How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair mechanisms in the presence of injury, sports and workout injuries, inflammation and with certain disease processes. LLLT is consistent in providing pain relief, reducing injury damage, loss of function and in facilitating a more rapid repair of damaged tissues creating stronger healed tissue structures.

It does this through the action of photo-stimulation of specific wavelengths affecting the light reactive biological cell receptors (chromophores) in the body.

This modifies the effects of injured tissue and reduces the overall duration of inflammation, while enhancing your body’s specific repair and healing mechanisms. This in turn reduces pain, spams and increases natural range of motion and flexibility of the injured area(s).

Multiple Clinical Studies Have Noted The Following Results of LLLT:

  • Increased collagen production
  • Increased vasodilation
  • Increased cell metabolism
  • Increased cell membrane potential
  • Increased microcirculation
  • Increased lymphatic response
  • Enhanced nerve regeneration
  • Reduced inflammatory duration
  • Increased pain threshold
  • Reduced edema magnitude
  • Increased tissue and bone repair
  • Increasedenzyme response

Depth of Tissue Penetration

Some 30+ years of scientific study and clinical research has provided us with detailed information on the reaction of biologic organelles (cell structures) to laser light. It has also shown us which wavelengths penetrate most deeply and what energy levels effect biological processes in the most desirable manner. We need to fully understand the relationship between the depth (from the skin surface) of the target tissue and the ability of the therapeutic laser light to reach that tissue.

The light from the laser distributes in the tissue in the shape of a ball or an egg . This is dependent on the wavelength of the light. Short wavelengths give a smaller and fairly round ball-shaped distribution, while longer wavelengths give a more eggshaped distribution. The shorter 632 nm visible red wavelength is more readily absorbed by blood and skin surface components, thereby limiting its tissue penetration.

The longer 830nm invisible infrared wavelength is not as readily absorbed therefore it has significantly greater depth of penetration. A greater amount of photons are delivered to the target tissue with the 830nm wavelength.

There is now ample clinical evidence that in contrast to other wavelengths, the 830 nm laser light produces specific beneficial biological reactions that are not produced by other wavelengths. This unique ability to stimulate greater response is the key to 830nm laser therapy.

What Makes The Difference In Successful Treatment with LLLT?

The answer to this question is essentially one of penetration and delivered energy. In the treatment of soft and connective tissue injuries and disorders, the goal is to deliver the most effective laser wavelength to the target tissue.

Success Is In The Photon

One of the major contributors to the effectiveness of low level laser therapy is the exchange of energy from light photons to the biological receptor.

In order to achieve any therapeutically significant response, there has to be sufficient photons delivered to the target tissue.

The availability of photons for stimulation is a function of both the appropriate wavelength and device power output.

These two factors determine the amount of photons reaching the desired location.

In treating conditions of greater than 1 cm in depth from the skin surface, the combination of the 830nm wavelength with a 30mW output produces the optimum photon beam.

Devices using other wavelengths and the very low 5-10 mW output lack the capability to supply adequate photon energy to deep tissue conditions.

Stimulates Increased ATP Production

Laser therapy has been used by leading scientists and clinicians around the world for over 20 years. In Japan, where laser therapy is considered a preferred medical practice, Dr. Noriko Mochizuki et al published a clinical study on the effect of laser therapy and ATP production.

In that study, the scientists found that tissue levels of ATP were significantly increased when the target area was irradiated with 830nm wavelength laser light. The study further stated that this beneficial increase in ATP production was not the result of temperature modification, but rather a direct response to the effect of laser light photons.

This study also showed that while 830 nm wavelength laser light stimulated ATP increases, laser light at 632nm had no stimulatory effect on ATP production.

This study along with a host of other clinical reports confirm the singular ability of the 830nm laser wavelength to stimulate cellular responses that result in accelerated metabolism and repair.

Since ATP functions as the primary fuel for cellular activity, stimulated increases of this energy source greatly enhances cellular ability to perform and complete biological processes.

Cold Laser Results in Increased Endorphins

Clinical studies done by Dr. Laakso et al from Royal Brisbane Hospital in Australia have confirmed that significant increases in plasma levels of endorphins resulted from 830nm laser irradiation. This same study showed that low dose diation do not result in significant increases in endorphin levels.

It is also important to note that this study confirmed that the 30mW power output provides better results than the low power, 5-10 mW units in endorphin stimulation.

The ability of the 830nm wavelength to stimulate the production of pain reducing plasma endorphin levels, while other wavelengths did not, is important when clinicians are treating painful conditions.

Finding Disc Centers of America and Dr. Taylor changed my life! I was in constant pain, unable to do normal everyday... chores, and at times only able to walk with a cane. The non surgical spinal decompression therapy is pain free and so easy to do it's hard to believe it actually works, but I am living proof that it really does! Dr. Taylor and Becky are such kind and welcoming people, they make the experience so positive and enjoyable that I didn't want it to end. They really care about their patients well being and lives. Highly recommend!!!read more

Disc center has been an absolute blessing for me. I’ve been dealing with Sciatica nerve pain and lower back pain for... over 10 years now. No doctor has been able to relieve me of any pain. In just just 9 sessions of treatment, I am gaining better mobility and participation in more activities like cooking, bathing, walking and shopping. I feel like I am regaining my life again after so many years of pain. I was very depressed and felt like I had no more solutions and only options was surgery. But Dr. Taylor has giving me hope and I am regaining my confidence and my life back. So I highly recommend Disc Center for anyone suffering in back pain and sciatica. We appreciate you very muchread more

I have been receiving excellent care from Dr. Raymond Taylor at this facility since he became the owner. Dr. Taylor is... very knowledgeable about the muscular and skeletal system and can pinpoint the exact location of my pain quickly during examination. I was suffering from sciatica and Dr. Taylor has resolved it to the point that it has not returned. I recommend Dr. Taylor and continue to get an adjustment once a month and it has made a world of difference. By the way, I am 74 1/2 years old and I feel like Dr. Taylor at ProSpine Wellness keeps me going!read more

Where to begin? Dr. Taylor has great chair side manner, he’s very knowledgeable and patient. He really hears out the... problem and then works his magic finding those trigger points. Every time I leave his office I feel renewed. He also gives me pointers on how to make myself comfortable in between sessions. Another thing I love is the privacy in between patients (especially during a pandemic) patients are not scheduled overlapping each other and when you’re there you have the doctors attention which like many of us have experienced that’s not the usual case. You’re not just a number- you’re an actual patient that is cared about at Prospine wellness.Keep it up! 🙂read more

Dr. Taylor is awesome! He is very attentive and listens to what you need. He then tailors your treatment to your own... specific needs. Most chiropractors I’ve been to have just given me a generalized treatment without addressing my individual issue. I come visit Dr. Taylor every week now and it is life-changing. Best chiropractic experience I’ve ever had.read more
