LED & Laser Therapy

 

LED (Light Emitting Diode) and LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) Therapy use focused low level light. Unlike most light sources, light from a LASER is tuned to specific wavelengths, which serve a specific purpose.

 

Why use light?  What are the benefits?

  1. Increases Blood Circulation

  2. Stimulates the body's anti-inflammatory response

  3. Increases the function of the lymphatic system

  4. Helps to repair damaged cells in the body by Increasing DNA & RNA synthesis

  5. Stimulates collagen production and ATP (energy within the body's cells that make them function properly)

  6. Helps the healing of wounds by stimulating tissue granulation and connective tissue

  7. Helps to repair connective tissue by stimulating fibroblast activity within the connective tissue and capable of forming collagen fibers

  8. Helps reduce pain (reduces excitability of nerve tissue... The photons of light energy enter the body as negative ions. This requires the body to send positive ions, calcium among others, to flow to the area being treated. These ions assist in regulating the nerves)

  9. Helps fight infections by finding and eliminating dead or degenerate cells by increasing phagocytosis.


Laser Therapy can be used for the following applications (but not limited to):

  • PAIN Reduction

  • Musculoskeletal/Orthopedic

    • Arthritis

    • Carpal Tunnel

    • Tendonitis

    • Fibromyalgia

  • Dermatology

    • Acne

    • Eczema

    • Psoriasis

    • Rosacea

  • Neurological

    • Tinnitus

    • Menières Disease

    • Neuralgias (including Shingles)

    • Dementia

    • Alzheimer's Disease

    • Traumatic Brain Injury

    • Stroke

    • Parkinson's

  • Dental Conditions (pre/post surgery pain/inflammation reduction)

  • Inflammatory conditions

    • Wound Healing

    • Strains

    • Fractures

    • Sinusitis

    • Lymphadema

RESEARCH is currently being conducted on it's effects to treat many issues (including Cancer). Laser Therapy can also be used in place of needles for acupuncture treatment (see below).

Laser Acupuncture

In 1991, Researchers in Novosibirsk, Russia shined light on various parts of the body and found that light traveled under the skin to other acupuncture points, but not to places that were on acupuncture meridians. It appears that the body contains a sort of fiber optic network where light enters an acupuncture point, travels through the meridian and can be detected in other places along the meridian with a sensitive photon detector. This is a fascinating study showing how light is actually received, used and transmitted throughout the body.  It also helps to demonstrate how acupuncture actually works, in general terms.
