DEEP TISSUE LASER THERAPY - A GAME-CHANGER FOR TREATMENT OF PAIN AND INFLAMMATION
Lindstrom Chiropractic now offers LiteCure Deep Tissue Laser Therapy, a proven, non-invasive technique using laser energy to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions and post surgical pain.
Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes with patients usually seeing results in 3 to 5 treatments. (Dr. Tom will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.)
Laser treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
If you are dealing with chronic or acute pain and inflammation, contact Lindstrom Chiropractic to develop a laser treatment plan optimal for your condition.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as clothing or topical dressings interfere with delivering light to tissues beneath the skin. Patients will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered. Many patients receiving LightForce Therapy Laser treatments report enjoying the experience, especially when the massage ball treatment head is used to deliver what is often referred to as a â€œlaser massage.â€ Patients receiving treatments with higher-power lasers also frequently report a rapid decrease in pain. For someone suffering from chronic pain, this effect can be particularly pronounced.
HOW LONG DO TREATMENTS LAST?
With LightForce lasers, treatments are quick, usually 4-7 minutes, depending on the size, depth, and chronicity of the condition being treated. High-power lasers are able to deliver a lot of energy in a small amount of time, allowing therapeutic dosages to be achieved quickly.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Clinicians will develop specific plans of care based on the diagnosis and the tissues that are involved. Chronic conditions often require more therapy than acute.
