Cold Laser Therapy

1.) Anti-Inflammation:  Laser therapy has an anti-edema effect as it causes vasodilatation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas).  As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.

2.) Anti Pain (Analgesic):  Laser therapy has a high beneficial effect on nerve cells which blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which decreases nerve sensitivity.  Also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema and less pain.  Another Pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and encephalin from the brain and adrenal gland.

3.) Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth:  Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth.  The laser light increases energy available to the cell so that the cell can take nutrients faster and get rid of waste products.  As a result of exposure to laser light, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles are repaired faster.

4.) Improved Vascular Activity: Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly, and reduces scar tissue.  Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis, which causes temporary vasodilatation, an increase in the diameter of blood vessels.

5.) Increases Metabolic Activity:  Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.

6.) Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points: Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.

7.) Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.

8.) Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs.  Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle.

9.) Immunoregulation: Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulation of immunoglobins and lymphocytes.  Laser therapy is absorbed by chromophores (molecule enzymes) that react to laser light.  The enzyme flavomono-nucleotide as activated and starts the production of ATP (adenosine-triphosphate), which is the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical reactions in the cells.

10.) Faster Wound Healing: Laser light stimulates fibroblast development (fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, which is predominant in wound healing) in damaged tissue.  Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries.  As a result, laser therapy is effective on open wounds and burns.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Paul is also extremely knowledgeable about health and fitness and has given me great advice in those areas too. In addition to feeling better and earning a degree I have lost about 25 pounds since I first came to see him. I am active physically every day. I do yoga about five times a week and walk daily. Partly because of this, I feel 15 years younger than I did when I first came to see him. Also, when I feel pain I understand that something is wrong and I now I know that discomfort does not have to be a way of life. Even though I feel younger, vital and healthy again I still see Dr. Paul regularly to maintain my health. While I no longer live in Novi and have a 60 mile commute to his office, I am still one of his patients. I always look forward to my visits with Dr. Paul. He is always smiling, positive and encouraging."
