FAQ's About Laser Therapy
HOW DOES LASER THERAPY WORK?
Laser Therapy is the use of laser energy to create therapeutic effects. Research has shown that these effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. When laser light is absorbed by living tissue, it triggers biological reactions in the cells. Chemical substances are produced, released and carried to other parts of the system. In this way, the effects of cold laser light create broad systemic effects.
HOT VERSUS COLD LASERS?
There are two broad categories of lasers, HOT and COLD. Hot lasers are used for surgery, skin resurfacing, destroying tumors, and, when the power is lowered, for pain relief. The Apollo Laser used by Dr. Gremmels is a safe powerful cold laser. Research documents pain reduction, reduction in inflammation, increase of circulation and the release of tight muscles that create chronic pain
IS LASER THERAPY SAFE?
The FDA has cleared laser therapy for the treatment of many pain syndromes. The investigation of a broad array of conditions has been completed and more are presently underway. The FDA considers laser therapy to be safe and effective when used properly.
