The Benefits of Healing Lasers
The advent of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) created an entirely new and increasingly popular drug-free healing method. By stimulating your cells’ mitochondria, LLLT tools like our Class IV healing laser put your own natural healing capabilities into overdrive. Signature Health and Wellness Center provides care across the state of New Jersey, bringing the healing power of therapeutic lasers to those who need it.
How Lasers Encourage Healing
Your body’s cells rely on their mitochondria to produce energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and the rate at which mitochondria can output ATP is more often than not the limiting factor for how fast wounds can heal. That is to say: if your mitochondria could be induced to output more energy, you would be able to heal faster.
Some behavioral changes can help your mitochondria out and help you heal faster, like getting enough sleep. Your body releases hormones that encourage healing while you sleep because it can spare the energy you would otherwise be using to go about your business. Eating foods that encourage healing is also a good way to help, but that can only go so far. At some point, you’ll hit the limit of how well your body can heal itself.
Non-invasive tool like Class IV healing lasers induce mitochondria to release far more ATP and other healing factors than they otherwise would, doing so without causing you any harm.
Therapy lasers can be applied to almost any surface and sub-surface injury or wound in order to spur healing there. They’ve long been used to help patients heal damage and alleviate symptoms in ways like:
- Faster healing
- Pain relief
- Reducing inflammation
- Reducing scarring
- Muscle relaxation
- Relieving muscle spasms
- Relieving joint stiffness
- Relieving minor arthritis symptoms
What Is A Class IV Healing Laser?
Therapeutic lasers come in a variety of sizes and laser power levels, which are indicated by their laser class. Compared to other classes, class IV healing lasers have the largest treatment area, allowing the laser to cover more of your body than any other. It also produces the highest incident energy and is the strongest healing laser on the market.
