Red Light Therapy Can Promote Callus Growth and Accelerate Fracture Healing
Fracture refers to the complete or partial break of the continuity of the powder structure. It is more common in children or the elderly. When a fracture occurs, the surrounding tissues, such as skin, muscles, blood vessels or nerves, are damaged to varying degrees. The main reason is direct violence. Caused, called traumatic injury.
If the bone road itself is diseased, such as osteoarthritis and bone tumors, the fracture is called pathological fracture. The main symptoms are deformity and abnormal activities, bone friction sound, etc. The three principles of treatment are reduction and fixation exercise. Improper treatment of fractures may cause damage to motor function, affect life and work, and even cause many complications, such as swelling and muscle atrophy. , pressure sores, deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities, etc.
When red light is used to treat adult fractures, it can reduce swelling, relieve pain, and heal wounds. It can also improve immunity, prevent wound infection, and more effectively promote fracture healing.
The principle of red light therapy is that the mitochondria in the cells absorb the red light the most, which increases the catalase activity of the mitochondria, promotes the metabolism of the cells, increases the glycogen content, increases the protein synthesis and the decomposition of adenosine triphosphate, thereby strengthening The metabolism of cells promotes the growth of callus and accelerates the healing of fractures. It also increases the phagocytosis of white blood cells and improves the immune function of the body.
Wang Yan reported that 90 cases of closed fractures of extremities were treated with red light therapy apparatus. After red light treatment, the pain was significantly lighter than that of the control group (P<0.05), and the swelling of the affected armpit was lighter than that of the control group (P<0.05). The wound exudate was relatively small, and the average suture removal time was 9-12 days after operation, while that of the control group was 11-14 days, and the wound healing was better than the general treatment.
History of Jincheng Coal Bintuan General Hospital reported that 90 cases of severe open fractures were treated with electromagnetic fields combined with high-energy narrow-harmonic red north, and 40 wounds that were difficult to cope with were treated with mooring therapy.
The results show that the growth degree of Xiaojiao, Zhipu and bone is significantly better than that of conventional fracture treatment, while ensuring fracture healing, avoiding wound infection, shortening wound healing time, and improving clinical efficacy are worthy of popularization and application.
