    The Role of Laser in Sports Therapy
    Author(s): Shardeshu Srivastava*

    Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (Laser) is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The light emitted by a laser is monochromatic, collimated, and coherent. A laser is a device that emits this type of light. Some physiotherapists employ low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. LLLT is a non-invasive light source treatment that emits a single wavelength. It doesn't produce any heat, sound, or vibration. Photobiology or biostimulation are other terms for the same thing. LLLT is thought to impact connective tissue cell function (fibroblasts), speed up connective tissue repair, and act as an anti-inflammatory agent. In the therapy of musculoskeletal problems, lasers with wavelengths ranging from 632 to 904 nm are employed. The use of tailored low power laser beams or light energy to the cells is .. Read More»
