Low-Level Laser Therapy
We are proud to say our office is a low-level Laser provider for the Erchonia laser that has been proven through a double-blind clinical trial to decrease pain by 66%.
How It Works
The effects of Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT®) are photochemical (cold), not thermal. Hot lasers in the medical world are used place for surgical precision while cold lasers are used for healing precision. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser, is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free modality that is used for a variety of conditions such as, acute and chronic pain, body-contouring, acne and appearance of cellulite. During treatment of the tissue with the 635nm low level laser, an interaction between cells and photons takes place— a photochemical reaction. Photons from the laser affect the tissue at the cellular level. During a laser treatment, the light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by this receptor within the mitochondria. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation and enhanced blood and oxygen flow. The increased blood flow reduces inflammation that can cause pain. Stop the pain without harmful side effects.
At Prime Life Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Plano chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Garland Grant Fulcher can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Plano community, we provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at (972) 424-2225 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
