Now there is a NEW revolutionary treatment that has been proven safe and effective by the FDA.
Welcome to the Erchonia line of handheld low level lasers:
How does it work?
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 for headache, neck, shoulder, hip, lower back and knee.
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, and 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.
Increased blood flow reduces inflammation that can cause pain.
Ask your doctor about the benefits of low level lasers and learn how the Erchonia® laser can work to treat pain... The answers are simpler than you might think.
