Do you have intense, painful headaches?
Are your headaches frequent or long-lasting?
Do your migraines make you sensitive to light and sounds?
We understand, and laser therapy can help you
Here at Cruz Life Center, we have had great success treating headaches and migraines through laser therapy and chiropractic. Laser therapy is our main treatment because it reduces inflammation and heals damaged nerves and cells, which cause your pain. Many times, an individual who suffers from migraines will have areas in the neck that are out of alignment. Gentle adjustments with our instruments can painlessly get the neck into alignment, relieving pressure on the pinched nerves.

Laser Therapy Heals Headache Pain
When my headaches act up, I head to Cruz Life Center to get both laser treatments and an upper cervical adjustment on my C1. For me, the combination has been miraculous. The gentle, precise chiropractic adjustment aligns my upper neck and the laser treatment draws the inflammation away from the area. During the laser treatment I feel deep relaxation, my headaches go away, and I unexpectedly discovered that this combination also significantly reduced my anxiety. I feel so much better both physically and mentally. So grateful I found these knowledgeable, compassionate practitioners! – S.J.
I came in with a headache and decided to treat it with laser therapy. By the time I left my headache was gone. If you struggle with frequent headaches, come try laser therapy. – L.H.
I’ve suffered with migraines and tension headaches for over ten years. I’ve been to numerous doctors, two ear, nose, and throat specialists, and a neurologist. I’ve tried numerous medications. I would get temporary relief with the medications, but the headaches would always return, sometimes worse. I was having up to 6 migraines a month and a tension headache almost daily. This was interfering with my work and my overall happiness. After doing some research, I decided to give Cruz Life Center a try. I noticed a change almost immediately. My number of headaches has been reduced to only one migraine in my first month of treatment. I immediately noticed that after stressful days at work: no headaches!! I would highly recommend that anyone suffering with headaches, give Cruz Life Center a try. – A. T.

How Laser Therapy Works
Laser therapy uses red and infrared light to penetrate deep into the tissues and stimulate a healing response at the cellular level. It has been clinically proven that specific frequencies of light reduces inflammation (swelling) which is usually the cause of most discomforts. These are low level or cold lasers so there is no cutting or burning, these are healing lasers. The best part is that the light actually stimulates cellular HEALING of the tissues, and not just temporary relief.
Often people can tell a difference after the first treatment, most will feel a noticeable improvement within 3 treatments, more may be needed for complete resolution depending on severity.
