Life in Motion Chiropractic utilizes a cutting-edge treatment called Cold Laser Therapy. Laser therapy is a growingly popular, non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to penetrate damaged tissue in the body to allow the body to heal from the inside out. It is effective at treating both acute and chronic pain.

The therapy works by decreasing inflammation, releasing pain-relieving endorphins, and accelerating the repair of connective tissue like ligaments, tendons, muscles, etc. The laser works through a process called photobiomodulation. This process allows light rays that enter the body to interact with the mitochondria in the cells and cellular processes, accelerating the body’s natural healing processes.
