Light therapyHave you ever played laser tag before? You grab your plastic, little gun, you get a vest placed on your chest, and then you run around in the dark for 15 minutes until the time is up and you check your score. Sounds silly and unproductive, right? Laser therapy, on the other hand, is nothing like that. If you are going to do any kind of laser therapy, it should be at Caron Chiropractic Clinic in St. Paul, MN. If you are searching for a way to promote natural healing and pain relief within your body, laser therapy is the perfect choice for you.

What is Laser Therapy?

Since so many people have asked us what laser therapy actually is, we felt that it was important to go over it. Our low-level laser lights are made up of compressed light that is one precise color, travels in a straight line, is one single wavelength, and has the capability to concentrate its beam to one specific location or spot. Due to these characteristics, when this laser treatment is done, it does no damage to the skin, has no known side effects, and yet it still is able to promote natural healing and pain relief to specified areas. How does it do this? When the low laser penetrates beneath the surface of the skin and into the problem area, our immune response kicks in. It sends anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive cells that affect not just that portion of your body, but the entire body itself.

How does it Help?

So the question, is how exactly is our laser therapy used to benefit our patients? By using this laser, we help to alleviate both acute and chronic pain in our patients. Laser therapy increases the blood supply to the area, stimulating the immune system and nerve function. This increases the blood supply, develops the collagen and muscle tissue, and promotes new and healthy cells and tissue. All of this ultimately generates wound healing, clot formation, and reduces inflammation to decrease pain.
