High Intensity Lasers for DEEP Tissue Therapy
What are the Benefits of High Intensity Laser Therapy?
•No known adverse effects
•No drug interactions
•Often makes surgical interventions unnecessary
•Provides a treatment alternative for patients that have not responded to other therapies
Laser therapy has an anti-edema effect as it causes vasodilatation, as well as activatating the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
•Anti-Pain (Analgesic) 980nm is the most popular wavelength for this effect
Laser therapy has a highly beneficial effect on nerve cells which blocks pains transmitted to the brain and decreases nerve sensitivity. As inflammation and edema are reduced and pain signals also decrease.
•Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into the targeted tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and more efficiently remove waste products.
•Improved Vascular Activity
Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue which in effect speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue.
•Increased Metabolic Activity
Laser therapy stimulates specific enzymes, increases cell oxygenation and blood flow.
•Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points
Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
High Intensity Lasers (HILT) for Deep Tissue Therapy
iPALM is a new generation of portable physical therapy laser provided by Peak Lasers. The maximum power is 9 Watt with the choice of two wavelengths, 810nm and 980nm. The iPALM is battery operated which makes it ideal for practitioners on the go, home call outs, seminars, sporting events and can easily be stored away in the office draw. Additionally the iPALM comes complete with a cooling lens that works to keep skin temperatures low during treatment.
