Laser

Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation

Laser TherapyLasers generate photochemical responses at the cellular level which increase circulation and cellular energy production while reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. Photonic energy stimulates the photoreceptor on the mitochondria to increase the reaction time for cytochrome C to become cytochrome C oxidase. This is what contributes to faster wound healing.

Wavelength is the main determinant of the laser’s depth of penetration into the tissue. The deep penetrating infrared lasers are ideal for pain management therapy. Most of the lasers on the market are visible RED lasers (620nm-685nm). Red lasers are generally low-power & affect more of the DNA & (biophoton) communication aspects of the cell. The InfraRed (IR) lasers are higher power & generally target inflammation, pain and nitric oxide release.

We use 3 different wavelength lasers for different physiological functions/effects.

  • 635nm wavelength – Cold Laser
  • 810nm wavelength – Heat Laser
  • 980nm wavelength – Heat Laser
Wavelength (nm) = Color Visible spectrum 390-760 each color is a different wavelength.

X-Ray 320 nm | Violet 400s | Green 500s | Red 600s | Infrared 760+

Here is a partial list of the positive effects of Laser Therapy in the body:

  • Increased cellular metabolic activity: Increases oxygen to blood cells.
  • Scar Tissue: Reduced fibrous tissue formation reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns, or following surgery.
  • Pain: Increases in the release of beta endorphins, nitric oxide & decreased bradykinin levels. These are some of the mechanisms that lasers help with pain management.
  • Enhanced bone healing and osteogenesis
  • Inflammation reduction: by inhibiting the synthesis & secretion of (bad) inflammatory prostaglandins. Lasers also can stimulate (good) prostaglandins that have a vasodilatory action, which help stabilize cellular membranes.
  • Immune System Support: enhanced lymphocyte response and macrophage activity.
  • Angiogenesis (improved circulation): stimulates formation of new capillaries within damaged tissues, and accelerates the reabsorption of hematomas.
