FDA Approved Medical Technology. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been used worldwide for over 40
years to relieve pain, remove scars, heal wounds, regenerate nerves. On January 17th, 2002, the first U.S. Low
Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) company, Erchonia, the laser you’re being treated with, received FDA clearance
through clinical trial. The study took 100 patients complaining of Neck and Shoulder pain. Half were treated
other half received LLLT. The treatment group beat the placebo group by 66%! That’s 66% faster relief and
more complete relief, a remarkable margin. Such a study is known as “double blind” research, and is the gold
standard for measuring the validity of a therapy. Similar studies have been passed by the FDA for Carpal
Tunnel, Wounds and Scar Tissue. There are over 2000 published studies on LLLT reporting zero negative side
effects. Visit www.Erchonia.com for in-depth research.
What can I expect from this therapy? In a nutshell, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) causes tissues to heal
faster – muscle, skin and nerve – 66% faster according to the above FDA study.
Specifically, LLLT works at the cell 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 (nicknamed the
“powerhouse” because it produces ATP) to produce slightly higher amounts of ATP. Thus with more ATP at
the cell level, tissues heal faster, and therefore relief comes quicker.
Conditions and Symptoms. As is true of many alternative therapies, you may receive alternative benefits to
being treated, in addition to what you wanted fixed in the first place. 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.
Number of Treatments needed. In general 5-12 treatments are necessary to begin the healing process of
tissue, although in some cases relief can begin immediately. Maximum treatment would be 1x per day per
area, minimum would be 1x per week to still see results. Multiple areas of complaint may be treated. This
treatment cycle may need to be repeated, and eventually spread out.
