Erchonia PL 5000 Low Frequency Cold Laser
Dr. Lisa Orwick of Natural Life Chiropractic announces the introduction to her practice of the Erchonia PL 5000 Low Frequency Cold Laser. The considerable research and investment of time and capital by Dr. Orwick, concerns this cutting edge technology of cellular healing. Chiropractic and nutritional approaches to healing remain well ahead of traditional western medicine’s treatment of symptoms, but Dr. Orwick is confident that she has found a tool, which will allow her to help all patients across the board as well as the unresolvable cases. Lasers are painless, sterile, have no undesirable side effects and are much more affordable that surgery. The new frontiers of Cold Laser treatment will provide as yet unattained results in healing on many levels. After extensive training and study, Dr. Orwick will draw a picture of the future of healing. This article presents a simplified and cursory overview of the quantum physics involved to explain the working of the Cold Laser, an explanation of what it can do for the patient, and finally an estimate of what the cost to you will be.
Light therapy is not a new concept. The sun’s photonic rays cause a seed to sprout through RNA and DNA changes. The sun’s rays are full spectrum light, which means many wavelengths are present (400-
The following are examples of how the Cold Lasers are used:
To accelerate wound and burn healing, at a rate 25-
To treat top athletes in order to return them to competition at a much accelerated pace. If you remember when Lance Armstrong and the US Postal Service team were involved in quite a few bad wrecks, yet they were able to race the next day. According to Jeff Spencer, Armstrong’s chiropractor who treated him with Cold Laser, if an injured athlete can get in for laser treatment within 2-
To rehabilitate severed nerve bundles, at a rate of 300% faster than a control group tested in a University of Health and Sciences, Bethesda, MD., (research study conducted by Anders and Broke). This was after only 14 daily, 90 minutes treatments. It suggests promising results will be found in the future for peripheral nerve damage and possible spinal cord injuries.
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-
To increase the range of motion (ROM), to increase muscle strength, to decrease pain and inflammation and to accelerate overall healing time for a variety of injuries. Chiropractors and Physical Therapist are using the cold laser for whiplash-
The Erchonia PL 5000 is a low frequency laser, with a very specific (630-
Laser therapy is based on Photochemical and Photobiological effects of the cells and tissues. With laser light, certain cell functions are stimulated especially the increase of a cells ATP (energy). This increase in ATP synthesis is associated with increased cell metabolism; increase collagen synthesis, stimulation of DNA formation, improved immune system function and increased new formation of capillaries. The laser also has been shown to increase neurotransmitters (serotonin), to increase enhance tissue regeneration through increasing fibroblasts and keratinocytes, to increase antioxidants and to accelerate bone and scar healing. Accelerated healing, the primary goal for any kind of injury, is hard to demonstrate in one laser session. However, Dr. Orwick will demonstrate the ability to increase your range of motion (ROM) and increase muscle strength by testing you before and after the laser treatment. The significance of this is more than being able to better check your blind spot while driving. By increasing your ROM, you are preserving the function and structure of your cartilage and discs. Movement brings vital nutrients and fluids to cartilage and discs. The less your neck, spine or joints move, the sooner breakdown begins. Joint degeneration, or cartilage starvation, is osteoarthritis, which can cause considerable pain and is progressive in nature. Disc breakdown is degenerative disc disease. This can cause bone spurs pressing on nerves, causing pain, such as sciatica. The muscle strength test is performed in order to test nerve root function, not just muscle performance. Testing the deltoid strength bilaterally, for example, is evaluating the function of the C5 nerve root. Restored muscle strength actually indicates that the nerve root has been reactivated. With a properly functioning nervous system, balanced muscle strength is available to optimally perform three vital functions. To move the body and joints, to stabilize joints, and to inhibit pain at the spinal cord level. Preliminary results indicate that 98% of Dr. Orwick’s patients experience a noticeable increase in both ROM and muscle strength.
Most protocols are based upon the physiology of certain cell types. For example, skin cells take approximately 28-
The laser stand provided is set up on the brain and cervical, thoracic or lumbar vertebrae, while the other laser head is used by the patient to treat the area of involvement. The patients are given very specific instructions, including the proper frequencies for your condition, the specific areas to laser, how often and how long to treat.
Dr. Orwick looks forward to the future of healing with this new technology and appreciates your taking the time to read this article. If you would like to read more about the laser, she recommends the books:
