The healing power of light
Therapy with a Low Intensity Laser (LIL) allows the treatment of acute and chronic processes in the tissue.
Laser therapy in medicine has three different effects:
- Photochemical effect (affecting the permeability of cells in tissue and accelerating enzymatic processes, which helps in tissue regeneration),
- Photomechanical effect (impulses generate biostimulatory waves in deep tissue, which inhibits the translation of pain through nerve fibers and triggers the secretion of endogenous opioids – pain inhibitors, while accelerating the regeneration and renewing of degenerative processes, including cartilage.
- Photothermal effect
The most beneficial effects of laser therapy:
- biostimulative (tissue healing)
Laser therapy is symptomatic and at the same time causal as it eliminates the causes of problems and the accompanying symptoms by healing and transforming the tissue at the target level.
Main symptoms and indications:
- conditions after damage to connective tissue, joints, bumps of soft tissues,
- tendons and muscle tears (shoulders, Achilles tendon),
- pain in ligaments due to overload (heel bone spur, plantar fasciitis, epicondylitis, patella, etc.),
- tendinitis, arthritis, arthrosis,
- pain in the cervical spine,
- pain in the lumbar spine (lumbago),
- degenerative changes of small joints,
- Trigger points,
- myofascial pain,
- calcification of soft tissues,
- fibromyalgia, headaches.
- glands of internal secretion,
- febrile conditions,
Low-intensity laser therapy has no side effects, with reduced or increased tissue exposure, it can only happen that the therapeutic effect is absent. Therapies are performed daily or as directed by a doctor.
