Why Choose Cold Laser Therapy?
Around the world, laser therapy is becoming the choice for patients seeking painless, noninvasive and drug free treatment for a wide variety of pain, injuries and conditions and is known to heal your body 60% faster!!! Low level lasers send accurately measured non-thermal photons of light to the treatment site. These light waves supply energy to the body optimizing the immune responses of the blood. Oxygen and energy is supplied to every cell to heal and repair at an accelerated rate. Laser therapy is FDA approved and absolutely painless. A treatment may last from 2-30 minutes and following a laser therapy session, 75-80% of patients notice an immediate improvement!
Is It Safe?
The ML830 Laser is a painless, noninvasive laser that has demonstrated significant benefits for patients around the world including
- Rapidly reduces pain
- Increases the speed of healing through it's complex augmentation of the normal inflammatory process
- Increases the strength of healed tissue, making it less vulnerable to re-injury.
The ML830 Laser has been used with great success for over 30 years in many parts of the world including Europe, Asia, and Canada. Because the United States FDA is one of the most conservative medical authorities in the world, the ML830 has only recently become available here in the states. After 12 years of study and research the ML830 is now approved with the only warning being "No direct contact with the eyes". In fact, because no heat is generated, the Laser can even be used over metal implants, fractures, and even growth plates.
This makes the Laser even safer than Ultrasound. More information is available at www.microlightcorp.com. The ML830 Laser is capable of enhancing repair of muscle, tendon, ligament, joint surfaces, and nerves. A list of some common conditions seen include:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Rotator Cuff Strain
- Frozen Shoulder
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Knee Pain
- Sprains & Strains
- Post Surgical Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- And Many Other Ailments
How Does It Work?
Treatment with the ML830 Cold Laser is painless and typically lasts between 10 and 40 minutes. The Laser emits non-visible light at a wavelength of 830 nanometers. These photons of light are capable of stimulating cells up to 5 centimeters below the skin's surface, making it the deepest penetrating modality currently available.
Research has shown that these photons are specific in stimulating only tissues that have been damaged, leaving normal tissue unaffected. Changes begin at the cellular level as the light stimulates the mitochondria (the power source of our cells) of damaged cells resulting in a cascade of cellular responses. This stimulation energizes cells and accelerates the body's normal healing processes.
The inflammatory process is accelerated allowing for rapid pain reduction and faster repair of healing tissue. In addition to speeding the rate of healing, the ML830 Laser also augments the strength of the tissue once it is healed. This Laser is unique in that it creates true healing rather than masks pain as in the case of ice, heat, and electrical stimulation. Because of this, great interest has been generated in high-level professional athletics and has fostered heavy utilization of the Laser in such arenas.
