Laser therapy has been shown to be effective for acute and chronic pain and inflammation.
Laser Therapy transfers energy in the form of electrons from a light source to the microstructure of the cell, which is then able to use that energy to facilitate the operation of various cell functions. Damaged/injured cells have lost the ability to produce energy required for cellular repair. Laser Therapy produces millions of electrons per second in such a fashion that they can immediately be used by the cellular systems to facilitate cellular reproduction and repair that subsequently reduces pain. Laboratory studies suggest that the use of specific wave length monochromatic light stimulates collagen production, accelerates DNA synthesis, and improves the function of normal and damaged tissue.
