Erchonia cold laser therapy, also called low-level laser therapy, has obtained 18 total FDA clearances. The FDA has approved treatments that provide patients relief for a wide range of afflictions. It utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate the healing process. Cold laser treatment can be used on patients suffering from both acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.
Erchonia Cold lasers are flashlight-sized devices chiropractors can hold in their hands or place on an oscillating platform built exclusively for Myshka Chiropractic. They emit a laser light that travels beneath the skin. Cold laser therapy is used to target specific areas of the body to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue. Our chiropractor in Jonesboro, AR, specializes in cold laser therapy and use the brand Erchonia which has 18 total FDA clearances.
How Cold Laser Therapy Works
Our Erchonia handheld laser sits on an oscillating platform and uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to alter cellular functions and provide noticeable pain relief. Similar to photosynthesis in plants, LLLT has a photochemical effect that naturally reduces oxidative stress and increases the production of ATP.
This revolutionary dual-diode laser scans over the injured or painful area and creates wavelengths of low-level light (635nm) that emits from the laser and passes through the skin’s layers (the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin). When cells absorb this light energy, the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration. This results in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema, and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism.
Cold Laser Treatment
Unlike pain relief surgery, which frequently involves anesthesia, pain, and scarring, or drugs, which often have adverse side effects and can potentially become addictive, cold laser treatments with Myshka Chiropractic only take 10-minutes, are non-invasive, and are completely painless. The Erchonia cold laser technology offers pain relief treatment with no side effects, scarring, burning, or downtime.
While receiving cold laser treatments, patients don’t feel a thing because it is just light waves, so there will be no sound and you’ll feel no vibration or heat.
Cold laser therapy is an effective chiropractic treatment option for numerous conditions, such as:
- Neck pain
- Low back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Hand and foot pain
- Sprains and strains
- Pain from conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Arthritic joints
- And much more!
The human body is made to heal itself. Cold laser therapy helps the body heal and stimulates the body to release endorphins, which is the body’s natural pain killer. Cold laser therapy stimulates lymphatic draining and increases the body’s natural blood circulation. Increased fluid circulation helps release harmful toxins from the body and relax the body’s muscles, which if untreated can cause body fatigue.
