Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a relatively new technology (about 30 years old) when compared to many alternative therapies like acupuncture (which has been used since 8000-3500 B.C.), chiropractic (since 1895) and physical therapy. Just like the abacus evolved into the computer, many alternative medicine practices are evolving to include light therapy. Recent innovations in low-level lasers now make it possible for the average physician or consumer to own cold laser equipment. Cold lasers are sometimes called Low Level Lasers (LLL) or soft lasers.

Laser therapy may be useful to you if you have any of the following:



  • chronic or acute pain
  • wound healing
  • arthritis
  • migraines
  • disc herniations
  • minor nerve damage
  • carpal tunnel syndrome



  • tendonitis
  • frozen shoulder
  • fractures
  • post-operative wounds
  • sprain-strains
  • scar tissue
  • autoimmune diseases

FAQ

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 procedures.

How does it work?

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.
