Low level laser therapy not only promotes healing in injured cells, but it also stimulates the generation of endorphins that control pain regardless of the location. Low level laser therapy interrupts the pain process by delivering electrons back to the injured cells to aid in healing.
This article gives an overview of trigger point low level laser therapy. Includes a case study that documents a trapezius trigger point eradication after three sessions of far infrared laser irradiation and confirms with anatomic "before-and-after" diagnostic ultra-sonographs.
Low energy laser therapy has been shown, at appropriate dosimetry, wavelength, duration, and site-specific application, to reduce tissue pain/tenderness, normalize
circulation patterns in tissue trauma, and increase collagen formation in wounds.
Therapeutic laser has been shown to have many interesting effects on immune function. In this article I will present some of the scientific studies that have been published relating to immune modulation.
One of the areas of laser therapy that is rather interesting and promises significant potential for healing is application of therapeutic laser to neurological conditions. In this article, I will present a review of scientific studies relative to neurological effects of laser and discuss some of the more promising applications.
