Cold Laser Therapy (aka Low Level Laser Therapy)
Inflammation can be reduced within minutes with low-level cold laser therapy. In our clinic, we utilize Erchonia’s patented latest laser system, the FX-635 to stimulate cellular healing. By applying the cold laser to the brain, the metabolic activity increases through the entire brain! This increase in cell activation initiates a chain of reactions, from the cell membrane to the cytoplasm, to the nucleus and DNS. This is called cellular amplification, whose demonstration earned the Nobel Prize in 1994.
Unlike hot lasers that use heat to cut or burn tissue, low level cold lasers boost biochemical reactions in the targeted tissue. Visible light is directed to a specific area, the light energy passes through the skin, and enters cell membranes by special light receivers. This increases the cell’s energy which results in changed cell membrane permeability. Several biological processes are then affected, such as ATP stimulation, that then initiates an increase in cell regeneration and protection, and decreases cell death.
The laser increases regeneration and cellular communication between neurons in the brain! We use it on different settings to either stimulate and activate the parasympathetic nervous system, calm the sympathetic nervous system, or both during your sessions! It depends on what each individual needs after we test them.
- Relieves acute and chronic pain
- Stimulates the immune system
- Increases communication between neurons
- Increases blood supply
- Stimulates nerve function
- Increases the “gobbling up” of proteins that build up in the brain
- Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
- Promotes faster wound healing
- Reduces inflammation
In addition, cold lasers show potential for brain health. The National Institutes of Health is currently conducting research on the use of low-level light for conditions involving neurology, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, degenerative brain disease, spinal cord injury, and peripheral nerve regeneration.
Cold Laser Therapy has been featured on TV shows like Dr. Oz, Nightline, Good Morning American, Rachel Ray and The Doctors. Athletes from professional teams like NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL seek Erchonia Cold Laser Therapy, as well as countless celebrities use this laser.
