Monday, April 01, 2013

Following on from the first blog post LLLT in the Immediate Treatment of Sports Injuries, from Club to Olympic Athletes

LLLT affects living tissue through multiple pathways, these pathways include, segmental and systematic effects

Local effects include actions at the site and time of irradiation:

1. Effects on locally generated ATP through the respiratory chain of mitochondria

2. Polarisation on the eucaryotic cells membrane lipid bi-layer

3. Influences on the formation of singlet oxygen that neutralises free radical action and

4. Influences on the permeability of fascial layers, inducing the passage of debris and haematoma from the injury site
