Low Level Laser Therapy at Weld Family Clinic

XLR8_Product_Shot_Straight_OnThe therapeutic benefits of light are well documented and light has been used for centuries as a natural treatment for a multitude of health conditions.  People in northern latitudes often suffer from problems such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) from shortened days during the winter months.  Reduced sun exposure in the winter months also leads to vitamin D deficiency, which can lead to decreased immune function and increase your chances of illness.
Recent research now suggests that utilizing a specific wavelength of light (635nm) in a red laser can speed healing from injuries, reduce the pain of chronic conditions and may even help with reducing the appearance of scars and conditions such as acne!
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is delivered via a handheld device and is completely painless.  It can be used on nearly every part of the body to reduce pain and speed healing.
Regular price for this therapy will be $35-45 per session
Now through 12/31/15, we are offering this exceptional service for $15 per session, or if you prepay for 10 sessions, you’ll get two free.

Chiropractic Care and Overall Well Being

There are very few things in life that can ruin your plans, throw you off your game, or slow you down like neck and back pain. Pain in the spine or neck can cause problems throughout your entire body. You might experience leg cramps, numbness and tingling, arm stiffness, muscle and joint weakness, or even headaches. Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to eliminate these problems and give you a sense of overall well being.

Neck and Back Pain

Whether it is the result of an injury, such as a muscle strain or pull, or a chronic physical condition, living with neck and back pain can make surviving the day-to-day aspects of life very difficult. Neck and back pain can rob you of time spend doing what you love. When the pain gets to be too much to bear and it is starting to push you closer to the edge of your tolerance, you need help to get things under control. A chiropractor can help to get things back in line, allowing you to enjoy the simple things in life once again.

How can Chiropractic Care Help?

Having a good chiropractor can make all the difference in the world by addressing the causes of your pain, not just the symptoms. Your initial visits will work on relieving your short-term immediate pain. In the long run, a chiropractor can then address the underlying issues for the chronic pain, eliminating the discomfort for good, enabling you to achieve overall health. Imagine a pain-free life without having to plan your activities around the worry of aggravating your body.

At Weld Family Clinic of Chiropractic, we want to help you get there. Our team of experts have years of training and experience in all areas of chiropractic care and services. Our satisfied clients have found relief and given us a reputation we stand behind each and every day.

Missing the Forest

When someone gets so focused on specific details, they can often lose sight of the general idea – one may say they’re missing the forest for the trees.

A patient of mine, whom I have not seen for 6+ years, came in complaining of right leg and foot pain, lower back pain and neck/shoulder/right arm pain.  In reviewing the past 6 years with him, he informed me that a podiatrist had taken full leg length x-rays and determined he had a 13mm short right leg and subsequently fitted him for orthotics with a 13mm lift under the right heel.

Problem solved, right?

Not so much.

  • Weight-bearing (standing) x-rays revealed a 5mm functional leg length inequality – ON THE LEFT  (this means the 13mm lift on the right was creating an 18mm functional inequality on the left)
  • X-rays also revealed a leftward curvature throughout the lumbar and thoracic spine which would be aggravated by the right lift
  • Patient states he has felt worse over the past 4 years since having the orthotics/lift in his shoes
  • Patient is concerned he may have to live with this pain the rest of his life (he’s only 36), causing significant distress

 

As a chiropractor, I look at the forest.  Yes, the trees are there.  Yes, they’re important.  The most important thing, however, is how the trees interact – how the physical matter that makes up our bodies interacts with the environment – internal and external – both in matter and in energy!

Did I give this patient a drug? Nope

Did I give this patient vitamins? Nope

What did I give him?

 

HOPE!!!
