Laser Therapy is one of the services that Sheppard Chiropractic Center offers.  But many people are more familiar with traditional chiropratic care.  They don’t know when they should ask about laser therapy.

So, if you are concerned about “getting it wrong,” there is no need to worry.  We will advise you about whether laser therapy is appropriate for your needs.  It is our privilege to help our patients on their journey to wellness.

If either of the below factors apply to you, it’s time to ask about laser therapy.

Have you had a sports injury?  Or, an injury that’s like one?

Laser therapy is an excellent treatment for sports injuries and other acute injuries.   You don’t necessarily have to have experienced a sprain, strain, bruise or contusion as a result of playing sports.  Plenty of people experience these injuries from household chores, at their workplace, or because of accidents.

Firstly, laser therapy reduces inflammation and pain from these kinds of injuries.  Secondly, it promotes production of collagen, cartilage and muscle cells.  It also stimluates your body to heal more quickly.

Do you experience a condition on this list?

  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • plantar fasciitis
  • ligament and tendon tears
  • rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • facet joint syndrome
  • bulging and herniated discs
  • rotator cuff injury
  • chondromalacia patella
  • bursitis and tendonitis
  • calcifications and bone spurs

All of these conditions typically respond very well to laser therapy.

How do I ask about laser therapy?

To conclude, if you’re struggling with one or more of the things on this list, it’s time to contact Sheppard Chiropractic Centre at (506) 635-8182 or (506) 847-7172.

If your health insurance covers chiropractic care, you are covered for laser therapy as well.  Laser therapy is a form of chiropractic care.

Finally, you don’t have to be a previous patient.  We are accepting new patients for laser therapy, just as we are accepting new patients for chiropractic care.  So, it would be our honor to assist you.
