The main medical applications of LLLT are reducing pain and inflammation, augmenting tissue repair and promoting regeneration of different tissues and nerves, and preventing tissue damage in situations where it is likely to occur. Combined with HBOT, this can speed up healing.
Injury, pain, illness puts our body on a budget, using a huge amount of the bodies available resources. We get tired and lose energy. That starts the downward trend.
There are around 70 billion cells in the human body, the integrity of these cells has an enormous impact on our daily lives. The cell’s powerhouse is called the mitochondria which produces ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the bodies currency for ENERGY.
Without Energy our Body’s Stop Functioning, Repairing and Regenerating!
By administering the combination of of red and Infrared wavelengths of light, we are able to energize localized tissue from skin and nerves to deeper tendons, muscle and bone, in turn triggering the repair and healing process.
Red LED light energy travels through the skin and is absorbed by cytochrome C oxidase within the skin tissue fibroblast cells. At this point, the energy from the red lights transferred into cellular energy. This plays a strong role in the production of collagen which leads to connective tissue repair and regeneration.
Blue lED light energy is a shorter wavelength and does not travel as far deep as red light. Blue light transfers its energy to hemoglobin and melanin chromophores just beneath the skin, and therefore is used more for skin-related disorders.
Near Infrared LED light is composed of longer wavelengths that are able to penetrate much deeper below the skin reaching deep into soft tissues, muscles, joints, and bone. Similar to red light therapy, this causes a transference of light energy (through cytochrome C oxidase) into cellularenergy for tissue repair and regeneration. In addition, this range of light energy allows for a quick and strong release of nitric oxide levels, which in turn causes a dramatic rise in local blood flow.
LED light therapy is a process by which energy is delivered to various parts of the body via light emitting diodes (LEDs) and is absorbed by the cells for therapeutic and healing benefits. The various energy wavelengths penetrate the skin to different depths and provide the energy cells need to activate increased circulation, healing and repair.
The three most recognized and researched light wavelengths are Red, Infrared and Blue Light, these are the 3 wavelengths combined and used in the LS ProSystem.
The more energy the body has available to spend, the faster it gets out of budget and into repair, accelerating the rate of recovery as well as optimal function and performance.
This is where LS Light Technology comes into play, studies show that near infrared light therapy stimulates the production of ATP in the body, LS innovation has combined both Red and Infrared Light together in its flexi pads.
This video shows the vital role that light plays in triggering the release of ATP (ENERGY) supporting Accelerated Recovery and Enhanced Performance.
