What is Laser Therapy?
OUR LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY DEVICES ARE FDA CLEARED FOR CERTAIN PAIN CONDITIONS. ANY USES BEYOND THOSE FOR WHICH THEY HAVE BEEN CLEARED ARE INTENDED FOR INVESTIGATIONAL AND CLINICAL TRIAL USE ONLY UNDER IRB GUIDELINES.
Low level laser therapy effects are biochemical and not thermal and do not cause heating and thereby damage to living tissue. Four distinct effects are known to occur when using low level laser therapyFOR OUR COMPLETE SLIDE PRESENTATION ON LASER THERAPY, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK http://www.healthandbeautylasers.com
Parameters for Use of Laser Therapy Devices
A) Selection of the correct beneficial Wavelength
B) The use of the correct Power levels
C) The consistent application of the necessary amount of Energy measured in Joules. Another factor which has to be considered in laser therapy is Pulsing Frequency.
Wavelengthis measured in nanometers. It is set in the manufacturing of the laser diode in the probe and cannot be changed. Class 3B lasers are manufactured with wavelengths of between 600 and 1000 nm
Red Light Laser Probes with Wavelengths between 620 and 675nm.
Readily absorbed by the mitochondria and therefore potentially stimulatory
Excellent source of stimulation of a range of growth factors
Red Light therapy does not penetrate very effectively below the skin surface and into the tissue below
Red light therapy is the best for wound healing or superficial conditions but is not the most effective way to treat deeper injury
Infrared (Invisible) Laser Probes with Wavelengths between 780 and 950nm.
Absorbed through the cell walls (acting differently between cells) and therefore cell response is more wavelength specific in the infrared range, responding differently to different wavelengths<
More penetrative through the tissue, especially the 785-830nm range, therefore this range is selected for treatment through intact skin and pain relief
Cluster probes with a range of wavelengths offer the best of both worlds to a clinician
How to Calculate the Necessary Energy for Laser Therapy
Simply, to increase the energy being delivered by the probe you increase the time of treatment.
Low level laser therapy Pulsing Rate
Pulsing rate equals the number of times per second light is emitted. Research has demonstrated there are pulsing rate specific effects with low level laser therapy. Concise details of optimal pulsing frequencies and energy density requirements are supplied with our laser therapy equipment.
