Why Now is the Time to Use Low Level Laser Therapy
Photobiomodulation is using light to cause healing change in living cells. It is the process of how our bodies react with light.
New advancements in technology has allowed this modality of medicine to become understood, researched and studied, creating a FDA approved, safe and effective tool allowing consumers the ability to treat themselves and their pets for pain, inflammation and injuries in the comfort of their own home.
Scientist, Veterinarians, Medical professionals and sports teams, have been using powerful low light laser units since the 1960’s. The development of Multi Radiance Medical (MRM), Super Pulsed technology, has allowed for the elimination of the excessive heat created by Low Light Laser Units , and opened the path for further investigation and double blind studies. The results are not only independently documented, but more than 400 thousand units are in use in more than and 30 countries and 20,000 practices, and the numbers are growing daily. These new, safer devices were given a new name by the National Library of Medicine, and now Photobiomodulation, or PBM and PBMT are now considered the terms of choice for this important and effective use of the application of therapeutic light.
Why MRM Super Pulsed Technology is Superior to Cold Laser, continuous wave Therapy.
There are many different types of light therapy units available, each incorporates different light sources and wavelengths. Wavelengths are the path each color of light uses and can be focused as in a laser. All light therapy units can be beneficial, but our cells respond better to certain wavelengths, and the power of a focused laser light allows for depth of penetration.
Multi Radiance Medical Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT)units are FDA approved and scientifically proven to bring results. MRM PBMT units use super pulsed technology and specific wave lengths of light to stimulate tissue up to 5 inches below the skin, allowing for deep tissue and orthopedic healing. When injured, the body produces ATP or Adenosine triphosphate at a cellular level and begins the healing process. The use of Photobiomodulation directs light energy to the injured cells which helps produce more ATP, speeding up the healing process and eliminating the inflammatory substances that cause pain and scar tissue. Photobiomodulation does not produce damaging thermal effects like continuous wave low level lasers therapy units or surgical lasers.
A study published in the Journal of Athletic Training (March 2017) by the Sports Medicine Institute, University of Caxias do Sul, Brazil, showed that the Super Pulsed Light Laser, Photobiomodulation units, made by Multi Radiance Medical are safer and more effective then continuous wave low light laser units.
How do you use it?
Whether you have a chronic or acute injury Photobiomodulation can help your cells improve the healing process, while relieving pain and reducing inflammation.
- Turn on the portable, cordless unit, by pressing and holding the white power button while holding the light emitter against the palm of your hand.
- The Unit will do a self diagnostic and the lights will flash
- Choose setting option using red selection button for below settings
- setting #1 (50 Hz) Reduces inflammation, increase circulation and promotes healing. Use this setting for healing injuries
- setting #2 (250 Hz) Promotes healing, stimulates bone repair, reduces pain from arthritis and improves healing of muscle and tendons. Use this setting for rebuilding healthy tissue.
- setting #3 (1000-3000 Hz) Reduces edema, provides pain relief and deactivates trigger points. Use this setting for pain
- Lightly press white power button and release. The 5 minute timer will start and the laser light emitter will begin flashing.
- Hold against skin. If painful area is larger then emitter then a scanning technique can be used by slowly moving the unit back and forth and forward in a shallow zig-zag pattern. Increase dose time to account for the larger surface area.
Yes, it really is that easy.
The Core of the Pain Away / My Pet Laser
· 15,000mW of Peak Super Pulsed Power
· Super Pulsed Laser (905 nm),
· Ultra-bright Broadband infrared,(875 nm)
· Visible Red (660 nm)
· Magnetic Induction 35 mT
Using this synergy of three wavelengths and the magnetic field, provides MRM lasers with the most effective depth of penetration, up to 13 cm (>5 inches) in a safe and efficient manner.
Practitioners all over the world rely on MRM photobiomodulation devices to keep their clients on their feet. MRM PBM units are used in 80% of Chiropractor Schools world wide. Professional sports teams, Veterinarians, and Oral Surgeons have found the quick, easy and cordless application of these units to shorten the healing time and reduce pain to help their patients and clients get back to doing what they love.
Long before we became a civilization connected to light for energy, information and guidance, We needed sunlight for optimal health and “As noted by photobiologist Alexander Wunsch, humans are adapted to sunlight as a complex stimulus that, at the appropriate dosage, helps keep our biological systems running.” In fact, studies have shown that light from the sun provides benefits that go far beyond vitamin D synthesis, even colors of light have effects on our mood and energy.
In the late 1800’s the use of red light was the treatment for smallpox and well before the advent of antibiotics, sun exposure was the standard treatment for Tuberculosis, recent studies have found that a vitamin D deficiency sets off the disease if you are a carrier.
With the discovery of Antibiotics, and the development of modern medicine, these standard treatments were set aside as witchcraft and all but forgotten. In 1917 Albert Einstein proposed that light could be focused to a particular wavelength, but it would take nearly 40 years for scientist to prove his theory and begin to put lasers on the path of becoming the universal and versatile tool that they are today.
If it works, then why is this technology not mainstream?
Until recently, Light therapy units were difficult to adjust and dangerous to use, with the possibility of dermal burns, these units were sold only to professionals. The FDA regulates all medical grade light therapy units and classifies them as to how dangerous they are with a Class I being the safest and a Class IV the most dangerous. Multi Radiance Medical lasers have been given a Class rating of I by the FDA making these the safest and most powerful, medical grade, light laser therapy units available.
MultiRadiance Medical has been developing this breakthrough technology for almost 25 years now and have made tremendous gains all over the world. With the current drug crisis here in America, and the abuse of pain killers, it is hard not to imagine the good this technology can do for many suffering from chronic pain.
Many Veterinarian and Chiropractor colleges are now teaching this technology as part of their graduate studies. Until the medical profession is able to reduce its dependency on the pharmaceutical industry, and streamline the current insurance mess, therapy with light will remain elusive in medical offices across America.
Fortunately, this technology is safe enough for you to use in the safety of your own home. Protocol manuals are available and a simple “cheat sheet” can help guide you in the proper setting to use.
Before purchasing a light or a laser light therapy unit for your at home use, please do your research. If you are looking for relief for orthopedic (arthritis) issues or deep tissue pain, there are not any units that can compare with the power and penetration of MRM laser units in such a safe and convenient package.
