The primary goal of laser therapy is to stimulate chronically dormant/sick/injured cells to perform natural functions at an enhanced rate, creating a more favorable environment for rapid and long-term healing and pain relief. The high power therapy laser accelerates cellular respiration and targets hemoglobin and cytochrome c oxidase within the mitochondrial portion of the cell. In sharp contrast to ‘cold Iasers’ which provide no feeling or sensation, and are far too weak to provoke a biological response in deep tissue, high power laser therapy provides a warm, healing sensation, and floods the tissue with healing energy.
Unlike many pharmacological treatments that mask pain or only address the symptoms of disease, Laser Therapy treats the underlying condition or pathology to promote pain relief and healing. This means that the treatments are effective and the benefits of Laser Therapy are long-lasting.
Laser therapy has an anti-edemic effect as it causes vasodilation, and enhances performance of the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
Laser therapy has a highly beneficial effect on nerve cells, blocking pain signals transmitted to the brain, decreasing nerve sensitivity, and generating regrowth of surrounding myelin tissue. In addition, there is less edema and pain due to decreased local inflammation.
Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
A powerful flow of photonic light energy from the laser penetrates deeply into tissue and accelerates cellular reproduction and growth. High power laser energy increases the vitality of the cell, so that it can absorb nutrients, and dispose of cellular waste products faster and more effectively.
Improved Vascular Activity
Laser energy significantly increases the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, speeding Up the healing process, closing wounds more quickly, and reducing scar tissue in the affected area.
Increased Metabolic Activity
Laser energy increases cellular metabolic rates by stimulating higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen exchange, and food particle load ingestion for blood cells.
Trigger Points/Acupuncture Points
Laser therapy Stimulates A'rnusc1e trigger points. and acupuncture points non-invasively, providing enhanced musculoskeletal pain relief.
What are the Benefits of Laser Therapy?
- Highly effective for many diseases and conditions
- Restores normal range of motion and physical function
- Easily applied
- No known adverse effects
- No drug interactions
- Often makes surgical interventions unnecessary
- Provides a treatment alternatlve for patients that have not responded to other therapies
What additional benefits are provided to the patient through high gower laser therapy?
- Injuries treated with lasers heal faster
- Strengthening effect on tissue and bone repair
- Improved blood flow and lymphatic drainage
- Effective means of relief for many pain syndromes
- Improved immune response
Clinical studies and laser therapy trials have shown the following benefits on tissue and cells:
Class IV Laser Therapy has a beneficial effect on nerve cells by blocking the pain transmitted by the cells to the brain, which decreases nerve sensitivity and reduces the perception of pain; This results in decreased inflammation and reduced level of edema. Pain is also decreased due to the production and release of endorphins and enkephalins, which are natural pain-relieving chemicals released from the brain and adrenal gland.
Improved Nerve Function
Class IV Laser therapy speeds up the process of nerve reconnection, and stimulates the regeneration of surrounding myelin tissue, reducing and often eliminating pain, tingling and burning.
Accelerated Nerve Growth and Cell Repair
Photonic laser energy penetrates deep within the tissue to accelerate cell reproduction and growth. Laser Light increases energy to the cell, which helps aid nutrient absorption and waste removal. The result is accelerated healing of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and even bone.
