Harnessing the Energy of Light for Cellular Benefit
While you might be used to thinking of lasers as beams that can cut steel or fend off enemy stormtroopers, not all lasers are destructive in nature.
If you remember your high school physics, you might also recall that light is a form of energy. And while excessive energy can be used destructively, it can also be harnessed for many beneficial purposes—like, say, powering the anti-inflammatory, tissue regeneration, growth, and healing processes within your cells!
With our MLS laser therapy system, there are actually two coordinated lasers in use—a longer-wavelength (905nm) pulsed laser primarily designed for pain relief, and a shorter-wavelength (808nm) continuous laser that rapidly reduces inflammation, as well as stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation (which triggers a whole host of other secondary healing effects).
By working together in coordination, the combined effect of the laser therapy is greater than what either laser could achieve independently.
Laser therapy, as noted is particularly effective in treating soft tissues—like tendons and ligaments—found in great abundance in the lower body. These soft tissues are commonly affected by injury and can become inflamed. The specific wavelengths of laser light used in the process can trigger anti-inflammatory responses in the cells, which is how the therapy is able to relieve pain and reduce swelling in the area.
