It is a light therapy using lasers or LEDs to improve tissue repair, reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. Usually applied by a doctor,
nurse or a trained professional. Treatments take about 10 minutes and should be applied two or more times a week.
Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) improves tissue repair, reduces pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. Commonly used for Acute or Chronic
Tendinopathies, Sprains and strains, Neck and back pain, Osteoarthritis, Post-operative pain and Tissue Healing, a great alternative to Musculoskeletal Infiltration treatment.
When cells are stressed, nitric oxide (NO) inhibits oxygen consumption by mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase. This reduces production of ATP and
causes oxidative stress leading to increased inflammation and reduced production of ATP. LLLT displaces NO from cytochrome c oxidase thereby
reducing inflammation and restoring ATP production, helping tissues heal more quickly.
Significant reduction of inflammation equal to or better than NSAIDs within 2 hours, analgesic effects that last for 48 hours, healing time of chronic tendinopathies reduced by 70%.
Low Level Light Therapy has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain. Over 700 randomised clinical
trials have been published on Photobiomodulation, half of which are on pain.
