The staff at Austin Family Chiropractic is pleased to announce the 1-year anniversary of the purchase of their newest super-pulsed Cold Laser Therapy machine. They are excited to offer this type of state-of-the-art therapy to the residents of Virden, Girard and the surrounding communities.

The staff at Austin Family Chiropractic in Virden, IL believes that Cold Laser Therapy can produce amazing results. They should know, since their clinic has been serving North Macoupin County with Cold Laser Therapy services since July of 2005 when the clinic purchased it’s first three Cold Laser Therapy machines. This month they are offering ONE FREE LASER THERAPY SESSION to anyone with an indicated condition.

Dr. Austin found out about this super-pulsed cold laser device at a seminar at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO one year ago this month. It turns out that this machine is the very same laser device that the Chicago Blackhawks team trainers use. It’s actually the same laser that helped Jonathan Toews lead the Blackhawks to their first Stanley Cup championship in 49 years (in 2010) and earn himself the Conn Smythe trophy as the playoff MVP on June 9, 2010.

You see, Toews was struggling with a shoulder injury before the 2010 playoffs began. Thanks to this highly portable Cold Laser Therapy device which was always able to make road trips with the team, Toews not only played in all 22 playoff games, but excelled as well with 7 goals and 22 assists for a total of 29 points! Dr. Austin then realized that he needed to add this cold laser to his clinic’s arsenal of Cold Laser Therapy machines. Austin Family Chiropractic’s new super-pulsed cold laser device arrived during the last week of June 2010.

How does Laser Therapy work? Cold Laser Therapy increases circulation within minutes. It increases range of motion and quickly decreases inflammation too. It inhibits bad prostaglandins, which cause inflammation. It increases serotonin, which decreases pain. In addition, it increases endorphins which make us feel good. And the thing that Dr. Todd Austin gets most excited about is the fact that Cold Laser Therapy actually causes cellular regeneration, which speeds up the healing process.

What are the indicated conditions or applications for Cold Laser Therapy? Laser therapy has a wide spectrum of indicated conditions, to include such things as: Arthritis, Intervertebral Disc Disease (to include a herniated disc in the back or neck), Sprains or Strains, Tendonitis, Bursitis, wound healing, burns, bruises, both pre and post operative, post-fracture repair and post-orthopedic surgery rehabilitation. They have seen excellent response to Cold Laser Therapy in tendonitis (shoulders, elbows), bursitis (shoulders, hips), herniated disc disease in necks and backs, and lots of foot, ankle and knee complaints already in the 1 year that they’ve had their new super-pulsed cold laser machine.

Cold Laser therapy has shown significant benefit in both acute and chronic conditions, so if you hurt for any reason, we highly recommend you try Cold Laser Therapy.

More importantly, Cold Laser Therapy provides relief and the potential to reduce the use of anti-inflammatory pain medications. This is extremely important for people who have kidney or liver problems and offers an alternative therapy that may allow you to live a longer and more pain free life.

The staff at Austin Family Chiropractic knows that Cold Laser Therapy can produce amazing results. Therefore, this month they are offering ONE FREE LASER THERAPY SESSION to anyone with an indicated condition that Dr. Austin believes it could benefit. If you like the results of the Cold Laser Therapy and feel you can benefit from this therapy, then you can purchase a package of six sessions and they will give you an extra session for free. To qualify, this purchase must be made within three business days of your initial free therapy session.

To facilitate this promotion, they have reserved slots in their appointment schedule just for you. Please call Dr. Todd or Eugena today at (217) 965-3100 to schedule your FREE LASER THERAPY SESSION. Your body will thank you!

Austin Family Chiropractic appreciates your continued business. We wish you a happy, healthy and fun summer.
