Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Laser = Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
The Endolaser 120 contains a mains electricity (AC-powered) diode laser intended to be used to provide low-level laser therapy (LLLT) for a variety of clinical applications (e.g., to treat pain, promote healing of wounds/injuries/disorders of the joints and soft/connective tissues, for non-needle acupuncture). It consists of an electronic control with a connected applicator to generate laser light in the range infrared frequencies (808 nm and 905 nm). It is intended to be operated by a healthcare provider in a clinical setting.
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.
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.
