What is Low Level Laser Therapy?
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), is a non-invasive, painless procedure that stimulates cells and promotes tissue repair. Laser therapy uses the energy from an infrared light to reduce pain, to reduce inflammation and to stimulate tissue healing at a quick rate.
Another benefit to laser therapy is that it increases blood flow and assists with circulation within the body to the affected areas. Laser therapy’s most significant benefit is that it stimulates the natural process which occurs in the cell, creating better recovery times and eliminating pain.
