Cold Laser Therapy
Here at Gray Clinic of Chiropractic, Ltd, we specialize in cold laser therapy. We are proud to serve patients in Mahomet, IL and the surrounding communities.
Cold laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Cold laser treatment can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.
Our friendly and educated chiropractor will hold the cold laser and place it directly on the injured area for a few minutes. At this time, the non-thermal photons of lights will be emitted from the laser and pass through the skin layers. The light has the ability to penetrate two to five centimeters below the skin at 90 mw and 830 nm.
When the light energy passes through your skin and reaches the injured area, the energy is absorbed and interacts with the light-sensitive elements in your cells. When cells absorb this light energy, it will assist with normalizing damaged or injured tissue, reducing pain, inflammation, edema, and overall healing time.
Our entire staff wants to assist you in getting to the root of your problem as quickly as possible. We understand the many benefits of cold laser therapy and will always go above and beyond for you. If you ever have any questions before, during, or after your therapy, we are always willing to answer them. We want you to feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process.

Here at Gray Clinic of Chiropractic, Ltd, we specialize in corrective exercises to assist you with any pain that you may be experiencing.
Corrective exercises can help make any pain that you are experiencing go away and stay away. These exercises will strengthen and correct the irregularities of your body which may be causing your pain. Most of these exercises are able to be performed in the comfort of your own home. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles or connective tissues that are out of place can also cause pain.
There are also other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches. These pains are caused by muscles and tissues that are not properly aligned. Overtime, this can cause injury. Feeling aligned will help your body achieve balance and true health.
It is important to do each rehabilitation exercise regularly. Strengthening weak areas and regaining lost strength will have you well on your way to feeling better.
These exercises typically combine stretching, aerobic conditioning, and strengthening exercises. These plans are all customized for your mobility level and pain level. Being able to implement and execute the exercises properly is very important to your entire healing process.
If you have any questions about corrective exercises, contact us today at (217) 586-3886.
Not to know is to guess and Dr. Gray will never guess at his patient’s health. At our Clinic, we take only the X-rays we need so that we can see what is actually going on with our patient’s spine. I know that everyone is concerned about radiation exposure but by using the latest X-ray equipment, our X-rays will typically give less radiation to your body then a bad sunburn does.
Here at Gray Clinic of Chiropractic, Ltd, we are proud to offer e-stim to our patients.
Stimulation can be a fantastic tool to assist you in feeling better. When applied to tissue, electric currents create thermal, physiological, and chemical responses. The currents also alter pain impulses.
We use interferential stimulation the most. Two channels of electrical stimulation create a third current that penetrates the affected tissues with little resistance. This stimulation will help control the pain and muscle contractions.
There are many benefits of electrical stimulation. Many of our patients say that it helps reduce edema as well as the swelling caused by fluid in the body’s tissues.
Our entire staff is dedicated to assisting you in your healing process. We focus on the root of the problem instead of covering it up with medication. By doing this, we are able to help solve the problem so that you are not in any pain anymore. Our number one goal is to assist you. We are always available to answer any questions that you have.
If you are experiencing pain, always let us know so that we can gently work around it and ensure that your sessions are beneficial and help in the healing process. We are always here for you.
