The Erchonia FX635 and the Erchonia EVRL are FDA market cleared lasers. Commonly, these are referred to as cold lasers or low level laser therapy. We prefer to use this term instead of cold laser because the patient does not feel anything when the laser is running!
The regenerative powers of this low level laser technology can reduce inflammation and eliminate pain while increasing the rate of cellular healing. This process of cellular regeneration is often referred to as photobiomodulation. In other words, the laser utilizes light energy to impact cells and enhance their natural processes.
So who is it good for? Quite simply, everyone! The only potential contraindications would be for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, those with a pacemaker or defibrillator, active cancer or having been treated for cancer in the last year, and those currently taking medications that make them light sensitive. Both of these lasers have the 605nm wavelength light which has been shown to help with all of the conditions outlined below. The Erchonia EVRL also has a 405 nm laser which has been shown to have strong anti microbial and anti fungal effects. This feature is particularly helpful around surgical sites, burns, and other bites or wounds.
Conditions that research have shown it helps include:
Cervical spine pain
Disc herniations and injuries
Rotator cuff injuries
Tennis or Golfer's elbow
Post surgical sites
Autism Spectrum Disorder
AND MANY MORE!
