The development of laser technology goes back a long way – to the year 1920 to Albert Einstein. 1960 the first laser was built and afterwards the technique developed rapidly. First medical reports on the treatment of chronic wounds were composed of E. Mester, physician from Hungary. Today low power laser therapy is already very well explored in its mode of action – due to numerous studies. For many of the indications there is recognized scientific evidence of the effect.
Effect of low power laser therapy
Laser light – what is it?
Laser light is light with special qualities. This light is full of energy and can be visible or invisible. The high energy content and the special qualities allow very good therapeutic effects in certain diseases.
How does low power laser therapy effect?
Low power therapy is regulatory therapy. The irradiation delivers electromagnetic energy and is transformed into biochemical energy in the tissue. Hence the cellular metabolism of the disturbed cells is affected.
In cells several biochemical processes are activated. The mitochondria play a major role in the cellular effects of low power laser therapy. This leads to improved autoimmunity and therefore faster healing.
- Pain relief
- Progression of blood circulation
- Reduction of inflammation
- Faster wound healing
- Infection reduction
- Size reduction
Hemo laser therapy uses the energy of red laser light for direct irradiation of blood. The light is transmitted directly into the vena of the forearm by a special light conductor and thus acts directly on each blood component.
The following effects can be achieved by hemo-laser therapy:
- Increased erythrocyte deformability
- Decreased platelet aggregation and red blood cells
- Increased deformability of the extracellular “cloud” (blood plasma cell interface)
- Decreased blood viscosity
Hemo-laser therapy improves metabolism, increases blood circulation and thus oxygen supply. This can be clearly verified by laboratory analyzes.
