Low Level Laser Therapy (3LTTM) is popularly used for:
Low Level Laser Therapy (3LTTM), commonly known as LLLT, is a form of phototherapy which involves the application of low power coherent light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing. Low Level Laser Therapy (3LTTM) is used to increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation, increase range of motion and give pain relief.
Erchonia Medical is the leading research company on lasers and they are the developer of 3LTTM technology. Cold laser therapy is a major advancement in healing and is rewriting the medical books on what is possible for chronic injuries, pain management, neurological impairment, and facilitating the healing process in disease conditions.
HOW IT WORKS
How Does Low Level Laser Therapy work? The effects of Low Level Laser Therapy (3LTTM) are photochemical (cold), not thermal. Hot lasers in the medical world are used for surgical precision while cold lasers are used for healing precision. During treatment of the tissue with the 635 nm laser, an interaction between cells and photons takes place---a photochemical reaction. Photons from the laser affect the tissue at the cellular level. The cold laser enters the tissue, alters cell membrane permeability, and at the cellular level is absorbed in the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the “Powerhouse” of the cells and make ATP which is needed for the life enhancement process of every cell which facilitates:
What are the advantages over other modes of therapy? The Erchonia Laser has been found to offer superior healing and pain relieving effects when compared to other electrotherapeutic modalities. The results seem equally untouchable for early stages of acute injuries, and for chronic problems. The Erchonia Laser can also be used for acupuncture point stimulation.
Erchonia Low Level Laser Therapy (3LTTM) is a universal method of treating muscle, tendon, ligament, connective tissue, bone, neurological dysfunction or damage, and skin tissue with one simple piece of equipment. When the laser is applied with chiropractic care the best results are achieved to organize the nervous system and promote healing. Erchonia laser therapy is a major advantage for athletes due to the neurological applications and the extremely fast results that can be achieved.
Clinical uses of Low Level Laser Therapy (3LTTM) There are a number of potential clinical uses for the Erchonia Laser. The Erchonia Laser is very effective as a “point and shoot” modality, however, a basic understanding of neurology and applications taught in this seminar will allow the practitioner to maximize the healing precision. Erchonia Lasers are being used by those in chiropractic, medical, dental, acupuncture, podiatry, osteopathic, veterinary, physiotherapy, acupuncture practice and cosmetic applications. This therapy is very effective and safe for children.
The portability and diversity of battery powered diode laser systems allows treatment to be carried out in clinical and field locations. This opens up possibilities for the immediate and therefore more effective treatment of sporting and athletic injuries, such as sprains, stains, muscle tears, and inflammatory conditions.
