Cold Low Level Laser Therapy
Utilizing photonic absorption, laser light energy converts into chemical energy which initiates a cascade of events at a cellular level to promote healing. Cold L.L.L.T. has been proven to decrease pain, improve flexibility and range of motion. It also improves healing time, post-surgically and for faster burn repair. Many other experimental benefits have been noticed by practitioners and patients. There are hundreds of research projects if you want to know more visit www.erchonia.com.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
Having healthy cells is not a passive process. Active, regular tuning-up of our cells is not only feasible, but also necessary to slow aging and reduce the risk of cell dysfunction. We are, after all, only as healthy as our cells. Imperceptible cell dysfunction that is not corrected early can lead to disease. Fine-tuning can be done only in minutes, using pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs). In addition, where there is a known imbalance (when symptoms are present) or there is a known disease or condition, PEMF treatments, used either alone or along with other therapies, can often help cells re-balance dysfunction faster. Through the work of much research, many PEMF decides have gained FDA approval. PEMF devices have shown to: reduce pain, inflammation, platelet adhesion, and the effects of stress on the body. It also improves energy, circulation, blood and tissue oxygenation, sleep quality, blood pressure and cholesterol level, the intake of nutrients, cellular detoxification and the ability to regenerate cells, balance the immune system, stimulate RNA and DNA, accelerate repair of bone and soft tissue, and relax muscles.
Electical Stimulation (E-Stim)
E-Stim uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or muscle group to contract with a varying degree of force, which helps muscles strengthen and relax while promoting blood supply to the area. E-Stim can also be used to decrease muscle spasms and adhesions and to accelerated the overall healing process. A common form of E-Stim is Interferential Current Therapy (IFC), which uses 4 electrodes to produce alternating currents of different frequencies to cause inhibition of the nervous system for relaxation and healing. Another relative of E-Stim is Microcurrent Therapy, which uses very small amounts of electrical current similar to the natural electrical impulses of the body, so the patient rarely feels it.
Meridian Point Stimulation
Meridians are the energy pathways of the body. Meridian stimulation has been used for over 3,000 years in Chinese medicine to treat a variety of health conditions including digestive, neurological, immune, lymphatic, cardiovascular, endocrine related, hormonal, respiratory, musculoskeletal, reproductive, skin related, and mental/emotional challenges as well as helping with detoxification. There are several types of treatments used to stimulate the meridians. Lasers, magnets, and heat can all be used for stimulation, acupressure is done by hand or finger pressure and tapping, "Ti Shen" utilizes an instrument for stimulation, and acupuncture is done with small needles. We implement all of these treatments with the exception of acupuncture. As the energy points are stimulated, the body is brought back into a place of balance and health.
