Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) also known as Cold Laser Therapy or Red Light Therapy has a wide range of applications for many musculoskeletal conditions. Laser Therapy for tissue repair is widely used in the healing of:

  • torn ligaments
  • tendons and tendonitis
  • damaged cartilage
  • muscle strain
  • dislocations
  • joint injuries
  • vertebrae / disc protrusions
  • chronic pain
  • chronic injuries
  • acute injuries
  • sports injuries
  • many soft tissue and/or muscular conditions.

Tissue repair for the musculoskeletal system

Laser Therapy for tissue repair extends to chronic back injuries such as degenerative disc disorder and ‘slipped’ discs or protrusions (herniated discs). Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) creates an increase in the production of ATP (energy) within the mitochondria at a cellular level. This results in rapid healing of damaged tissue and also resolves pain, which is usually associated with the above conditions. Light must be applied at the correct wavelengths between 600-1000nm and at an energetic power of at least a class 3b / class 4 laser (500mW).

Laser Therapy for tissue repair works at three fundamental levels:

  1. Improves the functionality of the lymphatic system and promotes the distribution of white blood cells to the necessary areas of the body for healing.
  2. Endorphins are naturally released into the blood stream, to create a major benefit of LLLT – natural pain relief.
  3. An increase in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which energises the mitochondria and promotes cell proliferation and health.

Patients with fibromyalgia, neuralgia, arthritis, chronic injuries, ulcers, post-operative wounds, and other inflammatory diseases have all experienced pain relief after treatment, often reporting a long term relief from pain for long periods afterwards.

Laser therapy for sports injuries and tissue repair

Laser therapy for tissue repair is a perfect solution for sports injuries. For acute injuries, LLLT reduces inflammation and starts to heal the injury more rapidly than otherwise. For chronic injuries, laser therapy dissolves old scar tissue and waste left within the tissue, then promotes the production of fresh healthy tissue.
