Laser Therapy

What is Biostimulation Laser (BSL)?

Treatment with laser radiation is a safe method of therapy that causes regenerative processes in tissues. Doctors and other medical professionsals have been using Biostimulation Laser Therapy to treat both new and chronic conditions since the 1960's.

Professional athletic teams use BSL therapy on their athletes. What was once for the elite has now become available for the general public.

Treatment parameters are adapted to specific disease entities, and the effectiveness of treatments depends on their appropriate adjustment. Different low dose lightwave radiation wavelengths and energy doses are used for various conditions.

How does BSL help patients??

BSL increases the production of oxygen to the area being treated. This helps the body remove damaged cells and increase the healing time.

Low-level laser therapy has the following effects:

  • Antiedematous (Redness)
  • Anti-inflammatory (Swelling)
  • Improving microcirculation
  • Accelerating tissue reconstruction
  • Stimulating immune processes

In addition, the effect of using BSL is, among others, increased endorphin level, increased sodium-potassium pump activity, increased ATP, DNA and RNA synthesis, more efficient absorption of lymphoedema, increased phagocytosis and angiogenesis, and increased number of mitochondria in a cell (faster cell metabolism).

What can BSL help?

This safe method has a number of applications in physical therapy. Indications for the use of laser biostimulation are such diseases as:

  • Degenerative joint changes
  • Degenerative spine changes
  • Neuralgia
  • Subacute and chronic conditions of tissues
  • Subacute and chronic conditions of joints
  • Lateral epicondylitis (Golfers Elbow / Tennis Elbow)
  • Gout
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Muscle pain due to injury
  • Calcaneal spur
  • Fractures, sprains, dislocations
  • Nerve paralysis
  • Hard-to-heal wounds

Treatments using the beneficial properties of lasers are currently used, among others, in dermatology, dentistry, sports medicine and cosmetology.

Certain conditions are not suitable for BSL, please see our FAQ section for information.
