 For over fifty years laser therapy has been used  for the purpose of stimulating living tissues  (photobiomodulation).  


 The first use of low power laser to stimulate healing is credited to Dr. Andre  Mester  of Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary for his infamous  wound  healing studies in 1967.


 The addition of this new therapeutic modality allows the practitioner to  enhance the  patient’s healing in multiple ways. Pain reduction can occur  through decreasing inflammatory chemicals, decreasing nerve irritability,  and even nerve regeneration.  Healing tissue has shown to be stronger from laser therapy stimulation  than  without.  Muscle soreness and swelling can be  decreased allowing a faster return to activity  and decreased treatments.

Cold Laser and High Intensity Laser Therpay  (HILT) does not destroy tissues.


 


Light energy is used to stimulate the  body’s repair mechanisms.


Photobiomodulation


  • Stimulating blood flow
  • Relaxing muscles
  • Decreasing swelling
  • Decreasing pain signals
  • Stimulating nerve repair
  • Stimulating collagen production

LiteCure Class IV High Intensity  Laser Therapy  (HILT) 

HOW IS IT APPLIED?


A specific dose is determined for your condition based on chronic or acute, region of the body, and other individual factors.


The laser is moved over an area in a slow scanning motion.


WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?


A mild warmth sensation under the wide laser beam and a feeling of relaxation of the muscles.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?


  • Treatment sessions take about 15 - 20 minutes
  • Length of visits vary depending on condition
  • 4 – 8 visits are common


HOW DOES HIGH INTENSITY LASER THERAPY (HILT)  DIFFER 

FROM COLD LASER THERAPY FOR PAIN AND HEALING?

Laser therapy is applied by determining a specific dose (much like medication) and is dependent on available laser power, the total area to be treated, and amount of inflammation of the tissues receiving laser therapy.  Cold laser is known as class III. It can have up to a thousand times less power which can make it either ineffective for the condition or making more treatments necessary. It can be difficult to treat as large of an area as a class IV laser or cover as many areas per session. The doctor will explain this in more depth at your visit and how it will be specifically applied to your condition.  High Intensity Laser Therapy  or  HILT  has been proven comfortable, SAFE and EFFECTIVE in thousands of patients and many clinical trials.
