Benefits of treatments

Cold Laser for Healing and Pain Relief

There is substantial clinical evidence published in peer-reviewed medical journals that laser therapy (LLLT) is able to stimulate repair of tissue, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain in musculoskeletal disorders. The three main areas with this evidence are:

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Joint conditions
  • Back and neck pain

Other applications, such as shingles and post-operative pain, also respond well to treatment.

What Is It?

PBM therapy works at a cellular level, repairing and improving cell function and can often get to the source of a problem rather then treating the symptom. Chronic degenerative changes mostly cannot be ‘healed’ but they can be managed. PBM Therapy is a safe and effective way to manage pain and inflammation as the treatment is non-invasive and side effect free. It can help with:

How It Works

Infrared light stimulates or inhibits cellular function according to the intensity and the time applied. Lasers and LEDs produce intense beams of light at specific wavelengths, and when the right wavelength and intensity are achieved and targeted in the correct anatomical location for the right amount of time, you’re able to achieve repair, inflammation reduction, and pain reduction.

One of the primary mechanisms is the effect of light on cytochrome c oxidase and the consequently the unbinding of nitric oxide and release of ATP. This leads to improved cellular function. For anti-inflammatory effects we have found a measurable reduction in PGE2, TNF Alpha, and IL-6 in the synovia surrounding damaged tendons, and for analgesia high intensity lasers over nerve supply inhibit fast axonal flow.

In addition, high intensity single point lasers may release trigger points and treat acupuncture points, which is much more preferable than needle.

Once you understand these mechanisms and their subsequent physiological effects LLLT and cold laser becomes a powerful tool. We hope you use your laser extensively and create great value for patients and your practice.
