Low Intensity Laser Therapy
What is laser therapy?
LILT uses superluminous and laser diodes to clear diseased or traumatized tissue with light cells also known as photons. The light particles of energy are absorbed by the cell membrane and intracellular molecules, causing physiological reactions which result in the restoration of normal cellular structure and function. The process is curative and therefore results in the elimination of symptoms including pain. In addition, it enhances the body’s immune system response and facilitates natural healing.
The therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.
The technology is highly effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, arthritis, sports injuries, wound healing and a wide range of dermatological conditions.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
- Effective treatment mode for otherwise non responsive cases
- Reduces the need for surgery or medication
- Restores normal range of motion and physical function
- Easily applied
- No known adverse effects
- No drug interactions
Effects of LILT:
|Increased production and release of:|
|What does this mean for you (the patient)?|
||Natural analgesics’ Feel good hormone’|
||Is a precursor of cortisone “Cortisone suppresses the immune system, thus reducing inflammation and attendant pain and swelling at the site of the injury|
||Instrumental in tissue repair, thereby facililitating accelerated levels of repair|
||Results in the increased production of collagen, DNA and Fibroblasts|
||Facilitate nutrient transfer and toxin elimination|
||Elevation of oxygen saturation|
||Improves and regulates cell metabolism|
These are just some of the many processes that accelerate cellular regeneration (cartilage, epithelium) and restore normal cell morphology and function.
Conditions which can be treated
LILT is key in the treatment of challenging medical conditions where conventional therapies do not work or give the expected level of relief. These include :
- TMJ (Jaw pain)
- Wound and thermal healing such as burns, frost bite, ulcers etc
- Dermatological conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne
