Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of clinical conditions. Cleared by the FDA in 2003, Class IV laser therapy has become standard of care for many musculoskeletal injuries.
MEDRAY & ACCURAY laser systems optimize and promote the healing process by stimulating multiple levels of tissue regeneration mechanisms. Under the stimulation of different-wavelengths laser light, the local increase of reactive oxygen species is repaired by generating additional ATP, thereby accelerating the metabolism of the cells and repairing the biological functions of the damaged cells. During the laser therapy process, our lasers provide a warm and smoothing feeling to the patients.
Comparing with Class Ill laser, our Class IV diode laser has better absorption and penetration with obvious advantages:
Laser therapy has an anti-edemic effect as it causes vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
Laser therapy has a high beneficial effect on nerve cells which block pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema and less pain.
Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products.
Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue.
Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
