Benefits of Therapeutic Low Level Laser Therapy
- Promotes rapid cell growth. The laser accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.
- Promotes faster wound healing. It stimulates cell growth in damaged tissues. The reduction in recovery time is an important consideration.
- Increases metabolic activity, which can help with a variety of conditions, including tendonitis treatment, lower back pain relief, osteoarthritis treatment, and Fibromyalgia treatment.
- Improves the quality of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns, or following surgery.
- Reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints. This will improve joint mobility.

Therapeutic Low Level Laser Therapy is simple and painless. Looking much like a flashlight, the probe is held close to the skin on the area being treated. The doctor or assistant will apply light to firm pressure to the area to improve the penetration of the energy.
The Therapeutic Low Level Laser is applied for a specific period of time to deliver the proper amount of laser energy. This will depend on the patient’s specific condition being treated. Treatment times vary based upon the size of the area and the predetermined depth of the therapy. Most treatments take 10 – 20 minutes.
