What is Low Level Laser Therapy?
LLLT has been used in the field of osteopathy for some time and is widely available for the treatment of pain, the healing of wounds and musculoskeletal conditions.
Low Level Laser Therapy cannot harm or burn your skin and in addition to the direct healing applications, LLLT also provides a highly effective, needle-free acupuncture medium.
It uses low power or ‘soft’ laser light to alter cellular function, improve outcomes and speed up your body’s natural healing process safely and effectively.
Just some of the conditions we can use LLLT with include:
- Sports Injuries
- Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)
- Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Acute & Chronic Back Pain
- Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
- Rheumatoid & Osteo-Arthritis
- Chronic Oedema (Swelling & Fluid Retention)
- Fracture Healing
- Headaches & Migraines (including TMJ Dysfunction)
How Does it Work?
The Benefits of LLLT
You will benefit from the resolution of soft tissues injuries and pain syndromes without the discomfort and side-effects of many other forms of more intrusive treatments.
With LLLT, your body will respond more quickly when treating soft tissue conditions and pain and measurable results are usually evident after only one or two sessions with your osteopath. Treatment times per session are relatively short so overall treatment time shows no significant increase compared to that of most traditional treatments.
LLLT used in combination with general osteopathic techniques can offer dramatic pain relief and help rapid resolution of the majority of acute and chronic pain syndromes.
