Acute musculoskeletal disorders and pain originating from them is something every person faces once in their lifetime regardless of age or activities one does. Immediate treatment of such injuries can lead to prevention of chronicity, other complications or even the necessity of surgical intervention. In case of painful conditions a number of traditional approaches have to be postponed until the pain subsides, or adjusted so the patient doesn’t feel pain while being treated. High Intensity Laser technology presents an immediately available option with great results in treatment of such functional disorders.
High Intensity Laser technology is based on a similar principle as the Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) yet with dramatically faster and more intense results of pain relief, biostimulation, healing and regeneration. The output power is 30 – 50 times higher than the one of LLLT which shortens the therapy time needed. Where LLLT acts mostly superficially the selection of the 1064nm wavelength within the biological optical windows allows for deep penetration into the tissue.
The High Intensity Laser can operate in two modes – continuous (the laser beam is emitted continuously) and pulsed (the laser beam is emitted in pulses with a pause in between). In pulsed mode with high repetition rate the laser is capable of creating unperceivable pressure which reaches the free nerve endings and inhibits them for transfer of painful feeling. Continuous mode on the other hand causes biostimulation (ability to stimulate tissue growth and repair at cellular level) in the tissue together with thermic effect which causes vasodilation and consequent muscle relaxation.
