Cold Laser Therapy

logo.jpg


Cold laser is an amazing new technology used in health care today. Cold laser is referred to as a low level laser therapy that is much different from the traditional lasers that cut or burn. Cold lasers are painless and have NO thermal effect on the body. It is used to stimulate tissue healing rather than destroy tissue. These lasers have been used for over 25 years and there have been no recorded side effects.

How does it work?

The Erchonia cold laser emits a visible coherent light this is applied to the affected area. Bundles of light energy pass through the skin to photo receptors which exist on each cell within the body. These receptors are stimulated to trigger the cell to speed up several metabolic processes including increased circulation, increased cell regeneration, scar tissue reduction and increased oxygen levels to the area. The overall effects of the cold laser are increased range of motion, decreased pain and inflammation, and enhanced tissue regeneration.

When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.

Where is this being used?

The Erchonia cold laser device has gained recent FDA approval for the non-surgical treatment of neck and shoulder complaints and is being used widely in the NFL and by the USPS tour de France team chiropractor. The beneficial effects of the Erchonia laser are currently being researched by leading plastic surgeons for use in liposuction proceedures.
