BE YOURSELF AGAIN

Low Level Laser therapy does not heat or damage tissue, unlike high intensity lasers. Many pharmacological treatments mask pain or only address the symptoms of the disease. Low Level Laser Therapy treats the underlying condition or pathology to promote healing. This means that the treatments are effective and the benefits of laser therapy are long lasting.

NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES

Neurodegenerative diseases are a group of chronic, progressive disorders characterised by the slow loss of neurons in localised areas of the central nervous system (CNS). A healthy brain enables the normal, routine functioning of everyday life.

NEUROINFLAMMATION

Neuroinflammation (inflammation in the CNS), a prominent feature shared by various neurodegenerative diseas    es, has been increasingly implicated in these diseases. An acute insult to the CNS triggers rapid microglial activation, the principal component of neuroinflammation.

DEMENTIA

Dementia is a collective of progressive neurological diseases that impact memory, cognitive function, logic and motor functions. Vitamin deficiencies and thyroid disease are reversible conditions that cause symptoms of dementia but do not necessarily imply the presence of the disease.

PARKINSONS DISEASE 

Parkinson's disease is a slow-advancing extrapyramidal motor disorder that occurs due to brain cell death occurring inside an area known as the substantia nigra. In Latin, "substantia nigra" translates to "black substance" and is a section of the brain that houses thousands of neurons.

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

Multiple sclerosis is a demyelination illness of the CNS and Spinal cord. The immune system targets the myelin sheath that protects the fibre nerves. When the myelin sheath is the subject of attack, a communication error between the nerves and brain occur. The level of damage depends on the extent of injury to the nerves and the types of targeted nerves.

STROKE

Rapidly developing clinical signs of focal (or global) disturbance of cerebral function, with symptoms lasting 24 hours or longer or leading to death, with no apparent cause other than of vascular origin

CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROME

Evidence-based approaches to managing pain, including clinical practice guidelines, randomized controlled trials, webinars, and educational resources. Specific examples of evidence-based techniques mentioned include low level laser therapy (LLLT) for acute neck pain and musculoskeletal pain, as well as phototherapy for peripheral nerve regeneration and functional recovery. To access more detailed information on these techniques, the reader is encouraged to download the relevant PDFs.

AUTISM

There is some evidence suggesting that low level laser therapy (LLLT) may have potential benefits for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Specifically, LLLT has been shown to have positive effects on various ASD-related symptoms, such as irritability, hyperactivity, and sleep disturbances.

FIBROMYALGIA

A systematic review and meta-analysis of research studies on low level laser therapy (LLLT) for Fibromyalgia has been conducted. The review suggests that LLLT may have potential benefits for managing Fibromyalgia symptoms, such as pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbances.

ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM (EEG)

 

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that measures electrical activity in the brain using small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to the scalp.

 

EEG is an essential tool that studies the brain's electrical activity and remains an essential paraclinical tool for seizure evaluation.

 

EEG can also play a role in diagnosing other brain disorders.
