How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair mechanisms in the presence of injury, sports and workout injuries, inflammation and with certain disease processes. LLLT is consistent in providing pain relief, reducing injury damage, loss of function and in facilitating a more rapid repair of damaged tissues creating stronger healed tissue structures.

It does this through the action of photo-stimulation of specific wavelengths affecting the light reactive biological cell receptors (chromophores) in the body.

This modifies the effects of injured tissue and reduces the overall duration of inflammation, while enhancing your body’s specific repair and healing mechanisms. This in turn reduces pain, spams and increases natural range of motion and flexibility of the injured area(s).

Multiple Clinical Studies Have Noted The Following Results of LLLT:

  • Increased collagen production
  • Increased vasodilation
  • Increased cell metabolism
  • Increased cell membrane potential
  • Increased microcirculation
  • Increased lymphatic response
  • Enhanced nerve regeneration
  • Reduced inflammatory duration
  • Increased pain threshold
  • Reduced edema magnitude
  • Increased tissue and bone repair
  • Increasedenzyme response

Depth of Tissue Penetration

Some 30+ years of scientific study and clinical research has provided us with detailed information on the reaction of biologic organelles (cell structures) to laser light. It has also shown us which wavelengths penetrate most deeply and what energy levels effect biological processes in the most desirable manner. We need to fully understand the relationship between the depth (from the skin surface) of the target tissue and the ability of the therapeutic laser light to reach that tissue.

The light from the laser distributes in the tissue in the shape of a ball or an egg . This is dependent on the wavelength of the light. Short wavelengths give a smaller and fairly round ball-shaped distribution, while longer wavelengths give a more eggshaped distribution. The shorter 632 nm visible red wavelength is more readily absorbed by blood and skin surface components, thereby limiting its tissue penetration.

The longer 830nm invisible infrared wavelength is not as readily absorbed therefore it has significantly greater depth of penetration. A greater amount of photons are delivered to the target tissue with the 830nm wavelength.

There is now ample clinical evidence that in contrast to other wavelengths, the 830 nm laser light produces specific beneficial biological reactions that are not produced by other wavelengths. This unique ability to stimulate greater response is the key to 830nm laser therapy.

What Makes The Difference In Successful Treatment with LLLT?

The answer to this question is essentially one of penetration and delivered energy. In the treatment of soft and connective tissue injuries and disorders, the goal is to deliver the most effective laser wavelength to the target tissue.

Success Is In The Photon

One of the major contributors to the effectiveness of low level laser therapy is the exchange of energy from light photons to the biological receptor.

In order to achieve any therapeutically significant response, there has to be sufficient photons delivered to the target tissue.

The availability of photons for stimulation is a function of both the appropriate wavelength and device power output.

These two factors determine the amount of photons reaching the desired location.

In treating conditions of greater than 1 cm in depth from the skin surface, the combination of the 830nm wavelength with a 30mW output produces the optimum photon beam.

Devices using other wavelengths and the very low 5-10 mW output lack the capability to supply adequate photon energy to deep tissue conditions.

Stimulates Increased ATP Production

Laser therapy has been used by leading scientists and clinicians around the world for over 20 years. In Japan, where laser therapy is considered a preferred medical practice, Dr. Noriko Mochizuki et al published a clinical study on the effect of laser therapy and ATP production.

In that study, the scientists found that tissue levels of ATP were significantly increased when the target area was irradiated with 830nm wavelength laser light. The study further stated that this beneficial increase in ATP production was not the result of temperature modification, but rather a direct response to the effect of laser light photons.

This study also showed that while 830 nm wavelength laser light stimulated ATP increases, laser light at 632nm had no stimulatory effect on ATP production.

This study along with a host of other clinical reports confirm the singular ability of the 830nm laser wavelength to stimulate cellular responses that result in accelerated metabolism and repair.

Since ATP functions as the primary fuel for cellular activity, stimulated increases of this energy source greatly enhances cellular ability to perform and complete biological processes.

Cold Laser Results in Increased Endorphins

Clinical studies done by Dr. Laakso et al from Royal Brisbane Hospital in Australia have confirmed that significant increases in plasma levels of endorphins resulted from 830nm laser irradiation. This same study showed that low dose diation do not result in significant increases in endorphin levels.

It is also important to note that this study confirmed that the 30mW power output provides better results than the low power, 5-10 mW units in endorphin stimulation.

The ability of the 830nm wavelength to stimulate the production of pain reducing plasma endorphin levels, while other wavelengths did not, is important when clinicians are treating painful conditions.

The Olympic training center in Lake Placid, N.Y., plans to offer the therapy within a few months.According to Edward Ryan III, director of Sports Medicine for the U.S. Olympic Training Center, the cold laser has given athletes significant relief from pain and increased their range of motion. Because the device is hand-held and portable, he said, it can even be used in competition venues. NFL: The Washington Post reported the use of the MicroLight Laser by the New England Patriots of the National Football League prior to their 2004 Super Bowl XXXVIII victory.

My wife and I were in a car accident and we both went to different doctors, as I told her about doctor A and his staff she could not believe the care and treatments I received. She provided feedback to her doctor and he did not have the technology or the staff that Priority Medical does. I am grateful to Doctor A and his staff for their great attitudes and medical treatment. Throughout the Pandemic Doctor A ensured safety was a top priority keeping social distance and hand sanitizer everywhere and constant sanitizing made me feel comfortable I was in good hands.

This business is extremely unprofessional. I was recommended to this doctor for treatment and was denied and turned away due to the fact that they felt uncomfortable because the person who recommended the Doctor was a previous employee. I was told this was a good rehab center but the fact that they turned me away really shows how they care about their patients.
