How to Choose a Good Laser Light Therapy Machine

Laser light therapy is gaining prominence in our clinic for many, diverse patient populations. In addition to being applicable for different issues, laser light therapy is time efficient, non-invasive and gentle. More and more studies are showing that laser light therapy is useful for reducing pain and edema while helping injured tissue heal.

How does Laser Light Therapy Work?

The Laser Light therapy issues short wavelengths of light (600-1000 nm) which is able to penetrate human tissue. The light permeates through the skins layers and aids in the healing of tissues while reducing pain and swelling. Additionally, since low level laser therapy is able to deeply penetrate the skin, the immune response is elevated, creating both anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. In a nut shell, laser light therapy has been found to supply vital energy and oxygen to injured cells.

Some of the issues we use laser light therapy to address are:

  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Temporomandibular joint dysfunction
  • Cervical Radiculopathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Post ACL Reconstruction

A reliable laser light therapy machine we’ve found is the Mettler Therapeutic Laser Sys-Stim 540 LC, which is a long product name to remember but worth the effort. This top of the line laser therapy machine has many ideal features.
