What is Low Level Laser Therapy? (LLLT)

LLLT improves tissue repair, reduces pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. Usually applied by a doctor, therapist or technician, treatments take about 10 minutes and should be applied two or more times a week.

LLLT has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain. Over 200 randomised clinical trials have been published on LLLT, half of which are on pain.

 

Laser instruments are manufactured in a variety of shapes sizes. Some are handheld as with cordless telephones; others are pencil-thin and aimed like flashlights.  The light-emitting diode (LED) is a light source with a relatively narrow band. The laser is useful for healing the treatment of chronic pain and inflammatory conditions.

These physiological effects of low level laser therapy are achieved by the light’s re-energizing (repolarizing) injured and malfunctioning cell membranes. LLLT also increases the mitochondria’s energy output within the cell by more than 150 percent.
The extra energy becomes a repair and restoration mechanism so that the damaged cell begins to thrive once again.

Advantageous actions of low level laser therapy take place in all organs and tissues of the body for the creation of good cellular functioning once again. This is achieved by the following

  • A reduction of pain by the body’s production of endorphins
  • The diminishing of inflammation from suppression of tissue excitation
  • The stopping of a tissue’s influx of fluids
  • The disappearance of swelling, redness and heat
  • The elimination of pain
  • The elevation of lymphatic drainage
  • The increase of blood circulation
  • The flow of healing enzymes into a traumatized area
  • The canceling wave effect of viruses, fungi, bacteria and a variety of parasites so that they fail to survive as pathological organisms.
