Erchonia laser is used for acute and chronic pain as well as post-operative pain. Many have found the Erchonia laser to be an integral part of the healing process from post surgery pain, and many other ailments, and you can too. The Erchonia laser is the FIRST low level laser to ever be FDA cleared; and Erchonia is the most highly reputed low level laser manufacturer in the country.
Cold laser therapy causes tissues to heal faster – muscle, skin and nerve – 66% faster according to a double blind FDA study. This study took 100 patients complaining of neck and shoulder pain. Half were treated with a useless red light, similar to that of a computer mouse or grocery check-out, and the other half received LLLT. The treatment group experienced 66% faster relief, and more complete relief from their pain, a remarkable margin. Similar studies have since been conducted by the FDA showing the impact of LLLT on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, wound healing and scar tissue repair, all showing excellent results and zero negative side effects.

How does it work?
LLLT works so well because it goes to work at the cellular level. Unlike heat lasers, which are used in surgery to cut problem tissue, the cold laser does not generate heat and destroy tissue; instead it stimulates healing. Human cells produce a chemical known as ATP, to run the body and heal tissue. All of our body’s activities result from the use of ATP; it’s like gasoline to a car. LLLT stimulates a micro-structure within the cells called the mitochondria to produce higher amounts of ATP, which causes faster tissue healing, reduced inflammation, and decreased pain.
