Low-Level Laser Therapy

This is the most exciting new technology that I have ever introduce to the office and patient care.  Low level laser therapy is the application of laser light over injuries and lesions to stimulate healing within those tissues.  Lasers are best known for their ability to cut, but do not confuse Low Level Lasers with cutting or high powered lasers.  Low level lasers, under various names such as, cold laser, soft laser, bio-stimulating laser, photon stimulation diodes and many others, have been used for over thirty years in many countries as therapeutic energy to bring about favorable biological effects in both animals and humans.
Low Level Laser Therapy is Safe!

            There are over 2000 studies worldwide that show LLLT is totally safe.  The low level laser that I utilize is approved by the FDA as a class I non-significant risk device.  Laser experts Jan Turner and Lars Hode state: “ We must first understand that the radiation that we are dealing with here is visible light or infrared radiation and nothing more.  The purity of light does not in itself entail any risk ….  Low level laser therapy cannot cause cancer.  No mutational effects have been observed from light within the red or infrared range in doses used within laser therapy.”  The bottom line is that there are no side effects. 

Are you ready for the laundry list of conditions low level laser therapy can treat?

            Heals bedsores, burns, and ulcerations.  Influences the proliferation of collagen, elastic fibers, and fibroblasts.  Helps in the regeneration of damaged or dysfunctional lymphatic, muscular, and cartilage tissues.  Decreases post surgical healing time.  Counteracts the symptoms of neurological disabilities and neuropathy.  Brings about symptomatic relief from degenerative difficulties such as peripheral nerve disease and spinal cord injuries.  Reduces pain and inflammation associated with sports injuries and other traumas.  Reduces pain associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout.  Helpful with ear, nose, and throat problems.  Helps bacterial infection, prostate problems, gynecological problems, gastrointestinal disease, cancer, and is used to stimulate acupuncture points.  Carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder injuries, fibromyalgia, wound healing, bone healing, burns, tendonitis. ligament injury, bone healing, swelling and inflammation.
How does low level laser therapy work?

The laser is a bio-stimulator.  Bio-stimulation is similar to a chiropractic adjustment, taking a daily dose of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other types of dietary supplements; it enhances the body’s inherent mechanism to repair itself, fend off harmful organisms, and maintain healthy metabolism.

The studies show the following affects:
  • Relieve pain – by causing the release of pain relieving endorphins.
  • Increase cellular energy – by stimulating the production of ATP, the molecule that is the cell’s energy source.
  • Healing – by stimulating the production of two major healing enzymes.
  • Decrease inflammation by up to 75%.
  • Speeds bone repair – by triggering the production of bone building osteoblasts.
  • Speeding connective tissue repair – by triggering the production of fibroblasts.
  • Relaxes muscles and stops spasms.
  • Decreases swelling – by stimulating lymphatic drainage.
  • Enhancing the immune system – by increasing the killer cells by 400% to 900%.
  • Re-energizing cell membranes to allow nutrients to cross cell walls – nutrients will not cross an injured of sick cell wall.
  • DNA repair – there is clinical evidence that lasers actually activate enzymes that repair damaged DNA.
  • The bottom line scientific fact is: Osmosis (transfer) of essential nutrients cannot occur across the cellular membrane of a de-polarized (sick) cell.  Consequently, delayed healing, chronic disease, scars, fatigue, and accelerated aging is observed.  LLLT re-energizes (re-polarizes) injured cell membranes and increases the mitochondrial (energy producer of the cell) energy by 150%, which speeds and improves the healing process.
