Cold or Low Level LASER Therapy Benefits
Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology. … As inflammation is reduced pain subsides very quickly.
10 Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
1. Anti Inflammatory Effect
2. Analgesic Effect
3. Accelerated Tissue Repair & Cell Growth
4. Improved Vascular Activity
5. Increased Metabolic Activity
6. Stimulation of Trigger Points and Acupuncture
7. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation
8. Improved Nerve Function
10. Faster Wound Healing
Laser therapy can help with medical conditions such as
Rotator Cuff Tear
Scapula Humeral Periarthritis
Muscle strains, sprains, and tears
Arthritis and other degenerating joint conditions
Slipped or bulging discs
Injuries to the soft tissues
Pre- and post-surgical pain
Relief of chronic pain
Relief of acute pain, such as an injury or trauma
Strong anti-inflammatory effect
Stimulates healing of damaged tissue
Speeds recovery of the structural integrity of your injured region
Help Improvement Movement and makes daily activities easier
Tendon & Ligament Injuries
Clinical studies and research using laser therapy technology indicate the following beneficial effects of laser therapy on tissues and cells:
Laser therapy has an anti-edemic effect as it causes vasodilation, 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.
Laser therapy has a high beneficial effect on nerve cells which block pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins from the brain and adrenal gland.
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.
Improved Vascular Activity
Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis, 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.
How many treatment are needed to get results?
Results can often be seen ather the first 4 consecutive treatments. Response to treatment depends on your age, the type or injury, Severity and age of injury and medical Condition. Most Conditions have protocols that range from 6 – 10 Treatments. The treatment are cumulative and are delivered 2 – 3 times per week for 2 – 6 weeks depending on medical conditions. Sometimes long term bi- Weekly or monthly ” touch ups” may be required as aging occurs every hour of the day.
