Here at Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we specialize in laser therapy. We are proud to serve patients in Durham and the surrounding communities.
Laser Therapy (Photobiomodulation) is a modality that reduces inflammation and ultimately results in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is effective in treating acute pain, chronic condition, and post-op pain.
Laser Therapy utilizes your body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite fast treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up 24 hours after treatment. When the light energy passes through your skin and reaches the injured area, the energy is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in your cells. When cells absorb this light energy, it will assist with normalizing damaged or injured tissue, reducing pain, inflammation, edema, and overall healing time. The laser has the ability to penetrate two to five centimeters below the skin delivering up to 16 watts at 980 nanometers. When the Infrared/LED pads are applied to the area the laser delivers 20 watts per pad at 860 nanometers which facilitates the healing and reduction of pain and inflammation.
Laser treatment can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, failed neck and back surgeries, arthritis, carpal tunnel, and plantar fasciitis are just some of the conditions we can treat.
Our entire staff wants to assist you in getting to the root of your problem as quickly as possible. We understand the many benefits of cold laser therapy and will always go above and beyond for you.
