How Does Low Laser Therapy Help With Healing Injury?
Laser therapy facilitates or promotes accelerated healing by enhancing the body’s own immune system response and is known as cold laser, low level laser therapy, soft laser or photobiomodulation.
This latest technology involves the use of either a laser diode or light-emitting diodes that emit a specific spectrum of light which its energy is absorbed by the cells of the body.
Why Is It Known As Cold Laser?
Low intensity Laser Therapy is non-invasive treatment and does not heat, cut or damage tissue, unlike high intensity lasers. This therapy is completely safe with no significant adverse side effects. The specific spectrums of light used in Low Intensity Laser Therapy have been scientifically proven to induce changes in cell physiology.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Cold lasers are handheld treatment tool utilised by the clinician and are frequently the size of an electric lamp. The laser is set legitimately over the harmed zone for 30 seconds to a few minutes, contingent upon the size of the territory being dealt with and the portion gave by the cool laser unit. During this time, the non-warm photons of light that are produced from the laser go through the skins layers (the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin). This light can enter 2 to 5cm underneath the skin at 90mw and 8:30 nm.
What Happens When The Laser Is Used For Healing ?
Once the light energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, it is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants – sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow. When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorised to eventually result in normalising damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, oedema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism. Cold laser treatment can stimulate all cell types including muscle, tendon, ligament, nerves. This is how low laser therapy works.
