Cold Laser Therapy Plano

Cold laser therapy is a treatment offered in our office that utilizes specific wavelengths of light that stimulate healing, eliminate pain and reduce swelling. There are many advantages to this treatment, including that it is noninvasive, does not use prescription medication and has no serious side effects.

A Class IV Quad Laser

Our laser has four different wavelengths. With a deep penetrating ability, it’s appropriate for conditions such as

  • Disc injuries
  • Neck pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Low back pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • TMJ dysfunction

You can use the laser anywhere on the body, addressing your needs from head to toe.

How Laser Therapy Works

When the laser is applied, it speeds up the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell, responsible for producing energy. By accelerating mitochondria production, we create greater cellular regeneration. You’ll find that injuries that would normally take some time to heal get better much more quickly with our powerful form of laser.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does our new cold laser feel like?

Unlike other, older models of cold laser, our laser produces a gentle thermal effect (which means it feels a little warm). That’s it!

What are the advantages of cold laser therapy?

The advantages of using cold laser over other forms of treatment are that it is noninvasive; it is not prescription; no over the counter medication is used, and cold laser has no side effects.

Is it safe?

Absolutely! Cold laser has been in use for many years all over the world. We’ve had hundreds of patients benefit from care over the years-some of which were facing the exact same concerns as you. The laser we use is nothing like those that are used for cutting in surgery. It’s made for human therapeutic benefit.

What are the benefits of cold laser therapy?

Many of our patients have noticed benefits from laser therapy, such as

  • A reduction in inflammation
  • Increased blood flow to the affected areas
  • A reduction in pain
  • An acceleration in the healing process

Will cold laser therapy hurt?

No. The laser is a low-level laser that produces NO HEAT, hence the name “cold” laser therapy. You won’t feel any heat or warmth from the device.

How long does a cold laser treatment take?

Your length of treatment and the total number of treatments will have to be evaluated by Dr. Shippy. You can rest easy knowing that we’ll always provide you with the exact care that your body needs-no more, no less. With us, you’re in good hands!

Can I have laser therapy as a stand-alone service?

Yes. Most people want to have chiropractic alongside their laser therapy. You’ll get Dr. Shippy’s best recommendations after your consultation and can choose how you’d like to proceed.

What can I expect during a laser therapy session?

You’ll go to the laser therapy bay and wear a pair of safety goggles. The laser is applied for up to 12 minutes, depending on your needs. If you’re having laser therapy alongside another service, you can do laser before or after, depending on what is most efficient for your visit.

Does insurance cover laser therapy?

Generally, no. It is a cash service at Shippy Chiropractic.
