We are proud to now offer a new adjunct therapy at our clinic. Simon Pullen (Chiropractor) is fully certified in KLASER. This novel drug free treatment has many uses and we are one of the few private clinics in Northern Ireland able to offer this. Low Level Laser has been around in Europe since 1970 however it is only recently that it has started to gather increased momentum
Low Level Laser therapy uses specific red and near ultra-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. These specific frequencies of light correspond to certain cellular processes in the body, the light lends more energy to these processes and allows the cells to speed up their energy production thus giving the diverse aforementioned benefits.
This very much depends on the nature of the injury/condition. The more acute and severe the condition will require an increased number of treatments. Your chiropractor will discuss this with you. Treatments with the laser take 10minutes, and just like your chiropractic treatment, you may need to return a few times to receive the full benefits.
Yes! there are thousands of published papers to corroborate these claims. If you would like to see some please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is little or no sensation while being treated with the laser, there may occasionally be a mild soothing warmth or tingling. Your chiropractor will adequately discuss your plan of management with you, but most of the time laser is a helpful addition to the care you are already receiving.
Our chiropractor Simon Pullen has undertaken extra training in the use of the Laser and all appointments are under his watchful eye.
Simon practices in the true, traditional manner of Chiropractic. He also uses additional techniques as appropriate that integrate well with Chiropractic, such as Activator and Dry-needling (acupuncture). He is also trained in the use of Laser therapy for musculo-skeletal conditions, which can be very beneficial when used in conjunction with Chiropractic.
Of particular importance to Simon is how we ‘do’ things in our everyday life:Ergonomics. How we sit, work, sleep etc. Simple analysis and advice can lead to dramatic changes in a person’s well being, and can minimise and prevent many types of bodily discomforts.
Simon has a straightforward, caring approach to caring for his patients and his favourite quotation of all time comes from Thomas A Edison:
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. ~ ”
