Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a form of alternative medicine, LLLT is a non-invasive, painless, no trauma light source treatment. It was developed in 1976 (has been formally accepted by North America, China, India and many other parts of European countries), now low level laser therapy is commonly be called as Cold laser therapy, low-power laser therapy (LPLT), low level laser light therapy, low intensity laser therapy or soft laser. Also, some people referred to as therapeutic laser, biostimulation, or photobiomodulation.
What is Low-level laser therapy?
Low Level Laser Therapy(LLLT) apply 650nm and the 808nm low level laser that improve the tissue repair (includes ligament, nerves, cartilage, and muscle), to accelerate the blood circulation, diminish the inflammation quickly, relieve the pain. Nowadays, LLLT therapy is widely used by acupuncturist, physiotherapist, chiropractor, or patients treat at home.
How does low level laser therapy work?
When we apply the lllt directly over the injured area, the low level wavelength laser has the ability to penetrate the skin layer, especially the 808nm laser has strong penetration, which could act on the tissue 3-7cm under the skin, so we use the laser light energy to stimulate cells to function optimally, when the light-sensitive chromophores and other elements within the cell absorb energy, initiating a series of important photochemical changes such as increased production of ATP, providing the cell with the extra energy needed to accelerate the healing process and positively influence pain.
What is the advantage of low level laser treatment?
- Laser treatment is non-invasive, non-toxic, no known negative side effects
- Compare with the ultrasounds, infrared light, microwave treatment, medicine, the low level laser treatment is more safe and effective.
- Easily applied, no need the technical training
- Highly effective, cure rate > 95%
- After the power is increased, the laser therapeutic is more effective.
What is the benefit of low level laser therapy?
- Anti-inflammatory Action: Laser therapy reduces swelling, leading to decreased pain, less stiffness, and a faster return to normal joint and muscle function. ·
- Rapid Cell Growth: Laser therapy accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.
- Faster Wound Healing: Laser therapy stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue. ·
- Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue, leading to complete healing, with less chance of weakness and re-injury later.
- Increased Vascular Activity: Laser therapy increases blood flow to the injured area. ·
- Stimulated Nerve Function: Laser therapy speeds nerve cell processes which may decrease pain and numbness associated with nerve-related conditions.
How to use the low level laser therapy?
For the acute pain, swelling, wound. just use the low level laser to place directly over the injured area for 15-25 minutes, once per day, continuously use 7 days.
For the chronic condition, such as, RA, varicose vein, herniated disc, cervical spondylosis, ONFH, heel pain, periarthritis of shoulder, constipation, the patellar surface damage, foot collapse, cholecystitis, pelvic inflammation, pelvic accumulates fluid, liver cyst, chronic hepatitis, chronic gastritis, stroke sequela, the leg blood supply insufficiency, lumbar disc, sciatica. We will supply the cold laser protocols for you, which combine laser therapy with acupuncture to help the patients live the better life sooner.
According to our clinical trails during these years, we noticed some patients get immediate results, others require 6-12 treatments before sing a lasting effect. Less severe or acute injuries, swelling, wound will require fewer treatments than chronic or severe conditions, while the patient be treated by our cold laser protocols will get the great effective sooner, for example, our clients adopt our protocols to help a patient with herniated disc, only two treatments, the Pt subsided pain gidof from neck stiffness and patients felt less pain.
