Our founder, Dr. Timothy Wenneborg, has 24 years of extensive training in the field and is highly-trained in most advanced chiropractic techniques. One of the treatments we offer our patients is Springfield cold laser therapy, which is now a popular therapy for providing pain relief and inflammation for certain injuries or pains in the body.
Cold laser therapy is a highly effective treatment that can provide relieve for chronic or acute pain. This is a non-invasive treatment that uses low levels of lasers to help heal and strengthen tissues. Cold laser therapy is also called Photobiomodulation or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLT). Cold laser therapy can be used to improve tissue repair and to reduce pain and inflammation. The treatments take about ten minutes each and can be applied two to three times a week. Springfield cold laser therapy is a safe and effective way to achieve pain relief.
Cold laser therapy has been a chosen way to relieve pain for those suffering from sports injuries, arthritis, neuropathic pain, and back and neck pain. Many studies, and chiropractic patients, have proven the treatment to be effective. It uses specific wavelengths of light to help accelerate the healing process. Cold lasers are applied by handheld devices that are usually about the size of a flashlight. The laser is placed directly over the affected area for a short period of time, ranging from 30 seconds to several minutes – depending on the size of the area being treated. In technical terms, the non-thermal photons of light pass through the skin’s layers, as deep as 2-5 centimeters below the skin. The light is absorbed and interacts with certain parts of the cell, and is converted into usable energy. This is the theory behind how cold laser therapy helps to reduce pain and inflammation, and to reduce healing time.
