Laser Therapy

What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low Level Laser Therapy is also known as cold laser therapy and is a form of light therapy. This involves the application of low power light (red and near infrared light) to injuries or wounds to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both acute and chronic pain. Low level laser therapy aims to biostimulate. The effects of cold laser therapy are biochemical and not thermal so there is no damage to living tissue. The therapy offers safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions.

How does Low Level Laser Therapy work?

The laser uses a beam of light to stimulate damaged cells to produce more energy, leading to improved cell function. This increase in function has a host of benefits including improved circulation, decreased inflammation, and release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain reliever.

What are general therapeutic biological effects of Low Level Laser Therapy?

  • Increased Cell Growth: Laser photons accelerate cellular reproduction and growth.
  • Increased Metabolic Activity: Photons initiate a higher output of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).
  • Faster Wound Healing: Cold laser photons stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action: Laser photons reduce swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints resulting in enhanced joint mobility.
  • Increased Vascular Activity: Laser photons induce temporary vasodilation that increases blood flow to effected areas.
  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: Laser photons reduce the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.
  • Stimulated Nerve Function: Laser photon exposure speeds the process of nerve cell reconnect ion to bring the numb areas back to life.
  • Pain Reduction: Almost all systems have a mode of operation specifically designed to reduce pain.
