  WHAT IS LASER THERAPY?

Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser or light therapy, is a treatment that utilizes specific types of light to interact with tissue. It is used to eliminate pain and promote healing for a variety of medical conditions.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER THERAPY?

Laser therapy offers patients a safe and effective therapy for a wide range of medical conditions, including soft tissue and sports injuries, arthritic conditions, repetitive stress injuries, wound healing and a variety of general health problems.




Clinical Benefits
  • Eliminates pain
  • Reduces the need for pharmaceuticals
  • Restores normal range of motion and physical function
  • Non-invasive
  • Non-toxic
  • No known adverse effects
  • No drug interactions
  • Often makes surgical interventions unnecessary
  • Provides a treatment alternative for patients that have not responded to conventional therapies
Physiological Effects
  • Increased production and release of:
    • Endorphins – natural analgesics
    • Cortisol – precursor of cortisone
    • Growth hormone – instrumental in tissue repair
    • ATP – improves and regulates cellular metabolism
  • Increased protein synthesis – collagen, DNA, fibroblasts
  • Venous and lymphatic flow facilitated
  • Increased angiogenesis – elevation of oxygen saturation
  • Enhanced immune response, etc.

HOW DOES THE TECHNOLOGY WORK?

The technology utilizes superluminous and laser diodes to irradiate diseased or traumatized tissue with photons. These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cell membrane and intracellular molecules, resulting in the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions, leading to the restoration of normal cell structure and function.

In the short term, the body products and releases beta-endorphins to control the sensation of pain. Plus, cortisol production is increased to combat the stress associated with the trauma or disease process.

Over the long term, ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production is increased resulting in improved cellular metabolism. DNA (deoxyribonucleicacid) production, the protein building block of tissue, is substantially increased. Neurotransmission is facilitated secondary to elevated levels of serotonin and aceytylcholine. Mitochondrial activity is stimulated resulting in cell replication for replacement, regeneration and repair of abnormal cells. And other cellular level changes take place.

The process results in the elimination of symptoms, including pain, and enhances the body’s immune system response, facilitating natural healing.
