The History of Laser
Laser is not a new concept and has been around for a long time. Over the years it has gained more popularity as a pain management modality.
In 1916 Albert Einstein proposed the basic idea underlying laser operation. The invention of the laser can be dated to 1958 with the publication of the scientific paper Infrared and Optical Masters.
In 1903, Nils Finsen a Danish medical doctor, was given the Nobel Prize for successfully treating tuberculosis, rickets and lupus vulgaris with ultraviolet light. This was the first recognized application of artificial
light to cure disease.
In 1967 Dr Endre Mester, a professor of surgery in Hungary, performed a revolutionary series of experiments that first documented the healing effect of lasers. In his earliest study he discovered that tissue growth was accelerated with laser therapy. His later experiements documented not only improved healing with light therapy, but also demonstrated that the healing was stystemic and not a local phenomenon
In 1923 the Russian researcher Alexander Gurwitsch first detected that cells emit infrared light as a means of intercellular communication. He observed that this light could be transmitted from a test tube to another adjacent one without any physical contact between them. He termed this infrarred emission “mitogenetic radiation”
How does laser therapy work?
Laser therapy generates a photochemical response in damaged tissue by a process called photobiomodulation. This process stimulates healing on a cellular level by enabling cells to rapidly produce more energy within the cell. Therfore speeding up recovery, reducing pain and inflammation.
Deep Tissue Layer Therapy
Scientifically proven to reduce pain and inflammation. Treatments are fast, safe painless and results can often be seen after only a few sessions. Class IV lasers are able to penetrate into deeper tissues which result in fast, consistent results.
Treatments usually last between 4 and 10 minutes, quicker if only the superficial tissues are involved.
Non invasive and drug free
Laser theapy does not involve any invasive procedures and drug free. Ideal for patients who are struggling with their pain management via multiple medications.
Surgery Free - Avoid surgery and time associated with post op healing
Fast Acting - Quicker recovery times with laser therapy
