Low Level Laser Therapy for Musculoskeletal Conditions

Rafael Nadal has it nailed. Seen at a tournament with his K-Laser Cube peeping out from his sports bag he is obviously onto this incredible technology.

Low level laser therapy also known as cold laser is increasingly being used for sports injuries, wound healing, pain management and surgical recovery. So how does it work?

  • Photobiostimulation is the term used to describe biostimulation and bioinhibition of the body’s cells and is generally referred to as “biomodulation”
  • There is no heating or denaturation of protein so the tissue isn’t destroyed and the risk of burn is very low
  • The light is absorbed by photo receptors within cell membranes and organelles
  • The effects include:
    • Increased microcirculation
    • Stimulation of the lymphatic system
    • Increased activity of macrophages and fibroblasts and
    • Changes in action potential of nerves
  • It can be thought of as changing the behaviour of tissue.

    We have a suite of courses for health professionals such as doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, Chinese medicine practitioners, massage therapists and osteopaths who are using laser for soft tissue and musculoskeletal conditions. Did you know that everybody who uses a low level laser must have laser safety certification? Click here for more information.
