Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a gentle yet powerful non- invasive system of treatment using red light/infra-red laser of low frequencies (600-990nm) and low power(200mW).
The bio-chemical stimulation leads to increase in endorphins (pain modulators), serotonins (mood & anti-inflammatory Modulators), white blood cells (immune function) and tissue repair. Besides from its powerful effect on the body, it can also be used as a non-invasive way to stimulate acupoints.
Because of the versatility of LLLT, conditions that it treats are numerous:- musculo-skeletal conditions, chronic pain & inflammatory syndromes, skin problems, supporting patients on chemotherapy, allergies, verrucas and warts and stimulating acupuncture points to treat all conditions that respond to acupuncture. Unlike electro acupuncture systems, LLLT is a light system, therefore safe in patients who suffer from Epilepsy, has a pace maker or is pregnant.
