Give Your Healing a Powerful Boost With Laser Therapy

At Ritchie Chiropractic & Wellness, helping patients heal and get back to what they love in life will always be one of our foremost passions. That’s why we recommend an array of effective therapies, because we want you to get well. One of these modalities is the Class IV medical laser.

The multiwave locked system (MLS) laser therapy we use is the highest potency type available today. It’s the same kind used in orthopedic offices for issues like knee and hip pain, as it’s an effective way to manage pain and inflammation and help you heal faster.

How It Helps

The laser has two different beams that laser down into your tissue. Let’s say you have a knee problem. The first beam helps decrease pain by sparking anti-inflammatory processes in the tissue. The second beam helps speed up healing times or starts the healing process in an area that hasn’t gotten better.

Can Address Many Issues

This modern therapy can address various issues, including back or neck pain and joint discomfort. Dr. Ritchie has helped many patients, including dancers with Charlotte Ballet, as they have to stand en pointe, and their toes are always hurting as a result. Here are some other issues that can improve with laser therapy:

  • Extremity pain (e.g. in the shoulders, elbows and wrists)
  • Disc bulges and herniations
  • Sciatica
  • Neuropathy

You Won’t Get Burned

Another important benefit of this laser is that it doesn’t produce heat, unlike other Class IV ones, which do. With those, you can’t keep the unit over the body for very long, or else it starts to burn. With the MLS type, there’s no risk of getting burned. It also features a robotic head, which ensures we have a proper dose of the laser the entire way through a patient’s care program. Each session takes 10 minutes, and typically we will do six visits to start with, and we will see how you do.
