Have you tried other therapies or even surgery to get out of pain?
A New Weapon to Effectively Treat Pain Without Harmful Side Effects
Let us introduce you to Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT®). Healing Power on a cellular level!
We are proud to say our office is a low-level Laser provider for the Erchonia laser that has been proven through a double-blind clinical trial to decrease pain by 66%.
Prevalence of Chronic Pain in the US
In the United States it is estimated that 56 million individuals suffer from some form of chronic pain annually. The prevalence of chronic pain accounts for the greatest number of work absenteeism than any other group of diseases, and the prevalence of chronic pain reports is estimated to increase. Often, people with acute or chronic pain (low back pain, a sore knee, or persistent neck stiffness) will quickly turn to over-the-counter pain medicine for relief; however, the FDA recently issued strict warnings regarding the misuse and overdosing of over-the-counter pain medications due to severe complications such as stomach ulcers, hearing disorders and liver failure. Further, a growing concern amongst physicians exists regarding the side-effects associated with prescription pain medication.
How it Works
The effects of Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT®) are photochemical (cold), not thermal. Hot lasers in the medical world are used place for surgical precision while cold lasers are used for healing precision.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser, is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free modality that is used for a variety of conditions such as, acute and chronic pain, body-contouring, acne and appearance of cellulite.
During treatment of the tissue with the 635nm low level laser, an interaction between cells and photons takes place— a photochemical reaction. Photons from the laser affect the tissue at the cellular level. The cold laser enters the tissue, alters cell membrane permeability, and at the cellular level is absorbed in the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the “Powerhouse” of the cells and make ATP which is needed for the life enhancement process of every cell. Housed within the mitochondria, the cell energy manufacturer, are receptors capable of absorbing distinct parameters of light. Think of these receptors like any drug receptors. When we consume a prescription medication, the compound is absorbed by the body and it locates a particular receptor; based upon its molecular design, will bind to that receptor. Once the drug binds, a secondary reaction inside the cell takes place. A similar mechanism is observed when exposing the body to a particular color of light. During a laser treatment, the light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by this receptor within the mitochondria. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production, biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation and enhanced blood and oxygen flow. The increased blood flow reduces inflammation that can cause pain. Stop the pain without harmful side effects.
