Infrared light, lasers, and cellular regeneration? Sounds like the stuff of science fiction. Although it is fitting for Star Wars Day (May the Fourth), these advancements actually are at today’s medical technological forefront in chiropractic care and can be found right here in the western Chicago suburbs at Quality Care Chiropractic.
Strongly committed to providing the finest in chiropractic health care with advanced technologies and progressive procedures, Quality Care Chiropractic is the first office in the Aurora metropolitan area to offer this kind of chiropractic laser therapy.
“More and more, our patients are looking for effective treatment options that are less invasive, have no side effects, and provide rapid results that speed the healing process. Laser therapy gives us the opportunity to meet the needs of our patients and offer the highest levels of care possible,” says Dr. Rick Gross, co-owner of Quality Care Chiropractic.
Laser therapy enables Dr. Gross to provide rapid relief for patients suffering from both chronic and acute ailments, such as back and joint pain, tendonitis, arthritis, disc disease, sprains and strains, and even swollen areas and surface injuries, without using painful injections or potentially habit-forming drugs.
“When a physical condition or injury affects mobility or quality of life, there is one goal: a rapid return to everyday activities. We now have the most advanced equipment on the market to deliver these results,” states Dr. Gross.
Known as Multiwave Locked System® (MLS®), it is “the next generation of laser therapy” and uses specific wavelengths of light to help eliminate pain and reduce inflammation in the body in a safe, painless, and noninvasive way. Using dual wavelengths of infrared light, the laser penetrates deep into the tissue to stimulate regeneration at the cellular level.
In addition to not requiring the use of drugs or surgery and having no known side effects, laser therapy is quick and convenient and has been shown to be equal to, or more effective, than other forms of therapy, according to studies at top academic institutions like Harvard University.
First and foremost, MLS Laser Therapy is about healing. The treatment doesn’t aim to mask or cover up a condition but rather treats the root of the pain and inflammation, giving many patients long-term results.
Although treatment plans are patient-specific, a typical session lasts 10–15 minutes and occurs 2–3 times a week for approximately 6–12 visits. Many feel improvements after only 1–3 treatments, but every injury and individual responds differently.
Yes, like all treatments, laser therapy can be even more effective when combined with other methods, including physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, massage, soft tissue mobilization, and electrotherapy.
Yes, it is, at Quality Care Chiropractic. Dr. Rick Gross states, “We pride ourselves on staying at the leading edge of technology and educating our patients on the various levels of care available. Laser therapy is the future of the chiropractic industry, and we feel our patients deserve to have that option when choosing the best care for themselves.”
Whether you continue with traditional treatments or want to try this amazing new laser technology, may the force of healing be with you!
