You might have heard of cold lasers for the treatment of pain and inflammation, but did you know that even chronic inflammation can be reduced within minutes with low-level cold laser therapy?
At Clear Mind Idaho, within the Karlfeldt Center, Dr. Harmon and his team utilize Erchonia's latest patented laser system, the PL-Touch to stimulate cellular healing. By applying the cold laser to an area, its coherent light stimulates cell activation which initiates a chain of reactions, from the cell membrane to the cytoplasm, to the nucleus and DNS. This is called cellular amplification, whose demonstration earned the Nobel Prize in 1994.
Lasers that use heat to cut or burn tissue, low energy cold lasers boost biochemical reactions in the targeted tissue. Visible light is directed to a specific area, the light energy passes through the skin, and enters cell membranes by special light receivers. This increases the cells energy which results in changed cell membrane permeability. Several biological processes are then affected, such as ATP stimulation, that then initiates an increase in cell regeneration and protection, and decreases cell death.
The results for physical injuries and disorders include a reduction in swelling, an increase in tissue healing, reduction in pain, increased mobility, and maximum recovery. Cold lasers can help with the following:
- Relieves acute and chronic pain
- Stimulates the immune system
- Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
- Increases blood supply
- Stimulates nerve function
- Develops collagen and muscle tissue
- Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
- Promotes faster wound healing
- Reduces clot formation and inflammation
In addition, cold lasers show potential for brain health. The National Institutes of Health is currently conducting research on the use of low-level light for conditions involving neurology, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, degenerative brain disease, spinal cord injury, and peripheral nerve regeneration.
Cold Laser Therapy has been featured on TV shows like Dr. Oz, Nightline, Good Morning American, Rachel Ray and The Doctors. Athletes from professional teams like NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL seek Erchonia Cold Laser Therapy, as well as celebrities like Jon Bon Jovi, Randy Travis and Celine Dion.
