LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY

WHAT IS LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY?

Low level laser therapy is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, and pathologies. Laser therapy can be used any time a patient requests, needs a drug-less procedure for the control of pain, or when the acceleration of healing from injuries is desired. Laser therapy can heal wounds and fractures up to 60% faster and also reduces the costs of many conditions. There are many benefits of low level laser therapy for patients, including: 

  • Acute and chronic pain relief
  • Increases speed, quality, and tensile strength of tissue repair 
  • Increases blood supply
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Stimulates nerve function
  • Develops collagen and muscle tissue 
  • Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue
  • Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation 
  • Reduces inflammation 

HOW DOES LASER LIGHT HEAL?

Low level lasers supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skin's layers at all wavelengths in the visible range. When low level laser light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood, resulting in anti-inflammatory and immunostimulate effects. There is much empirical evidence regarding the positive effects (supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell) of light transmission to the blood.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A LASER THERAPY TREATMENT SESSION

Laser therapy is a passive form of treatment. There are no pulsating shocks felt; the most noticeable sensation is the touch of the probe head of the laser as it comes in contact with the skin. Patients may feel a slight feeling of warmth. The treatment may last from 2 to 20 minutes, depending on the patient's condition or the physician's treatment plan for the patient. Generally, the moer chronic or severe the condition, the longer the treatment takes to respond. Following a laser therapy session, approximately 75-80% of patients being treated can notice an immediate improvement in their condition.
