Livonia Chiropractor Uses Cold Laser Therapy for Pain Relief Treatment
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.

Dr. Travis Dockery
Dr. Dockery grew up in Romulus where he enjoyed playing soccer and being active. He graduated from Romulus High School with academic honors in addition to several sports awards. He attended Eastern Michigan University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude honors with his Bachelor’s degree in Biology.
He knew he wanted to help people in the health field, but was unsure which field of study best suited him. After experiencing intense headaches that he could not find relief from, he went to a local chiropractor. The non-invasive, non-surgical hands-on healing approach that the doctor offered was exactly what he had been searching for. Thus began his drive for chiropractic.
Dr. Dockery graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Sciences and a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic. While at Logan he participated in their club soccer team and continued his passion for being healthy and staying active.
After finishing his course work and school requirements early, Dr. Dockery followed an opportunity to Charlotte, North Carolina in order to pursue an internship. He was offered a position prior to graduation and gladly accepted. While he loved the area and the weather was beautiful, he realized that he missed his family and friends in Michigan. He has moved back to the Romulus area to join True Health Chiropractic. Dr. Dockery is up to date on the latest changes in chiropractic and healthcare and is eager to share his knowledge with his hometown.
