Leading Edge Technology Helps Our Patients Get Well Faster
From shoulder pain, sprained ankles, and spinal injury, to helping patients suffering chronic post-operative pain, cold laser brings relief! Dr Perkins has received specialized training in order to use the same cold laser technology now used by teams like the Texas Rangers, and an ever-growing list of top level athletes.
About Low Level Laser Therapy
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been used worldwide for over 40 years to relieve acute and chronic pain, heal injuries or wounds, treat scars and scar tissue, and treat nerve conditions. On January 17th, 2002, the first U.S. Low Level Laser Therapy study took 100 patients complaining of Neck and Shoulder pain. Half were treated with a useless red light (placebo group), similar to that on a grocery check-out scanner, and the other half received LLLT. The treatment group beat the placebo group by 66%! That's 66% faster relief and more complete relief, a remarkable margin. Such a study is known as "double blind" research, and is the gold standard for measuring the validity of a therapy. Similar studies on LLLT report zero negative side effects. Visit www.Erchonia.com for in-depth research.
What does this thing do again?
In a nutshell, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) works from within cells to aid in the reduction of pain and inflammation and promote tissue repair. And it's painless!
Specifically, LLLT seems to have a therapeutic effect on mitochondria, which produce a chemical known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate) to run the body and heal tissue. All of our body's activities result from the use of ATP, it's like gasoline to a car. Thus with more ATP at the cell level, tissues heal faster, and therefore relief comes quicker.
Conditions and Symptoms
The list of symptoms responding to LLLT is growing, and more valid research is being performed on a daily basis. If you have a particular question about conditions not listed below, feel free to schedule a no-charge consultation with the doctor.
- Acute and Chronic Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Neck & Back Pain
- Nerve & Disc Pain
- Repetitive Motion Injury
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Scars / Scar Tissue
- Headaches & Migraines
Number of Treatments Needed
Each patient is unique, so results can vary from one patient to the next. Typically 10 to 20 treatments are necessary to begin the healing process of tissue. Maximum treatment would be 1-2x per day per area, minimum would be about 2x per week to still see results. For chronic conditions, this treatment cycle may need to be repeated periodically as needed.
