Researchers within the sports medicine community are continually working to improve upon the ways we treat pain, striving toward quicker, more successful and less-invasive solutions that keep athletes in the game and weekend warriors from being stuck on the couch with chronic pain.
Erchonia Medical is on the forefront of this research, creating a low-level laser treatment used by the trained therapists at SOL. Used by Lance Armstrong’s 2003 USPS cycling team for rapid relief and recovery during the Tour de France, Erchnia laser treatments work quickly, are non-invasive and results in no known side-effects. Yet, this cutting-edge therapy is proven helpful in treating chronic pain in the neck, shoulder and knees, as well as over-use injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. At a cellular level, low-level laser therapy decreases pain and inflammation, which results in better range of motion.
