LLLT = Low Level Laser Therapy
LLLT has been demonstrated to be both safe and effective in cases where biostimulation is deemed helpful. Biostimulation is the stimulation of biological elements and systems. I focus on chronic conditions, as opposed to acute conditions. I have very little experience with acute conditions, because my early personal experiences increased scar tissue deposition, and I only use LLLT for scratches and cuts, but not for anything worse. The same goes for strains and sprains; I do not use LLLT for new strains or sprains. This is because of the risk of too much scar tissue deposition. I know the research shows that it is helpful for such, but it should be done by a sports-related healthcare provider who has experience and training in the use of LLLT on acute conditions.
I don’t usually see those kinds of cases. Regarding the spine, I generally stay away from the spine with LLLT because of the relatively small risk of an aggravation of osteoarthritis. I know that the research says otherwise, but I find that OA generally becomes aggravated when illuminated with LLLT. I must say that I don’t have the best and latest equipment.
Soft tissues are much easier to illuminate with no negatives and reliable positives. Since I am a chiropractor, I am limited to using treatments such as the one below on only myself. It is interesting to me, because I have already treated myself in the past for the same problem.
This is a synopsis of a Russian research paper which demonstrated that LLLT and famitodine was a good combination for treatment of Primary chronic gastroduodenitis (PCG):
Buy this book and you’ll know what to do…
Welcome to my blog! In this blog, I will be attempting to encourage visionary people all around the world to consider trying coherent light therapy on themselves at home. I will be backing up my book “Rejuvenation” here. The reason I named this blog “The DelRe Protocols” is because my book gives clear directions, (protocols,) for using an inexpensive laser pointer to save thousands of dollars in medical and dental bills. It is simply a cheap, safe, drug-free way to achieve relief from diabetic neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, bursitis, postural hypotension, adrenal exhaustion, low thyroid function, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and really, the list is as endless as the potential for morbid, (sick,) cells to exist in your body. As you can see by the list of laser therapy books to the left of the screen here, this is not new. In fact, it has been researched and used around the world for 40 years now, with over 2400 peer reviewed published papers which investigate an amazing range of uses for low level laser therapy.
Another study shows the advantages of LLLT and dental implants.
Boy, I love this stuff. Too bad there’s no money in it…
When it come to LLLT and orthodontics, positive evidence is consistent.
While I have assumed that low level laser therapy applied to orthodontic treatment would be beneficial, it is still gratifying to see research such as this:
A short clip: “The inflammation markers inducible NO synthase (iNOS), cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 and interleukin (IL)-1 showed stronger expression in 5 and 10 J/cm2 therapy at days 1 and 5, but decreased in expression at day 7.”
While I don’t pretend to understand all of the above, what I do recognize is that the “healing cascade” took about 7 days. Based on all previous study of mine, this would mean that a safe illumination frequency would be one treatment per week. Regardless of their dosages used, I would stick with my conservative dosage of 1-2 joules of energy per area of 9 square centimeters.
