Laser Therapy at Carr Chiropractic Clinic

elbow laser therapyAlso known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser therapy, laser therapy employs low-intensity lasers to stimulate healing and reduce pain in damaged tissues. At Carr Chiropractic Clinic, we use this modality to target areas of inflammation, promote tissue repair, and alleviate pain.


Conditions It Can Address

Laser therapy can effectively treat a range of conditions, including

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sports injuries

Who Can Benefit?

LLLT can benefit many patient populations, including athletes. This modality can help to speed up recovery from sports injuries and enhance performance. Seniors with chronic pain or degenerative conditions may experience relief from arthritis-related discomfort. People who have acute or chronic musculoskeletal conditions, such as tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome, can also benefit from laser therapy.

How Does It Complement Chiropractic Care?

Laser therapy complements traditional chiropractic adjustments by providing an additional way to relieve pain and promote tissue healing. While chiropractic adjustments focus on restoring spinal alignment, LLLT targets soft tissue injuries, reducing inflammation and promoting cellular repair.

Combining chiropractic adjustments with laser therapy can enhance pain relief, allow patients to recover quicker from injuries, improve range of motion, and improve treatment outcomes. Laser therapy can help address soft tissue issues that may not be fully resolved with adjustments alone.
