At Upchurch Chiropractic, we integrate a wide range of therapies and treatments in our care plans, including laser therapy. This safe and painless treatment uses a class IV therapeutic laser to relieve pain and swelling and boost tissue growth. When you visit our clinic in Royal Oak, MI, you'll have access to laser therapy and other forms of treatment.
How Laser Therapy Can Use Used In Chiropractic Care
Laser therapy uses focused light to stimulate tissue, leading to tissue regeneration and growth. The light energy of the laser can interact with the cells in the body, triggering a process called photobiomodulation. It's a targeted process that can treat tissue damage and help the body recover from wounds.
We use laser therapy alongside other forms of treatment, like spinal adjustments, to promote whole-body wellness. Laser therapy can be a highly effective treatment for many conditions, including:
- Back, neck, and shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- Muscle strains
- Ligament sprains
- Sport injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
- Nerve pain
- Arthritis and gout pain
Our chiropractor will evaluate your condition to determine the ways in which you will benefit from laser therapy.
Aspen Cold Laser Therapy
At Upchurch Chiropractic we use Aspen Cold Laser Therapy, an advanced treatment that uses a Class IV Laser. The treatment allows damaged cells in the body to absorb energy from laser light, improving cellular health. Since the treatment is highly targeted, it will only affect damaged tissues.
The process boosts blood circulation and stimulates cells, helping to accelerate cellular healing. It can lead to improved nerve function, ease pain, and has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Cold laser therapy can also encourage the body to produce more collagen.
Treatment with an Aspen later is pain-free and only takes a few minutes. While the laser treatment should immediately help relieve symptoms like pain and swelling, the therapeutic effects of the laser will continue long after your treatment. Laser light can trigger many healing responses within the body, helping your body to quickly heal itself.
