FDA approved Low Level Laser Therapy by Erchonia
We are proud to say our office is a low level laser provider by Erchonia which is the ONLY 3LT that has been proven to decrease pain by 66% in a double-blind clinical study. The study used 100 patients complaining of neck & shoulder pain. Half of the patients were treated with a placebo red LED light (commonly marketed by others as a low level or cold laser) and the other half with the only FDA approved Erchonia laser. The treatment group beat the placebo group in marked pain relief by 66%!
**In a nutshell, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) causes soft (skin, muscle, nerve & connective) tissues to heal faster! Specifically, LLLT works at the cellular level. Human cells produce a chemical known as ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) to run the body and heal tissue. All of our body's activities result from the use of ATP, it's like gasoline to a car. LLLT stimulates a micro-structure within the cells called the mitochondria (commonly referred as the "powerhouse" because it produces ATP) to produce slightly higher amounts of ATP. Thus, with more ATP at the cell level tissues heal faster, therefore relief comes quicker.
As is true of many alternative therapies, you may receive alternative benefits to being treated, in addition to what your goals were originally. This is because the ATP being produced is "systemic", meaning although we're focusing the laser on a particular area, the ATP is ultimately being sent throughout your entire body. The list of symptoms responding to LLLT is growing, and more valid research is being performed on a daily basis. Examples of the conditions treated by LLLT are as follows:
- Acute and Chronic Pain
- Neck & Back Pain
- Headaches & Migraines
- Neck & Back Pain
- Nerve & Disc Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Sports Injuries
- Scars and Scar tissue
- Wound Healing
Number of Treatments needed: 4-12 treatments are necessary to begin the healing process of tissue, although in some cases relief can begin immediately. Treatment would be 1x per day, per area and 5x per week to see results. Multiple areas of complaint may be treated. This treatment cycle may need to be repeated, and eventually spread out.

Orthotics and Heel Lifts - Build a Solid Foundation
Foot Levelers custom computer generated orthotic inserts help to stabilize and correct improper foot positioning allowing proper motion of all joints associated with walking and running by supporting the body's foundation. Corrective orthotics take stress away from the joints allowing you to heal faster, feel better, and move more efficiently. In cases where there is a leg length inequality, heel lifts will be recommended to accommodate for the difference. Your feet do not have to hurt for them to be the source of imbalance or pain somewhere else in your body.
