What is Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that stimulates a process known as photobiomodulation, or PBM, by using focused light.
Photons enter the tissue during PBM and interact with the mitochondrial cytochrome c complex.
This contact sets in motion a biological cascade that results in increased cellular metabolism, reduced discomfort, decreased muscular spasm, and enhanced microcirculation to wounded tissue.
This FDA-approved procedure offers patients a non-invasive, non-pharmacological pain management option.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Photobiomodulation (PBM), in which photons enter the tissue and interact with the Cytochrome C complex within mitochondria, is how laser therapy works.
A significant amount of light must reach the target area to achieve the optimum therapeutic results from laser therapy.
Light wavelength, decreasing reflections, avoiding undesired absorption, and power are all factors that help light reach target tissue.
Acute and chronic illnesses, as well as post-activity recuperation, are treated using laser treatment.
It's also used as a supplement to prescription medications, as a means of delaying the need for certain procedures, and as a pre- and post-surgery treatment to reduce pain and swelling.
The use of laser therapy to treat acute diseases has been proven to be successful.
Getting pain under control as soon as possible aids the healing process and, in most cases, leads to better outcomes.
Therapy lasers can be used to help treat persistent pain and increase circulation to injured tissues in chronic illnesses, according to studies.
It has the potential to be a powerful non-pharmaceutical alternative for pain relief without the negative side effects of medicine.
Therapy using LightForce®
Many professional, college, and Olympic sports teams in the United States, as well as many regions of Europe and Asia, use lasers on the sidelines.
Laser therapy has been demonstrated to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness and improve post-activity recovery durations (DOMS).
