Otherwise known as cold laser therapy, LLLT utilizes red and near infra-red light for a variety of conditions. LLLT differs from those used by physicians in surgery or cosmetic applications as it is less intense and has no heating effect. LLLT is used to treat injuries, reduce inflammation, enhance healing of wounds and provide relief in both acute and chronic pain conditions.
Soft tissue injuries, frozen shoulders, sciatica have been effectively treated with LLLT, as well as tennis elbow, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis. LLLT also being used for smoking cessation, stress, insomnia and even weight loss.
The treatment is painless and non-invasive. No needles, no intense heat, no side effects. Costs vary so it’s wise to call around. Ideally the practitioner should have a health care background such as physiotherapy or nursing.
Whether it is chronic pain, an acute tissue injury or anxiety that you would like to treat without the use of drugs, laser therapy is an option to consider discussing with your physician.
