What Is It And How Does It Work? Light has been used for healing for many centuries. We know that when sunlight strikes the skin, our whole body feels the benefits. Even our brain is affected by sunlight. Not until the advent of laser in the early 60's, and its subsequent use in physical therapy in the 80's, have we begun to touch upon the meaning and importance of light to life itself!
The basic unit of light is the photon. Each photon carries a unique amount of energy depending on factors such as wavelength. When one applies light to biological tissue, one is actually applying energy (photons) to the tissue. This energy is absorbed by the cells and stored as adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
The end result is that the absorbed energy is used to repair the tissue, reduce pain and/or restore normalcy to an otherwise impaired biological process.
Benefits To Patients? Within minutes micro-circulation is improved, bringing improved oxygen and blood flow to the area. This has both anti-inflammatory and healing effects. Light transmitted to the blood has positive effects throughout the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.
Nerve stimulation is immediate! Many acute and chronic conditions can be improved or eliminated with laser light therapy.
