Laser medicine is one of the treatment focuses of the Clinic for Integrative Medicine of Dr. Kreisel in Bietigheim-Bissingen near Stuttgart and Ludwigsburg.
Since the 60ies, the impact of laser on biological tissue has been the subject of intensive research and technologies have been further developed. Today, laser light is used in medicine in many respects and makes surgeries possible that were not achievable until recently. Besides well-known surgical lasers, low energetic lasers are used in particular as they do not damage the tissue, but purposefully stimulate metabolic responses. This method is known as Low Level Laser Therapy LLLT (Photobiomodulation Therapy PBMT).
The following effects of low energetic laser light on our body could be determined:
- Pain-relieving (analgesic)
- Anti-inflammatory (antiphlogistic)
- Stimulating the blood flow (increasing the microcirculation)
- Regenerative effects
- Immunomodulatory effects
Dr. Kreisel ranks among the world’s leading experts in the field of low level laser therapy. When it is about this topic, he is active all over the world as a popular lecturer at congresses and seminars, trains physicians and actively takes part in the development of this promising method. On an international level, he has close contacts to academic institutions such as the University of Graz in Austria. In cooperation with Dr. Michael Weber, Dr. Kreisel published a specialist book on laser acupuncture in 2012 which is now readily used as training guideline for physicians. Furthermore, Dr. Kreisel acts as Vice President of ISLA (International Society for Medical Laser Applications), Board Member of the College for Laser Photo Therapy COLLL and lecturer for laser medicine at the Danube University Krems, Austria.
