Erchonia Cold Laser Back Pain Treatment From Your Chiropractor in McMurray
Musculoskeletal pain and stiffness caused by strain, sprains, tendonitis and other soft tissue conditions require treatment that directly address the underlying cause of the pain--inflamed, damaged tissues. Pain medications provide temporary pain relief but do not contribute to healing muscle and ligaments at the cellular level where healing should begin. Erchonia cold laser therapy provided by your chiropractor in McMurray PA can induce regeneration and healing of damaged soft tissues without surgery or medications using low-level laser energy.
The Science Behind Erchonia Cold Laser Therapy
Low-level laser (LLL) therapy stimulates cellular processes by amplifying the production of mitochondrial ATP, the chemical needed for cell activity, growth, and reproduction. In addition, ATP is essential to providing cells with enough energy substrates for optimal healing and recovery. Wavelengths assigned to LLL therapy sessions not only reduce wound inflammation but also increases endorphin release for holistic pain relief.
Delivered through a handheld device, Erchonia cold laser energy involves light energy "bundles" passing through several layers of skin to reach cell membranes and begin the curative process. Soft tissue cells energized by LLL undergo enzymatic physiological changes encouraging microcirculation and expedited regeneration of damaged tissues. Originally approved by the FDA for back and neck pain management, Erchonia cold laser is now approved to treat a wide variety of painful, musculoskeletal conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and athletic injuries.
Erchonia Cold Laser Therapy Treatment for Athletes
Scientifically proven to help athletes recover from back pain, shoulder injuries, plantar fasciitis, jumper's knee, bursitis, Achilles tendonitis and tennis elbow, Erchonia cold laser therapy also exerts positive effects on skeletal muscle fatigue by causing biochemical marker changes seen in post-exercise recovery. In addition, athletes receiving regular LLL treatments from their chiropractor in McMurray PA may reduce their risk of suffering recurring injuries and pain. Healing of damaged tissues initiated by Erchonia cold laser energy actually increases fibroblast and collagen activity to strengthen tissues as they heal naturally. This can also prevent or delay the need for surgery for athletes
How Long Does a Cold Laser Session Last?
Treatment times vary depending on the severity, location, and type of tissue injury, with the shortest session lasting about 15 minutes and the longest up to one hour. Repeated treatments are usually needed to reinforce therapeutic cellular processes and enhance healing mechanisms. In some cases, there may be dose-dependent responses that react better to multiple treatments than a single, high-dose treatment. Your chiropractor in McMurray will discuss specifics of your treatment plan after evaluating your symptoms and injuries and recommend LLL wavelengths to address your condition.
