The Pilot Diode Laser is easy to learn and exceptionally versatile. Simply by varying the power level, pulse mode and distance from the site, you will be able to perform a wide range of therapeutic procedures. It creates an intense beam of light energy that moves through a fiber-optic cord. When it enters the targeted tissue, the energy is converted into heat. This heat is responsible for increased blood flow to the location treated to reduce pain and inflammation.
For many rehabilitation procedures, the Pilot Diode Laser is a versatile tool. Its technology gently increases cellular energy that accelerates the body's self-healing capabilities, allowing you to heal safely and quickly. Laser light is able to penetrate deeper into the tissue than from other sources. Thus deeper tissues benefit from the direct generation of heat from the laser light, rather than relying on transmission of heat through the surface tissues down to the deep tissue.
The Pilot Diode Laser is ideal in delivering powerful laser energy to treatment areas, greatly improving the healing process and offering advanced laser treatment. You will quickly benefit from a therapist using the Pilot Diode Laser. Here is just a brief sample of the procedures that your therapist can use the Pilot Diode Laser for:
Chronic Pain Syndromes (neck, back, knee, etc.)
And so many more...
Treatments will vary greatly from patient to patient. The number of treatments will greatly depend on the location and the severity of the injury. Some conditions may only require a couple of visits, while others could use the Pilot Diode Laser spaced a few days apart for longer periods of time. Typically the first few treatments are spaced a few of days apart for the first couple of weeks. After this if you are still having pain, please consult with your therapist about scheduling your visits. Treatments usually will take anywhere from 5 - 20 minutes and depend on the condition being treated, size of the area and depth of the condition. During the treatment there should not be any discomfort. You should feel a warm soothing sensation.
