The Benefits of Class 4 Laser Therapy
1.) Anti-Inflammation: MLS Laser therapy has an anti-swelling effect as it causes vasodilatation and activates lymphatic drainage, which decrease inflammation.
2.) Anti-Pain (Analgesic): MLS Laser therapy helps nerve cells heal, which blocks the pain being transmitted by these cells and decreases nerve sensitivity. Decreased inflammation, also means less pain. Lastly, laser therapy increases production of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and encephalin.
3.) Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: It is well known that light has a healing effect on the body. Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue providing energy to accelerate cellular reproduction and healing of cells, tendons, ligaments, muscles and other tissues.
4.) Improved Vascular Activity: Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries and speeds up the healing process.
5.) Increases Metabolic Activity: MLS Laser therapy creates higher outputs of ATP production, specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
6.) Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points: MLS Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing pain relief.
7.) Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: MLS Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.
8.) Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the nerve supply to optimize muscle recovery.
9.) Immunoregulation: Laser light has a direct effect on immunity by stimulation of immunoglobulins and lymphocytes. MLS Laser therapy is absorbed by chromophores enzymes that react to laser light. The enzyme reactions are activated and starts the production of ATP.
10.) Faster Wound Healing: Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and collagen production, which is important in healing any kind of damaged tissue.
