How Laser Therapy Works
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy™ is an innovative, scientifically based, therapeutic modality. This new technology offers advanced pain relief and expedited healing times through a process known as photobiostimulation.
Photobiostimulation, provides deep penetrating photons influencing cellular chemistry by stimulating chromophores in the mitochondria. Inciting the production of ATP (Adenosine-triphosphate), leads to faster cell repair and the immediate reduction of inflammation, increased circulation and pain relief.
The rapid reduction of swelling and discomfort, and the increased oxygenation of the deep tissue, has proven effective in managing and alleviating pain.
The LCT-1000® delivers deep, penetrating, photonic energy to bring about profound physiological changes. ATP production is increased, inflammation and pain reduced and circulation increased at the site of injury. These changes in cellular chemistry are triggered by the LCT-1000® making it a true healing modality.
Cells that are damaged and poorly oxygenated as a result of inflammation, swelling or trauma have been shown to have a significantly higher response to laser therapy irradiation than normal healthy cells.
At a cellular level there are photoreceptors that, when stimulated by deep penetrating photons, activate a biochemical cascade of events resulting in increased DNA/RNA synthesis, increased cAMP levels, protein and collagen synthesis and cellular proliferation. The product of these reactions is rapid regeneration, normalization and healing of damaged cellular tissue. Photonic stimulation is the trigger for these metabolic changes.
Treatment times and Schedule
Typical treatments average 8-10 minutes. The treatments are very comfortable for the patient as they will feel slight soothing warmth on their skin. The typical treatment schedule is 8 to 12 treatments given usually two to three times a week. Upon completion of the initial set of treatments, evaluation will be made in order to access the ongoing treatment regime. Unlike many other therapeutic modalities, Deep Tissue Laser Therapy has a curative component rather than simply treating symptoms of a disorder. The potential for medical applications of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy exists in many medical fields in order to reduce pain, inflammation, and to increase circulation.
