How does Cold Laser Therapy reduce pain?

100 Million Americans suffer from chronic pain, according to Web MD. 

 
The 8 Key Methods by Which Cold Laser Therapy Induces an Analgesic Pain Relieving Response:
 
1. Increase in beta endorphins
2. Increased nitric oxide production
3. Decreased bradykinin levels
4. Ion channel normalization
5. Blocked depolarization of C-fiber afferent nerves
6. Increased nerve cell action potentials
7. Increased release of acetylcholine
8. Axonal sprouting and nerve cell regeneration
 
1. Increase in beta endorphins
 a) The localized and systemic increase of this endogenous peptide, after laser therapy
irradiation has been clinically reported in multiple studies, to promote pain reduction.
 
2. Increased nitric oxide production
 a) Nitric oxide has both a direct and indirect impact on pain sensation. As a neurotransmitter, it is essential for normal nerve cell action potential in impulse transmission activity.
 b)And indirectly, the vasodilation effect of nitric oxide can enhance nerve cell perfusion and oxygenation.
 
3. Decreased bradykinin levels
 a) Since Bradykinins elicit pain by stimulating nociceptive afferents in the skin and viscera, mitigation of elevated levels through laser therapy can result in pain reduction.
 
4. Ion channel normalization
 a) Photobiomodulation promotes normalization in Ca++, NA+ and K+ concentrations, resulting in pain reduction as a result of these ion concentration shifts.
 
5. Blocked depolarization of C-fiber afferent nerves
 a) The pain blocking effect of therapeutic lasers can be pronounced, particularly in low velocity neural pathways, such as non-myelinated afferent axons from nociceptors.
 b) Laser irradiation suppresses the excitation of these fibers in the afferent sensory pathway.
 
6. Increased nerve cell action potentials
 a) Healthy nerve cells tend to operate at about -70 mV, and fire at about -20 mV. Compromised cell membranes have a lowered threshold as their resting potentials average around this -20 mV range.
 b) That means that normal non-noxious activities produce pain.
 c) Laser therapy can help restore the action potential closer to the normal -70 mV range.
 
7. Increased release of acetylcholine
 a) By increasing the available acetylcholine, Laser Therapy helps in normalizing nerve signal transmission in the autonomic, somatic and sensory neural pathways.
 
8. Axonal sprouting and nerve cell regeneration
 a) Several studies have documented the ability of laser therapy to induce axonal sprouting and some nerve regeneration in damaged nerve tissues.
 b) Where pain sensation is being magnified due to nerve structure damage, cell regeneration and sprouting may assist in reducing pain.
