Laser Therapy

Laser therapy1 is the term most commonly used to describe the therapeutic application of laser light at low intensity. In general, laser therapy is given at gentle, non-ionizing wavelengths within the red to near-infrared portion of the spectrum and at modest output powers below the threshold of thermal damage2.

An adverse reaction has never been documented in more than fifty years of clinical and research use, perhaps because laser therapy is generally given at gentle wavelengths and intensities. More than 5,000 studies and articles have been published.  Results have been stunning.

What can laser therapy treat?

Many, perhaps all, medical conditions are likely to benefit.  Laser therapy adds energy to regenerate cells and tissue and promote their normal function.  Conditions in which positive results have been documented include:

  • Acne
  • Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome
  • Allergic Purpura
  • Alopecia Areata
  • Arteriosclerosis/Atherosclerosis
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Back Pain
  • Bone Healing
  • Burger’s Disease
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Dental Applications (many)
  • Dermatitis
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders
  • Headaches/Migraine
  • Hearing Disorders
  • Hypertension
  • Lymphedema
  • Maxillofacial Disorders
  • Meniere’ s Disease
  • Nerve Regeneration
  • Neuropathy
  • Pain (many kinds)
  • Peyronie’s Disease
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Post-herpetic Neuralgia
  • Prostatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
  • Respiratory Disorders
    (Asthma, Bronchitis, Pleurisy, Pneumonia, Sinusitis, Tuberculosis)
  • Scars
  • Skin Disorders
  • Sports Injuries
  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
  • Tendonitis
  • Tinnitus
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Wound Healing

What are the effects of laser therapy?
Four effects of low intensity laser light reported in the scientific literature are:

  1. Biostimulation/Tissue Regeneration
  2. Reduction of Inflammation
  3. Relief of Pain
  4. Antimicrobial/Immune Enhancement 2
