Low Level Laser Therapy

What is FX Laser Therapy?

The FX 405 is the latest technology of light therapy available to treat chronic and acute pain, decrease inflammation, treat traumatic brain injuries, and many other conditions. The FX 405 Series is the only FDA approved laser on the market to treat chronic low back pain. For patients looking for a drug-free alternative to chronic and acute pain; Laser therapy is proving to be a medical breakthrough with incredible results, no harmful side effects, and, most promising of all, no potential for drug addiction.

How Does FX Laser Therapy Work?

Cold laser sends billions of light particles into the affected area, increasing the energy output of the cells mitochondria helping it to decrease pain and inflammation, heal faster, and communicate better with the cells around it.

What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low Level Laser Therapy is the use of red and near-infrared monochromatic light to enhance the body’s natural healing processes. A laser is essentially a focused beam of light that emits photon energy. When light is focused properly, the photons are all traveling in the same direction and at the same wavelength; this is known as coherent light. Cells communicate to one another through coherent light.

How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

The laser device is held close to the skin over the area being treated. During the painless treatment, the light energy is absorbed and converted to biochemical energy, which stimulates the cells. Laser energy increases circulation which draws water, nutrients, and oxygen to the damaged area. The natural healing process of the cells is activated. This results in reducing pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, and swelling. Increased blood flow stimulates repair of the tissue.

Unlike the more publicized heat lasers, low-level lasers (3LT®) do not have a thermal effect and are used to stimulate rather than destroy tissue.
