Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. Laser Therapy is also known as Low Level Light Therapy, (LLLT) and is a form of photobiomodulation. LLLT is currently being used in 70 countries, as well as by, Harvard Medical School, NASA researchers, the US Navy, and a multitude of Professional Sports Organizations. See the video clips to the right
for further explanation.
Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity.
This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells.
Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
Laser treatment is painless treatment that usually lasts several minutes.
Patients may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application.
Most patients see a positive result in 1-3 treatments. The swelling is greatly reduced and there is rapid relief of pain. Chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.
Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one set of treatments.
Over 200 clinical trials and over 1,000 laboratory studies have been published.
It has proven more effective and safer than pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories across arrange
of musculoskeletal conditions. Laser therapy has been proven to improve healing,
and reduce muscle damage and fatigue.
