THE UNIQUE THERAPY THAT PROMOTES HEALING ON A CELLULAR AND MOLECULAR LEVEL

COLD LASER PHOTOTHERAPY
is also known as Low Level Laser Therapy, or LLLT.  It is part of the rapidly developing field of photodynamic research.  We are proud to offer the FDA-approved and state-of-the-art Chattanooga Vectra Genisys Laser System.

In contrast to a “hot” laser a surgeon would use to cut tissue, “cold” laser is administering certain wavelengths of light  through the skin and into the body to trigger an amazing series of chemical reactions to speed healing.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Do you remember in high school biology studying the way sunlight triggers chemical reactions in plants? It is called  photosynthesis, a term most of us are familiar with.  Researchers have found that in humans (and in most animals) there are receptor molecules in not only in cell membranes but in mitochondrial membranes as well. These molecules, when activated by certain wavelengths of light, trigger a “cascade of healing.” This is a “photochemical response” similar to photosynthesis in plants. NASA was one of the first to publish laser research in this country. “Low energy photon irradiation by light in the far-red to near infra-red spectral range with low energy lasers or LED arrays has been found to modulate various biological processes.” This process is called PHOTOBIOMODULATION.

The following is a list of only some of the known reactions inside the body:
1. Anti-inflammatory
2. Analgesic (reduces pain)
3. Faster Cartilage & Ligament Repair
4. Improved Circulation
5. Increased Metabolic Activity
6. Trigger & Acupuncture Point    Stimulation/Balancing
7.  Reduction of Scar Tissue
8.  Improved Nerve Function
9.  Enhances Immune System
10.Speeds Wound Healing
