Low Intensity Laser Therapy
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) technology utilizes light and laser
diodes to assist in healing of diseased or traumatized tissue with
photons. The process is curative and therefore results in the
elimination of symptoms including pain. In addition, it enhances the
body’s immune system response and facilitates natural healing. The
therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.
The physiological effects of LILT include:
Collagen production – increases tensile strength of muscles, tendons and ligaments
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) – the fuel of the cell required in facilitating cell metabolism
Endorphins – morphine like substances produced by the body to reduce the sensation of pain
lymphatic drainage (reduction in edema
angiogenesis – formation of new capillaries and arterioles
resulting in improved circulation / tissue oxygenation
How long does a treatment take?
Treatments are typically thirty minutes to one hour in duration
depending on the condition being treated
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments will depend on the ailment and symptoms involved.
Based on the genetic makeup of the cells, an individual’s response to
Low Intensity Laser Therapy will vary to some degree.
A recent clinical review, including 1,000 consecutively treated patients, reveals
the average number of treatments to be 9.4.
Are there any side effects?
Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions and other therapeutic options,
laser therapy is non-toxic, non-invasive and in over one million individual
treatments, no significant adverse effects have been noted.
