Cold Laser Therapy

I have been using the ML830 cold laser for low level light therapy treatments as part of my clinical practice for almost two years.  The results are nothing short of remarkable. It works on everything from acute muscle pulls, migraines/headaches, bad necks, long-standing arthritis, trigger points, back pain, TMJ disorder, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, pelvic pain and tendon issues such as golfers elbow, plantar fascitis, achilles tendonitis, carpel tunnel syndrome, chronic back pain, sciatica and a lot more.

I now own the ML830 Smart Laser. The ML830 produces infrared (invisible) laser light at the 830nm (nanometer) wavelength and is classified by the FDA as a Class IIIB medical device. It has the deepest penetration and ABSORBTION of any cold laser on the market.  ABSORPTION is the key!!

I rent units to patients after instructing how to use safely. No time to come in for weekly sessions? Use it at home! Free demo at my office.

Most importantly it has allowed me to work with patients with long-standing pain such as myofascial pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic regional pain syndrome and enigmatic (unknown cause) pain. These conditions often involve very sensitive central and peripheral nervous systems, making manual therapy and even stretching challenging due to patient sensitivity to moderate/deep touch and traditional physical and massage therapy. The cold laser allows therapy to be done without aggravating patients whose nervous systems are already overly stimulated,  allowing soft tissue and nervous system healing to begin.

To learn more, Google “google scholar”, then query “cold laser and myofascial pain” or and “cold laser and dry needling.” Read how well cold laser therapy  treats  pain and also beats dry needling, a trendy and popular method of treating myofascial pain. It’s because the laser is non-invasive. No need to stick needles into hypersensitive tissue and further aggravate a hyper-vigiligant central nervous system, common in patients with chronic pain.

Big Bonus! The Microlight 830 Smart Laser allows me to treat and deactivate myofascial trigger points faster, easier and with less pain than just with my hands alone. Even in patients with long standing chronic pain. Research has been coming out of the N.I.H. proving that trigger points maybe responsible for some instances of central sensitization and other chronic pain mechanisms in patients with chronic pain.

Research specific to the ML830 http://ml830clearance.com/studies

There are 30+ years of clinical studies proving that the 830nm range is the optimal wavelength. It also beat the placebo group (significantly) on a double-blind controlled study for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome:

HOW DOES THE ML830® WORK?

ML830® Laser is a non-thermal laser capable of deeply penetrating into tissue. Once delivered, the light energy promotes the process of photobiostimulation. In human tissue, the resulting photochemical reaction produces an increase in the cellular metabolism rate that expedites cell repair and the stimulation of the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems. The net result, observed in clinical trials to date, is the apparent reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time.

Low Level Laser Therapy with the ML830 also improves collagen and muscle tissue development, and helps generate new healthy cells and tissue. Clinical studies to date have shown a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall faster healing time. Amazingly, the ML830 promotes true healing instead of masking pain, as in the case of ice, heat, medication, and electrical stimulation.

Summary: 

  1. In my experience the ML830 smart laser is a very effective way to work with chronic pain patients and successfully progress towards their healing goals.
  2. The ML830  has allowed me to treat myofascial pain, musculoskeletal pain and sports and work injuries faster and more effectively than just with my functional assessment skills and manual and movement therapies.
