Cold laser therapy or low level laser therapy (LLLT) is an alternative form of non-invasive, painless treatment for a wide range of conditions, including providing pain relief from musculoskeletal conditions and decreasing inflammation in affected areas. It can speed up the body’s healing process, helping scars or bruises from surgery or trauma to heal faster and better.
Cold laser therapy (LLLT) differs to other laser therapies by being ‘low level’ to stimulate healing. Other stronger lasers can be designed for surgical use or for destroying tumors.
Research has shown that cold laser therapy also known as low level laser therapy can even help to manage the symptoms of some brain disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and autism. More information can be read below.
Many people are surprised to hear that laser therapy is not as new as it sounds! In actual fact, it was first used (and continued since then) in 1967 by Professor Andre Mester. Since then, there has been over 2000 clinical studies published about cold laser therapy. The overall results from these studies demonstrates that cold laser therapy is a reliable, efficient method for pain relief.
