A laser can be a powerful tool

We often think of weapons when we hear the word "laser". And a weapon is just what a laser can be - a weapon against pain and disease.

This book gives readers an introduction to laser medicine in general and to laser therapy in particular, although it should also serve as a useful guide and reference work for research scientists, doctors, dentists, veterinary surgeons and other workers within the medical field. Every indication discussed is supported by mini-abstracts, and reference is made to over 1,000 scientific sources.

Readers will find that laser therapy is an effective treatment for many types of disorder. It is painless and devoid of risk and is now fast gaining international recognition as a valuable form of medical treatment. Laser therapy has been well documented. Today, nearly 100 positive double-blind studies have been published on the effects of the therapeutic laser, so that treatment by laser can no longer be regarded merely as a form of alternative medicine.

The method itself is not particularly new - the first reports on laser photo-stimulation in animals and humans date back to 1967.

As an orientation, a chapter on surgical lasers has also been included in the book. The book also includes contributions by the following laser therapy experts:

  • A report on the effects of LLLT on spinal cord injuries by professor Semion Rochkind (Israel).
  • An abstract of the dissertation of dr. Shelly M. Khullar (Norway) at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Oslo, Norway, 1997, titled "Reinnervation after nerve injury: the effects of low level laser treatment".
  • Low Level Laser Therapy of innner ear diseases, by dr. Lutz Wilden, Germany. This innovative therapy brings new hope for patients suffering from tinnitus and new opportunities for therapists.
  • Dr. Rainer Karthein (Germany) analyses the transfer of light energi to the mithochondria in the cells.
  • A breif information about laser acupuncture by dr. Talat Qadri, Sweden

  • Finally, we have included 146 references to scientific studies of Professor Tiina Karu.
