Decompression Techniques with DRX9000


Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), or photobiomodulation, utilizes low-intensity light to stimulate cellular changes, aiding tissue repair and reducing inflammation. In addition to being used in hair regrowth treatment for hereditary hair loss, LLLT is also used for various medical fields like physical therapy, sports medicine, and chiropractic care. Moreover, LLLT enhances cellular energy production within mitochondria. Generally, this promotes healing of muscles, ligaments, nerves, bones, joints, and soft tissue. Known as "cold" laser therapy, it generates no heat, thereby ensuring a pain-free experience while effectively promoting healing of muscles, ligaments, nerves, bones, joints, and soft tissue.

Inflammation Reduction

LLLT has been shown to modulate the inflammatory response, leading to a reduction in inflammation associated with conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, and other inflammatory disorders. Furthermore, in addition to targeting inflammatory mediators and promoting the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines, LLLT also helps alleviate pain and swelling, thereby improving joint function and mobility. Overall, this anti-inflammatory effect makes LLLT a promising treatment option for individuals seeking relief from chronic inflammatory conditions. As a result, it offers a non-pharmacological approach to pain management and an improved quality of life.

Tissue Repair

LLLT enhances cellular energy production within mitochondria, the powerhouses of cells, thereby leading to improved tissue repair and regeneration. Moreover, in addition to increasing ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production, LLLT also accelerates the healing process of muscles, ligaments, nerves, bones, joints, and soft tissue injuries. Consequently, this therapeutic effect makes LLLT a valuable adjunctive treatment in various medical fields, including physical therapy, sports medicine, and chiropractic care. Ultimately, it aids in the recovery from injuries, reduces downtime, and promotes overall tissue health.

Pain Reduction

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) using Erchonia lasers alleviates pain through several mechanisms: enhancing cellular metabolism, reducing inflammation, releasing endorphins, improving blood circulation, desensitizing nerve fibers, and promoting tissue repair. Additionally, this holistic approach provides a non-invasive, drug-free solution for different pain conditions. Nevertheless, further research is needed to optimize its effectiveness.


At The Head & Spine Pain Center, we utilize Erchonia lasers, which operate with low-level lasers in the visible light spectrum. Furthermore, these lasers trigger essential chemical reactions by exciting electrons to higher energy levels. Importantly, this process, integral to the electron transport chain (ETC), generates ATP – the body's main energy source. Additionally, in addition to effectively alleviating pain, we are promoting healing, ensuring our patients' well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does LLLT really work for my condition?

Research suggests that LLLT can be effective for various conditions, including pain management, tissue repair, and inflammation reduction. However, individual responses may vary.

Are there any potential side effects or risks associated with LLLT?

LLLT is generally considered safe with minimal side effects, such as mild warmth or tingling sensation at the treatment site. In addition to it being non-invasive, it also does not typically cause adverse effects when performed by a qualified practitioner.

How many sessions of LLLT will I need before experiencing results?

The number of sessions required depends on the condition being treated, its severity, and individual response to treatment. Typically, a series of sessions spaced over several weeks is recommended for optimal results.

Are there any contraindications or conditions that make me unsuitable for LLLT?

Some contraindications to LLLT include pregnancy, active cancer, epilepsy, and use of photosensitizing medications. Nonetheless, your healthcare provider will assess your suitability for LLLT based on your medical history.

Can LLLT be used in conjunction with other treatments I'm currently undergoing?

LLLT is often used as a complementary therapy alongside other treatments such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, or medication. Nonetheless, your healthcare provider can advise on the compatibility of LLLT with your current treatment plan.

How long do the effects of LLLT typically last, and will I need maintenance sessions?

The duration of LLLT effects varies depending on the individual, the condition treated, and other factors. Generally, maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the benefits of LLLT over time, particularly for chronic conditions. Nonetheless, your healthcare provider can provide guidance on the frequency of maintenance sessions.
