What is Laser Therapy?
What Are the Benefits of Low-Level Laser Therapy?
We hear it often: too much sun exposure is harmful to your body and can cause detrimental health effects. One of the reasons is due to how powerful light energy can be. But in a low, controlled setting, light exposure, or low-level laser therapy (LLLT), is not only beneficial to your health, but has been proven to mitigate pain and inflammation and promote cell function and healing.
Unlike high intensity light or laser exposure, LLLT does not burn your skin as it heals, but simply allows your mitochondria to absorb the light and turn it into cellular energy, allowing it to heal itself.
Beyond Skin Deep
Also referred to as “Cold Laser Therapy”, Low Level Laser Therapy is an effective treatment against chronic and acute injuries. Arthritis pain, tendonitis, planter fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia pain, as well as back, neck, and knee pain are just some of conditions that can be treated with this type of therapy.
While it has been known to assist in the healing process of wounds, low-level laser therapy can do so much more than that. Low-level or cold laser therapy has also been shown to effectively reduce pain and inflammation caused by musculoskeletal conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, temporomandibular joint disorder, arthritis, and fibromyalgia.
A major medical use for LLLT is its ability to help people who have suffered from sports injuries. The reason LLLT is so popular is due to its non-invasive efficacy in relieving pain and accelerating the speed of recovery without any down time.
Help Your Body Heal Itself Without Medication
One of the reasons LLLT is considered alternative medicine is that it has produced results without the use of medication. If you’re sensitive or allergic to harsh medications, LLLT is a wonderful alternative that is safe, natural, and effective. The low-level light stimulates your body’s own healing process without the side-effects.
