High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT)
Regenerative healing in overdrive.
What is High Power Laser Therapy?
High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT) is now widely recognized as a safe, pain-free and non-invasive medical procedure to accelerate the treatment and rehabilitation of various acute and chronic pain conditions. HPLT devices are used in hundreds of medical facilities through the United States, including prestigious medical schools as well as the Department of Defense, the VA system, the NBA, NFL and MLB.
HPLT offers patients a painless, non-surgical and side effect free treatment for conditions previously refractive to traditional medical care. The mechanism of action for laser therapy comes from its ability, at the cellular level, to “bio-stimulate” tissue growth and repair.
This results in accelerated wound healing as well as a dramatic decrease in pain, inflammation and scar tissue formation. Unlike all other treatment modalities, laser therapy actually “heals” tissue, providing a powerful non-addictive form of pain management.
Additionally, multiple studies have shown that HPLT safely and effectively activates stem cells without any detrimental effect upon the stem cells whatsoever. Laser therapy causes stem cell activation at the target site of photonic stimulation, where stem cell proliferation has been shown to occur along with the maintenance of cellular viability. Laser therapy also enhances stem cell procedures by accelerating articular cartilage regeneration, pain reduction and reduction of bony edema just to name a few of the numerous synergies between the two procedures.
How does HPLT work?
Class IV Therapeutic Lasers stimulate cell function photochemically, rather than thermally as is the case with surgical lasers. This is due to the ability of chromophores, components of molecules, to absorb light. By stimulating the chromophores on mitochondrial membranes, it is able to incite the production of ATP, which leads to protein synthesis, resulting in a biological cascade of events which increases growth factor response within cells and accelerates cell reproduction. The primary biological effects include accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, faster wound healing, reduced scar tissue formation, anti-pain, anti-inflammation, and finally and most interestingly, increased stem cell activation.
