Pain specialists like chiropractors, physical therapists and the like, know how effective laser therapy treatments can be in not only reducing pain but it is also effective in helping with reducing inflammation not only in acute injuries but for patients suffering from arthritis.
Other patients who benefit from Laser Therapy for Pain Management are patients who suffer from:
- Tennis elbow
- Neck and Back Pain
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Injuries such as sprains
- Shoulder pain and inflammation
How does it Work?
The laser sends energy directly to the tissue helping to increase circulation in the injured or inflamed area. It does not use heat although some patients do feel some warmth in the area that is being treated.

This therapy helps with the drainage of the lymphatic system thereby reducing inflammation. It also helps heal wounds much faster and therefore helps many other patients who have had amputations, severe burns, open wounds or non-healing wounds that diabetic patients experience.
Pain management is a field where many practitioners get frustrated. In our clinic we see it all the time as a lot of the more difficult cases come in after they have seen everybody else and a chiropractor is their last option.
