Erchonia FX 635
The FX 635 low-level laser, or cold laser, can relieve pain, reduce edema and inflammation, and promotes healing using low-intensity photonic energy. This type of technology also promotes cellular regeneration through painless biostimulation.
Low-level laser is non-invasive, fast and effective.
The potential applications of low-level laser are almost limitless; however, to date Erchonia has been cleared by the FDA for the regenerative treatment of Plantar Fasciitis, and treatment of Neck and Shoulder Pain.
Laser Mechanism of Action
By applying light (photons) to the tissue, the light is absorbed in the mitochondria and increases protein synthesis and cell proliferation. As a result, tissue repair is accelerated and pain is reduced. There is also an increase in the production of ATP (energy).
Photonic stimuli excite the body’s cells infusing them with energy, thus resulting in three primary reactions:
REDUCTION OF INFLAMMATION
INCREASED BLOOD FLOW
- Increased Angiogenesis and Neovascularization
- Increased Collagen Production
- Increased Muscle Regeneration and Decreased Muscle Atrophy
- Increased Bone Formation
- Increased Cartilage Formation
- Increased Nerve Regeneration
- Decreased Inflammation and Edema
- Reduced Spasm
- Pain Relief
- Increased Circulation
- Improved Flexibility and Function
- Improved Healing,
- Reduced Symptoms Associated with Osteoarthritis
Low-Level Laser Therapy can help with the following conditions:
Osteoarthritis, Jumper’s Knees, Ligament and Meniscal Injuries, Ankle Sprain/Strain, Plantar Fasciitis, Bursitis, Disc Herniation, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow, Repetitive Use Injuries, Rotator Cuff Strain, Cervical Strain/Sprain, Headaches, Biceps Tendonitis and many more!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How is low-level laser therapy administered?
The probe containing the laser diode(s) are held in place or moved gently over the treatment area at a distance of anywhere from 4” – 12”.
Q. How deep into the tissue can laser light penetrate?
The depth of penetration is dependent on multiple factors including mass and density. However, the laser has been shown to effect subcutaneous cells.
Q. Is low-level laser therapy painful?
No, most people do not feel anything. For those that have reported a feeling, it is nothing more than a slight tingling.
Q. How long does it take for the laser to heal or improve a condition?
This is dependent of the application; however, progress is immediately evident.
Q. Are there any side effects?
Some persons have reported a sense of deep relaxation that may cause drowsiness. To date, There are no known and/or published adverse effects of low-level laser therapy.
