How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy has become a very hot topic when it comes to pain treatment. It is a POWERFUL painkiller, because it targets inflammation, which is the source of most pain conditions and other illnesses.
The easiest way to understand how laser therapy works is to think of photosynthesis. In photosynthesis, plants use SUNLIGHT to stimulate CHLOROPLAST to give plants energy to perform all their plant-like duties.
In humans, we use a process called photobiomodulation. In this process, we use LASERS to stimulate MITOCHONDRIA to give our cells energy to perform work, like flush out toxins and push inflammation out from the site that is causing lots of discomfort.
So, basically the laser is like gas that is being put into a tank of a car. Except, instead of a tank in a car, it is mitochondria in the cell.
This is why laser therapy is so powerful and effective in treating pain and nerve conditions. The laser is stimulating the cells, so that the body can heal itself and target the area of complaint, while DECREASING inflammation and resulting in less pain. 😊
