were 17 English speaking national laser therapy associations.
We use the cold laser therapy in our office to treat pain, inflammation, swelling,
and scar tissues from surgeries and injuries. We also do smoking cessation and
weight loss programs. We have had a number of doctors in our office for disc
problems in their neck and lower backs that they wanted to resolve without going
under the knife for surgery.

life. Most high performance professional athletes utilize chiropractic care as part
of their health care regime and enhanced performance and quicker recovery time
Our experience with acute traumas like car accidents and sports injuries as well
as chronic wear and tear problems respond faster when cold laser therapy and
Chiropractic are used together. All our cold laser therapy patients are entitled to a
chiropractic examination as part of their care with us. If the new laser patient has
an existing chiropractor ( and many do) then we encourage them to go back to
their chiropractor and continue with their care there.
