532nm wavelength lasers have been used in medical research and development since the late 1960’s. Medical lasers are in use worldwide and have contributed to countless successful surgeries and procedures. While our lasers products are not directly designed for medical use, the 532nm wavelength is a very important part of the medical community and offers a wide range of applications.
First used in 1967, medical use of lasers is now common for increasing the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair; relieving pain and inflammation; improving function of damaged neurological tissue and they are often used as an alternative to needles for acupuncture.
The body’s blood is now considered to be an organ. Realize that the entire time a body part is exposed to green laser light, you are also irradiating this important “moving organ”: the blood stream. Russia has been doing such research for over 60 years, (not always laser,) with various wavelengths, mostly ultraviolet. At one time, it was the most promising treatment for bacterial infections.
Laser light does many things in the bloodstream, for example it makes red blood cells more pliable, slippery, and increases their efficiency. Also, with the laser, you need less and less of it over time! It is possible to stretch treatment gaps to 6 weeks, maybe more, with time and dedication. The fact is, you can cure yourself of many common problems, old injuries, and diseases if you can follow simple instructions. All without piles of vitamins, herbs, drugs, exercises, surgeries, etc.
The most popular medical use of lasers is for treating sports injuries. Many of the world’s elite athletes use blue laser pointer therapy to speed their recovery because: There is more published clinical and physiological evidence supporting the use of laser and LED photobiomodulation for soft tissue injuries and joint conditions than any electrotherapy modality as traditionally used by physicians and physiotherapists; It’s considered the safest “electrotherapy” available by research experts; It’s quick and simple to apply; It can be used immediately after injury, over pins, plates and bony prominences.
Laser light is coherent light. That is, it is light in which the packets of photons are all organized and marching to the same beat. Everyone has heard that lasers can blind you, which is true. A store-bought red laser pointer will always be a “near infra-red” laser in the 630-670 nm range. It is not “radiation”, like x-rays. It is not ionizing radiation, like ultraviolet light, which means that it doesn’t cause skin cancer or anything like it. It cannot affect DNA unless it is used in doses hundreds of times higher than anything I recommend.
It is just highly organized light. The only reason lasers can burn and cut is because you can use a lens in front of the red laser to focus the light. Otherwise, the light would just spread out like a flashlight. I can take a magnifying glass and use the sun to burn the same paper a focused laser would.
Applications include treatment of venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, post herpetic neuralgia (PHN, shingles) and postoperative pain. Your laser really is a remarkable tool! I have been a practicing chiropractor since 1977 and have used just about every therapeutic “bell and whistle” invented. This medical lasers (532nm) beats them all in terms of pain and swelling reduction.”
One other thing, regarding safety. If there is any chance of children finding any laser, including the small 5 mw pointers, the laser should be out of reach of children! Although the blink reflex will protect against most eye exposures, with children, you never know what they might do to themselves, others, or even pets. Safety first!
