If you are experiencing any of the following ailments, Low Level Laser Therapy may be the solution you’ve been dreaming of to help you reduce your pain levels:
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has showcased the ability to drastically speed up and improve the body’s natural defense and repair mechanisms when presented with assorted injuries, inflammation, and certain disease processes. LLLT is proven in providing relief from pain, limiting injury damage, loss of function, and in helping promote a speedier repair of damaged tissues, creating stronger tissue structures.
This is achieved through the process of photo-stimulation of certain wavelengths affecting the light reactive biological cell receptors found in the body, referred to as chromophores.
This photo-stimulation modifies the effects of distressed tissue and minimizes the overall duration of inflammation, while improving your body’s specific repair and healing mechanisms. This will invariably reduce pain and spams, and increases the natural range of motion and flexibility of the injured area(s).
Over 30 years of scientific study and clinical research has presented our physicians with in depth information on the reaction of cell structures to laser light. It has also detailed for us which wavelengths penetrate deepest and what energy levels have desirable effects on biological processes. We need to grasp the relationship between the depth (from the skin surface) of the target tissue and the ability of the therapeutic laser light to penetrate that tissue.
The laser light distributes in the tissue in the shape of a ball or an egg. This is dependent on the light’s wavelength. Short wavelengths provide a smaller and ball-shaped distribution, while longer wavelengths provide a more egg-shaped distribution. The shorter 632nm visible red wavelength is more readily absorbed by blood and skin surface components, which limits its tissue penetration.
The longer 830nm invisible infrared wavelength is not as easily absorbed, therefore it has much greater depth of penetration. A greater amount of photons are delivered to the target tissue with the 830nm wavelength.
There is now ample clinical evidence that in contrast to other wavelengths, the 830nm laser light produces specific beneficial biological reactions that are not produced by other wavelengths. This unique ability to stimulate greater response is the key to 830nm laser therapy.
