In recent years, the complex treatment of adenoids were increasingly include courses of laser therapy. Some even believe that laser therapy is an alternative to surgical treatment, and after the adenoids disappear completely, in any case, such advertising gives some laser cosmetology clinics.
As laser beams act on the human body
In recent years, the indications for the use of lasers in medicine has expanded considerably. It has been found that it contributes to the improvement of blood circulation (the movement of blood in small blood vessels), the formation of a network of new capillaries, stimulates the redox processes (and hence the metabolism in general) and working enzymes (catalysts that are many times accelerate all biochemical processes). The laser beam is applied directly to tissue cells by altering their permeability to various chemicals.
When laser irradiation of blood are improving all the biochemical processes in the body, inhibits the release of histamine (the main substance that supports inflammation), inhibited the formation of prostaglandins (they are also actively involved in the inflammatory process), recovered the body's defenses.
Is laser therapy may replace surgery adenoids
Because the mechanism of action of the laser beams should be quite obvious that they help to reduce swelling, inflammation, and immune reconstitution. This is very important in adenoids, especially if they are often complicated by inflammation (adenoiditis).
In making the aggravation adenoiditis rare as possible, and at the same time prevent any acute illness nasopharynx, built all conservative therapy adenoids. All methods of conservative treatment - drug instillation, washing, any physiotherapy finally antibiotics
Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?
sent it out to prevent inflammation and to restore nasal breathing, it is only during the joining of infection nasopharyngeal tonsil lymphoid tissue grows - it is a normal protective function. Therefore, the more inflammatory processes in the nasopharynx, the more adenoids.
Laser treats acute inflammation: relieves swelling and inflammation, so gradually recovering and nasal breathing.
But that is not all. Laser therapy is recommended to conduct two courses. During the first course of the inflammatory process is removed. In addition, under the influence of the laser improves metabolism

And, therefore, the body's defenses, because the immune cells are formed during metabolism

. A second course of laser therapy promotes a more complete restoration of the immune system and has been operating as the prevention of inflammatory processes in the nasopharynx. Thus, laser therapy fits perfectly into the complex of conservative treatment of adenoids, preventing growth of the adenoids.
Laser therapy alone can not do: reduce the adenoids, so it is an alternative to surgical treatment in any case it is not. So advertising that adenoids disappear after laser therapy should be considered as a sign of extreme ignorance and lack of professionalism.
The effectiveness of laser therapy in adenoids
Laser therapy can be administered to children with any degree of enlarged adenoids. It is an occasion to two courses of 8-10 daily sessions (number of treatments prescribed by a doctor). After the first year make a break for a month and then repeat the course. During the year it can hold up to four such courses.
Free breathing through the nose due to the removal of edema was restored in the vast majority of children after the first course of laser therapy (for clinical data - up to 98%). After two courses of treatment recommended by a breath hold for a year, and sometimes more. If the second course was not carried out, the effectiveness of treatment was reduced, and a full year free breathing was observed in only a quarter of the children.
In addition, the authors of laser therapy treatment methods adenoids (development belongs to specialists of the Moscow Medical Academy. IMSechenov, clinical trials were conducted over six years from 1998 to 2004.) Is recommended to combine laser treatments with taking homeopathic remedies to fight infection of the nasopharynx . Homeopathic remedies act in the same direction, removing the inflammation, swelling, and improving the body's defenses. Especially effective homeopathic remedies firm Heel (Germany), which for many years has specialized in the production of such drugs.
Laser in adenoids
Adenoids - the expansion of the pharyngeal tonsil
It is an excellent prevention of inflammatory processes in the nasopharynx and adenoid growth, but the decrease in volume is due to the removal of edema, and not reduce themselves adenoids.
