Erchonia laser therapy is a form of low level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser that is painless, sterile, non-invasive, and drug-free. The Erchonia lasers are a class 2 laser with constant wavelength of 635nm, which is effective in treating pain while promoting healing. It also has pulsed frequencies (hertz) that can be programmed for specific conditions.
Many patients have stated that a treatment loosens tight muscles, improves the range of motion of the joint without pain, feels tingly/warm/cool during treatment and relaxes them overall even if the treatment only lasts a few to several minutes. It has decreased swelling and shortened recovery time from injuries. Some patients say they can feel the laser energy in their meridians or energy pathways in their body similar to the feeling they have when they receive an acupuncture treatment.
Our office has the PL-Touch model that allows us to have two mobile heads with four laser beams programmed for optimal healing. Erchonia has patented the cold laser therapy “line” so when we do a treatment on an area, you will see a red line on the skin (as opposed to dots).
What this means for you is that we can treat spot treat the affected area, the affected area’s nerve root (that originates from the spine), or treat a meridian/channel/energy pathway along the body with one or both heads. There are a number of programs that one can use for different conditions and it has been found effective with wound healing, acute or chronic pain, and much more.
