The Vectra Genisys Laser Therapy System

What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold laser therapy is a relatively new technology (about 30 years old).  The first cold laser was FDA cleared in 2001. Cold lasers are sometimes called Low Level Lasers (LLL) or soft lasers.  The cold laser produces an impulse of light at a specific wavelength (usually 600 to 980nm) that minimizes reflection and scattering but maximizes absorption of the energy (in photons) at a desired depth. 

Cold laser therapy offers a non-intrusive option to acupuncture and surgery. It also provides a non-addicting treatment that eliminates the complications of long-term drug treatment programs.

Healing with the Vectra Genisys Cold Laser:

We chose the Vectra Genisys cold laser because it works synergistically with other modalities like chiropractic and acupuncture.

The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from red and infrared laser radiation--called photons-- to damaged cells. It is the consensus of experts is that photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP. This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state. Some conditions like joint pain require a deep penetration (4-5 inches) that can only be achieved using a powerful laser emitter.

Cold lasers are FDA cleared and used for:

  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strain
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Back pain
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia

Benefit of Cold Lasers:

  • Easy to apply
  • Extremely safe
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-invasive
  • No side effects or pain
  • Cost effective for both the practitioner and patient
  • Highly effective in treating ailments (more than 90% efficacy)
  • Superior alternative to analgesics, NSAID's and other medications
  • Reduces the need for surgery

Over 4,000 studies have been conducted in recent years to validate the effectiveness of cold laser therapy. Cold laser treatment systems may be cleared by the FDA.*Lasers can be dangerous and protective eyewear is required.
