Orthopedic and Physiotherapeutic Indications

Orthopedic conditions which may respond positively to laser needle treatment include cervical syndromes, coxarthritis, epicondylitis, fibromyalgia, gonarthrosis, lumbar syndrome, Morbus Bechterew, periarthritis humerus scapularis, polyarthritis, spine syndromes, rhizarthritis and tendinitis.

Besides pain relief, the regenerative effects of the laserneedle irradiation in bone and cartilage may be of particular importance. Osteonecrotic bone has been documented to be regenerated by direct laser needle irradiation (Morbus Ahlbäck, Morgus Osgood Schlatter). What is exciting is that laser needle irradiation has been shown to enhance significantly the metabolism of osteoblasts, cells which lay down new bone – without influencing osteclasts, the cells which resorb old bone. As a result, the equilibrium of bone production-reduction may be shifted to favor the bone tissue producing side of the equation, and increased mineralization as well as stabilization and strengthening of cartilage with enhanced synthesis of hyaluronic acid and proteoglycans has also been found.

How may  laserneedles may be applied for these indications?

  • Laserneedles may be placed along the affected articular gap or osteonecrotic area.
  • Treatment may be administered for approximately 30 minutes  x 15-20 visits with 2-3 treatments per week.
  • 5–20 treatments may induce long-standing, regenerative effects.

Acupuncture

Needles are important for each kind of acupuncture.  Laser needle stimulation may be qualitatively different yet have efficacy similar to traditional needle acupuncture.   Both treatments may complement one another.  To see a comparison between laser needle acupuncture and needle acupuncture, visit Lasers and De Qi.  The stimulation of laser needle acupuncture is achieved via HED (High Energy Density)- s equivalent to that of metal needles. In addition, the HED laser needles generate restorative, non-specific effects in the tissue. The cerebral and peripheral effects of laser needle acupuncture have been scientifically investigated and published in more than 50 peer-reviewed publications. Acupuncture treatments with laser needle touch are painless, side-effect free and very popular for children and adults

Due to their double efficacy, the laser needles reach therapeutic effects, which are superior to the classic metal needle acupuncture. Any point combinations of 10 acupoints can be stimulated simultaneously. The point selection criteria are in accordance with the TCM and the same compared to the classic acupuncture. You will reach very good therapeutic results in the treatment of low-back pain, joint pain and allergical and neurological diseases.

The laserneedle touch devices contain a data bank with all therapeutic and diagnostic frequencies according to Nogier, Bahr, Reininger. The new laserneedle touch device contains the “frequency mixing mode”, developed in cooperation with Dr. Reininger: Each laserneedle can be programmed with a different frequency. For a quick and efficient pulse diagnostics, a new “diagnostic mode” is available and can be activated.

Pain Therapy

A particular new approach in pain therapy is Transcutaneous Optical Nerve Stimulation (TONS)  Laser needles are fixed on the painful area and activated in a low-frequency modulation mode, 2-100 cycles per second.  In addition to having analgetic effects whicm may be similar to TENS (electrical nerve stimulation), laser irradiation induces an increase of cellular energy in the target tissue by enhancing ATP synthesis, increasing  oxygenation and improving capillary blood flow.

Wound Healing

The advantages of red/infrared laser irradiation treatments for wound healing disorders, in particular therapy resistant diabetic ulcus cruris, are well described and documented in the literature.

Our new therapeutic approach combines the additive effects of red and blue laser light and contains three components:

  • Laserneedle irradiation of the surrounding area with four red LASER NEEDLES to increase the arterial, venous and lymphatic circulation in the area around the ulcus.
  • Direct, bichromatic irradiation of the ulcus with the KOLINA Spot, equipped with 3 red LASER NEEDLES and 1 blue laserneedle, to eliminate any staphylococcus contamination in the wound and to enhance the metabolism of fibroblast cells.

