Garner Chiropractic & Wellness Center is proud to provide the highest level of pain relief with the
LightForce® XLi Deep Tissue Therapy Laser!
Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free option for individuals suffering from both acute and chronic pain. Treatments are fast, safe, and painless. Most patients see results in 3 to 5 treatment sessions, and patients can expect notable pain relief, with the effects lasting longer after each treatment.
Laser therapy is clinically proven to reduce pain and inflammation associated with many common musculoskeletal conditions, such as:
Neck Pain, Back Pain, Shoulder Pain, Sciatica, Arthritis, TMJ, Plantar Fasciitis, Sports Injuries, Soft Tissue Damage,
And Much More...
Laser therapy is endorsed by professional clinical organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO), American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), and the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP®) with over 3,000 research studies having been conducted in the field. The LightForce® XLi Deep Tissue Therapy Laser is FDA cleared and represents a great advance in medical technology. We are excited to provide another effective treatment option to our patients with this latest proven technology!

What is Laser Therapy?
It is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process within the cell called photobiomodulation (PBM). During PBM, the light interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism and a decrease in both pain and inflammation. This treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drug and surgery for pain relief.
How does Laser Therapy affect the body?
Rapid Cell Growth — Laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.
Faster Wound Healing — Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.
Increased Metabolic Activity — Higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation — Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or post-surgery.
Anti-Inflammatory Action — Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility.
Increased Vascular Activity — Laser light induces temporary vasodilation increasing blood flow to damaged areas.
Stimulated Nerve Function — Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in “dead” limbs or numb areas. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What does it feel like?
Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as clothing or topical dressings interfere with delivering light to tissues beneath the skin. Patients will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered. Many patients receiving LightForce Therapy Laser treatments report enjoying the experience, especially when the massage ball treatment head is used to deliver what is often referred toas a “laser massage.” Patients receiving treatments with higher-power lasers also frequently report a rapid decrease in pain. For someone suffering from chronic pain, this effect can be particularly pronounced.
How long do treatments last?
With LightForce lasers, treatments are quick, usually 4-7 minutes, depending on the size, depth, and chronicity of the condition being treated. High-power lasers deliver a lot of energy in a small amount of time, allowing therapeutic dosages to be achieved quickly.
How many treatments will I need?
Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Garner Chiropractic & Wellness Center will develop specific plans of care based on the diagnosis and the tissues that are involved. Chronic conditions often require more therapy than acute conditions.
