Lasers for Chronic Pain - The Erchonia laser

In 2001, the U.S. Food and Drug administration approved the application of the Erchonia laser for patients suffering for Chronic Pain. According to the makers of the device, the Erchonia laser achieves it results by stimulating the body's cells to regenerate.

This is the first I've hear of the Erchonia laser. But, based on the manufacturer's statements, it seems to make sense. In recent years, links have been drawn between chronic pain and fibromyalgia and the body's failure to achieve enough delta stage sleep, a level of sleep in which the body regenerates and repairs.

According to Dr. Mitchell Prywes, this type of laser therapy is useful for chronic neck and chronic back pain and procedures can be completed in five or ten minutes, with less pain and better range of motion being the outcome within minutes of the procedure being performed.

I am curious how Erchonia can support their claims when their equipment doesn't have the power or number of diodes that their competitors claim. Do they have more than anecdotal evidence?
