What Is Laser Light Therapy ?
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.
