Biological Effects of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

This Deep Tissue Laser Therapy triggers a biological cascade of events that lead to an increase in cellular metabolism in which it suppresses inflammation, promotes analgesic effect (pain blockers), accelerates tissue repair and cell growth, significant increase in oxygenation as well as re-innervation of nerve cell and stimulation of fibroblasts for rapid wound healing.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Used to enhance pain management, anti-Inflammatory, speed healing and activation of growth factors. It focuses on individuals who have undergone surgeries to improve the healing process and individuals with acute and chronic conditions. The main categories of conditions are degenerative diseases, neurological disorders, bone fractures, wound healing, post invasive trauma and post routine procedures for rehabilitation.

For instance, conditions which can be treated in Orthopedics are osteoarthritis, intervertebral disc disease, fractures, bone spurs, post-surgery of knee, hip, spine, bone grafts and soft tissue injuries. Meanwhile for Neurology, this DTLT has been studied for numerous conditions that include stroke (including acute embolic stroke, ischemic stroke), traumatic brain injury, neurodegenerative diseases, spinal cord injuries, peripheral nerve regeneration and trigeminal neuralgia.

Biological effect of DTLT


  • Reduction of inflammation through activation of lymphatic drainage
  • Stops pro-inflammatory mediators causing inflammation and pain
  • Vasodilation increases circulation and boosts oxygenation for healing


  • Erythema
  • Bruising
  • Edema

2. Analgesic Effect

  • Produces a suppression of nociceptors which blocks pain at the treatment site
  • Increases pain threshold thus reducing pain perception
  • DTLT stimulates tissue endorphins, a feel-good hormone at the site of treatment

3. Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth

  • Photon energy penetrates deeply into tissue and accelerates cellular reproduction and activates growth factors
  • Light energy available to the cells enable increased uptake of nutrients and gets rid of waste products more quickly

4. Improved Vascular Activity

  • Laser Light significantly INCREASES the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue
  • This speeds the healing process from increase in oxygen and nutrients

5. Increased Metabolic Activity

  • Photon energy allows chemical complexes within cells resulting in activation of enzyme systems, repair proteins and energy delivered into cellular metabolic processes

6. Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points

  • Helps to stimulates muscle trigger and acupuncture points without mechanical invasion to provide musculoskeletal pain relief

7. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation

  • Reduces the formation of scar tissue

8. Improved Nerve Function

  • DTLT accelerates nerve cell regeneration

9. Immunoregulation

  • Stimulation of immune response
  • Light energy is absorbed by cells thus generating ATP, the energy source for all chemical reactions in the cells

10. Faster Wound Healing

  • Stimulates fibroblast development and collagen production essential for replacing damaged tissues with repair proteins
  • DTLT is effective on open wounds, non-healing diabetic ulcers and burns

How it works

  • Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs.
  • This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
  • Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated.
  • Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing.
  • You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
  • Depending on the condition being treated your therapy may be administer through either a contact or non-contact hand piece.
  • The contact hand piece is designed to allow the practitioner to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment.
  • This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact hand piece due to its ability to displace tissue through a laser-massage technique.
