The laser effects metabolism at the cellular level. It helps injured cells/tissue heal quicker by enabling normal oxidative phosphorylation to be restored at mitochondria. Light receptor in the mitochondria (called a chromophore) accepts light and this impacts inner mitochondrial membrane at cytochrome-C Oxidase. Once activated, cells can produce more ATP, which helps restore normal cell metabolism.
It can assist in pain relief by its unique analgesic abilities that can help decrease Inflammation decreases around the nerve which promotes long term relief. Laser therapy can increases factors that impact pain perception such as Dopamine, Beta-endorphin, Nitric Oxide, and Ach. Lightforce laser therapy in Plantation can decrease inflammatory factors in the body such as bradykinin, Prostaglandins (PGE-2), COX-2 (these same pathways blocked by NSAIDs) Laser therapy also provides analgesia affects by decreasing conduction rate of C fibers (dull, radiating pain) and A-delta fibers (sharp localized pain). Primary reason you can change pain levels during initial treatment.
Laser therapy can benefit both chronic and acute pain syndromes. Lightforce laser therapy in Plantation can provide relief to joint pain by acting at synovium to reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can decrease swollen joints and pain in osteoarthritis. Laser therapy is also safe over total joints/ metal implants.
Laser therapy can provide relief to Tissue by helping increase fibroblastic, osteoblastic, tenocyte activity. Treatment promotes the laying down of new collagen fibers and fibroblastic activity increases and number of fibroblasts. Microcirculation and neovascularization both increase with laser therapy and this promotes tissue healing. Laser therapy can increase macrophage activity which decreases inflammation and also provides faster healing against chronic dysfunction.
