How Does Erchonia Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Cold laser therapy, is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug free modality that is used for a variety of conditions. Housed within the mitochondria, the cell energy manufacturer, are receptors capable of absorbing distinct parameters of light. Think of these receptors like any rug receptors. When we consume a prescription medication, the compound is absorbed by the body and it locates a particular receptor and based upon its molecular design, will bind to that receptor. Once the drug binds, a secondary reaction inside the cell takes place. A similar mechanism is observed when exposing the body to a particular color of light. During a laser treatment the light will penetrate the skin and is absorbed by the receptor within the mitochondria. Receptor stimulation with light promotes energy production , biochemical reactions, protein and growth factor synthesis, cell growth and proliferation and enhanced blood and oxygen flow.
Prevalence of Chronic Pain in the USA
In the United States it is estimated that 56 million individuals suffer from some form of chronic pain annually. The prevalence of chronic pain accounts for the greatest number of work absenteeism than any other group of diseases, and the prevalence of chronic pain reports is estimated to increase. Often, people with acute or chronic pain (low back pain, a sore knee, or persistent neck stiffness) will quickly turn to over the counter pain medicine for relief; however, the FDA recently issued strict warnings regarding the misuse and overdosing of over the counter pain medication due to severe complications such as stomach ulcers, hearing disorders, liver failure, fatal heart and cardiovascular issues. Further, a growing concern amongst physicians exists regarding the side effects associated with prescription pain medication.
