The Chiropractic and Wellness Center of La Grange, IL, provides a variety of services that help patients with pain relief and overall health and well-being. We pride ourselves on our holistic, whole-person, systems-based philosophy. One of the treatments that the center offers is cold laser therapy. This cutting-edge laser technique is administered by Dr. James Young, our resident chiropractor with many years of experience.
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless approach that uses a low-level laser to stimulate the patient's body's tissues. A small, light-emitting laser machine will be placed over the target area for up to several minutes, and you may feel a slight warming sensation as the laser moves through the skin and into the tissues below. This process increases blood flow, reduces inflammation, and encourages regeneration in problem areas. A whole session may involve multiple target areas, and it may require multiple sessions to experience the full results. Unlike other medical lasers, the laser used is referred to as a "cold" laser because it does not generate much heat.
