Wondering if laser therapy is for you? Dr. Craig Mattox is happy to answer your questions and help you figure out if it's right for any condition you may have. His patients enjoy this non-invasive treatment as it has helped them recover from a wide variety of acute and chronic injuries.

Our chiropractor may decide to include cold laser therapy as part of your comprehensive and individualized plan of care. You'll remain fully clothed as the targeted treatment area (shoulder, knee, etc.) is exposed in order to receive the beneficial effects of the healing light. The treatment itself is painless; more than likely, you won't feel a thing other than relief! For optimal healing, we generally suggest people undergo multiple sessions while also receiving other chiropractic services such as spinal adjustments and corrective exercises.
