Low Level Laser Therapy
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive safe, painless treatment that can be used for a variety of conditions. It is applied with a handheld device that shines a specific wavelength of light and it emits no heat, sound, or vibration.
The laser brings about a photochemical reaction at a cellular level. It penetrates into tissue where it is absorbed by cells and converted into energy that influences the course of the metabolic process.
LLLT is believed to affect the function of connective tissue cells (fibroblasts), accelerate connective tissue repair and act as an anti-inflammatory agent.
Lasers with different wavelengths, varying from 632 to 904nm, are used in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. It also delivers effective penetration into injured cells to promote healing, restoration and the regeneration of damaged tissue.
