Labindia Healthcare Pvt. Ltd. brings to you a series of FDA approved deep tissue therapy lasers, both for medical and veterinary applications, from the stable of a world leading therapeutic laser manufacturer LiteCure® LLC (http://www.litecure.com/). These machines utilize class IV lasers, which in comparison with their class IIIB counterparts give higher power output, and work with a broader laser beam ensuring uniform administration of clinically effective energy density to target tissues. All the products are certified to meet ISO-9001 and ISO-13485 standards for medical devices.
Why Laser Therapy?
We all dread physical pain. It comes in many forms: a sore wrist of a keyboard champion, an aching heel of a homemaker, a grandfather’s stiff knee preventing him from sitting cross-legged, and an athlete’s musculoskeletal injuries caused by sustained overuse. Similarly, our non-human companions suffer from various painful conditions like cuts, bites, arthritis, and painful dental pathologies.
All these painful conditions call for a variety of treatments including hot/cold compresses, electrotherapy, physiotherapy, painkillers, steroid injections, and nerve blocks. While some of these modalities are quite effective in relieving pain, many have serious side effects, especially pharmaceutical agents. Low level light therapy (LLLT; now know as ‘Photobiomodulation’) has expanded this realm of pain management. It not only effectively eliminates pain; it also enhances tissue healing and regeneration, with no side effects.
The basis of deep tissue laser therapy is a phenomenon called ‘photobiomodulation’ (PBM), which is a nonthermal process involving endogenous choromphores, which display photochemical reactions upon interaction with laser energy resulting in beneficial therapeutic outcomes.
This involves absorption of photons by cytochrome c oxidase (an enzyme complex of the electron transport chain of mitochondria), leading to its activation upon release of inhibitory nitric oxide (NO) molecule binding to its catalytic site, and subsequent surge in intracellular ATP production. NO is a potent vasodilator, which improves local microcirculation and lymphatic drainage.
The above reactions stimulate pro-survival cellular metabolic pathways, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue healing.
In addition, the thermal effect due to the light absorbed by biomolecules like melanin, hemoglobin, and water gives a sensation of soothing warmth.
