Low Intensity Laser Therapy is the use of light emission from a low intensity laser diode. Conditions treated include musculoskeletal problems, arthritis, sports injuries and dermatological conditions. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the normalization of cellular components. This also enhances the body’s natural healing processes.
This dynamic emerging technology utilizes superluminous and laser diodes to irradiate abnormal tissue with photons. These are particles of energy that are absorbed by a variety of micro-molecules within the cell, a process which initiates a number of positive physiological responses.
Light, in its various forms, has been observed as a healing practice by cultures as ancient as the Greek and Egyptian civilizations. With recent advances in the engineering of devices and the development of appropriate protocols for effective therapeutic application, dramatic benefits and treatment of many complex medical conditions are now achievable.
