What Is Laser Light Ther­apy ?

Montreal Times - - News - By Jes­sica Ro­mano Mon­treal Times

Heal­ing with the use of light is not a new con­cept. Light ther­apy was re­ported to be ef­fec­tive for many con­di­tions by Hip­pocrates. To­day with the devel­op­ment of laser and its spe­cial prop­er­ties, us­ing light as a heal­ing treat­ment has gained pop­u­lar­ity es­pe­cially among many ath­letes world­wide. Be­cause we can now use spe­cific wave­lengths of light and give ac­cu­rately mea­sured doses of en­ergy di­rectly to the ap­pro­pri­ate treat­ment site it pro­vides faster re­cov­ery from in­juries.

Laser ther­apy has been suc­cess­fully used around the world for over 25 years, with ho re­ported long-term or ir­re­versible side ef­fects.

Low level lasers sup­ply en­ergy in the form of non­ther­mal pho­tons of light that is trans­mit­ted through the skin's lay­ers, the epi­der­mis and the sub­cu­ta­neous tis­sue un­der the skin, de­liv­er­ing all wave­lengths in the vis­i­ble range. How­ever light waves in the near in­frared ranges pen­e­trate the deep­est of all light waves in the vis­i­ble spec­trum.When the low level light is ap­plied into the site it op­ti­mizes the nat­u­ral im­mune re­sponses of the body. It is a sci­en­tific fact that light trans­mit­ted to the blood in this way has pos­i­tive ef­fects through­out the whole body, sup­ply­ing vi­tal oxy­gen, en­ergy and col­la­gen.

Laser light ther­apy is quite pas­sive, the most no­table sen­sa­tion is the touch of the probe of the laser, as it comes into con­tact with the skin. peo­ple have re­ported a slight tin­gling along a nerve path­way. Some have noted that they are able to sense a slight feel­ing of warmth. Fol­low­ing a laser ther­apy ses­sion over 80% can no­tice an im­me­di­ate im­prove­ment and feel bet­ter. Gen­er­ally the more chronic or se­vere the con­di­tion , the longer it takes to re­spond.The ma­jor­ity of con­di­tions can take any­where from 4 to 10 treat­ments.

Ac­cord­ing to pub­lished med­i­cal re­ports, many acute and chronic con­di­tions may be im­proved or elim­i­nated with

Low Level Light Ther­apy ( LLLT ).

Here are some of the con­di­tions LLT can help to im­prove :

• Acupunc­ture Points - Neu­ral­gia

• Back Pain - Knee PainNeck Pain - Joint Pain

Arthri­tis • Bur­si­tis - Carpal Tun­nel Syn­drome - Ten­nis El­bow • Her­ni­ated/Bulging Discs Mi­graine Headaches • Trig­ger Points - Sprains & Strains - Ten­donitis • Fi­bromyal­gia - TMJ Pain Nerve Pain

• Plan­tar Fasci­itis - Mus­cle Pains & Spasms

The ben­e­fits of laser light ther­apy are nu­mer­ous and the ef­fect varies ac­cord­ing to the per­son and type of con­di­tion. LLLT re­lieves acute and chronic pains, it in­crease the speed and qual­ity of tis­sue re­pair by in­creas­ing blood sup­ply. It stim­u­lates the Im­mune and nerve func­tion, pro­motes faster wound heal­ing and re­duces in­flam­ma­tion. Sci­en­tific re­search and stud­ies have shown it to be ef­fec­tive and safe and has FDA ap­proval.
