Eliminate Heel Pain, Low Back Pain, Neck & Shoulder Pain!!
Now you can relieve the pain and inflammation of the heel associated with plantar fasciitis. Our FDA market cleared laser has been proven in clinical tests to effectively treat this painful condition. The regenerative powers of this low-level laser technology can reduce inflammation and eliminate pain in the plantar fascia in only a matter of weeks and return your patients to an active life once again.
Unlike other lasers on the market, the FX 635 is proven to promote cellular regeneration through painless bio-stimulation. It provides patients experiencing chronic heel pain with a non-invasive, efficacious solution to quickly improve their walking comfort and quality of life without surgery. While other lasers may claim to treat this problem, only the FX 635 has been market cleared by the FDA to treat plantar fasciitis.
Neck & Shoulder Pain
A variety of low-level lasers are proven to be effective in reducing and eliminating acute and chronic pain in the neck & shoulders. Many patients find that this solution is a much more effective and immediate alternative to traditional pain medications. Combined with forms of chiropractic and therapy, the Erchonia lasers can help patients lead a normal, active, and healthy life without debilitating pain.
Dr. Ferguson says...
“Plantar fasciitis can be extremely painful and persistent. Erchonia’s FX 635 laser is ideal for chronic heel pain sufferers because it offers effective, pain-free treatment—without side effects. In just three weeks with two treatments per week, patients can have significant and lasting relief from plantar fasciitis.”
What can laser help?
Here are just a few of the things where laser can help:
Low Back Pain
Neck and Shoulder Pain
What about the brain?
Low-level lasers have been shown to have a positive impact on many aspects involving brain health.
My personal interest in laser for the brain started after my sister suffered strokes. Shortly thereafter, the news was flooded with the cases of CTE (chronic traumatic encephalitis) caused by repeated concussions. I, myself, played soccer through college and graduate school and suffered numerous concussions!
The more I read, the more I realized that this treatment needed to be a part of my health regimen and my patient's."

Erchonia Pain Market Clearances
Erchonia complies with the highest clinical testing. All Erchonia level (1) clinical trials have gone through the FDA pre-IDE process, IRB approval, and are based on pilot research to ensure customers that the laser they are purchasing has been proven safe and effective by the FDA. 90% of all medical devices are substantially equivalent with no clinical research, of the 10% that are, only few submit blinded and controlled studies.

How is Cold Laser different from LED light? Class 4 lasers? Infrared light?
What is cold laser?
The process of low-level laser therapy is based on a photochemical reaction in which discrete bundles of energy called photons are absorbed within the visible light spectrum of 380–700nm. The photon induced chemistry ultimately gives rise to the observable effect at the biological level. In order to achieve maximum photobiological effects, Erchonia adheres to the following delivery fundamentals: Laser light has an output under 500mw. It is a non-thermal process for adjunctive use in pain therapy. “LLLT delivered at low doses tends to work better than the same wavelength delivered at high levels, which illustrates the basic concept of biphasic dose response or hormesis” (Calabrese 2001b) Fundamentals of Photochemistry
What are LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes)?
LEDs cannot achieve the same narrow band of wavelength, instead LEDs produce light that is disorganized or incoherent. Laser light is dramatically more effective in producing photochemical effects than LED. This is evident in over a dozen, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trials using Erchonia lasers where test subjects established both statistical significance and clinically meaningful results over the placebo group which received LED treatment.
What is a Class 4 laser?
Devices with a laser output above 500mw are not LLLT (Low-Level Laser Therapy). Instead, they are classified as High Intensity Laser (HIL) or Class 4 Lasers. These devices are intended to “provide topical heating for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature for temporary relief of muscle and joint pain and stiffness, arthritis pain, or muscle spasm, the temporary increase in local blood circulation and/or promoting relaxation of muscle”.
What is Infrared light?
Another type of electromagnetic radiation is infrared (IR) which includes wavelengths higher than 780nm. The infrared light spectrum exhibits strong absorption from vibrations of the water molecule. The result of infrared absorption is heating of the tissue since it increases molecular vibrational activity. Simply, while visible light can produce photochemical effects, infrared only produces molecular rotations and vibrations
