Cold Laser Therapy in Crandall

Patient receiving laser therapyAre you tired of dealing with spinal and persistent extremity pain? Perhaps you’re looking for a state-of-the-art type of therapy to address your symptoms. Look no further. One of the most promising types of modalities we can offer today is cold laser therapy.

At Johnson Chiropractic, we’re pleased to offer patients Multiwave Locked System (MLS®) Laser Therapy, which is quickly becoming the standard of care for alleviating pain, reducing inflammation, and speeding recovery. The model we use is the M6, which features a robotized head that uniformly covers the entire target area and highlights multi-targets.

This FDA-cleared therapy is typically used for spinal, pain in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and ankles, but can cover a larger area so more areas of the body can be treated. “Patients are getting great results quickly with laser therapy at Johnson Chiropractic,” said Dr. Johnson.


10 Incredible Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy

  • Reduces Inflammation: MLS Laser Therapy has an anti-edema effect, as it widens blood vessels and activates the lymphatic drainage system, which drains swollen areas. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by inflammation or bruising.
  • Relieves Pain: You can experience pain relief, as MLS Laser Therapy blocks pain transmitted by nerve cells to the brain, which reduces nerve sensitivity. Also, due to
    the reduced inflammation, there is a decrease in pain and edema.
  • Accelerates Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: Photons of light from lasers penetrate tissue deeply and accelerate cellular growth and reproduction. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell, so that the cell can accept nutrients faster and dispose of waste products. Due to exposure to laser light, damaged cells are repaired faster.
  • Improves Vascular Activity: Laser light dramatically increases the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, which accelerates the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue.
  • Increases Metabolic Activity: MLS Laser Therapy produces higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
  • Stimulates Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points: MLS Laser Therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a noninvasive basis, resulting in musculoskeletal pain relief.
  • Reduces Fibrous Tissue Formation: MLS Laser Therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage that results from burns, cuts, scratches, or surgery.
  • Improves Nerve Function: Slow revival of nerve functions in injured tissue can lead to numbness. Laser light accelerates the process of nerve cell reconnection and boosts the amplitude of action potentials to enhance muscle healing.
  • Regulates the Immune System: Laser light directly affects immunity status by stimulating immunoglobulins and lymphocytes.
  • Heals Wounds Faster: Laser light stimulates fibroblast development in damaged tissue. Fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, the vital protein needed to replace old tissue or repair tissue injuries. As a result, MLS Laser Therapy is effective post surgically and in treating open wounds and burns.

What to Expect

True to its name, cold laser therapy initially feels cold, but it does warm up during your session. It’s painless, and you’ll feel a warm, tingling sensation by the end of the session. Depending on the area we will address, you’ll either sit or lie down. For example, if you’re getting cold laser therapy on your shoulder, you can sit in a chair.

Each session is quick, taking just 3-7 minutes per area.


How long does it take to experience results?

Many people can experience relief in just 1-2 sessions. Because every case is different, however, it may require more courses to experience alleviation of your symptoms.

Are there side effects associated with cold laser therapy?

In the clinical trials conducted, no side effects have been reported. That’s not the case with prescription medications and surgery, which often have associated risks.

Can I have laser therapy as a stand-alone treatment, or do I need to combine it with another modality?

Yes, it can be a stand-alone treatment, but many times we combine cold laser therapy with spinal decompression therapy.

Does insurance cover cold laser therapy?


Can I purchase a package of sessions?

Yes; we offer a package deal. You can purchase a certain number of sessions and use them when needed.
