Lodes Chiropractic Center in Wilmington is dedicated to helping you heal and improving your health, wellness and mobility. Laser therapy, which is also referred to as low-level laser therapy and cold laser therapy, offers a natural approach to healing all types of injuries from sprains and strains to sport injuries to whiplash.
Each cell in your body has a small area that is light sensitive. This area can take certain wavelengths of light and convert them into energy in order to regenerate. It also very slightly warms the area, which helps increase circulation in and around your injury. This results in faster healing times and reduced levels of pain and inflammation.
Wilmington laser therapy offers a plethora of benefits, including improved healing times, lower levels of pain and improved range of motion. Cold laser therapy also helps improve circulation at the injury site and reduces swelling, edema and inflammation. Individuals who receive laser therapy may even notice less need for pain medication or anti-inflammatory medication.
Our Wilmington chiropractors use laser therapy to treat tendonitis, tennis elbow, sprains and strains, generalized muscle pain and soreness, acute and chronic back and neck pain, including whiplash, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Individuals with bursitis, fibromyalgia and arthritis may also benefit from laser therapy. Our chiropractors will evaluate your pain or injury and determine whether or not laser therapy is the right option for you.
In addition to laser therapy, we may recommend certain nutritional supplements from Medix4Life. These all-natural supplements are designed to help you recover from certain injuries and ailments, including surgeries, sport injuries or car accident related injuries, by stimulating your body into producing more stem cells. Adult stem cells are believed to help in the regeneration of injured tissues. They are produced in the bone marrow and in certain organs of the body.
When using Medix4Life along with laser therapy, you may even notice an improvement in the way your body digests and uses food as well as an increase in your cognitive function along with faster healing rates and benefits to your overall health.
Laser therapy with either of our chiropractors in Wilmington does not involve any preparation of the skin. At your appointment, our chiropractor will identify the area to be treated and place the hand-held laser wand over the area. The low-level laser light will penetrate deep into your tissue to help your body heal itself. Each treatment lasts between 30 seconds to several minutes. There is no recovery time needed after the treatment.
