Low Level Light Therapy for Long Term Injury Management

For many years, chronic pain or long term injury pain has been treated with Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs and Paracetamol. These can treat acute muscle and bone pain, and in some cases, severe chronic pain symptoms. While these treatments are still very much relevant and widely used, there are alternatives to managing long term injury. Low Level Light Therapy (LLT) or Cold Laser Therapy is a complimentary non-intrusive, safe, non-toxic and drug free alternative to treat acute or chronic pain conditions.

Cold Laser Therapy is used by doctors, dentists, other medical professionals and pain management clinics. Low-level light is placed on the affected painful area. The inflamed tissue absorbs that light, which in turn increases the rate of healing. READ more about the science behind cold laser therapy – how it assists with pain relief and its benefits.

Acute Injuries and Sprains

Sports therapists often use low level light therapy to treat sports players and/or patients. The low level light treatment helps reduce swelling and heals the soft tissue around the joints.

Aches and Pains

  • Back ache
  • Neck pain
  • Frozen shoulder or shoulder pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Acute plantarfacitis
  • Knee pain and loss of movement

Wound Healing

In the 1960s, Hungarian physician and surgeon, Professor Endre Mester accidently discovered the effects of low light therapy. In 1967 he carried out an experiment to treat tumors using laser light. Although the experiment wasn’t successful in removing tumors it did successfully regrow hair and increase the speed of wound healing in mice.
“Low Level Light Therapy” is used to treat wounds that are hard to heal, like diabetic wounds. Diabetes, over time, can affect blood circulation. Without healthy blood circulation, the skin around the wound doesn’t receive the appropriate amount of blood it needs to repair. Cold Laser Therapy is an alternative solution to heal these wounds. Cold laser adds pulsed light to the affected area which stimulates blood flow and adenosine production to promote healing. Are you diabetic and looking for an alternative to treat wounds?

Acupuncture is a Chinese medical practice used to treat many physical and mental conditions. Fine needles are inserted through the skin along the meridian lines of energy within your body. Cold Laser Therapy is an alternative solution to a patient who may not want to have needles inserted into their body. Laser beams can stimulate the same part of your body without physically penetrating the skin.
