Laser Therapy: Clinical Practice and Scientific Background Textbook
Laser therapy has an untapped potential in healthcare. The purpose of this book is to describe the physical and clinical aspects of laser therapy and to analyze the rich scientific literature in this field. The book will serve as a useful guide and reference work for research scientists, dentists, doctors, veterinary surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists and other workers within the medical field. Every indication discussed is supported by scientific references and in all more than 1400 such references are listed.
Laser Therapy - a powerful medical tool
Medicine of today is dominated by expensive pharmaceuticals and advanced technologies. Although generally very sophisticated and helpful, they cause a great number of predictable and unpredictable side effects. Laser therapy offers a safe therapeutic medical modality that is free from side effects. The unique quality of laser therapy is its universal usefulness. Even if more precise conditions such as pain, edema, zoster, paraesthesisa and herpes can be treated, laser therapy also has a general beneficial influence on the immune system, thus enabling healing processes to start. After more than 30 years of use, no harmful side effects have been reported.
Laser therapy has for some persons an aura of magic through its ability to heal longstanding medical problems. To other persons it has an aura of “alternative” medicine through the allegedly poor scientific foundation. Both categories will find that they are wrong. Laser therapy is no magic, and the rich scientific documentation will certainly surprise the unbelieving.
The Authors are Jan Tuner, DDS and Lars Hode, Dr. Sci
