The ML830: 

The ML830 The ML 830® is a non-thermal laser capable of penetrating deep into tissue FDA market clearance received in early 2002 ML 830® is marketed to U.S. medical doctors, physical therapists, hospitals, clinics, occupational therapists, athletic trainers and chiropractors. Stimulates nerve function & cell metabolism Non-invasive 12 years and $4 million of clinical research for FDA.

What is Cold Laser Therapy?: 

What is Cold Laser Therapy? Handheld, battery operated, light emitting, non-invasive medical device. Low energy, non-thermo, non- destructive therapeutic laser Produces infrared laser light through 3 semiconductor laser diodes at a continuous wavelength of 830 nanometers

The Treatment Process: 

The Treatment Process Cold laser therapy stimulates improved vascular, lymphatic and enzymatic activity, which increases collagen synthesis and production, satellite cell presence and cellular metabolism resulting in the enhanced healing of the damaged skeletal, connective and neurological tissues and structures. The laser works to speed up the normalizing processes of the body by targeting three basic body function systems the nerve network, the lymphatic system, and the blood circulatory system.

How Does the ML 830 Work?: 

How Does the ML 830 Work? The Ml 830 is a GaAIA laser with an 830 nanometer wavelength and a power output of 90 milliwatts at this wavelength and power the Ml 830 can penetrate approximately 5cm with a 3cm spread. The Ml 830 is a non-thermal laser capable of penetrating deep into tissue. The delivered energy promotes the process of photo-biostimulation.The resulting photochemical reaction produces an increase in cell metabolism rate that expedites cell repair and vascular systems. The net result is a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema, and reduced healing time.

How It Works: 

How It Works Recent experiments prove the 830nm beam is absorbed in sub cellular organelles, increasing their capacity to do what they do well beyond their normal state. Demonstrated in lysosomes and mast cells increasing, in a very short time, the density of cell produced proteinous substances in the blood and lymphatic systems due to the laser induced excellulation of these components.

How It Works: 

How It Works The various immunoglobins, histamine, seratonin, and macromolecular units such as the prostaglandin complex are systematically carried around the body by the blood and the lymphatic circulatory systems which produce a successive series of reactions in the body. In addition nerve fibers have now been shown to have photo sensitive components confirming irradiation on neural physiochemical functions is becoming a scientific reality.

Why 830 Nanometers?: 

Why 830 Nanometers? Depth of penetration Delivered energy Clinically proven over 30 years, laser wavelengths below 800nm and above 850 nm quickly decrease in penetration and absorption levels.

Wavelength Comparison: 

Wavelength Comparison The optical window is 830nm. Wavelength experiments show peak penetration effect between 820-840nm. Diode lasers show to be superior in penetration to LED, SLD, and others

Wavelength Depth and Penetration: 

Wavelength Depth and Penetration

Wavelength and Depth Penetration Summarized: 

Wavelength and Depth Penetration Summarized As the wavelength changes so does the depth of penetration. With the use of infrared and visible light sensitive charge coupled device based camera (CCD) to assess actual depth and volume penetration. Tendons, ligaments and muscle tissue lie beyond the reach of other wavelengths. Only an 830nm laser has the ability to reach, in order to provide healing, to the damaged and injured cellular components.

Treatment in Motion: 

Treatment in Motion Example the body’s natural reaction is to splint an injury with edema, preventing excessive movement.The pain is therefore of two types, actual insult pain to the injured tissue, and a secondary pressure pain from the edematous swelling. The target here is first the lymphatic system which increases the reabsorption of the edema, then the actual injury site. All three systems are treated to speed up the natural healing process in the damaged tissue, reduce the injury pain, and increase the mobility, which in turn speeds up the healing process. Once the interrelationships have been understood this therapy will become clearer and consistently good results will be achieved.

Cold Laser Applications: 

Cold Laser Applications Muscle disorders/acute conditions i.e.myosistis, muscle contusions, dermatitis Skin diseases/disorders i.e. surgical incisions, Burns, Skin ulcers Nervous system disorders i.e. Prolapsed Disc, Neuritis, Paralysis Bone Disorders i.e. Fissures, Fractures, Spondylosis Joint disorders/injuries i.e. Ligament injury, TMJ, Arthritis, Strains Vascular Disorders i.e. Lymphadentitis,Hematoa,Tissue infiltration Inflammatory conditions i.e. Carpal tunnel, Plantar fasciitis Pain management i.e. Fibromyalgia, Cervical pain

Advantages: 

Advantages Precision for immediate localized action Lasting effect which accompanies cold laser treatment Cold laser treatment has been shown to have a cumulative therapeutic effect with longer lasting post irradiation results after successive treatments.

The Crux of it All: 

The Crux of it All There is more published clinical and physiological evidence supporting the use of laser therapy for soft tissue injuries and joint conditions than any electrotherapy modality as traditionally used by PT’s. It’s considered the safest of “electrotherapy” available by research experts. It’s quick and simple to apply. Can be used immediately after injury, over pins, plates, and bone protrusions.

Training and Certification: 

Training and Certification Approximately 3 hours of in clinic training Laser basics Laser use Treatment protocol Laser safety Technicians will be certified with the American Society of Laser Therapy

Reimbursement: 

Reimbursement Insurance Codes 97039 97032 95925 95926 98948 Application of a modality, low level laser, requiring constant attendance each

Endorsements: 

Endorsements “The New England Patriots won Super Bowl XXXVIII with some help from a little-known form of laser technology that could change the way athletic injuries and chronic pain are treated.” The Light Stuff - Washington Post, February 17, 2004 By Lois Lindstrom Olympic Committee welcomes new laser device for treatment regimens Santa Monica, CA-January 27, 2004 MicroLight's FDA Clearance: The ML830® is a low-level laser device classified by the FDA "For Adjunctive Use in Pain Therapy" including temporary relief from minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis, muscle spasm, relieving stiffness and promoting relaxation of muscle tissue, and indicated for use in the temporary relief of hand and wrist pain associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
