Dr. St. Laurent knows everyone is made differently and injuries can also be unique. As the leading chiropractor in Flower Mound, he understand the importance of combing therapies for the best results.

What is Soft Laser Therapy?

chatanooga_laser.jpgSoft laser therapy, also known as cold laser, uses the energy from light to promote the healing process at the cellular level. The therapy stimulates the mitochondria within the cell. The mitochondria affects the oxygen level of the cell which in turn aids in the stimulation of cellular renewal. Active cellular regeneration of healthy cells is needed for healing. According to 20+ years of research there are no adverse side affects with the use of Laser Therapy.

What are the benefits of SLT?

  • Increases circulation
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Stimulates nerve function
  • Develops collagen and muscle tissue
  • Helps generate new, healthy cells and tissue
  • Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
  • Dramatically reduces inflammation

What to Expect From a Laser Therapy Session?

Between 75-80% of patients being treated can notice an immediate improvement. This will depend primarily on the type of condition and the length of time the condition has been present.

During the treatment most people feel nothing. Others have reported a slight tingling or tapping sensation. As circulation is increased to the area they may feel a slight feeling of warmth. For the most part, the patient will feel nothing but the sensation of the touch of the probe as it comes in contact with the skin. Your treatment times will vary based upon the therapy your doctor has prescribed, normally no longer than 10 minutes per site.

Typically, the more chronic or severe the condition the longer it takes to respond. The majority of conditions treated will take anywhere from 4 -18 treatments. There are some conditions that will never completely resolve but can be helped and maintained with continued laser therapy. It is not unusual that 3-4 sessions are needed before a dramatic or marked improvement is perceived.

Testimonials

  • "I was having headaches everyday due to concussions. My moods were unpredictable and I always felt like I was in a fog. I would have migraines at least once a week. I just didn't feel right and no one was able to tell me what was wrong. The neurologists I went to see would simply say I needed time to rest my brain after a concussion. They didn't tell me what part of my brain was affected or offer any form of treatment. I was frustrated and looking for anything to make me feel better. I went to Dr. Ruben as a last hope. Little did I know he was exactly what I needed. Dr. Ruben took his time to find out exactly what was wrong with me, bringing me not only piece of mind but also a solution. Today, I am feeling more like myself again. I haven't had a migraine in over two months and I can't remember the last time I had a headache. It was the first time in a long time that I felt like a doctor really cared. Thank you Dr. Ruben for giving me my life back!"

  • "I have been to other chiropractors, but none have provided the care or knowledge I received from Dr. St. Laurent. He was able to find the root causes to improve my brain chemistry. His understanding of neurology and adjusting techniques had me back on my feet in a few days with less visits."
