Low level laser therapy 

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is the application of red or near infrared light to the surface of the skin to aid in the healing of tissue and reduce pain

How does it work?

The effect of LLLT is Photochemical and not thermal. LLLT aids in the production of ATP (the energy source of all cells) and thus helps the cells achieve an optimal state to assist in the natural healing process.

LLLT is used to increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation, and give pain relief. The technical term often used to describe this form of therapy is “photobiostimulation.”

Conditions that low level laser therapy may help with:

  •  Soft-tissue injury            

  •  Chronic pain

  •  Post-op pain                       

  •  Joint dysfunctions

  •  As a substitute for acupuncture
