Probably the most commonly used application of Low Level Laser Therapy is for pain relief. There are many clinical studies proving the efficacy of Laser Therapy (LLLT) for treating pain to explain biological processes within the body that are stimulated by light wavelengths, applied at particular powers and frequencies. Low Level Laser Therapy (also known as Cold Laser Therapy) is used as a stand alone therapy, or in combination with other rehabilitative therapies such as physiotherapy, osteopathy, sports massage, pilates and so on. The benefits of using Low Level Laser Therapy for pain are many. LLLT is a non-invasive procedure, there are no adverse effects, it reduces the need for analgesic medication
(which does carry side-effects), and in many cases Low Level Laser heals the source of inflammation or pain, rather than simply providing relief from it.
At Laser Medicine we successfully employ Low Level Laser Therapy to reduce pain and inflammation for many health conditions. Often, we find patients who have been in pain for many years (from chronic injury or fibromyalgia, for example) experience instant relief after a Cold Laser treatment, significantly improving their quality of life. Moreover, they find that the results are long lasting. In many cases, traditional medication has been unable to resolve pain successfully. In our experience, we feel that pain management is the greatest single benefit of Cold Laser or Low Level Laser Therapy.
