LLLT is a painless, sterile,
non-invasive, drug free treatment.
This treatment is used to treat a variety of pain
syndromes, injuries, neurological conditions and
pathologies. There are no creams, gels or ointments that
need to be applied prior to the treatment. No pulsating
shocks are felt as in forms of electric stimulation. The
most sensation is the pressure of the probe head of the
laser as it becomes in contact with the skin.
The use of Light Therapy is not new. In the late
1960's, Professor Endre Mester of Budapest, Hungary,
first reported his experience using laser light for
healing process. Light Therapy was reported to be
effective for many conditions. With the development of
the laser and it's special properties, using light as a
treatment has gained more popularity around the world.
Low level lasers supply energy to the body in form of
non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted
through the skins layers at all wavelengths in visible
range. When the low level laser light waves penetrate
deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses
of our blood , supplying vital oxygen and energy to the
cell. Which also stimulates the production of our body's
natural pain suppressors call "endorphins".
Endorphins interact with opiate receptor neurons to
reduce the intensity of pain. In layman terms…
Endorphins interacting with the neurons act as if the
body was using painkilling drugs, such as morphine or
Some patients have reported a slight tingling or
tapping in a nerve or along a nerve pathway. Some have
been able to sense a slight feeling of warmth. Some just
feel a relaxed feeling. But for the most part, the
treatment is not noticed at all. Treatment sessions can
be 20 to 30 minutes. Some patients can feel an immediate
improvement in their condition following 1 treatment.
Others will take 3 or 4 sessions before a dramatic or
marked change is perceived. The number of treatments
depends upon the severity of the condition and its
