Trempealeau and Independence Chiropractic

Class IV Laser Treatments

What is Laser Treatment?

We have 2 different Lasers at Trempealeau Family Chiroptractic. The cold Laser Treatment, also known as Low Level Light Therapy, has been found to be very effective for both chronic pain and acute injury. The visible red light emits frequencies to the treated area, which promotes healing. This happens because the frequencies increase the energy levels in the cells and the communication between the cells. The results are decreases in inflammation, increases in blood flow, and improvement in neurotransmitter release. Our class IV laser is similar to our cold laser but 4-5 times stronger. Our cold laser is 5 watts while our class IV is 40 watts.

Laser treatments can be used right after a new injury to speed healing, restore joint function, and stop further injury. Bodies that have endured chronic injury can benefit through pain reduction, improved muscle strength, and increased joint movement. Laser works best on ACUTE conditions.

Some issues that laser treatments are effective in treating:

Sports injuries
Sprains and strains
Chronic inflammation
Post surgery recovery
Knee pain
Hip pain
Frozen shoulder
Planter Fasciitis
Plus many more
