Cold Laser Therapy

Erchonia made history by being the first low-level laser in the world to gain FDA market clearance for the treatment of chronic neck and shoulder pain.

How does Cold Laser Therapy work?

Erchonia lasers emit visible coherent light that is applied to affected areas. Bundles of light energy pass through the dermal layers, and are received within the cell membrane by specific energy photo acceptors. The increase in intracellular energy results in altered cell membrane permeability, and physiological changes occur through an enzyme cascade to affect several biological processes.

Within the injured musculoskeletal tissue, low-level laser light initiates increased microcirculation and enhances tissue generation. The overall effects are decreased pain and inflammation, and increased range of motion.
