The mechanism upon which its functionality is based revolves around the properties of light; more specifically, laser therapy makes it possible to concentrate and transfer a very high quantity of energy on a specific surface. Our body transforms this bright energy into chemical energy through cellular mechanisms. This chemical energy is essential to carrying out daily biological functions, in this case in a shorter timespan and with a very high efficacy.
This process translates into a reduction in healing time for the patient, who will see the benefits of laser therapy through a decrease in pain, inflammation, swelling, as well as in recovery time in general. This kind of treatment does not expose the patient to risks, provided that the professional has learned the basic knowledge through special training.
More than 1,200 studies conducted over 40 years worldwide have shown the powerful therapeutic benefits of high powered class IV laser therapy. Findings include:
- Acute Pain: diminished more than 70%, chronic pain more than 60%
- Chronic Low Back Pain: treatment effective in 71% of cases; pain eliminated completely in 45%
- Wounds: 55% greater healing on day 8, as compared to the placebo group
- Knee Injury: improved knee flexion and pressure sensitivity after every treatment
THE SECRET IS LIGHT ENERGY
High powered class IV laser therapy delivered from our laser devices, targets damaged tissue with specific wavelengths of light that have been found to interact with tissue and accelerate the healing process.
Much like photosynthesis in plants, light energy passes through the skin, into the cell membrane, initiating a process called photobiostimulation. This process enhances the body’s natural regenerative functions, as well as stimulating the release of endorphins and collagen. It may eventually even normalize damaged or injured tissue.
The result? Accelerated wound healing, as well as reduced pain, stiffness, swelling, and spasms. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored, so patients may take their life back and resume their favorite hobbies and activities.
Here at Vector Spine and Sport we use laser to aid in treating sports injury, Auto-accidents, strains and sprains and many other types of conditions. If you have questions or concerns we would love to help.
