Low Level Laser Therapy for Pain Relief!
Optimum Health Chiropractic takes pride in being a provider of Low Level Laser Therapy using the Erchonia laser. This therapy has undergone rigorous testing and a double-blind clinical trial, confirming its ability to effectively reduce pain.
Unlike hot lasers used for surgical procedures, Low Level Laser Therapy operates at a photochemical level rather than thermal. By utilizing a 635nm low level laser, this treatment promotes a photochemical reaction between cells and photons, affecting tissue at the cellular level. The cold laser penetrates the tissue, modifies cell membrane permeability, and is absorbed by the mitochondria, which are responsible for generating ATP and enhancing cellular function.
Optimum Health offers this FDA-approved therapy as a safe and effective solution for various types of pain, including chronic neck pain, post-operative pain, shoulder pain, heel pain associated with plantar fasciitis, and much more.
The effects of Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT®) are photochemical (cold), not thermal. Hot lasers in the medical world are used for surgical precision while cold lasers are used for healing precision. 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.
