Laser Therapy Pittsburgh, PA
Patients in the Cranberry/Greater Pittsburgh region have turned to Turack Chiropractic’s laser therapy in Wexford, PA for drug-free pain relief, improved mobility, and a greater range of motion.
What Is Laser Therapy?
The use of red and infrared light to relieve pain, accelerate the healing process, and minimize inflammation is known as laser therapy. This soft tissue treatment leverages the photochemistry of light to stimulate physiologic changes in cells. This non-invasive method of treatment allows us to treat our patients in a manner that brings no pain or discomfort.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
Unlike other physical therapy options, laser therapy treats the underlying condition rather than merely masking the pain or treating the symptom. By getting to the root cause of the discomfort, laser therapy does much more than just temporarily relieve pain. Treatments have a cumulative effect over time for long lasting benefits. Some patients at our Wexford chiropractic clinic notice an immediate improvement of symptoms and greater range of motion after one single treatment. Others with chronic pain or conditions may require several treatments for optimal benefits.
Our cold laser therapy may be beneficial to those with the following:
- Frozen shoulder
- Post-Operative Wounds

- Wound Healing
- Chronic or Acute Pain

How Laser Therapy Works
We’ll try our best to explain this in layman’s terms rather than sounding like Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory…
When the light source comes into contact with your skin, photons pierce several centimeters and are absorbed by receptors in cells known as chromophores. These chromophores are located in the mitochondria – the part of a cell responsible for generating cellular energy called ATP that aids tissue healing.
Once these chromophores are stimulated by light, blood flow increases to the affected area and new blood vessels also form. Immune cells and fibroblasts are transported to and from the injured area to rid the body of damaged cells and increase the production of ATP. This allows for the production of new healthy cells and accelerates the repair phase of healing.
