Research clearly documents the ability of low level laser therapy (LLLT) to improve healing. There are also a number of studies that validate the ability of laser therapy to heal cardiac, brain, nerve and thyroid issues.
This animal study adds to this knowledge by demonstrating improved liver healing. The study investigated the effect of laser therapy on liver regeneration following removal of 70% of the liver (hepatectomy). It was found that the number of regenerated cells, blood vessels and immune cells was 2 to 3 times higher in the laser-treated animals! The researchers concluded that laser therapy following acute hepatectomy stimulates a significant enhancement of liver regeneration.
This study helps to pave the way for future use of laser therapy to stimulate regeneration of many parts of the body in addition to laser’s common use in the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal injuries.
