Laser therapy energizes living systems.
Four well accepted effects in the scientific literature are:
- Biostimulation / Tissue Regeneration
- Reduction of Inflammation
- Enhanced Immune Function / Antimicrobial
One important way in which laser therapy adds energy is through photon absorption by mitochondria. These tiny organelles which have been called the "powerhouses" of the cell, are found in most plants and animals. Mitochondria are able to absorb laser light which then activates a series of reactions to increase and store more cellular energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
By increasing energy available in this readily accessible form, laser light is able to greatly stimulate the biological function of cells, tissue, and systems and even raise overall vital energy throughout the individual. "Bio" stimulation = Life stimulation!
When energy is available, the body can heal itself.
Laser therapy has been shown to stimulate the regeneration of bone, blood, the lining of blood vessels, cartilage, cochlear hair cells, central and peripheral nerve, and muscle. Moreover, it has been documented to enhance the quality of healed tissue. Laser therapy may be an ideal treatment. It may not only effectively address many medical conditions but also has been widely reported to improve health and wellbeing as evidenced by a host of biological markers.
