Cold Laser -- Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Erchonia Cold Laser
Dr. Roelofs has had hundreds of training hours utilizing the Low Level laser. Training has been provided by several doctors including with Dr. Jeff Spencer, the chiropractor of the US Postal Service and The Discovery Channel Tour de France cycling Teams, Dr. Dan Murphy, Dr. Jerome Reruca, Dr. Trevor Berry, Dr. Robert G. Silverman, and Dr. Kirk Gair.
Dr. Brent Roelofs at Apex Chiropractic Center offers cutting-edge healing technology with the Erchonia PL 5000, PL-Touch, XLR8, and EVRL low-level, non-invasive laser that speeds recovery, reduces pain and accelerates bone and wound healing. The first of its kind to be approved by the FDA, the PL 5000 has a proven track record for healing, recovery and performance, having been used by Jeff Spencer, Sports Chiropractor for Lance Armstrong and the U.S. Postal Team (now Team Discovery) throughout all seven of their Tour de France victories. A completely painless therapy, the low energy laser is applied to the affected body part, which may be sore or stiff. The laser is frequently used to treat burn victims, in which cases it assists with tissue healing and pain management.
The Erchonia Laser is specifically designed to address those descriptions in the information flow, or intelligence, in the body. For example, there could be interference in the flow of intelligence from the brain to points in the body that cause problems like numb hands, a tight lower back and knee pain.
By “resetting” the communications flow, the laser is a viable treatment for problems that range from the acute-like “road rash”, inflamed tendons or household burns-to those that revolve around streamlining body performance.
PL 5000 is a Low Frequency Cold Laser. A treatment whereby a cold laser is utilized to treat chronic and acute pain. Cold laser therapy is used for persons suffering from back and neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, joint pain associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, bursitis, neuropathy, Achilles tendon pain, migraine headaches, sprains and strains, carpal tunnel and other associated pains. Cold laser therapy also treats conditions such as TMJ, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and other inflammatory and scarring conditions.

How does it work?
Photons, which are particles of electromagnetic energy, are emitted from the low power laser. These particles enter the tissues and are absorbed in the mitochondria, which are tiny structures within the substance of each individual cell. The energy is converted to chemical energy within the cell. The permeability of the cell membrane changes which in turn produces various physiological effects. These physiological changes affect a variety of cell types including macrophages, fibroblasts, endothelial cells and mast cells.
Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy increases serotonin levels which allow the body to heal itself. Cold laser therapy is non-thermal and noninvasive. A combination of cold laser and electric stimulation, cold laser therapy is one of the most effective healing therapies in the medical community today.
