The Main 3 Theories of Cold Laser Effectiveness
Put the optimum energy: (Dosage measured joules) into the tissue. This is the core technology of photobiostimulation. ColdLasers.Org agrees that proper dosage is the core technology and probably has the highest correlation to efficacy.
Pulse the laser to get an additional reaction from tissue: Pulsing adds an extra dimension to lasers and allows lasers to deliver higher peak energy levels while still being safe. In some applications, the pulsing frequency is of upmost importance. Pulsing can also make it harder for the body to become resistant to the therapy so it is more important for longer term treatment plans. This feature is great to tweak the laser for slightly better results but it is over-hyped by some manufacturers. Systems that only focus on pulsing often provide poor results and there are several scam laser companies that claim unrealistic pulsing properties.
Use different wavelengths to simulate different reactions:
Wavelengths below 800nm interact with the body in a different way than those above 800nm. Every manufacturers says they have the best wavelength but they range from 1350nm down into the 400 nm (blue spectrum). 95% of professional therapy lasers operate in the 620nm to 980nm range. Research shows that 800 to 860 nm is the preferred wavelength for energizing damaged tissue. The more extreme and less established wavelengths are main offered in the hyper-marketed consumer market and there is very little science to justify the fringes of the market that make unbelievable claims about 'magic' wavelengths in the blue, purple, green and yellow spectrum. For any condition that requires deep penetration, the science states that 800 to 860nm is the best wavelength and for many special cases 600 to 660nm is the best option. If your primary focus is increasing circulation, then 980nm is mostly converted to deep heat. If you have time to do research, there are lots of publication to show what is the best wavelength for laser therapy.
Laser Therapy has been proven to be an extremely effective non-surgery and non-pharmaceutical option for reducing pain and inflammation. Over 4000 research papers and hundreds of books have shown that laser therapy offer an effective solution to a wide variety of health issues. We offer both class 3 and class 4 laser therapy sessions.
