Background & History
The instrument used to provide to this therapy is a low-level laser, this means that the energy emitted by the diodes is of a lower intensity than high power lasers used to destroy organic tissue.
Because of this property, this type of laser stimulates the organic tissue along with cell functions.
Although the mechanism of healing organic tissue is not yet fully understood by the scientific community, it is believed that in fact the energy emitted by this type of low-level lasers interacts through a complex photochemical reaction with some specialized enzymes that belong to the structure of the cellular mitochondria.
These mitochondria are of immense importance for most living organisms on Earth, human and our animal friends included. They are in charge among other functions, to act as the powerhouse of cells by producing its energy by a process known as cellular respiration.
An important range of diseases has been attributed to the damage and related dysfunction of these cell components.
Mitochondria, cellular powerhouses.
