Health professionals around the world use this non-invasive, low level laser therapy to help patients suffering from a range of pain conditions.
Low level laser therapy, also known as photobiomodulation or cold laser, uses low intensity lasers and light emitting diodes(LEDs) at the infrared and visible red wavelengths to relieve pain and reduce inflammation caused by damaged tissue.
Low level laser therapy works by accelerating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. When low level laser light particles penetrate the skin, the damaged cells absorb the light and convert it into energy (a photochemical reaction similar to the way skin absorbs sunlight to produce vitamin D). The body uses this energy to reduce inflammation and increase blood flow, assisting the natural healing process.
It can help:
- Relieve muscle and joint pain
- Increase blood flow and assist healing
- Decrease inflammation
- Reduce swelling
- Promote relaxation of muscles to alleviate spasms
- Improve functionality and mobility
- Relieve stiffness
