Paper Abstract

A number of reports and scientific publications, especially from recent years, prove that laser irradiation from several to a few dozen milliwatts has positive both local and general influence in many diseases. It is widely regarded that irradiation by a laser of low intensity improves energetic balance of cells, tissues, and the whole system, and works through following the mechanisms: direct absorption of photons, electromagnetic influence, and phosphorylation of ADP under the influence of photostimulation.
