What is Laser or Light Therapy?

Low level laser & LED Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. The light may be provided by a low power laser or an LED (light emitting diode). Laser emits energy in a for of photons; these particles of energy are absorbed by cells and tissue resulting in conversion of light into biochemical energy. Multiple physiological responses are thereby initiated and normal cell function is restored. This process is curative and eliminates symptoms (i.e. pain, edema, etc).

What is its history?
The effect of red light on cellular function have been known since 1880, however the clinical benefits were only discovered by accident during laser safety test in 1967. The first lasers suitable for treating pain became available commercially in the late 1970’s and ever since then, laser therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors. Now, after FDA approval in 2002, laser therapy is quickly gaining popularity in the USA.
