He can’t say that he invented the laser light, but Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Carella does take credit for the development of laser spine care. During each laser-therapy treatment, he stimulates acupuncture points across the body with a laser light and manipulates the spinal nerve root with an LED light. The therapeutic glow from these devices helps soothe chronic pains, such as sciatica, spinal stenosis, nerve-root irritation, backaches, neck aches, and post-handshake shudders. Though not all of Dr. Carella’s treatment techniques—which include acupuncture, chiropractic care, and hypnosis—are his own inventions, he performs each with the same level of care that has earned him the nickname “The Gentle Chiropractor.”

Dr. Carella has mastered his technique throughout more than 40 years in business, a lengthy and accomplished career that even Dr. Carella himself didn't predict. He was diagnosed with a structural lumbar dysfunction, which led him to research its treatment methods. That's when he discovered the field of chiropractic care. He wrote a textbook on hypnosis in 1975 and contributed to a book that offered treatment methods for those suffering from back pain. He also belongs to several medically based associations and academies, and his skills have brought him such high-profile clients as football Hall of Famer Bobby Bell, Grammy Award–winner Roberta Flack, and professional wrestler Harley Race.
