Wheeler Chiropractic Clinics, LLC, located in Pea Ridge, between Pace and Milton, offers comprehensive, non-surgical chiropractic care, physical therapy and massage therapy to successfully treat pain.
Now, Dr. Wheeler offers the 15-watt Class IV K-Laser 1200 in the Pensacola area, used for treating discomfort stemming from sports injuries, personal injuries, auto accidents, lower back pain, arm or leg pain, TMJ, carpal tunnel, skin disorders, bulged or herniated discs, headaches and neck pain.
The K-Laser stimulates blood flow that brings nutrients to and takes waste from the targeted cells, as well as dramatically increasing ATP production by means of activating the body’s natural healing system using a precisely determined healing temperature and subdermal light stimulation.
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is a coenzyme that transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism. It is one of the end products of photophosphorylation, cellular respiration and fermentation, and is used by enzymes and structural proteins in many cellular processes, including biosynthetic reactions, motility and cell division.
Scientific studies have shown that K-Laser therapy can help with tendinopathies, carpal tunnel syndrome, myofascial trigger pints, tennis elbow, ligament sprains, muscle strains, repetitive stress injuries, plantar fasciitis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, shoulder, back and knee pain, shingles, post-traumatic injury, trigeminal neuralgia, fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, venous ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, burns, deep edema and congestion.
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
The biological effect stimulated by laser therapy is related to the number of photons that reach the affected area, not just the number of photons incident on the surface. The number of sessions will depend on the exact diagnosis, age and overall health status of the patient and other factors. In general, acute conditions can be treated more frequently and typically in four to six visits.
Wheeler is accepting patients now to benefit from both his 17 years of clinical experience and the cutting-edge technology of the K-Laser.
