Why our Caloundra Laser Therapy class 4 laser is the best laser around
In contrast to Class 1, 2 & 3 low level lasers (LLLT) with low power from 1-500milWatts (.5watts) results in limited dosage levels: our lase incorporates advanced class 4 laser technology that are many times more powerful providing power levels of .5 – 30watts. These higher powers, in combination with proper wavelengths, laser beam size and treatment techniques enable me to safely and effectively deliver significantly higher dosage levels (a key to success) and enhanced abilities to penetrate deeper into the cellular tissue providing better and longer lasting clinical outcomes.
Photobiomodulationhas been officially defined as a form of light therapy that utilizes non-ionizing forms of light sources. It is a nonthermal process involving endogenous chromophores eliciting photophysical (linear and nonliner) and photochemical events at various biological events at various biological scales. This process results in beneficial therapeutic outcomes including but not limited to the alleviation of pain or inflammation, immunomodulation, and promotion of wound healing and tissue regeneration.
What are the Clinical Benefits of Laser Therapy?
- Anti-inflammation: laser therapy has a anti-edemic effect as it causes vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
- Anti-Pain (analgesic): 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.
- Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: 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 cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products.
- Improved Vascular Activity: laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damage tissue that speed up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scare tissue.
- Increased Metabolic Activity: laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particles loads of blood cells.
- Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points: laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
- Improved Nerve Function: slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of axonal regeneration, nerve cell reconnection, and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.
- Reduced Fibrous Tissue formation: laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns, or surgery.
- Immunoregulaton: laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulation of immunoglobulins and lymphocytes. Laser therapy is absorbed by chromophores (molecule enzymes) that react to laser light. The enzyme flavomono-nucleotide is activated and starts the production of ATP, which is the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical reaction in the cell.
- Faster Wound Healing: laser light stimulates fibroblast development (fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, which is predominant in wound healing), in damaged tissue. Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries.
