Low Level Laser Therapy is the application of high intensity, red or infra-red light into the area of tissue. This very intense (but not hot), “monochromatic” (one wavelength), coherent light (all the photons are in phase and synchronized) is applied with a very specific dose in mind. It is painless, non-toxic, non-invasive, without drugs and very safe if applied by a trained practitioner. LLLT also reduces healing duration 30-40% and the injured tissues are stronger than if they had not been exposed to LLLT.
Specifically, LLLT is the application of red and infra-red light over injuries or lesions to improve wound / soft tissue healing, decrease inflammation and give relief for both acute and chronic pain.
Laser Therapy is used to:
•Increase speed & strength of tissue repair
•Provide significant pain relief
•Decrease overall inflammation
•Increase local circulation
