What to consider when purchasing a Laser Therapy Device: What the Experts Say:

“Treatment with laser therapy is not based on heat development, but on photochemical and photobiological effects in cells and tissues.”

-Tuner & Hode, 2010, pg. 71-The New Laser Therapy Handbook

“…more than 95% of the laser therapy described in the literature is performed with lasers in the <100mW range.”

-Tuner & Hode, 2010, pg. 549-The New Laser Therapy Handbook

“…energy loss due to the skin barrier for continuous HeNe (632nm) laser is 90%, for continuous GaAlAs (820nm) and Nd:YAG (1064nm) lasers, 80% and for GaAs (904nm) infrared pulse laser, 50%.”

-Bjordal J, Couppe C, Chow R, Tuner J, Ljunggren E. A Systemic Review of Low Level Laser Therapy with Location-Specific Doses for Pain from Chronic Joint Disorders. Aust J Physiother. 2003;49(2):107-116

“if insufficient energy is applied there will be no response…” “but when too much energy is applied then the stimulation disappears and is replaced by bioinhibition instead.”

-Huang YY, Chen AC, Carroll JD, Hamblin MR. Biphasic dose response in low level light therapy. Dose Response. 2009 Sep1;7 (4): 358-83

“In general, fluences of red or NIR as low as 3 or 5 J/cm2 will be beneficial in vivo, but a large dose like 50 or 100 J/cm2 will lose the beneficial effect and may even become detrimental.”

-Huang et al; Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA

“GaAs laser is most effective in the treatment of pain, inflammation, and functional disorders in muscles, tendons, and joints (epicondylitis, tendonitis, myofascial pain, etc.) and for deep lying disorders in general.”

-Tuner & Hode, 2010, pg.54-The New Laser Therapy Handbook

“There is strong clinical evidence to support the use of laser therapy on myofasical trigger points. Decreases in muscle rigidity, spontaneous pain relief and improved range of motion and pain thresholds have all been demonstrated by laser therapy applications.”

-DAVID J. ALVAREZ, D.O., and PAMELA G. ROCKWELL, D.O., Trigger Points: Diagnosis and Management. Am Fam Physician. 2002 Feb 15;65(4):653-661

“Low level laser therapy improves local microcirculation, supplying hypoxic cells in the trigger point areas with improved oxygen supply and removing collected waste products. The normalization of the microcirculation, obtained due to laser applications, interrupts the “pain/spams cycle”

-Simunovic Z. Low level laser therapy with trigger points technique: a clinical study on 243 patients. J Clin Laser Med Surg. 1996 Aug;14(4):163-7.

“The effects can be seen in as little as one application and can have lasting effects”
