Natural medicine doctors such as Chiropractors will use medical technology that is 100% safe and all natural like cold laser therapy because of its numerous ongoing benefits. Erchonia cold lasers are non-invasive, gentle for all ages, zero negative side effects and have been shown to work consistently on hundreds of thousands of treatments done worldwide on a weekly basis.
Why do we use these lasers?
Our office utilizes the best quality of treatment and the most advanced medical equipment that is all natural, effective, patient affordable and FDA approved. For all these reasons is why we use Erchonia Low-Level Lasers, Class II (two) lasers. Our office has been using Erchonia lasers since 2005 with patient satisfaction. We use the brand Erchonia to treat our patients for two reasons. First and foremost it yields a high success rate and favorable outcomes for our patients and secondly Erchonia is the only laser company that has numerous clinical studies that show the efficacy of their lasers whether they are for pain and healing or cosmetic body contouring (links to the fat laser page).
Whats the research & why use this brand?
Cold Low-Level Lasers have been in use for three decades, with over 2,000 published research studies — without one recorded side effect. Erchonia made history by becoming the first laser company to receive FDA approval for chronic pain treatment at the turn of the century and have since then produced continuous studies supporting the medical use of the lasers. Another positive benefit to this company is that it has always been family owned and operated since its inception. Our office maintains a close working relationship with the entire staff & clinical studies division at Erchonia.
Because Low-Level Lasers do not have a thermal effect is why they are called “cold lasers” and are used to stimulate, rather than destroy tissue which produces zero negative side effects. These types of lasers have been in use for nearly 30 years with only positive outcomes in private practice or in all clinical studies, including FDA double-blind multiple site studies.
What do the lasers do?
Low Level Laser Therapy (cold lasers) is a universal body therapy method for treating muscle, tendon, ligament, connective tissue, bone, neurological dysfunction or damage, and skin tissue with one simple piece of equipment. Low-Level Laser Therapy has been found to offer superior healing and pain-relieving effects when compared to other electrotherapeutic modalities. The results seem equally untouchable for early stages of acute injuries, and for long time chronic problems which is why these lasers are well suited to treat various states of injuries.
The lasers can also be used at any age from newborns to adults and are widely used in Veterinarian offices for the impressive healing it provides to our furry friends. The Erchonia Low-Level Laser, aka cold laser, is a painless, high-tech, non-thermal healing laser light that is transmitted through the clothing or directly onto the skin to treat the painful, restricted joints muscles. The lasers are equally used for post-surgical healing, wound repair, skin issues, and some dermatologic concerns. The lasers are custom programmed for each patient treatment and have the capacity to treat thousands of various conditions with zero downtime, and no side effects.
Whats the science? (click here to scroll down to the quick explanation)
Low Level Laser Therapy has been proven to penetrate tissue and to be absorbed at a cellular level. Unlike high power lasers that use heat to cut or burn tissue, low energy cold lasers boost biochemical reactions in the targeted tissue. Erchonia lasers emit visible coherent (focused) light which are photons that are applied to the affected area. Photons are the measurement of light. Photons bundles of light energy pass through the dermal layers and are received within the cell membrane by specific energy photo acceptors (light receivers). The increase in intra-cellular energy results in altered cell membrane permeability and physiological changes occur through an enzyme cascade to affect several biological processes. A series of reactions occur resulting in enhanced tissue healing, pain control and stimulation of the vascular, immune and lymphatic systems.
These lasers work at the level of the cellular basis by increasing the energy that cells need to regenerate, heal and increase the ability of cells to communicate with each other. One of the key processes that are heightened is the production of ATP in the mitochondria of the cell. The mitochondria are the “Powerhouse” of the cells and make ATP which is needed for the life enhancement process of every cell.
Mitochondrial function is imperative to optimal health. There is a direct correlation between the quality and function of healthy mitochondria and chronic disease tied in with poor functioning mitochondria. Utilizing modalities that increase mitochondrial function & ATP production is an essential tool not only supporting but promoting vibrant health. When ATP is increased so is the cells ability to heal and recover from stress or injury. The light energy from the laser initiates a cascade of reactions as explained above from the cell membrane all the way to the cell’s DNA.
The energy transferred to the cell can increase its kinetic energy, and activate or deactivate enzymes or alter the physical or chemical properties of the main macromolecules. Research has shown that the cells of your body actually communicate with each other through coherent light, thus, the reason the Erchonia Laser has such a positive effect on the body.
Whats the quick explanation and goal with lasers?
In a nutshell, what ultimately happens is the lasers bypass the skin go into the cells and stimulate the mitochondria to produce better quality ATP and more of it. Several biological processes are then affected, such as ATP stimulation, that then initiates an increase in cell regeneration and protection, and decreases cell death. What the patient notices in their physical injuries and disorders include a faster recovery, reduction in swelling, an increase in tissue healing, reduction in pain, increased mobility, and maximum recovery. All this is done while the patient comfortable lies on the table and feels nothing while the lasers go to work!
Low Level Laser Therapy is safe, painless, and non-invasive; the results are often immediate and are long-lasting. Lasers are safe for newborns to adults, including animals and plant life! When the lasers are used in combination with chiropractic care the best results are achieved to uplift the nervous system and promote healing.
Please note that not everyone’s condition is the same and not all people respond with the same potential for healing.
