Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also known as Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM) has been widely developed to aid in the healing of many medical conditions. One of the most compelling applications is in the field of neurology (both central and peripheral). Many serious brain diseases and injuries can be successfully treated with non-invasive transcranial photobiomodulation, alongside nerve regeneration and pain relief throughout the peripheral nervous system. Lightwaves penetrate the skull to directly aid damaged neurological tissue. We see good results utilising with Low Level Laser for Stroke Recovery.

It is widely accepted that acute stroke cases receive a more beneficial response to Low Level Laser than the symptoms of chronic stroke, although there is also evidence to suggest an improvement in chronic cases. It appears that the earlier therapeutic laser treatment is given the better the results. It is possible to receive Therapeutic Laser as soon as 18 hours after the stroke has occurred. Light is applied to various parts of the scalp, and as with all our treatments we work through the lymphatic system and various key nerves through the central nervous system.

If it possible for a stroke patient to receive treatments immediately after the stroke has occurred we would recommend one session at the earliest opportunity. A further course of treatments can be applied on a weekly basis for a series of 6 consecutive weeks to aid with rehabilitation and recovery.

Low Level Laser Therapy for chronic stroke recovery is more complex and we are still assessing its efficacy with various people who have different levels of paralysis and cognitive function.

We assess each case on an as needs basis and make a rehabilitation plan accordingly. Treatments should be more frequent and we would recommend a course of 10 treatments over a 28 day period.
