Laser Uses for Medical Professionals

How Erchonia Cold Laser Devices Assist Medical Professionals


Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), or cold laser therapy is a viable option for professionals throughout the medical industry. With new products and uses being researched every day, there is limitless potential for LLLT use in healthcare. Many laser applications are available on the market today that make cold laser equipment an indispensable tool for chiropractors, physical therapists and health centers nationwide.

How the Best Low-Level Lasers Provide Pain Relief

LLLT (or photobiomodulation therapy) uses lasers to provide patients with relief from chronic pain by altering cellular function. By primarily targeting the enzyme cytochrome c oxidase, low-level lasers can increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress. Cell metabolism improves, allowing patients to heal quickly from a variety of issues such as:

  • Chronic Low Back Pain
  • Chronic Neck and Shoulder Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Acne

LLLT has been reviewed throughout the years as a favorable treatment option for conditions such as these, as organizations and journals like the American College of PhysiciansBMJTask Force on Neck Pain and Its Associated Disorders and other leading health professionals have credited LLLT for its benefits. And with 15 FDA market clearances, Erchonia is a leading manufacturer of lasers for LLLT treatments.
