LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY (LLLT)
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a non thermal, photochemical method of stimulating cells.
In particular it stimulates the mitrochondria (central power house of each cell) which is responsible for cellular energy (ATP).
After LLLT, the cells have increased metabolism and can survive stressful conditions better.
overall, it will encourage rapid healing of tissues, nerves, tendons, ligaments, muscle, bone and wounds. It has an effect on scar tissue (even old scarring) and allows nutrients to be absorbed rapidly, thus softening fibrotic tissue.
It reduces pain, swelling and inflammation.
It has a stimulating effect on macrophage production and so enourages reduction of oedema.
Its effects are cumulative, which allows for long term healing.
