Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy:


Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the application of red and near infrared light over injuries or wounds to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both acute and chronic pain. LLLT uses cold (sub thermal) laser light energy to direct bio-simulative light energy to the body’s cells, which the cells then convert into chemical energy to promote natural healing and pain relief. The therapy is precise and accurate, and offers safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions including back
pain, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines, tendonitis, and carpal tunnel. LLLT relieves acute and chronic pain, increases the speed and quality of tissue repair, increases blood supply, stimulates nerve function, helps boost the immune system and reduces inflammation. We have been using LLLT at COA for over three years and have seen dramatic results in our patients’ progress.

Benefits of LLLT:

  • Relieves acute and chronic pain
  • Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair
  • Increases blood supply
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Stimulates nerve function
  • Develops collagen and muscle tissue
  • Helps generate new healthy cells and tissue
  • Promotes faster wound healing and clot formation
  • Reduces inflammation.

    Additional Information:

    • High vs. Low Power Medical Lasers-LLLT is a low-level (cold) laser that is used for tissue repair through Bio Stimulation, high power lasers, on the other hand, are used to cut through tissue
    • LLLT was invented in 1962.
    • LLLT was FDA approved in 2002
    • Most insurance companies do cover laser therapy
