Low Level Laser Therapie - LLLT
The first medical applications of laser technology were carried out just a few years after the development of the laser in 1960. The Hungarian Endre Mester, a pioneer in laser medicine, investigated the effect of low-energy laser radiation on improved epithelialization of poorly healing wounds in 1963. These studies are the first publications on Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). Low level laser therapy uses laser devices that work with low-energy (low level) laser diodes. These laser types usually work athermally. The effect is photochemical (biostimulative). It is making the cell produce more energy (ATP) and like that there is faster healing possible.
In contrast to surgical lasers, these are getting hot, they are used to cut the skin.
The LLLT is not only udes for wound healing but also for treating tendons, working on scars wich are often causing problems in the hole body (think of the castration scar on your geldings). A lot of scars are making that energy can not flow correct through the body.
Also LLLT is used for acupunctuur without needles and it is working great!
Places with a lot of tension treated with LLLT are often much softer and its also used in Pain-Therapie.
