Gentle therapy with laser light
Laser medicine Stuttgart
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.
Transdermal Laser Therapy
Laser light only penetrates the skin without injuring it. A laser shower, a laser needle (laser needle acupuncture) or a K Laser Cube® is used for this treatment.
Only selected acupuncture or trigger points are stimulated with laser light. The used needles are light needles. So this is a complete non-invasive, painless procedure that significantly exceeds traditional metal needle acupuncture. As this therapy is absolutely painless, it is also ideal for children and patients who are afraid of needles.
Transcranial laser therapy involves exposing the skull to near-infrared light via a special LED helmet. The treatment is non-invasive and completely pain-free. The light penetrates the cranial bones and stimulates cerebral metabolism. Positive effects can be observed in the treatment of various brain diseases and in follow-up treatment for stroke. Intracerebral microcirculation can be improved, and the infarction area can be reduced. Moreover, studies have demonstrated that neuronal growth is activated while undergoing laser therapy.
- Follow-up treatment for stroke and traumatic brain injury
- Degenerative brain diseases (e.g., cerebrosclerosis)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Dementia (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease)
K Laser Cube® – unique technology
K Laser Cube® is based on a technology that is unique in the world and which significantly improves the effectiveness of laser therapy. In particular, this method has proven its effectiveness in pain therapy and is excellently suited for the treatment of sports medical and orthopedic disorders.
- Back and joint pain caused by wear and disc prolapses
- Shoulder and neck pain
- Joint pain, e. g. with arthrosis
- Sports injuries such as bruises and strains
- Calcaneal spur
- Carpal tunnel syndrome CTS
- Tennis elbow
- Wound healing disturbances
- Sudeck’s disease CRPS
A generally improved metabolic situation through laser irradiation has positive effects on the regulation of pain perception. On a neurophysiological level, this is aiming at sustainably supporting the nerve regeneration and improving the further neuromuscular function chain. Complex movements can be done more easily. This leads to rapid and effective alleviation of pain and recovery.
Interstitial Laser Therapy
Interstitial Laser Therapy is a minimal invasive treatment method using delicate laser fibers. These fibers are inserted through the skin into the tissue or joint. Direct irradiation on the spot increases effectiveness of the therapy and offers significant advantages when treating chronic pain disorders. As laser irradiation is not dampened by skin and muscle layers, a higher laser energy dose can be achieved in the target tissue. This makes success possible even in difficult and therapy-resistant cases.
The method of Interstitial Laser Therapy has proven its effectiveness with lumboischialgia, disc prolapses and spinal canal stenosis. Hurting and inflamed tissue is directly irradiated with laser light.
Patients suffering from joint diseases such as arthrosis of the hip and/or knee joint or the shoulder can profit from an Intraarticular Laser Therapy. In this cases, a sterile laser catheter is moved forward into the affected joint.
Intravenous – Intravascular laser therapy
Intravenous or Intravascular Laser Therapy (laser blood irradiation, blood laser) is a new type of intravascular blood treatment. This method is based on biologic healing actions of low energetic lasers which lead to improvements of the absorption of oxygen and the blood circulation, show anti-inflammatory effects and activate both the cell metabolism and the production of new cells. Depending on the wavelength of light, different effects are encouraged. The combination with photosensitizers (light sensitive substances) enhances the therapeutic effect. This is called Photodynamic Therapy PDT. At the Clinic for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Kreisel uses laser light from near infrared, red, yellow, green and blue wavelength range together with photosensitizers depending on the indication.
Many patients show general stabilization and energization during intravenous laser therapy and it has varied effects on the metabolism. Thus, this method is perfectly suited for the treatment of chronic diseases. Here are some examples:
- Chronic inflammatory disease such as liver, colon
- Metabolic disorders such as diabetes mellitus
- Autoimmune diseases
- Neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis MS
- Chronic heart and renal diseases
- Macular degeneration AMD
- Circulatory disturbances
- Skin diseases
- Degenerative diseases such as arthrosis
- Long COVID-19
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrom CFS
Furthermore, intravenous laser therapy can perfectly be used in preventive treatment to stay physically fit and for anti-aging purposes. The fitness of athletes can be increased.
Nail fungus treatment Stuttgart
Nail mycosis (nail fungus) is a mycotic infection of the toenails or finger nails that frequently occurs in our population. In particular, patients with metabolic or immune disorders suffer these effects, but also many athletes and people who often wear tight footwear are affected. Typically this is not – as often wrongly assumed – a hygienic problem but a weak point in the nail.
