Laser Therapy for Healing, Health & Wellness
Lodes Chiropractic Center is dedicated to helping you heal and improving your health, wellness and mobility. Laser therapy, using our Lumix Laser, offers a natural approach to healing all types of injuries from sprains and strains to sport injuries to whiplash.
How Laser Therapy Works
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.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
Laser therapy offers a plethora of benefits, including:
- Improved healing times,
- Lower levels of pain
- & Improved range of motion.
Lumix 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.

Your Laser Therapy Appointment With Our Chiropractors
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 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.
