Cold, Low-Level Laser Healing for Soft-Tissue Injuries

The Erchonia “Cold”, Low-Level Laser (LLL) has been called “The Therapy” of the 21st century when it comes to healing cervical sprains, disc herniations , frozen shoulders , sciatica and in fact many other soft tissue injuries. The low-level laser is safe and easy to use. It is both doctor and patient-friendly.

Research has demonstrated that a wavelength of 633-635 nanometers is the frequency of a healthy human cell and the most optimal for healing bruises, wounds, sprains and tears of the soft tissue in the human body. The Erchonia Cold laser is an instrument that, with a precise and high quality diode, delivers a line-generated beam at a constant wavelength of 635 nanometers and at a power level of less than one milliwatt.

High-power, “hot” lasers have shorter wavelengths, which have catabolic effects that can deliberately destroy tissues. This is not so with the low-power or “cold” laser, which has a longer wavelength, therefore produces anabolic effects that promote rapid reduction of pain, accelerate healing time and growth, and repair in soft tissue injuries.
Cold lasers have stimulative effects rather than destructive ones. It may be the perfect conjunctive tool for chiropractic treatments and myofascial release. Clinical applications of the cold laser have included acute and chronic pain reduction from many soft tissue injuries, reduced inflammation, enhanced tissue healing, and healthy cell regeneration. Studies have shown results with very rapid pain reduction and accelerated recovery times, far exceeding conventional methods.

Other Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects:

  • Rapid Cell Growth — Laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth. Essential for disc injuries.
  • Faster Wound Healing — Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue. This speeds up recovery with neck, back and ankle sprains.
  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation — Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action — Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility.
  • Increased Vascular Activity — Laser light induces temporary vasodilation, increasing blood flow to damaged areas.
  • Stimulated Nerve Function — Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in “dead” limbs or numb areas. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life. It is very helpful in whiplash and sciatic nerve injuries.
