This post will outline some of the reasons this home laser device is a unique pain relief solution for all the family. But first let's take a look at what pain is and the role of inflammation in the body, then we will cover the mechanisms of laser therapy action.
What is Pain?
The International Association for the Study of Pain uses the definition: "Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience with actual or potential tissue damage". So pain is seen as a symptom of an underlying condition. Inflammation in some form in most cases is usually this condition.
What is the function of inflammation in the body?
The function of inflammation is to take out the cause of cell injury in the first place, clearing out necrotic cells and tissue damage from the original injury of the inflammation process, which in turn initiates tissue repair in the body. Let's now look at the mechanisms behind this.
Mechanisms of Laser Therapy in Tissue
The mode of action can be seen in the figure above, with the outcome of exposing damaged cells to the low level laser light is the production of three important molecules associated with healing of inflammation are being enhanced.
ATP is the main energy source for living cells and by increasing its levels the cells are capable of healing inflammation.
ROS at small amounts is stimulating muscle contraction and cell growth.
NO is a potent vasodilator which increases circulation in the inflamed tissue and enhances transport of oxygen and immune cells into the tissue.
"These mechanism of action are obtained when exposing cell to soft laser light. High powered laser is not applicable as this type of laser is causing excessive heating of the skin along with upregulation the apoptosis pathway. Soft laser stimulates healing while high powered laser inhibits healing of inflammation."

What Makes the Handy Cure s' Home Laser so Unique?
The laser is a medical device designed to combat pain and inflammation for home use.
It is a combination device of four energies:
1. 905nm Low level pulsed infrared laser
2. 875nm Infrared LED light
3. 635nm Visible red LED light
4. Static magnetic field
These four energies when combined together are affecting the healing of inflammation resulting in the relief of the pain.
"Adding Magnetic Field to the device was shown (Friedman et al, Laser Therapy 18.3:134-141, 2009) to amplify the healing effect of the laser pulse. The photo-magnetic synergy enhances electron transfer and activation of respiratory chain in the mitochondria which in turn enhance ATP production and cell proliferation. It is not achievable if the laser light or the magnetic field are separated." Professor Samuel Edelstein
"I use the Handy Cure in my chiropractic office for many different conditions. I have used more powerful lasers, more expensive lasers* -- but the Handy Cure does a fantastic job on my patient's conditions. It is easy to use... so easy that some of my patients have purchased ones for home use. I have 350 doctors in my group and many have purchased the Handy Cure to help even the most difficult patients. Powerful, easy to use and inexpensive is a winning combination". Dr Craig S. Ross, D.C., Developer of Neuro Cranial Integration, CA, USA
Conditions that respond well with the laser at home
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Muscle strain
- Muscle tendon pain
- Wrist injuries
- Achilles tendon
- Shoulder pain
- Tennis elbow
- Ankle pain
- All musculoskeletal pain and more...
Summary of what makes this a one of a kind device
This medical device is a unique home laser device for fighting pain, reduce inflammation, and healing.
The simple pre-programmed five minute treatment session once or twice a day is sufficient to observe an effect within days, depending on the condition. Every patient is different so the three week home treatment regime should be followed to achieve maximum results.
This low level laser device is the only device which utilises 4 different energies in combination which was shown to affect inflamed tissue very effectively. There are no side effects associated with the use of this device and very few contraindications which makes it ideal to use at home to treat all those niggling pains and respond to treat acute injuries as they happen.
