to improve your surgery recovery time and reduce pain and scarring after surgery naturally? Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been very successful for aiding post operative surgery wound healing as it can reduce pain and reduce scarring. The treatment utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with the cells of the body. Each cell in the body has an ability to respond to different frequencies of light, measured in Hertz or hz. Cold lasers donate energy/photons to cells, which in turn stimulates the mitochondria to produce more ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) or in laymen’s term, ENERGY. More ATP energy helps the body heal faster from surgery. In the best selling guide Recover Quickly From Surgery, we list a number of natural treatments that are clinically shown to reduce pain and swelling after surgery. The Cold Laser treatments are highly effective and can be administered by physicians, chiropractors, naturopaths and other health care professionals.
The effect? Cellular healing to include improved function of organs and glands, reduction of inflammation and enhanced healing of a variety of injured tissues from surgery. LLLT has no reported adverse effects. There are a variety of kinds of lasers varying from small handheld to larger units with multiple applicators.
How does cold laser therapy work?
The laser heads are placed over injured tissues including wounds, incisions, contusions, and swollen joints. With professionally used lasers, specific frequencies are programmed and may run in sequence or simultaneously.
LLLT may also be used on acupuncture points and are specifically powerful when used as auricular therapy. There are corresponding acupuncture points that relate to organs in different states of health or disease. These entry points are closer to the brain and may be instantly effective when specific frequencies are administered.
The Benefits Of the Cold Laser for After Surgery:
There are areas on the body that have a direct and specific effect on organs when stimulation provided by the laser is applied. The Cold Laser, therefore, can be used to:
1. stimulate a detoxification process in the body, aiding the elimination of toxins such as anesthesia or pain medication,
2. Can boost immune function,
3. Can reduce pain,
4. Can reduce inflammation, promote healing and improve function in almost every aspect of the body.
Because the cold laser is able to re-establish nerve pathways, it enhances the healing process and decreases inflammation at the site of involvement.
As a Santa Barbara, California based chiropractor for over 25 years, I have seen some miraculous healing using laser therapy.
Recently, I have had several patients who have undergone major abdominal surgery, leaving sizable incisions with expanded bruising. Normally these incisions would take weeks to heal and for the bruising to subside. Within three visits during a one week period, the wound was almost completely healed with a thin scab that formed at the incision. In each case, the bruising reduced within the 10 minute treatment time. The patients concurrently presented with abdominal pain and tenderness that resolved by the end of each laser treatment.
They noted that healing progressed and accelerated both during and after the treatments and slowed when the laser was not applied for a week.
In other cases, patients have presented with significant wounds resulting from accidents, to include severe abrasions and jagged lacerations. The wound on the right presented with a significant area of skin abraded off of the knee joint. Notice the depth of the wound as well the surface area. There are signs of eminent infection. These shots are roughly 2.5 weeks apart. As the scars surface area reduced with each treatment, the affected skin returned to normal with no scarring.The laser was instrumental in not only accelerating the healing of the wounds, but reducing obvious signs of inflammation around the wound.
The third case of LLLT healing has to do with peripheral neuropathy. One patient presented with bilateral numbing of the feet. After ten treatments over several months that included laser therapy and adjusting his lumbar and sacral spine, he noted that symptoms were 75-80% improved in both his feet and other areas of the body.
Other rewarding applications of the laser helped patients who had undergone facial surgery, both elective and mandatory. In each case, the scars were reduced to appear only as thin lines on the face and could only be noticed only upon close examination.
These are only a few examples of the success of cold laser treatments.
