Low Level Laser Benefits

The low-level laser therapy is an alternative method of treatment where the injured body part is exposed to lasers of low intensity, which stimulate the cells and tissues and quicken the healing process. Applied by a special laser beam generator, the affected body part is exposed to the low-intensity laser, which produces photon energy. This energy is transformed into biochemical energy and the cumulative effect after subsequent sessions at set intervals restores the normal functioning of the cells. What makes the low-level laser treatment very popular is the quick initiation of healing, alleviation of pain, inflammation and no effect on the cells, which are functioning normally.

The low-level laser treatment has various benefits. It nearly eliminates pain and inflammation, restores normal body functioning without the use of painkillers, is non-toxic and non-invasive and improves the overall quality of life. The use of the low-level laser therapy has extended to the following areas:

  • Inflammatory conditions, bursitis, tendonitis, myosistis, synovitis, fascitis and other inflammatory conditions of the tissues.
  • Helps in tissue repair like ligament sprains and strains, burns, wound repairs, bed sores, ulcers, muscle tears, sports injuries and lacerations
  • Joint pains such as arthritis, rheumatic pain, joint pain like ankle, shoulder, hip and knee, carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatic pain
  • Acute and chronic pain control for back, rheumatoid arthritis, calcification, tendonitis, head and neck injuries, vertebrogenic and discogenic radiculopathy and neuralgia.
  • Skin lesions like diabetic ulcers, acne and dermatological problems

The low-level laser therapy is very safe and its capability to penetrate the tissues makes it a stimulant, which induces cell growth and tissue repair. There is enhanced activation of the mitochondria in the cells, which restores the normal functioning of the cells. The increased blood circulation to the area also quickens the healing process.

The low-level laser treatment is very safe with minimal side effects but high therapeutic efficiency. It is like any other treatment process, which if followed as per the doctor's direction provides safe results. The intensity of the laser being low is safe for the exposed skin and therefore, there is no harm in using the low-level laser for regular treatment sessions.
