Laser therapy is used in sports medicine rehabilitation clinics to:
- decrease pain and inflammation
- improve mobility and range of motion
- treat acute soft tissue injuries
How does laser therapy work?
ERCHONIA® lasers emit visible coherent light energy that is applied to the injured tissue. The laser light is absorbed by the mitochondrial photoreceptors, and enhances cellular metabolism. Lasers increase the mitochondrial production of ATP, which is the form of energy the cell uses to function. It is know that even small changes in ATP levels can significantly alter cellular metabolism. Mitochondria play a key role in health, disease, and aging.
Today we can safely say that therapeutic lasers have an important effect, and a very positive one. Within the injured musculoskeletal tissue, low-level laser therapy initiates increased microcirculation and enhanced tissue regeneration. These positive effects are attained without undesirable side effects.
ERCHONIA® was the first laser in the world to receive FDA 510(k) market clearance for the treatment of chronic neck and shoulder pain.
ERCHONIA® Laser is the world’s most trusted low-level laser!
