The RJ-Physiolaser Olympic device is a medical class 3B laser. It is the latest generation leading-edge technology in low levels laser therapy (LLLT). Laser Therapy is used in the treatment of a range of musculoskeletal complaints.
The use of low levels of visible or near infrared light for reducing pain, inflammation and edema, promoting healing wounds, restoring deeper tissues and nerves, and preventing tissue damage has been known for almost 40 years.
Mitochondria are the site for the initial effects of light, leading to increased ATP production, modulation of reactive oxygen species and induction of transcription factors.
These effects in turn lead to increased cell proliferation and migration (particularly by fibroblast), modulation in levels of cytokines, growth factors and inflammatory mediators, and increased tissue oxygenation.
Research shows the results of these biomechanical and cellular changes in animals and patients include benefits as;
- increased healing of chronic wounds,
- improvement in sports injuries, and carpal tunnel syndrome,
- pain reduction in arthritis and neuropathies and
- amelioration of damage after heart attacks, stroke, nerve injury, retinal toxicity and improving cognitive function.
Depending on the wavelength, the laser energy will be absorbed by the targeted tissue and cells. The correct wavelength is important and calibrated according to indicated tissue treated.
This is an ideal passive systemic therapy method that is classified as risk-free and suitable for all patients.
