Lighting the Way to Faster a Recovery - with Laser Precision.

Low Level Laser Therapy (Lllt)

LLLT is a light therapy that uses lasers to help improve tissue repair while reducing pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. It’s a non-invasive, pain-free treatment for musculoskeletal conditions that emits no heat, sound, or vibration, and is safe, effective, and virtually side-effect free.

Usually administered by a physiotherapist, treatments take about 10–15 minutes and should be applied two or more times a week. LLLT is used to:

  • Treat chronic injuries
  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Improve the effectiveness of complementary treatments
  • Accelerate repair and promote regeneration of both tissue and nerves

  • Tendonitis & tennis elbow
  • Osteoarthritis & rheumatoid arthritis
  • Low back disc degeneration
  • Disc herniation and sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hip or shoulder bursitis
  • Shoulder impingements
  • Lymphedema symptoms

How Does LLLT Work?

The red and near-infrared light commonly used in LLLT can be produced by laser or high intensity LEDs. The strength is fairly low compared to similar devices (like surgical lasers) and there is no heating effect. Hot lasers in the medical world are used for surgical precision while the cold lasers we use in our physiotherapy clinic are used for healing precision.

When the laser is applied to the tissue, an interaction between your cells and the photons from the laser takes place — a photochemical reaction. The cold laser photons enter the tissue, alter cell membrane permeability, and at the cellular level are absorbed in the mitochondria of the cell creating physiological changes.

The Benefits of Laser Therapy

The laser stimulates fibroblast development in damaged tissue and reduces recovery time.

Does Laser Therapy Have Side Effects?

Because LLLT is as safe as it is effective, there are no known long-term side effects of this form of light therapy. Other than not shining the laser’s red or infrared light directly into your eyes, there are no known red flags or adverse side effects from using LLLT. Because the light emitted does not cause your skin to burn, there is no risk of pain except under certain conditions.

Laser Therapy FAQs

LLLT is a pain-free treatment. You may feel a slight warming sensation in the area the laser is applied or slight tingling due to nerves being stimulated — but this will disappear shortly after your treatment is completed.
