At Pain and Laser Centers of North Carolina in Greensboro, NC, we offer diagnosis and treatment for several types of conditions, including pain in the knees, legs, back, neck, foot, and other areas of the body. One of our specialties is laser therapy, which can help reduce pain, decrease swelling, and stimulate healing. Laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free way to treat several skeletal and neuromuscular conditions, including acute and chronic pain conditions. If you are recovering from an injury or from surgery, laser therapy can accelerate your recovery time. Laser therapy can also help improve flexibility and mobility. Our goal is to help you return to a healthy, pain-free life.
How Does It Work?
During laser therapy, our chiropractor will use a specialized medical device consisting of a power source and laser probe. This method uses wavelengths of light to penetrate areas of the pain that are in pain. The laser does not pass through clothing, so it will have to be applied directly to the skin. If you are concerned about feeling pain or discomfort during laser therapy, you do not need to worry. Laser therapy is not uncomfortable or painful and does not hurt the skin. All you will feel is a slight warmth of the laser on your body. The warmth is the byproduct of the energy being applied to your body. For many people, this is a soothing feeling. Most importantly, our chiropractor can modify the intensity of the laser according to your comfort.
Laser Therapy Treatment Sessions
At Pain and Laser Centers of North Carolina, we only carry the highest quality devices for laser therapy. We use Lasera therapy for our patients, including the K-Laser. As soon as your laser therapy session is finished, you can resume your normal daily activities. We do recommend that you do not overexert yourself so that your body is allowed to fully recover after the laser therapy session.
The duration of the laser therapy sessions or the number of sessions required is going to be different for each case. Our chiropractor can discuss this with you. In your first sessions, we will discuss the laser therapy treatment with you and answer any questions you may have about laser therapy.
