Laser Light Therapy

Laser Light Therapy (LLT), is a physical modality that emits photons (light) in very specific regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. This well-researched therapy has shown many clinical benefits that includes relieving pain from minor muscular pain and joint aches, pain and stiffness associated with arthritis, relaxing muscle spasms and increasing local blood circulation.

Laser can strengthen damaged cells. Using photochemical processes, laser light inserts biophotons into damaged cells. The cells begin to produce energy (ATP), which improves their function, assists their division, strengthens the body’s immune system, and causes the secretion of various hormones. The tissues are healed, and pain disappears. If damaged cells have died, the biophotons help the division of neighboring cells, generating new tissues, and thus bring about healing.

Low level laser light therapy works by accelerating the body’s ability to heal itself. It is used all over the world to more quickly heal burns and wounds.
The cold laser actually helps heal injured tissue from the outside, without touching the body. All that touches the skin is the red lines of light generated by the laser.
Low level laser therapy is being widely used throughout the world as an effective pain management tool, to relieve pain and to treat sprains, joint pain, and other injuries.
