Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) can be used to treat acute and chronic injuries. The beam of cold laser penetrates the skin and stimulates blood flow, nerve function and cell metabolism. It assists in the generation of tissue, reduces scarring, and decreases healing time.
Laser treatment is especially effective in post-operative and sports injuries, as well as general inflammation, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Laser acts on the mitochondria in cells to increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. This increased ATP production can lead to faster production of collagen, vascular structures, DNA, RNA and other materials essential to the healing process.
It is a cold laser light held near the skin. It is not painful or uncomfortable at all.
