What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is one of the healing tools available at One Life Chiropractic. The chiropractic practice has a grade IV deep-tissue laser that uses photobiomodulation (light-induced biological reaction) to stimulate your body’s natural healing powers.

During laser therapy at One Life Chiropractic, the laser light penetrates the skin, aiming at the underlying tissue, muscle, and other structures. The laser light stimulates cell energy production, initiating the healing process.

The grade IV deep tissue laser is high-powered but uses low-level light, so there’s no damage to your skin.

What does laser therapy treat?

The providers at One Life Chiropractic use laser therapy to treat acute injuries and chronic pain conditions. They may recommend laser therapy to treat your:

  • Sports injuries
  • Car accident injuries
  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Herniated disc
  • Leg pain
  • Whiplash
  • Headache
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder pain
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
  • Arthritis

One Life Chiropractic often uses laser therapy to address chronic pain and inflammation affecting muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

They may also recommend laser therapy to help with sleep. Pain conditions make it hard to get adequate sleep, placing extra stress on the body and worsening your pain.

What can I expect during laser therapy?

Your provider at One Life Chiropractic customizes your laser therapy treatment based on your diagnosis and symptoms and reviews the details at your consultation. Laser therapy is noninvasive and relatively painless.

While you lie back on the treatment table, your provider places the laser device on your skin and activates the light energy. You may feel a tingling sensation during laser treatment. Most people tolerate the treatment without discomfort.

You can resume your usual activities after your laser therapy unless your provider at One Life Chiropractic says otherwise.

When can I expect to see results from laser therapy?

Your provider at One Life Chiropractic explains when you can expect to see results from laser therapy. Results depend on the severity of your injury or condition.

It takes time for your body to heal on its own, but you may notice improvements in your pain and body function soon after you start your laser therapy. You may need a series of laser therapy sessions to get the best outcomes.
