Therapeutic Laser(Commonly Known as
Low-Level Light Therapy,LLLT or Cold Laser)
Why Use A Therapeutic Laser?
Low-level laser therapy, provides patients with a safe, effective and painless therapy that uses the body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity and promote cell regeneration.
The laser supplies energy to the body in the form of billions of photons of light. The body absorbs this laser light on a cellular level and transforms it into chemical energy which the body then uses to commence and enhance its own tissue repairs. The biostimulating effects of laser therapy causes a decrease in inflammation and pain and an increase in tissue regeneration and healing .
What Does The Healing?
The dual wavelength super pulsing technology penetrates light energy up to 4” into tissue activating all three known healing cellular pathways:
1) Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Pathway which accelerates healing
2) Nitric Oxide (NO) Pathway which reduces inflammation
3) Lipid Absorption Pathway which decreases pain
When Should The Laser Be Used?
Laser is effective for treatment of acute and chronic pain conditions and inflammation, addictions and cosmetic revitalization, generally improving cellular function and health.
Has It Been Researched And Found Effective?
There have been over 3,000 clinical studies worldwide that have studied and proven the success of therapeutic lasers in the healing of neuromusculoskeletal conditions.
Frequently Asked Questions Of Laser Therapy
Do Lasers Burn?
No. There are two general types of therapeutic lasers: heat generating lasers which cut through tissue and damage tissue, and cold lasers such as the one used in our clinic which stimulates tissue repair, reduces inflammation and eliminates pain.
Is The Cold Laser Harmful?
No. The LLLT is safe, effective and painless, with results that are often immediate with no side effects. Efficacy rates in excess of 90% are routinely achieved.
How Does The Laser Work?
When laser light interacts with tissue it causes certain photochemical reactions to occur which stimulate natural biological healing processes, thus transforming light energy into healing chemical energy
How Long Does The Laser Therapy Take?
Treatment time will vary from as little as 2 minutes to as long as 20 minutes per session. The total number of treatment sessions required varies between 5 to 25 depending on your body’s natural healing rate and the severity of your condition.
