What is Low Level Laser Therapy?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is also known as Cold Laser Therapy or Photobiomodulation Therapy. This uses light to boost the body’s natural healing ability in response to pain, inflammation, swelling and muscular spasm, whilst at the same time increasing oxygen levels to sick and injured cells. It is approved and registered by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
How does it work?
It is a gentle and pain free treatment that targets many conditions. When LLLT is applied to the skin, light is absorbed by the damaged cells. This in turn triggers a reaction in the mitochondria (the powerhouse of our cells) to produce more energy, stimulating the body’s immune response, and increasing blood supply to the damaged cells, increasing tissue repair, and reducing inflammation, swelling and pain. It targets the chronic inflammation to promote healing, which means the results are effective and long lasting.
