Cold Laser (Low-Level) Therapy

What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low-level laser therapy, also known as LLLT, is a form of alternative medicine that applies low-power lasers that are light-emitting diodes, LEDs, to the surface of the body. This kind of laser can also be known as cold laser because it does not produce any heat or vibration.

Low-level laser therapy is often used for relief of pain and to promote healing. It promotes extra healing to the tissue by decreasing inflammation and promoting protein synthesis and energy production at the site. It helps with many types of pain but is superior when it comes to pain and discomfort associated with degenerative, nerve pain, arthritis, athletic injuries, and postoperative pain.
