 Low-energy laser irradiation has positive effects on bone fracture healing, osteoblast proliferation, bone nodule formation, and alkaline phosphatase activity. However, the mechanism by which low-energy laser irradiation affects bone is not clearly known. It was recently found that light at a low radiation dosage is absorbed by intracellular chromophores. High-intensity pulsed laser irradiation can produce acoustic waves in the target surface by rapidly heating the tissue. We considered that… CONTINUE READING
