Click on the television news broadcasts concerning the ml830 cold laser to the right of this message. Below is how and why it works
We use the ML830 cold laser. This revolutionary new treatment utilizes photons of light to augment the body's natural healing abilities. The laser is different from what most of us picture as a laser. It falls under the category of a "low level laser" and emits non-visible light that has no heating or cutting properties. Treatment is completely painless and provides true healing power. All light has some penetration properties but most wavelengths of light are absorbed by the outer layers of skin, creating heat and often damaging tissue (much like a bad sunburn). The ML830 Laser emits light at a wavelength of 830 nanometers, which is unique in allowing deep penetration without a thermal or heating effect. In fact, Microlight Corporation, the manufacturer, patented this particular wavelength because it provides the deepest penetration among all low level lasers.
The ml830 cold laser unit was the first to receive FDA approval after extensive research at Baylor University and clinical trials at GM auto plants. The approval was for therapeutic treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with practical applications for other extremities and various soft tissue irritations. Our patients have found great relief for shoulder and knee pain as well as relief for plantar fascitis, gout and other painful joints. Check out these televison news broadcasts describing the ml830 cold laser and call us at 770-491-3639 to schedule your initial evaluation. Insurance does not cover the cost of cold laser treatment but our affordable fees allow you to hopefully experience some positive results. Fee for the evaluation is $35 and each session (which is one anatomical area only) is $20. We recommend six session over a week or week and a half and prepaying for ten sessions allows you twelve. As with all healthcare, there is no guarantee of results but this therapy may be what you have been waiting for. We recommend chiropractic care in conjunction with cold laser but is not required.
How It Works:
Treatment with the ML830 Laser is painless and treatment typically lasts less than 10 minutes depending on areas treated. The laser emits non-visible light at a wavelength of 830 nanometers. These photons of light are capable of stimulating cells up to 5 centimeters below the surface of the skin, making it the deepest penetrating modality currently available. Research has shown that these photons are specific in stimulating only tissues that have been damaged, leaving normal tissue unaffected. Changes begin at the cellular level as the light stimulates the mitochondria (the power source of our cells) of damaged cells resulting in a cascade of cellular responses. This "photobiostimulation" energizes cells and accelerates the body's normal healing process. The inflammatory process is accelerated allowing for rapid pain reduction and faster repair of healing tissue.
In addition to speeding the rate of healing, the ML830 also augments the strength of the tissue once it is healed. The ML830 Laser is unique in that it creates true healing rather than masks pain as in the case of ice and heat. Because of this, great interest has been generated in high-level professional athletics and has fostered heavy utilization of the Laser in such arenas.
Common Conditions Treated by the ML830 Laser:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Arthritis Bursitis Tendonitis
Trigger Finger Fibromyalgia
Sprains and Strains Heel Spurs Plantar Fascitis TMJ
How long before benefits are realized?
Following a laser therapy session, approximately 75-80% of patients can notice an immediate improvement in their condition. The more chronic and severe the condition, the longer it takes to respond. The majority of conditions will take from 4-5 or 10-18 treatments.
