Cold Light Laser

A laser is simply a focused beam of light that emits photon energy. Low level lasers are different than the more publicized heat lasers that are used in many surgical procedures to cut, and cauterize tissue. Low level lasers do not have a thermal effect and are used to stimulate, rather than destroy tissue. These types of lasers have been in use for over 25 years and there has yet to be one recorded side effect.

The Erchonia laser made history by becoming the first low-level laser in the world to gain FDA clearance for chronic neck and shoulder pain. This was proven through two double-blind studies to prove the efficacy of the laser on chronic pain.

You may be asking yourself, so how does this laser really work?

Within the injured musculoskeletal tissue, low-level laser light initiates increased microcirculation and enhanced tissue regeneration. The overall effects are decreased pain and inflammation, and increased tissue growth and range of motion.
