Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low level laser therapy is a painless, rapid treatment which relieves pain and promotes wound healing. It has been studied by prestigious organizations such as NASA and Harvard Medical School.

What Conditions May Be Helped With Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low level laser treatment may help relieve the following conditions:
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Arthritis
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Pain involving any joint
  • Residual pain from fractures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Sports injuries
  • Some conditions which involve joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and cartilage
  • Speed up the healing of soft tissue wounds
  • Wounds including ulcers caused by poor circulation, diabetes, or pressure
  • Some radiation burns and mouth sores caused by chemotherapy

How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Specifically, LLLT is the application of red and infra-red light over injuries or lesions to improve wound or soft tissue healing, decrease inflammation and give relief for both acute and chronic pain. It has been used to increase speed and strength of tissue repair, provide pain relief, decrease overall inflammation, increase mobility, and increase local circulation.

The applications typically take less than an hour and frequency of treatment is determined by your individual needs.

Low Level Laser Therapy continues to demonstrate versatility as an advanced treatment modality as research into other uses continues. Low level Laser Therapy excels as a non-invasive, pain free treatment option for many conditions.
