The procedure known as photobiomodulation or laser therapy is specified use of wavelength of two types of light, both near-infrared, and red to generate therapeutic results. Laser therapy has been shown to reduce the healing time of patients following a procedure, lessen the amount of swelling, reduce pain, and improve circulation. Dating as far back as the 1970’s, laser therapy has been commonly used by doctors, nurses, and physical therapists in Europe. Upon its approval from the FDA in 2002, Laser Therapy has become a widely utilized treatment in the United States.
Can the Results if Laser Therapy Be Proven Scientifically?
There have been a multitude of studies that have been published that have shown that Laser therapy is highly effective for a host of acute and chronic medical conditions. Laser Therapy has been proven to prompt the growth and repair of tissue. Laser treatments reduce the level of discomfort, reduced inflammation, and decreases the amount of scar tissue. Some of the conditions that Laser Therapy has shown to effectively treat are:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Myofascial Trigger Points
- Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
- Ligament Sprains
- Muscle Strains
- Repetitive Stress Injuries
- Chondromalacia Patellae
- Plantar Fasciitis

What are Some of the Therapeutic Effects of Laser Treatments?
Laser therapy boosts circulation, and pulls in oxygen, water, and nutrients that the damaged area needs to heal. In addition it lessens stiffness and muscle spasms ultimately creating the ideal environment for the affected area to heal. Laser treatments are painless and tolerated well by the patients that receive them.
How Does Laser Therapy Generate Cellular Effects?
The interaction of tissues and infrared laser light at the cellular level, combined with increases in metabolic activity inside of individual cells, during the process of Laser Therapy improves the transportation of nutrients throughout the membranes of the cells, during Laser Therapy, produces cellular energy, and promotes a wealth of beneficial effects that improve better health and function.
