Laser Therapy for Pain - Wyckoff, New Jersey

Thor LLLT/Photobiomodulation Therapy

There is substantial clinical evidence published in peer reviewed medical journals that laser therapy (LLLT)/Photobiomodulation Therapy can stimulate repair of tissue, reduce inflammation and relieve pain in musculoskeletal disorders.

LLLT works predominately on a protein in mitochondria (cytochrome c oxidase) to increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress. A cascade of mitochondrial and intracellular downstream effects lead to improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation.

How LLLT / Cold Laser / Photobiomodulation Therapy works

Lasers and LED's produce intense beams of light at specific wavelengths. When the right wavelength at the right intensity is used at the correct anatomical location for the right amount of time you can stimulate repair, resolve inflammation and reduce pain.

One of the primary mechanisms is the effect of light on cytochrome c oxidase and the consequently the unbinding of nitric oxide and release of ATP leading to improved cellular function. For anti-inflammatory effects we have found a measurable reduction in PGE2, TNF Alpha and IL-6 in the synovia surrounding damaged tendons and for analgesia high intensity lasers over nerve supply can inhibit fast axonal flow.

In addition, high intensity single point lasers can release trigger points and treat acupuncture points instead of needles.
