“Cold laser therapy helps reduce healing times. A laser is basically a focused beam of light that emits photon energy. When the light is focused properly, all the photons are traveling in the same direction and at the same wavelength; this is also known as coherent light.
Within the injured musculoskeletal tissue, low-level laser light initiates increased microcirculation, and enhanced tissue regeneration. The overall effects are decreased pain and inflammation, and increased range of motion. When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.
The Erchonia cold laser is a new treatment adjunct to reduce healing times.
The Erchonia cold laser device has gained recent FDA approval for the non-surgical treatment of neck and shoulder complaints and is being used widely in the NFL and by the USPS Tour de France team doctor. The beneficial effects of the Erchonia laser are currently being researched by leading plastic surgeons for use in liposuction procedures to reduce swelling and speed healing times.
Laser therapy can be helpful with:
tendonitis · frozen shoulder · fractures · post-operative wounds · sprain-strains · scar tissue chronic or acute pain · wound healing · arthritis · migraines · disc herniations · minor nerve damage · carpal tunnel syndrome”

I have been using the cold laser in my practice for years now. I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am at the results I get for my patients with it use.
