Laser Therapy

Laser stands for Light amplification through simulated emission of radiation. Laser is a light beam from the electromagnetic spectrum. Unlike conventional light sources, a laser beam travels in only one direction and is monochromatic with its photons (little packets of energy) which are all identical in size, traveling equidistant in time and space.

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been investigated and used clinically for over 30 years. The ability of lasers to cut, cauterize and destroy tissue is well known. These same or similar lasers at lower powers can nonthermally and nondestructively alter cellular function.

This phenomenon, known as laser biostimulation, is the basis for the current use of lasers to treat a variety of articular, neural and soft tissue conditions. The FDA has cleared the use of low-level laser therapy for increasing local blood circulation, relief of minor muscle aches and joint aches, pain and stiffness, relaxation of muscles, muscle spasm and minor pain and stiffness associated with arthritis.

A variety of names have been used to describe the same type of low-level laser: biostimulation, low energy, low reactive, low intensity, soft and/or cold laser. In current practice, LLLT uses low output levels (15100 mW), short treatment times (10-240 seconds), and low energy levels (1-4 J/cm2).

LLLT is a relatively safe procedure. Due to the low level, nonthermal nature of the laser, there is no tissue destruction or other hazards that you would find associated with the higher powered lasers.
