Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy offers an array of relief.

Imagine the surprise when researchers learned that certain light frequencies could actually reduce inflammation and enhance the healing process! Fairfax Chiropractic has cold laser!

When patients learn that we use laser therapy in our practice, they have visions of a powerful, steel-cutting beam of light. The “cold” laser we use has only a tiny fraction of the power. Instead, its value comes from the frequency of the light it emits, not its intensity.

Specific Wavelengths

Instead of the full spectrum of light that comes from the sun, our low level laser produces light in a narrow frequency. Frequencies in the red portion of the rainbow are shown to assist the healing of soft tissues. Apparently, cells of our body have receptors that are sensitive to light.

How Does It Work?

How can certain frequencies of light speed up or slow down biological processes? Many theories have been suggested, but from practical application with real patients, we know it works for:

  • Arthritic Knee Pains
  • Inflammation reduction in Sinuses and Ankles
  • Pain management (No OPIOIDS)
  • Cell healing regeneration
  • Tendonitis,Sciatica & Post Surgical failures

While scientists debate the mechanism by which low level laser works and publish their work in the scientific literature, our patients are just delighted that it works!

We have lots of patients receive acupuncture and then ask for Cold Laser on the same day.  Please make an appointment for both if you like.
