As a Santa Barbara chiropractor for over 25 years, the use of cold laser therapy has alleviated chronic pain, reduced scarring and accelerated the recovery process for many of my chiropractic patients.
Over ten thousand chiropractors throughout the US are using Cold Laser Therapy to augment their treatments. Cold Laser offers pain control by reducing inflammation and irritation. Over 4000 studies have been conducted in recent years to validate the effectiveness of cold laser therapy. The Erchonia cold lasers treatment systems was the first to be cleared by the FDA.
Healing With Cold Lasers
The cold laser produces an impulse of light at a wavelength (approximate 900nm) that maximized the energy (in photons) at a desire depth, usually 10-13cm (4-5 inches) deep. This may be combined with other laser diode with a shorter wavelength (875nm) to add photons to the shallower levels of tissue. In addition, red light diode with a wavelength of 660nm may be used to add energy to even shallower levels of tissues.
