Low level laser & LED Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. The light may be provided by a low power laser or an LED (light emitting diode). Laser emits energy in a for of photons; these particles of energy are absorbed by cells and tissue resulting in conversion of light into biochemical energy. Multiple physiological responses are thereby initiated and normal cell function is restored. This process is curative and eliminates symptoms (i.e. pain, edema, etc).
What is its history?
The effect of red light on cellular function have been known since 1880, however the clinical benefits were only discovered by accident during laser safety test in 1967. The first lasers suitable for treating pain became available commercially in the late 1970’s and ever since then, laser therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors. Now, after FDA approval in 2002, laser therapy is quickly gaining popularity in the USA.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your chiropractic care.
The entire staff is awesome! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Hoang and Dr. Trainor are both excellent. They are thorough and make sure that you understand your treatments and the reasons for them.
I travel from Covington to Metairie for my visits, that should speak for itself! But this practice along with all of its employees are very caring, personable and professional. Dr. Kim Trainor is amazing, understanding and easy to get along with.
Love everyone at this place! Everyone is down to earth, understanding, and non-stop keeping up with everyone. As a business owner I have the utmost respect for the staff and knowledge.
The staff is always courteous and very friendly. They take their time to learn their patients first names for a more personal experience. I have never felt more at ease while going for an adjustment. I recommend them to all my family and friends.
In just a weeks time they have made exceptional progress with my loss of motion in my neck and shoulder. They are very effecient and thourally understand my issues. The team of chiropractors have quickly created an action plan for my recovery. I can’t recommend them enough, the entire team is pleasant and I’m always feeling better after every treatment. Thank you!
My daughter sees Dr Hoang and Dr Trainor. Along with their staff, they provide superior care. They are clearly knowledgeable and experienced. I would not hesitate referring my family, my friends or my own patients to them.
Love Hoang Chiropractor Care. Both Dr. Hoang and Dr.Trainor are excellent doctors. They are extremely knowledgeable, great listeners, and focused on getting you the right treatment for your needs. The staff is amazing and very nice. Very accommodating with appointment times.
The staff here are great! They are very friendly. When I started my therapy here my pain was over 10. After a few months with them I felt much better and am almost pain free. They were always so welcoming and made me feel like family. Highly recommend.
I love Dr. Trainor and all of her staff. They have the most up to date technology, from laser therapy, the matrix machine, spinal decompression beds, ultrasound waves, etc. to make sure you get the best care and relief possible. I had been seeing a chiropractor with an older approach for years and it did provide relief for a while but the pain always came back since we weren’t fixing the underlying problem (6 ruptured discs).
