When cells are stressed, nitric oxide (NO) inhibits oxygen consumption by mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase. This reduces production of ATP and causes oxidative stress leading to increased inflammation and reduced production of ATP. LLLT displaces NO from cytochrome C oxidase thereby reducing inflammation and restoring ATP production, healing tissues more quickly.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a laser or LED light therapy that improves tissue repair (skin wounds, muscle, tendon, bone, nerves), reduces inflammation and reduces pain wherever the beam is applied.
Yes, high power density is necessary for analgesic and deep tissue targets, lower power density is necessary to promote healing and reduce inflammation in superficial wounds, tendons and joints. ATP Therapy use both high and low power density for best healing, deep penetration and analgesia.
Significant reduction of inflammation equal to or better than NSAIDs within 2 hours, analgesic effects that last to 48 hours, healing time of chronic tendinopathies reduced by 70%.
