Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is an advanced technique that uses a combination of light-emitting diodes and lasers diodes to assist in healing body tissues. It is also known as Cold Laser Therapy. It uses light to penetrate through the skin into the tissues. It has been in use by Physiotherapists for treating a wide range of conditions, since the 1980s. Laser Therapy is a safe procedure since it involves no invasion. Although it only penetrates the skin to a few millimeters, it still has a profound effect on tissue healing. It aids in providing pain relief, reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow, stimulating wound healing, stimulating tissue regeneration, as well as reducing scarring. As per various researches, it has been shown that laser therapy can be a powerful anti-inflammatory which is equally effective as anti-inflammatory medications.
Conditions treated by Laser Therapy
Physiotherapists effectively use Laser Therapy for treating a variety of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. These conditions include Achilles tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, thoracic pain, neck pain, jaw soreness, Tendonitis, Capsulitis, Lymphadenitis, Tennis elbow, Arthralgia, Trigger points, Superficial neuritis, Ligament Strain, Plantar fasciitis, Muscle Tear, Hematomas, TFL syndrome, Groin strains, Chondromalacia Patellae, Back pain, Bruising and wound healing.
Effects of Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a curative technology that involves no invasion and is therefore safe with no side effects. It is used for the treatment of various musculoskeletal disorders. It does not emit any heat, sound or vibration. It has shown effective results in treating pain, inflammation and tissue repair. Laser therapy facilitates optimal cell function to enhance the body’s natural healing mechanisms and thereby helps in eliminating symptoms, such as pain. As compared to other treatments, patients who receive laser therapy in a combination with another treatment, are seen to recover faster from an injury, with less scar tissue and more comfort.
How does Laser Therapy work?
Laser therapy does not only covers the pain, rather it actively stimulates healing mechanism to treat the musculoskeletal conditions for the long term. Firstly, a red light LED pad is used to generate light which is absorbed by the cells of the skin and underlying muscle layers. It reduces sensitivity occurring in those particular areas. These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cells in the body. Secondly, an infrared pad is used to generate light that reaches deeper into the muscle layers as well as the tendons and ligaments to reduce inflammation as well as heal the damaged tissues. Lastly, an infrared laser wand is used. It is specifically placed over the center point of pain. This light is very concentrated and is designed to target the deepest affected tissues beneath, including bone. In this way, pain is reduced and eventually eliminated, while simultaneously restoring mobility. It leads to the restoration of normal cell structure and function.