Longstanding, completely therapy resistant ulcus cruris venosum, treated with KOLINA spot. Patient, m, 56 y, healing process after 4 treatments within a period of one week

Skin Diseases

Our new laser needle phototherapy is based on the recent results of modern dermatological research. The basic principle of our method is to irradiate the affected skin areas simultaneously with blue and red laserneedle radiation of high energy density. The effects of the red laser radiation in the skin are well known, increased cellular energy (ATP synthesis), improved microcirculation of blood and lymph and enhanced oxygenation and effects on metabolism during the non-specific irradiation of the skin tissue. In these ways and others, red laser light improves the overall regenerative capacity of the skin.

Blue laserneedle radiation (405 nm specifically) has considerably different biological effects. At sufficient energy densities, immunological and anti-bacteriological effects are induced. The immunological effects are the inhibition and reduction of Langerhans cells and IgE + Langerhans cells, the inhibition of dermal mast cells and the inhibition and reduction of T-Lymphocytes. The activity and number of T-lymphocytes, which are infiltrated in the skin is influenced and decreased directly by the 405 nm radiation. A decrease of bcl-2 proteins after radiation, which acts as apoptosis inhibitor, has been reported in the literature.
From the bacteriological point of view, 405 nm irradiation has a highly efficient eliminating effect on poryphyrins-based bacteria such as Proprionibakterium acne, Staphylococcus aureaus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Due to their specific immunological and anti-bacteriological effects, the 405 nm laserneedle radiation appears to be the optimum choice to treat the atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, vitiligo and acne vulgaris. The immunological and bacteriological pathogenesis of these indications are quite similar.
In contrast to the established UVA1 phototherapy, treatment with 405 nm laserneedle irradiation is completely UV- free (e.g. all possible carcinogenic risks are eliminated!). In particular for the treatment of children, 405 nm radiation is safe, side-effect free and free of any risks, even for longer treatment times!

Skin Rejuvenation

Biological skin rejuvenation by integrative laser treatment. New, non-invasive method, based on a patented laser-comb, which emitts trichromatic laser light (red, blue and infrared)

2-step- procedure:

  • Step One: Hyaluronic acid filling and cross-linking of the molecules by 4 color laser comb
  • Step Two: Phytotherapy to induce the formation of new collagen 1 and Elastin
  • Alternatively: photodynamic therapy to invcrease the number of collagen 1 fibres in the dermis.

Dentistry

Periodontosis and periodontosis prophylaxis

Periodontosis and Periodontosis prophylaxis by effective and non-invasive elimination of porphyrin-based bacteria such as Porphyromonas gingivalis and Prevotella intermedia without any added chemicals – just by blue laser light! Efficiacy is almost 100 %, due to the strong Soret-Band Absorption of blue photons in the bacteria.

Noninvasive Pain therapy

The stimulation of trigger-points and acupuncture points by KOLINA-dental leads to an increased release of neurotransmitters due to a specific activation of the pain centers in the hypothalamic area.
The pain-inhibiting effects are persistent and pronounced.
The application of KOLINA needles for analgetic treatments does not require any additional qualification, simple graphic instructions allow successful treatments after few exercises.

Indications:

  • Nausea and vomitting
  • Post-surgery pain treatments
  • Neuralgias
  • Psychosomatic disorders
  • Relaxation treatments

Pediatric Indications

The advantages of the painless laser needle treatments can be felt in particular in the treatments of children. The painless and side-effect free character of laser needle micro therapies is essential in pediatrics. The children experience laser needle acupuncture and laser therapy as pleasant and efficient methods. Accompanying medications for inflammatory conditions, joint diseases or skin diseases with antibiotics can often be reduced significantly.

Acute and chronic Tinnitus – the laserneedle-music therapy

The laser needle method of treatment of tinnitus was developed in clinical studies in collaboration with Univ. of Heidelberg (Germany), Graz and Innsbruck (Austria). It combines three aspects:

  1. Repair of lesions of the cochlea and of the inner hair cells by direct, high intensity red laser irradiation of the inner ear and mastoid.
  2. Induction of alterations in the prefrontal cortex and in the limbic system( these areas are relevant for the consolidation of the tinnitus) by stimulation of relevant acupoints
  3. Simultaneous acoustic masking by relaxing music therapy.

The treatment should be repeated 3 x per week in the first two weeks and can be reduced to 2 x per week in the weeks 3, 4 and 5. All together at least 20 treatments must be carried out.
