Laser Therapy in Hudson, Wisconsin

You might already be familiar with medical lasers for removing tumors or cauterizing wounds. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) for musculoskeletal treatment, however, is much different.

Also called cold lasers, our LLLT reduces pain by encouraging your body to heal itself from the inside out. Don’t worry: low-level lasers are not hot. In fact, they’re completely painless.

Dr. Carolyn Wanken and her team at Hope Chiropractic will listen to your issues and health history before developing a customized LLLT program to improve your personal health.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

What if your body had the ability to regenerate itself by laying out in the sun?

Well, that would be amazing, but you’d still have to face damage from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Think of LLLT as photosynthesis for your body: the healing power of light in a concentrated form.

Using a handheld device, Dr. Carolyn will apply light to the problem area. Light from the laser will pass through the layers of your skin to reach cells’ membranes and mitochondria where it will stimulate growth and regeneration.

This increased cellular energy produces many physiological and biological changes. In terms of the musculoskeletal system, LLLT increases circulation to enhance tissue healing.

For you, that means reduced pain, improved mobility, and optimized long-term wellness without harmful drugs or invasive (and expensive) surgeries.

What Are the Benefits of Choosing LLLT in Hudson, Wisconsin?
