Cold Laser Therapy & Its Benefits

Cold Laser Therapy & Its Benefits

Did you know that in the United States it is estimated
that 56 million individuals suffer from some form of chronic pain annually?

Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons employees are absent from work more than any other disease. Over the next few years it is predicted that this type of pain will only increase in incidence. The unfortunate fact about the 56 million plus individuals dealing with acute or chronic pain is that they turn to over-the-counter pain medicine for relief. The FDA recently issued strict warnings regarding the misuse and overdosing of these medications due to severe complications such as stomach ulcers, hearing disorders, and liver failure. Such side effects as these and many others have caused physicians to become increasingly concerned about the consequences associated with pain medication.

What are my other options?

There is currently a new treatment that has been proven safe and effective by the FDA. This treatment and solution is a Low Level Laser. These lasers are used to stimulate the healing process of deeper structures such as nerves, bones, tendons, and cartilage. It has been clinically proven that these lasers increase range of motion and decrease overall symptoms in patients suffering with acute and chronic pain. The FDA has cleared LOW LEVEL LASERS for the treatment of

  • Chronic Neck Pain
  • Post-Operative Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Heel Pain Related to Plantar Fasciitis
  • Skin conditions (acne, eczema, cellulite, etc.)
FDA-Approved Erchonia Laser treating skin conditions with ultraviolet

How does LASER work?

The Erchonia low level laser is non-invasive, painless, and speeds up the body’s natural recovery process by encouraging cell regeneration. Treatment with the laser also improves range of motion and decreases inflammation and pain, thus reducing the need for medication. In contrast to high-power, high-heat lasers that are used in various surgical procedures, Erchonia lasers produce a low-level, or cold output that has no thermal effect on the body’s tissues. Instead, the laser serves to stimulate biological function similar to photosynthesis in plants. Erchonia low level lasers have been proven effective for the treatment of acute and chronic pain, post-operative pain, body contouring, acne, and for the treatment of cellulite. It increases cell regeneration, cell communication, and decreases inflammation.

FDA-Approved Erchonia Laser treating chronic upper back pain and shoulder pain using cold laser. The cold laser therapy promotes faster healing because the laser stimulates fibroblast development in damaged tissue. Another positive is that the laser is known to reduce swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of the joints to give improved joint mobility. Along with bringing down inflammation, the low level laser stimulates lymph and blood circulation, which helps the affected tissue to have the best possible circulation. Research shows that the cells in your body are continually communicating with each other through coherent light, thus, one of the many reasons the Erchonia Laser has had such a positive effect on the body.
