What is Cold Laser Therapy (LLLT)?

Laser Light Therapy is a physical modality that emits photons (light) in very specific regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Laser Light Therapy is the most researched and published modality in physical rehabilitation and has demonstrated a multitude of clinical benefits.
The most common uses for cold lasers are:

  • Accelerating the healing of damaged tissue
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Pain reduction treatment

How Does It Work?

Do you remember in high school biology studying the way sunlight triggers chemical reactions in plants? It is called photosynthesis, a term most of us are familiar with. Researchers have found that in humans (and in most animals) there are receptor molecules in not only in cell membranes but in mitochondrial membranes as well. These molecules, when activated by certain wavelengths of light, trigger a “cascade of healing.” This is a “photochemical response” similar to photosynthesis in plants. NASA was one of the first to publish laser research in this country. “Low energy photon irradiation by light in the far-red to near infra-red spectral range with low energy lasers or LED arrays has been found to modulate various biological processes.” This process is called PHOTOBIOMODULATION.

The following is a list of only some of the known reactions inside the body:

1. Anti-inflammatory
2. Analgesic (reduces pain)
3. Faster Cartilage & Ligament Repair
4. Improved Circulation
5. Increased Metabolic Activity
6. Trigger & Acupuncture Point Stimulation/Balancing
7. Reduction of Scar Tissue
8. Improved Nerve Function
9. Enhances Immune System
10.Speeds Wound Healing

1. Pain in Joints (of limbs) or Spine
