Laser Therapy

The utilization of laser therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, involves the introduction of photons into the tissue and their interaction with the cytochrome c complex housed within cell mitochondria. This results in a biological chain reaction that boosts cellular metabolism, facilitating tissue healing and mitigating discomfort. Laser therapy serves as an effective means to address both acute and chronic conditions, as well as promote post-activity recovery. Beyond its pain management capabilities, laser therapy is often seen as a viable alternative to pharmaceuticals and can even prolong the need for certain surgeries. It has also proven valuable in pre-and post-surgery care protocols aimed at controlling pain.
Are there any adverse effects associated with laser therapy? What are typical sensations experienced during laser therapy sessions?

Given that light energy cannot permeate through layers of clothing, laser therapies require direct application onto skin. During this process, patients may experience a pleasant warmth emanating from the treated area. LightForce® Therapy Laser treatments have been reported by many individuals to be quite soothing.

Is Photobiomodulation Treatment Safe and Effective?

In 2004, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted clearance to Class IV laser therapy devices, now known as photobiomodulation (PBM), for the purpose of reducing pain and improving microcirculation in a safe and efficient manner. These advanced therapy lasers offer a secure option for addressing musculoskeletal pain resulting from injuries. To ensure utmost precautionary measures during LightForce® treatments, certified protective eyewear should always be worn to mitigate any potential risk to the eyes.

What is the Average Duration of Therapy Sessions?

With LightForce® lasers, sessions are relatively brief – typically lasting between 3 and 10 minutes – depending on variables such as size, depth, and severity of the targeted condition. Due to their high power capabilities which enable concentration of energy within a short period of time, therapeutic dosages can be administered expeditiously. For both patients and medical professionals with hectic schedules seeking timely yet effective treatment methods, this rapid delivery proves indispensable.
