Laser and LED Therapy Actually Accelerates Healing of Injured Tissues, rather than masking the symptoms with medications.
These light therapies stimulate cellular functions to produce vital chemicals necessary for damaged tissues heal on their own, without interference from pharmaceuticals.

LED Light Therapy

Our Clinic uses a state-of-the-art pulsed LED light therapy systems. Flexible neoprene pads are placed on the skin over an area of pain, injury, or where support and increased circulation are needed. Therapy pads contain brilliant red, blue and near infrared LED's that penetrate deeply into tissues for rejuvenation. Resulting increases in circulation allow more energy and nutrient rich blood to reach challenged areas and promote wellness and pain reduction.

Demonstrated Benefits of LED Light Therapy as seen in LLLT research:

For The SKIN:

·        Minimize fine lines and wrinkles

·        Regenerate collagen production

·        Speed healing of blemishes

·        Improve skin elasticity and tone

·        Reduce redness

·        Acne blemishes

·        Age spots and sun damage

For the BODY:

·        Pain

·        Circulation

·        Burning, Stinging, Numbness

·        Edema

·        Reduce Inflammation

·        Soft Tissue Injuries

·        Back, Neck and Joint Pain

·        Increases ATP production (cellular energy) 

For The MIND:

·        Emotional stress

·        Memory issues support

·        Traumatic brain injury support

·        SAD

·        Emotional Lift

·        Improved Sleep

 

The LED light system is a photo-modulated (pulsed, light emitting diodes) device also known as low-level light therapy (LLLT). The infrared and visible red are the heart of the LED  therapy system, providing gentle but powerful non-coherent light. This system uses a carefully timed sequence of settings, known as pulses, to create an environment in which change may occur more rapidly.

History of Light Therapy

In Ancient Times

For some time it has been known that light can affect the growth and metabolism of

organisms, from simple unicellular microorganisms to multi-cellular plants and mammals, and

can have a variety of beneficial therapeutic effects. Indeed, sunlight in heliotherapy dates to

1400 BC and has been practiced for several centuries in many countries, including ancient

Rome, Greece, and Egypt (Roetlandts, 2002).

Around 1900 AD

Around 1900, light therapies had moved from the use of direct sunlight to the use of filtered

sunlight and artificial light sources, fluorescent tubes and carbon-arc or quartz lamps for

example. Early applications of light for therapeutic purposes included treatment of skin

diseases and ulcers, syphilis, lupus, pellagra, wound healing, and tuberculosis. (Roetlandts,

1991)

NASA Space Technology Shines Light on Healing

Release 00-336 December 18, 2000

“Dr. Whelan’s NASA-funded research has already seen remarkable results using the light-

emitting diodes to promote healing of painful mouth ulcers caused by cancer therapies such

as radiation and chemotherapy. The treatment is quick and painless.”

“The red light penetrates to the inside of the mouth, where it seems to promote wound healing

and prevent further sores in the patient’s mouth.”

“They reported a 40 percent improvement in patients who had musculoskeletal training

injuries treated with the light-emitting diodes.”

Who Has More Recently Studied and Used LED Light Therapy?  

It was the space program and NASA that prompted renewed interest in light therapy, using

LEDs to enhance the growth of plant tissue in space – lack of gravity keeps cells from growing

naturally. The plants grew, and by coincidence [zero] gravity induced symptoms in the

astronauts – loss of bone mass, atrophied muscles and wounds that do not heal – were also

reduced.

“NASA scientists have found that cells exposed to near-infrared light from LEDs, which is

energy just outside the visible range, grow 150 to 200 percent faster than cells not stimulated

by such light. The light arrays increase energy (ATP and nitric oxide) that speed up the

healing process.”

— NASA LED Technology Press Release

This technology has been used by physicians, NASA, Navy Seals for muscle regeneration

and healing of wounds. The Navy Seals’ program found the return-to-service rate was 41%

faster with LEDs [LED light therapy]. Additionally, many institutions such as John Hopkins,

Stanford, and the Mayo Clinic have studied and used LEDs for various healing benefits.

What Is So Significant About Nitric Oxide?

 Nitric oxide was named “Molecule of the Year” in 1992 by the journal Science, but it took

another 6 years for those responsible for the major discoveries surrounding it to win the Nobel

Prize. Three US scientists – Robert Furchgott, PhD, Louis Ignarro, PhD., and Ferid Murad,

MD – received the 1998 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine.

The infrared photo energy stimulates nitric oxide from the hemoglobin and possibly

surrounding tissue. Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule that is known to relax smooth muscle

cells found in the arteries, veins, capillaries, and lymph vessels. When these muscles relax,

they dilate blood vessels, thus allowing increased circulation. Nitric oxide has also been

shown to be essential for wound healing, even if chronic or traumatic.

Nitric oxide is a chemical involved in many normal body functions as well as disease

processes. Besides being a strong dilator of the blood vessels (which allows an increased

blood flow), it is known to promote immune system function and wound healing. It is

particularly useful because it is difficult for bacteria to develop resistance against it. Nitric

oxide attacks a range of targets in bacteria, including DNA, cell wall lipids, proteins and

enzymes. In order for bacteria to develop resistance, it would have to change at each of those

attack sites. In its gaseous form, nitric oxide has been used to treat infected wounds.

LED light therapy provides infrared photo energy to help facilitate the many benefits

described above and many others.  — Drs. Furchgott, Ignarro, Murad and Burke  

What About Promoting Cell Regeneration, and Stimulating Collagen  

“The treatment is especially effective at improving the appearance of the face, neck and

chest, by reducing signs of aging, wrinkles and age spots.”

— Web M.D. Health

“Six weeks of treatment with LED’s can significantly improve the appearance of fine lines.”

— In Style Magazine/Sept.2008]
