This laser treatment is for both chronic and acute pain caused by musculoskeletal disorders and injuries as well as joint pain. The laser delivers pulsed and continuous wave-lengths of 808nm and 905nm to the affected tissues to reduce pain and inflammation and promote healing.
Specifically for the four main indications:
Reducing muscle spasm and pain
Reducing tissue oedema/swelling
Decreases inflammation by reducing inflammatory cells and reducing tissue damage
Laser therapy uses light to stimulate and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules that cause different biological effects. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of damaged cells. MLS uses 808nm and 905nm energised light in both pulsed and continuous emission. This produces an efficient and synergistic effect to the deep tissues.
Light energy helps heal injuries and decrease pain by:
Stimulating cells to remove toxins
Allowing oxygen and food loads into the cell
Blocking pain signals in the brain and releasing endorphins and encephalin (natural painkillers)
Increasing the production and growth of cells, bringing blood flow into the area and accelerating the healing process
Helping the body’s own healing process by stimulating the mitochondria in the cells
