Chiropractic services aren’t just for people with general back pain. Those with headaches and migraines, scoliosis, sciatica, personal injuries or ones due to a sports or an auto-accident, pregnancy pain, or even those with sinusitis, allergies, and ear infections can benefit from a visit to their chiropractor. At Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Wenneborg will examine the structure and function of the spine and determine specific chiropractic treatments. Whether you have chronic or acute pain, cold laser therapy in Springfield is a highly effective treatment that can provide relief.
This non-invasive, non-thermal, fast and painless treatment uses low levels lasers to heal and strengthen tissue. Cold Laser Therapy in Springfield is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms, and increase functionality. Cold lasers are handheld devices and are often the size of a flashlight. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the dose provided by the cold laser unit. During this time, the non-thermal photons of light that are emitted from the laser pass through the skins layers. When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorized to eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism.
