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