Low Level Laser Therapy

What is LLLT?

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the use of therapeutic (or cold) laser light to provide relief from minor muscle and joint aches, pains, stiffness, muscle spasms, eliminate inflammation (swelling) or to repair damaged tissues. LLLT is entirely non-invasive and has a wide range of applications, from neural muscular skeletal conditions to wound healing to acupuncture treatments. LLLT uses low intensity laser light energy to stimulate cells through a number of known cellular pathways in order to increase local microcirculation, accelerate tissue repair and healing, reduce pain, decrease inflammation and edema and enhance the immune response. Phototherapy or LLLT can be used to treat both acute and chronic conditions.
