laser on back

How It Works

Laser therapy affects your body at a cellular level. It stimulates the power plant of your cell-the mitochondria-to stimulate ATP production, which is your energy currency that helps to feed the cells and the tissues so that they can heal more rapidly.


Here are some of the major benefits of LLLT.

  • Improves and promotes healing and tissue repair
  • Reduces pain and spasm
  • Increases joint flexibility and range of motion
  • Reduces symptoms of osteoarthritis
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Improves recovery time
  • Increases circulation
  • Stimulate the immune system
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Improves vascular activity
  • Accelerates cell reproduction and growth
  • Stimulates nerve regeneration
  • Increases metabolic activity

Laser on neck

What to Expect

Just as we would with chiropractic patients, we will sit down and do a history. Once we’ve figured out what we’re treating and what the underlying issue that we’re trying to address, it’s as simple as walking into our therapy room.

Usually, Dr. Carroll will have an assistant go ahead and set the laser up. He will have discussed with that assistant the areas where they will use the laser and the specific settings to use.

The session takes only about 10 to 15 minutes.


How would you put a new patient at ease if they were nervous about getting laser therapy?

We would tell them that the only way that you could possibly have any harm by doing laser therapy is if you were to stare directly into the laser light. Otherwise, you’re not going to feel a thing with it while it’s on you.

When will I start to experience an improvement?

Many people notice an immediate improvement in their condition after their first treatment. However, every case is unique, of course, so whether you notice improvement right away depends on your condition and how long you’ve had it.

How many sessions will I need?

For severe or more chronic conditions, it takes the body longer to respond. Most conditions will require anywhere from 4-5 or 10-18 treatments. Dr. Carroll will be able to tell you how many sessions he thinks you need.

Is there an additional fee for the service or is it included in the visit fee or covered by insurance?

Unfortunately, it is not covered. Laser therapy is considered experimental physiotherapy at this point. That’s why it’s not covered by insurance. The fee is $35 a session. You also can buy laser therapy in packages of five or 10.

Should I wear any special type of clothing?

Just wear comfortable and light-colored clothing. The lighter the color of the clothing, the better. That’s because, with darker-colored clothing, we won’t get as many photons through the clothing.

Does it hurt to get laser therapy?

No, not at all. Most people feel a soothing warm sensation when receiving the therapy. It’s typically a comfortable and relaxing experience.
