About Low Level Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a relatively new technology compared to many alternative therapies like acupuncture (which has been used since 8000-3500 B.C.), chiropractic (since 1895) and physical therapy.  Many alternative medicine practices are evolving to include laser therapy. Recent innovations in low-level lasers now make it possible for practitioners or consumers to own high quality cold laser equipment. The first cold laser was FDA cleared in 2001. Cold lasers are sometimes called Low Level Lasers (LLLT) or soft lasers.​

In general, cold lasers can be used in two distinct ways:

  1. Targeting acupuncture trigger points (similar to acupuncture but without the use of needles).

  2. Treatment of damaged tissue and bone with cold laser to reduce pain and stimulate healing.

Cold Laser therapy offers a non-intrusive option to acupuncture and surgery. It also provides a non-addicting treatment that eliminates the complications of long-term drug treatment programs.

Cold lasers are FDA cleared and widely used for treatment of: 

Acute and Chronic Pain

Ligament Sprains

Muscle Strain

Soft Tissue Injuries

Tendonitis

Arthritis

Fractures

Back Pain

Bursitis

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Fibromyalgia

Arthritis

Sinusitis

Allergies

Headache

Scar Tissue

Inflammation

Bell's Palsy

Constipation

Candida

Cold and Flu

Eczema/Rashes

TMJ

Parathesia (numbness)

Post-op (wound healing)

Lymphatic (with percussor)

Infection

Anxiety

Bed Wetting

Bronchitis

Burns

Ear Ache

Hormone Balance

Just to name a few.

Healing With Cold Lasers

Housed within the mitochondria, the cell energy manufacturer, are receptors capable of absorbing distinct parameters of light.  The cold laser produces an impulse of light at a specific wavelength (usually 600 to 980nm) that minimizes reflection and scattering but maximizes absorption of the energy (in photons) at a desired depth. During laser treatment the light will penetrate the skin and is then absorbed by a receptor within the mitochondria. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation, improves cell metabolism and enhanced blood and oxygen flow. Erchonia Low Level Laser is the only company with a product that operates between those wavelengths.

 

Over 4000 studies have been conducted in recent years to validate the effectiveness of cold laser therapy. Cold lasers treatment systems have been cleared by the FDA.

General Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects

Increased Cell Growth: Laser photons accelerate cellular reproduction and growth.

Increased Metabolic Activity: Photons initiate a higher output of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).

Faster Wound Healing: Cold laser photons stimulate fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.

Anti-Inflammatory Action: Laser photons reduce swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints resulting in enhanced joint mobility.

Increased Vascular Activity: Laser photons induce temporary vasodilation that increases blood flow to affected areas.

Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: Laser photons reduce the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns, or post surgery.

Stimulated Nerve Function: Laser photon exposure speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life.

Pain Reduction: Almost all systems have a mode of operation specifically designed to reduce pain.
