Over the past several weeks, I have described a few different problems that can occur with your shoulder. Most of these problems are related to the soft tissues in the area and therefore aren’t easy to treat with standard chiropractic adjustments – which primarily deal with the joints and the nerves. Fortunately, there is another way! Low Level Laser Therapy (now there’s a mouthful for you!) is cutting-edge technology which is revolutionizing the treatment of soft-tissue injuries. Laser therapy works by delivering a precise wavelength of light into the affected tissue. These photons of light have the ability to be absorbed into the individual cells and provide a direct source of raw energy for cell metabolism. This means that the cells speed up their normal production – and in the case of injured tissue – speed up the healing process. Areas of your body like elbows, knees and shoulders have notoriously poor blood supply to begin with, and this is why healing often takes so long. Laser therapy can override that weakness by the energy boost it gives. I have treated hundreds of patients with amazing results.
Here is just one example: “I first came to this clinic with a frozen shoulder due to a 10-year-old rotator cuff tear. With three treatments I was free of pain and able to lift my arm over my head without any pain.” ~Judy Kowalchuk, Daysland
