LASER AND HEART DISEASE

Laser therapy might be helping heart tissue regenerate Low level laser therapy for the treatment of damaged organs One very intriguing area of study is the use of low level laser therapy (LLLT) for the treatment of damaged organs, specially the heart, liver, pancreas, and brain. In this animal study the researchers looked at the potential for low level laser therapy to protect the heart against damage from myocardial infarction, a severe form of heart attack. Laser therapy decreases damaged heart tissue One day after giving the animals a heart attack, the groups either received laser or sham radiation. The results showed that there was a significant decrease in the amount of damaged heart tissue in the animals who received low level laser therapy (LLLT). Also, the researchers discovered the mechanism that protected the heart from damage. They noted that a number of cytokines, small cell-signaling protein molecules, were changed by the laser therapy (LLLT). Their results revealed a potential novel mechanism for applying laser therapy to the treatment of heart disease!

CAN LASER HELP CANCER PATIENTS?

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) and cancer Studies have proven that low level laser therapy (LLLT) reduces the symptoms of oral mucositis, which are terribly painful mouth sores caused by the toxic effects of chemotherapy. However, unlike these previous studies, the researchers in this experiment wanted to assess if there was any improvement in the Quality of Life of patients receiving radiation and low level laser therapy (LLLT) for head and neck cancer. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) and Quality of life Sixty patients were studied and objective tests were performed to assess the patient’s Quality of Life during radiation treatment for cancer. Quality of Life was defined as a composite of many factors including pain, function of the head and mouth, anxiety, and physical appearance. Low level laser therapy (LLLT): Positive effects The results showed that there was a significant improvement in the Quality of Life of the patients who received low level laser therapy (LLLT). So, unlike our worries about low level laser therapy (LLLT) negatively influencing the lives of cancer patients, these newer studies are showing POSITIVE effects. To date, these positive studies have all used cool lasers, not hot ones. At the present time, because research […]

LASER REDUCES SHOULDER IMPINGEMENT

Laser therapy and shoulder Laser therapy for subacromial syndrome Subacromial syndrome is the most common cause of impingement syndrome, the inability of the shoulder to elevate above the head. The cause of this impingement is usually shoulder tendinitis and rotator cuff damage. The most common treatments are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and exercise therapy. Recently, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) was tested to see if it improved the results when used in conjunction with an exercise program. Laser therapy reduces pain In this study 80 human patients received laser treatment or placebo and exercise therapy for ten sessions over a 2 week period. This study proved that low-level laser therapy (LLLT) combined with exercise produced a statistically significant increase in range of motion and a significant decrease in pain compared to the group that did not receive low-level laser therapy (LLLT) treatment. This is one more study proving that low-level laser therapy (LLLT) plus exercise is more effective than exercise alone. Now we know why so many professional and elite athletes demand low-level laser therapy (LLLT) treatment for sports injuries. It is proven to improve performance! Clin Rheumatol. 2011 oct 30.

LASERS FOR LOVE HANDLES?

Lasers melts fat ? Lasers reduce inflammation, pain and stimulate tissue healing We know that lasers are a valuable tool to reduce inflammation, pain and stimulate tissue healing. Yet, there is a lot of confusing information about the therapeutic effect of extremely lasers in the range of 5 to 30 milliwatts for fat reduction. High powered hot lasers dissolve fat This clinical trial described and evaluated the effectiveness of the Erchonia “Zerona” Laser System for fat reduction and body contouring. Circumference measurements revealed no statistically significant reduction in fat. Ultrasound measurements also did not reveal a statistically significant reduction in fat layer thickness. Research does document the effectiveness of high powered, hot lasers to dissolve fat which can then absorbed by the body. Cool lasers have been proven to make tissue look better but we believe that is due to its effect of stimulating collagen production. I am sorry to say that there is no proof at the present time that cool lasers can get rid of those love handles! Lasers Surg Med. 2011 Feb;43(2):114-21.

CAN LIGHT THERAPY HEAL EYE DAMAGE?

Laser therapy for eye damage ? Low level laser therapy not damaging Many of us worry about the possibility of cool lasers causing eye damage. This is an interesting study because it supports past research that cool or low level laser therapy (LLLT) and LED light are not damaging to the eyes. Laser therapy heals cellular damage In this study, rats were raised in dim light and then exposed to bright continuous light for 24 hours to create eye damage. Then, the animals were treated with 670nm light at the dose of 9 J/cm². As you might expect, the bright light caused damage to the rats’ eyes. Of interest is the fact that the cool, infrared light treatment or low level laser therapy healed the cellular damage. The researchers expressed the belief that infrared light is protective against light induced retinal damage even when it is applied after exposure. They also expressed the belief that it has the potential to become an important treatment to prevent or treat light damage to the retina. The researchers also felt that it could be beneficial in the prevention and treatment of retinal conditions involving many inflammatory mechanisms. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. 2011 Mar […]
