• Laser Therapy is a time-density modality.
Spectra Therapy has found that these treatments, when
delivered every 4-6 hours for the first 48 hours after any trauma,
provide the best response to restore metabolic balance, provide
infection-free wound closure, as applicable, and minimizes edema. We
have also discovered that simultaneous treatment of arteries, veins,
tissues and meridians provide most effective therapeutic benefit to
Examine for yourself the benefits and uses of laser therapy for
these applications that have been proven in numerous clinical trials
with positive results and no
known side effects.
Laser Therapy has an anti-edema effect as it causes
vasodilation, but it also activates the lymphatic drainage system
(drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in
swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
Laser therapy has a highly beneficial effect on nerve cells
which block pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which
decreases nerve sensitivity. Due to less inflammation, there is less
edema and less pain. Another pain-blocking mechanism involves the
production of high levels of pain-killing chemicals such as
endorphins and enkephlins from the brain and adrenal gland.
Stimulated cells also produce nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
Tissue Repair and
Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and
accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. Laser light increases
the energy available to the cell so it can take on nutrients faster
and get rid of waste products. A result of exposure to light, the
cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair faster.
Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new
capillaries that speed up the healing process, close wounds quickly
and reduce scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of
angiogenesis, which causes temporary
vasodilation and an increase in the diameter of blood vessels.
Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater
oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points
Laser Therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture
points on a non-invasive
basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
Laser Therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue
damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.
Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in
numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process
of nerve cell reconnection and increase the amplitude of action
potentials to optimize muscle action.
Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulation of immunoglobines and lymphocytes. Chromophores (molecular enzymes)
react to laser light. The enzyme Flavin mononucleotide starts the
production of ATP (adenosine-tri-phosphate), which is the major
carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical
reactions in the cells.
Laser light stimulates the development of fibroblasts, the cells
that manufacture collagen. Collagen is the essential protein
required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries.
As a result, laser therapy is effective on open wounds and
