Cold Laser Therapy @ Care Chiropractic in Marion:

Care Chiropractic in Marion is proud to announce the addition of a class 4 Cold Laser to our practice in the Cedar Rapids area. Dr. Sean Dunkle made the decision to add a class 4 Cold Laser to his Marion chiropractic office after recently expanding.  Cold laser therapy is used to significantly accelerate pain relief and healing, and we have seen amazing results with our patients.

Doctors in over 30 countries use it to assist in both chronic and acute pain for over 300 different conditions. This powerful, pain-free and non-invasive treatment uses infrared laser energy in the form of photons to help reduce pain and speed the healing of inflamed or damaged tissues. Once the light energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, it is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants (sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow).  When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorized to eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism.

Arthritis, degenerative joint disease, fractures, joint problems, nerve damage, and soft tissue injuries are among the many conditions that respond rapidly with cold laser therapy.

Each laser therapy session treatment takes between 12-15 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated and the particular condition. First the area is treated with ice for about 8-10 minutes then the area is treated with the cold laser between 2-4 minutes depending on the area.  Treatment frequency varies from daily to several times a week.   Most patients experience a 60%-70% improvement after 5-6 visits.

Laser Therapy is a safe and effective form of therapy that can be combined with other types of treatments including chiropractic adjustments, massage, soft tissue mobilization and electrotherapy. Please call Care Chiropractic in Marion Iowa @ 377-7331 to schedule an appointment.
