Let There Be Light

July 26, 2021

For people suffering from pain due to problems with their necks, backs, muscles, tendons and elbows, there is a light—a literal light!—at the end of the tunnel. Laser therapy is becoming more and more popular when it comes to treating many types of ailments. Pain from the aforementioned maladies, to name just a few, can limit your basic body movements and greatly hinder your quality of life. 

If you’re fed up with living with your pain, visit the professionals at the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic. We use a superb procedure known as cold laser therapy, which is also called low-level laser therapy (LLLT). It’s designed to ease your symptoms and restore proper function. 

Cold laser therapy harnesses and amplifies power from the unseen spectrum of light. This allows energy from the light photons to influence tissues up to two inches below the surface of the skin. Laser therapy is constructed to yield a healing effect in the body’s cells and structures. 

While other methods of treatments might disguise or cover up your situation, the laser light penetrates your tissue and accelerates and bolsters the recuperation activity. The effect of laser therapy is not just temporary relief, it builds up over time, so the more treatments you have, the stronger and more permanent the effect. Most people don’t feel anything during the treatment session. 

There are patients, however, who are aware of a minor prickly sensation. This is because the flow of more blood is being brought to the region being remedied. The laser device doesn’t emanate heat, so patients don’t feel any heat, warmth or any other physical signs during their sessions. 

At the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, we are committed to giving you a pain-free life. You can rest assured that you will receive the highest level of skilled and compassionate care as we work to relieve pain, improve motion and restore body function.
