Laser Therapy at Bemis Family Chiropractic

Woman doing laser therapyIn addition to chiropractic adjustments, Bemis Family Chiropractic is thrilled to offer laser therapy as an additional benefit. MLS Laser Therapy is used to minimize pain and inflammation. It uses concentrated light energy to help the body heal.

Here’s How it Works:

  • MLS Laser Therapy activates the lymphatic drainage system allowing patients to experience a reduction in swelling that is caused by bruising or inflammation.
  • MLS Laser blocks pain because it’s beneficial to nerve cells.
  • The light penetrates deeply into soft tissues, which allows any damaged cells to repair. In addition, the laser light supports the formation of new capillaries and helps reduce scar tissue, which makes it a great treatment for surgical patients.
  • MLS laser targets the same trigger points that acupuncturists use. It is another form of holistic health care.
