Moskowitz Chiropractic just acquired a new, more sophisticated method of providing you with Low Level Therapy (also known as Cold Laser).
Our new wireless, handheld Erconia laser generates both red and violet spectrums for accelerated healing and pain relief (wavelength of 405nm and 635nm).
What is Low Level Laser Therapy?
It is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free modality that is used for a variety of conditions such as, acute and chronic pain, body-contouring, acne and appearance of cellulite.
Housed within the mitochondria, the cell energy manufacturer, are receptors capable of absorbing distinct parameters of light. Think of these receptors like any drug receptors. When we consume a prescription medication, the compound is absorbed by the body and it locates a particular 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 this 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.
There are no side effects.
Low Level Laser Therapy is FDA approved, effective, and leading the way for pain treatment to avoid dangerous pain killers. It’s also beneficial for your wallet.
