Cold Laser Therapy
Is based on photochemical and photobiological effects in cells and tissues. With laser light “certain cell functions are stimulated,” especially the increase of a cell’s ATP energy, and the production of proteins. Cold laser therapy is used to treat a wide variety of acute and chronic musculoskeletal aches and pains. The Erchonia Medical Laser that we use at Porter Chiropractic made history on January 17, 2002, by being the first low-level laser in the United States to be given marketing clearance by the FDA for the treatment of chronic neck and shoulder pain.
Cold laser is completely painless. It is a different frequency from the hot laser used in surgery.
