Mitochondria and Light

Photons of light stimulate the mitochondria to produce ATP and activate the normal biochemical response to injury and cell repair. The basic principle of laser therapy will work on the conditions of: PAIN (somatic, visceral, and neuropathic), INFLAMMATION (reduction of edema), and TISSUE INJURY (stimulation of wound healing and tissue repair).

Laser therapy has an anti-edema effect, causing vasodilation, activation of the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas), resulting in the reduction of swelling from bruising or inflammation.
