Cold Laser Therapy in Thunder Bay

As a common complement to our chiropractic care adjustments, we at Santin Chiropractic offer cold laser therapy. A trusted, safe, and effective modality, cold laser therapy is a way for us to help reduce pain and promote healing in your body on a cellular level.

When simple adjustments are not giving you the results you need on their own, we know as a goal-oriented practice that we need to make a change. One of the options is to introduce the cold laser method to you, as it is useful for many patients, including helping those who are attempting to recover from an injury or need their body to function at a higher level.

There’s no risk of burns or significant pain, as it is a non-invasive procedure that stimulates the production of ATP, the energy source for cells, in the area receiving care. While that may sound science-y and weird, the experience is not scary. You will receive calm, gentle care in an area likely in a lot of pain and discomfort.

How it Works

The effectiveness of cold laser therapy lies in the ability to trigger the body to heal itself. Penetrating targeted tissue, laser light stimulates mitochondria which increases tissue integrity and fuels cell repair and regeneration. This helps to reduce pain, scar tissue and swelling while increasing mobility, circulation and cell growth to stimulate nerve function for a variety of conditions.

Injuries and Other Reasons for Cold Laser

There are multiple roads that can lead to cold laser therapy. Many people receiving this modality of care arrived via an injury in a sport or physical activity. Whether you are playing basketball or in competitive dance, a sprained ankle or similar injury is unfortunately too common.

An acute sprain or strain is the primary reason individuals are recommended for cold laser therapy. We believe it is not a replacement for chiropractic adjustments, and we do not use it to address low back pain or neck issues as adjustments and other modalities do.

We view cold laser therapy as a complementary method that can be a safe, pain-free way to get the results you desire.
