How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair mechanisms in the presence of injury, sports and workout injuries, inflammation and with certain disease processes.

What’s cold laser therapy used for?

Cold laser therapy in a variety of ways. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation.

If you are suffering from:

  • ligament sprains
  • muscle strains
  • tendonitis
  • bursitis
  • tennis elbow
  • neck pain
  • lower back pain
  • knee pain
  • carpal tunnel syndrome   
  • pain associated with muscle spasms


It’s also used to help reduce swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissue.

LLLT is consistent in providing pain relief, reducing injury damage, loss of function and in facilitating a more rapid repair of damaged tissues creating stronger healed tissue structures.

What to expect from LLLT treatment? Some patients may notice a minor, tingling or tapping in a nerve or a long nerve pathway or sense a slight feeling of warmth but the treatment is not noticeable for most

Following, and sometimes during a laser therapy session, approximately 75 – 80% of patients notice any immediate improvement in their condition. The experience depends, primarily on the specific treatment and the severity of the treated condition, many patients have seen results in as little as 4 – 5 treatments while others may require 15 – 20.
