Low Level Laser therapy is a non-surgical, non-drug approach to treating many conditions. Cold lasers emit visible coherent light that is focused on injured areas. Studies show that cold laser therapy increases energy production at the cellular level. This energy increases microcirculation which reduces inflammation and enhances tissue healing within the injured areas.
Healing is a cellular process and light energy initiates a cascade of reactions, from the cell membrane to the cytoplasm, to the nucleus and DNA. There are many biological processes that take place in tissues that have been shown to respond to the cold laser therapy. The overall effects of the treatment site are decreased pain and decreased inflammation, as well as increased range of motion
Because the cold laser emits a low level of power output and its beam penetration is deep, it has been proven to significantly accelerate and enhance the bodies natural defence and ability to repair itself when injured. Initially, swollen tissue prevents movement of damage tissue.
When the body has an injury the cells are damaged, they do not function within their normal parameters. When a cold laser is applied to the injured area, it sends a stimulated light of a special wavelength deep into the affected area. The Laser penetrates at least 2-4 inches deep and signals your damaged cells to start producing more energy. This produces a flow of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation and thereby reducing or eliminating your pain. Treatments take only a few minutes; however the therapeutic effect will continue to work for you long after you leave the office.
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling.
During the 30 years of healthcare use provided all over the world, very few side effects have been reported. If a patient is allergic to light then they may get a rash or blister for a few days. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
The typical treatment duration is 5-15 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated and the severity.
Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2-3 times a week tapering off to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 1-6 treatment may suffice. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10-15 (or more) treatments.
You may feel improvement in your condition ( usually pain reduction ) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3-4 sessions.
