Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a medical treatment that utilizes low-level lasers, also known as light-emitting diodes, to alter cellular function. The first usage of lasers is generally accredited to Albert Einstein. Then in the late 60’s, Endre Mester, a Hungarian scientist, invented the first low level laser and began to experiment. He discovered that this therapy positively stimulated the growth of new cell production and thus, cold laser therapy was born.

Cold Laser Therapy & Pain Relief

This safe and innovative pain relief therapy has the ability to do what other treatments cannot do, which is provide a warm, soothing penetration of healing energy, which is delivered directly to the sight of injury. This deep healing energy is believed to advance the healing time of an injury.

So, just what type of pain can be relieved by low level laser therapy?

  • Arthritis (Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis)
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Neck Pain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Muscle Sprains and Strains
  • Fibromyalgia

Conditions which cause joint and tissue pain are often relieved by cold laser treatment, especially when there is inflammation. The lasers are directly used on or over the affected area for a short time while patients comfortably rest.
