High Intensity Laser
High-Intensity Laser (HIL) technology is based on the principle of low-level laser therapy (LLLT). High power and choice of the right wavelength allow for deep tissue penetration. A high-intensity laser offers a powerful and non-addictive form of pain management. Through a natural process of energy transfer (bio-stimulation and photomechanical effect), it speeds up healing and regeneration.

The bio-stimulation characteristic of the High-Intensity Laser is responsible for fast healing. High-Intensity Laser stimulates the tissue to faster oxygen exchange in the mitochondria and consequently increased the production of ATP. When the High-Intensity Laser treatment is applied, full motion of the shoulder is restored significantly faster than with conservative treatment.
High-Intensity Laser treatment shortens the rest phase, relieves pain, and prevents the edema to reach the chronic phase. High-Intensity Laser treats inflammation by decreasing the concentration of pro-inflammatory mediators in the area.
High-Intensity Laser features deep penetration which can get through the skin all the way to the source of pain whether its vertebrae, deep-lying trigger point, or ligament. It relieves pain by blocking free nerve endings, increasing blood perfusion of the treated area, and speeding up metabolism. All effects of High-Intensity Laser combined, lead to immediate pain relief and faster healing.
The High-Intensity Laser treats the muscle through a thermic effect and at the same time by triggering photomechanical processes on the cellular level, which cause the synthesis of extracellular agents, endothelial cells, and regeneration of the muscle and connective tissue cells.
High-Intensity Laser is typically used in two modes – pulsed and continuous. Each mode affects the tissue differently and triggers different medical effects. Overall medical effects are Bio-stimulation, pain relief, anti-inflammatory effect, superficial thermic effect, and muscle relaxation. In pulsed mode- analgesic effect, microcirculation stimulation, and anti-inflammatory effects. In continuous mode- bio-stimulation, thermic effect, muscle relaxation, recovery from nerve injury, increase bone and cartilage formation.
Laser (an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) can be used as a therapeutic device that produces monochromatic (one specific wavelength), coherent (constant phase), and polarized (directional) light. Therapeutic lasers are defined by their power and wavelength. 1064nm wavelength of the High-Intensity Laser ensures a good ratio between penetration and absorption in the tissue. The amount of power a laser can safely deliver can reduce therapy time by more than a half.
