Laser Therapy: More Than the Eye Can See!


Laser therapy aims to bio-stimulate injured and dysfunctional tissues. Clinical studies and trials of laser therapy technology indicate that it has beneficial effects on tissues and cells. Some of these effects include: accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, faster wound healing, reduced fibrous tissue formation, anti-inflammation, anti-pain, improved vascular activity, increased metabolic activity, improved nerve function, and immunoregulation.

Accelerated Tissue Repair And Cell Growth. Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. As a result of exposure to laser light, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles are repaired faster.

Faster Wound Healing. Laser light stimulates fibroblast development (fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, which is predominant in wound healing) in damaged tissue. Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, laser therapy is effective on healing open wounds and burns.

Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation. Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.

Anti-Inflammation. Laser light therapy has an anti-edema effect (reduction of swelling) as it causes vasodilatation (dilation of blood vessels), but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.

Anti-Pain (Analgesic). Laser therapy has a high beneficial effect on nerve cells. It blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less swelling and less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalins from the brain and adrenal gland. These chemicals are hundreds of times more powerful than typical painkillers.

Improved Vascular Activity. Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue; this speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels), which causes temporary vasodilatation, an increase in the diameter of blood vessels.

Increased Metabolic Activity. Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells. Laser therapy also stimulates photoreceptors on the mitochondria of cells and induces them to produce more DNA. Thus these photo-stimulated cells replicate faster.

Improved Nerve Function. Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.

Immunoregulation. Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulation of immunoglobulins and lymphocytes. Laser therapy is absorbed by chromophones (molecule enzymes) that react to laser light. The enzyme flavomono-nucleotide is activated and starts the production of ATP (adenosine-tri-phosphate), which is the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical reactions in the cells.

As a result of these beneficial effects on tissues and cells, laser therapy is a viable option for many conditions. High power laser therapy (HPLT) is dramatically improving the treatment of many conditions previously refractive to traditional care. Using the high power laser therapy device, practitioners are now able to offer their patients a safe, painless, and non-surgical treatment procedure for even the toughest musculoskeletal, orthopedic and neurological maladies.

Applications that a Class IV Therapeutic Laser work on effectively include: Arthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease), Muscle, Ligament and Tendon Injuries, Sports Injuries, Back & Hip Pain, Neck & Shoulder Pain, Foot & Heel Pain, Knee Pain, Sprains and Strains, Ulcerations and Open Wounds, Post Surgical and Soft Tissue Trauma, Back Pain, Neuromuscular Disease, FibromLaser Therapy: More Than the Eye Can See!
