If you’ve tried other methods or looking for something different, our expert chiropractors in Woodbury, MN, can provide laser therapy that quickly reduces pain and inflammation as well as shortens recovery time!
Laser therapy is a treatment that uses focused light to stimulate photobiomodulation (PBM). The laser interacts with the mitochondria, specifically the Cytochrome C system. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism, which can decrease pain, decrease inflammation as well as accelerate the healing process!
You may have heard of cold laser or low-level laser therapy. These terms have been replaced with photobiomodulation (PBM), as it more appropriately defines the actual process of what is happening.
You will feel a sense of warmth with each laser treatment, as the laser reaches damaged cells and tissues. Results are typically faster than many other therapeutic modalities. Improvement can often be seen after the first or second treatment however, results will not be overnight. As with other forms of treatment, results from laser therapy are cumulative; it takes time. Our Woodbury chiropractors at MN Spine and Sport use the Diowave 60-Watt Laser, the strongest and most effective laser available!
