Low-Level Laser Therapy is a treatment that involves low-energy laser beams penetrating the skin tissues to restore the original cell function. A laser is a device that produces such light. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is used by some therapists to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. LLLT is a non-invasive light source treatment that generates a single wavelength of light.
It emits no heat, sound, or vibration. It is also called photobiology or biostimulation. 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 904 nm, are used in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Wavelengths between 660 nm and 905 nm can penetrate the skin and soft/hard tissues.
Laser Therapy speeds up the recovery process after experiencing MVA accidents, sports injuries, and other forms of trauma. This treatment is non-invasive and the majority of patients will experience little to no discomfort. There are a variety of short and long-term benefits associated with using Laser Therapy, including increased range of motion, decreased sensation of pain by increasing the production of cells, and decreased swollen areas, amongst many other benefits.
Laser Therapy is 100% safe and is recommended by specialists to help speed up healing and reduce inflammation after experiencing an injury. It is extremely effective in treating soft tissue injuries, arthritic conditions, and sports injuries.
Conditions that are treated include:
- Osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and ankle
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Shoulder impingement syndromes
- Hip or shoulder bursitis
- Low back disc degeneration
- Disc herniation
- neuropathic pain.
- Tennis elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Reduction of volume and pain in lymphedema
