AVANT Chiropractic is excited to add this very effective therapy option for our patient community. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a very effective treatment addition for many conditions.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
The use of Low-Level Laser or “Cold Laser” is an effective treatment for certain nerve conditions, deep muscle, ligament, or joint injuries. It is a drug and surgery free treatment option for individuals suffering from both acute and chronic pain. Treatments depending on the type and area of injury are fast, safe, and painless taking usually between 2 and 20 minutes. Most patients see results in 3 to 5 treatment sessions and the treatments often have a continued therapeutic effect long after a session.
How is Laser Different?
Lasers can stimulate healing AND reduce pain at the same time. This treatment is ideal for speeding up healing of any recent or old, long standing injuries and conditions while simultaneously decreasing pain.
Is it Effective?
Yes, there are over 4,000 medical peer-reviewed research articles that have been published about the effectiveness of laser therapy for various conditions. Laser therapy has the most published research of any form of electrotherapy. The common research umbrella is called PBM, shortform for photo biomodulation.
Are the Results Temporary?
No, laser therapy is not masking or blocking pain temporarily. Basically, the energy supplied to your cells by the lasers is converted to chemical energy at your cell level. The lasers speed up the natural healing processes so that damaged cells can actually heal themselves and naturally reduce inflammation and pain.
