High-Intensity Laser Therapy at SouthWest Chiropractic

Reduce Your Pain and Heal Without Surgery

At SouthWest Chiropractic, we provide high-intensity laser therapy. Our advanced laser delivers light energy to the body’s cells that relieve pain and swelling, break up scar tissue and reset the chronic pain cycle. This unique therapy is FDA-approved as effective, safe and able to address acute or chronic pain. It’s been used in Europe for more than four decades. Elite athletes from all around the world rely on healing laser therapy to recover from their injuries.

Why Choose Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy doesn’t involve a temporary form of relief. It repairs the cause of your pain, the damaged cells of the body. Our Class IV laser penetrates deeply into the tissue to give long-lasting results. You often won’t need to keep taking pain medications or spinal injections that only provide a temporary respite. In some cases, you may be able to avoid surgery, saving time, money and a prolonged recovery.

There is a broad array of conditions that can benefit from laser therapy, such as

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches

  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Neuralgia
  • Neuropathy

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis elbow

Do you remember learning about photosynthesis in school? During this process, a plant uses the sun’s light energy and converts it into the chemical energy it needs to grow. When you have laser therapy, your body will convert the laser’s light energy into the chemical energy the body’s cells need to develop.

The benefits of laser therapy include

  • Reduces pain. Your adrenal glands and brain will be induced to release more of your natural painkillers such as endorphins and enkephalins.
  • Diminishes inflammation. The blood vessels of the body expand, and lymphatic drainage is activated, reducing your swelling.
  • Breaks up scar tissue. Scar tissue is weak and less elastic than normal tissues. It causes pain and leaves you likely to re-injure yourself. A laser will soften this tissue and make it more flexible.
  • Suppresses chronic pain signals. A laser light resets your body’s pain memories, which are located at nerve switching stations. The nerve signals that transmit the sensation of pain are suppressed so that they can’t reach the brain.
  • Creates new blood vessels. Our laser improves your circulation and enables new blood vessels to form. This part of the healing process allows new connective tissue to be created.
  • Quickens cell growth and tissue repair. When exposed to a laser, your cells are repaired faster. DNA and RNA within the cells that are responsible for repairs are put into motion.
  • Regenerates nerve cells. To address your injury, you need to re-grow nerve cells in the body. This regeneration improves the brain and nerves’ ability to communicate.

What to Expect

Our patients find that the warming sensation is soothing and relaxing. Laser therapy continues to provide benefits after you’ve completed a session, with each one building on top of the progress you’ve already made.

You may feel better after just a few sessions. Or you might feel an improvement over time. Certain injuries or conditions can take longer to heal than others.

Am I a good candidate for laser therapy?

A complimentary consultation with one of our doctors at SouthWest Chiropractic is available.

Would you like a second opinion? They will review your current medical records and any diagnostic imaging you have (MRIs, X-Rays, CT scans) to assess if you would benefit from laser therapy. (This second opinion consultation does not include a physical exam or new diagnostic testing.)

Seeking information and options for treatment from several specialists is encouraged as it will equip you to make the best choice for your care.
