Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) says that Cold LASER Therapy is a pain-free, non-surgical and drug-free option to find pain relief.

Dr. Rodriguez Munnet, is one of the pioneers in using the low level LASER technique to safely increase cellular metabolism and healing in patients suffering from pain-related disorders. He is one of a limited number of doctors around the nation using this LASER under an FDA-approved protocol.

The cold LASER therapy is completely painless and totally non-invasive.

What is LLLT?

LLLT (Low level LASER therapy) is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions and pathologies. Cold LASER therapy can be used any time a patient requests or needs a drug-less procedure for the control of pain, when conventional therapies have been ineffective, or when the acceleration of healing from injuries is desired.

For most people, LASER therapy is quite passive. There are no pulsating shocks felt, as in forms of electronic stimulation, nor heat used as with ultrasounds.

Some patients (3-5% of those undergoing light therapy) have reported a slight tingling or tapping in a nerve or along a nerve pathway. Some have noted that they are able to sense a slight feeling of warmth. But for the most part, the treatment, which may last from 15 to 20 minutes, is not noticed at all.

Following (and even during) a cold LASER therapy session, approximately 75-80% of patients being treated can notice an immediate improvement in their condition. This will depend primarily on the type of condition and the length of time the condition has been present.

Generally, the more chronic or severe the condition, the longer it takes to respond. The majority of conditions treated will take anywhere from 6-12 treatments. Once again, the number of treatments depends upon the severity of the condition and its duration.

Conditions that may respond to cold LASER therapy include:

  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

  • Back Pain

  • Disc Injuries

  • Neck Pain

  • Post-surgery healing

How Does Cold LASER Light Heal?

Healing with the use of light is not new. Light therapy was reported to be effective for many conditions by Hippocrates. With the development of LASERs and its special properties, using light as a treatment has gained more popularity. This is because we can now use specific wavelengths of light and give accurately measured doses of energy directly to the appropriate treatment site, which was not possible with other light sources.

Low level LASERs supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skin's layers (the dermis, epidermis and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin) at all wavelengths in the visible range. However, light waves in the near infrared ranges penetrate the deepest of all light waves in the visible spectrum. When low level LASER light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effects throughout the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.

If after looking at these specific list(s), you still have any questions or concerns, or still don’t have an answer as to whether a particular situation you are having can be helped by the LASER or any other procedure in this office please ask us.

Happy Clients

Within two weeks, I had already started seeing changes. I had more energy and I had even lost 5 lbs without diet or exercise (I believe this was from toxic bloat)! Gaining confidence, I had started to follow Dr. Bert’s advice to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet. Slowly my cough was subsiding and within four months it was completely gone! For years I have had to live with this debilitating cough that Dr. Bert was able to rid in mere months!
 
Today I continue to see Dr. Bert for maintenance, immune system strengthening, treating infections, and even weight loss. I am so glad I decided to give herbal medication a try, and I am extremely thankful for Dr. Bert for giving me my life back! For all those that are dealing with an ailment, explore the possibility of herbals! Dr. Bert is amazing; I just wish I found him sooner!

I've only been to two visits, but thus far, the colon pain has improved.  I'm doing his recommended cranberry drink detox and its helping me so very much thus far. As a healer myself, I believe in a healthy living lifestyle, so his care is reinforcing.

I've already recommended him to lots of my patients, family and friends.  I'm also bringing my mother in a week, so she can benefit from his type of treatment.  

I love the care and respect I received from both Dr. Bert and Annie at Advance Health and Wellness Solutions.  They make a great team!

My first visit with you could not have been more different.  “Would I ever be able to jog again?”  I asked.  “I don’t see why not,” you replied.  You talked to me about nutrition, and introduced me to some wonderful foods such as Greek yogurt and pure cranberry juice, which are now part of my regular diet.

During my visits to your office, you explained each step in my treatment plan, making me feel like we were partners in my healing. When my tight schedule dictated that I bring my children to your office during my treatment sessions, you welcomed them with warmth and made them feel at home.

I write this letter strong of body and filled with gratitude.  I appreciated your holistic approach to healing me, and I have sung your praises to many of my friends and family.  Please feel free to share my letter with any of your prospective patients because I want them to know that I am one very satisfied customer of Advance Health and Wellness Solutions.
