Buzek Chiropractic Clinic is pleased to announce the arrival of the Erchonia PL5000 Cold Laser

Erchonia Medical made history by becoming the first to receive FDA market clearance for the treatment of chronic pain, proven through two double blind studies. The Erchonia Lasers are the most advanced lasers on the market, with their sleek revolutionary design, patented line generated beam, and the ability to program independent frequencies in all of their family of lasers.

Some of the researched benefits of the Erchonia Cold Laser are:

  1. Reduce pain by stimulating cells to produce their own endorphins, a natural painkiller
  2. Promote faster healing by stimulating cells to increase the production of two major healing enzymes by as much as 75%
  3. Reduce inflammation by as much as 75%
  4. Increase bone repair speed
  5. Relax muscles and muscle spasms
  6. Decrease swelling by stimulating lymphatic drainage
  7. Enhance the immune system by increasing the number of “killer” cells by 400-900%, and most importantly
  8. Re-energize cell membranes to allow transport of essential nutrients across cell walls (nutrients will not cross an injured or sick cell wall, thus slowing healing) allowing a healthy new cell to grow
  9. To inhibit cancer cell growth and, at the same time, enhance healthy cell growth. Research at the University of Munich shows that the Cold Lasers have a bio-modulation effect. The importance of bio-modulation is the ability to inhibit the activity of overactive cells (inflammation) and stimulate under active cells (atrophy), which distinguishes it from the universal damage caused by chemotherapy or radiation

Most protocols are based upon the physiology of certain cell types. For example, skin cells take approximately 28-35 days to regenerate. Therefore, a wound or burn would call for a 3 times a week treatment for 4 weeks, depending on the severity. Muscles regenerate at 6 weeks with a 3 times a week protocol. The protocols are set up on a 3 times a week basis in order to get ahead of the inflammatory cycle. One of the primary benefits of the laser is the ability to short circuit the vicious cycle of instability, which causes pain and limits the necessary exercise to restore stability.

This is why I use the Erchonia Cold Laser, in my practice. This is the same device used to treat some of the world’s most elite athletes. The training staff of NFL football teams, including the New England Patriots and New York Jets, has used it. The US Olympic Committee enthusiastically endorsed cold laser therapy in January of 2004. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and other inflammatory conditions like: tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis and bursitis. Fibromyalgia, neck pain, back pain, joint sprains, muscle strains, tendonitis, knee pain, hip pain, joint injuries or conditions, like TMJ, arthritis, Frozen Shoulder and Neurological injuries—spinal discs, headaches and many, many other problems.
