I want to update everyone about our new Aspen Laser and what led to this decision. As you know, I’ve been practicing chiropractic for 32 years now, and on animals (dogs, cats, and horses) for more than 3 years. Doctors in my profession commonly suffer shoulder injuries, which is most often on the left, and with my previous separated shoulder and torn rotator cuff, I was having a lot of trouble/pain both working at the office and completing my ranch chores. I had a diagnostic ultrasound performed and the results were the worst the doctor had ever seen. His comment was, “Do you own a laser?”. I replied, “I do not” then he stated, “You will.”

This doctor treated my shoulder with his 810 nm wavelength laser. The laser treatment helped my shoulder pain to the extent that I decided to purchase an Aspen Laser with dual wavelengths of 810 nm and 980 nm. The extra wavelengths make it, what I believe, to be the best cold laser on the market.

Since utilizing the laser, I have been able to work and take care of the horses without pain. This laser has worked so well that I am even able to sleep on my left side again.

Please call the office for a list of benefits and information on how it works, such as a description of the 810 nm wavelength laser impacting the mitochondrial cytochrome c-oxidase or how the 980 nm wavelength optimizes the action on thermal and mechanical receptors for a rapid analgesic effect.

Laser therapy is a process, not an event. It may take a minimum of two sessions to fully experience the pain-relieving results. Schedule a complimentary first session today to see how the laser could help reduce your pain and inflammation.

P.S. Unfortunately, when catching someone who was losing their balance, I ended up rupturing my long bicep tendon. After consulting an orthopedic surgeon, he recommended 3 weeks off work and then to start rehab therapy. I resumed my laser treatments and I have yet to miss a day. I did begin rehabilitation therapy three days later. I truly believe that the laser treatments kept me working and healing.
