Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) utilizes super-luminous and laser diodes to irradiate diseased or
traumatized tissue with photons. These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cell membrane and
intracellular molecules, resulting in the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions, leading to the
restoration of normal cell 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 systemresponse and facilitates natural healing.
The therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.
- Do you wish to eliminate pain?
- Do you wish to reduce medication and probability of surgery?
- Do you wish to regain range of motion?
- Do you wish to improve your quality of life?
The physiological effects of LILT include an increase in
Protein building block essential to the process of cell regeneration
Increases tensile strength of muscles, tendons and ligaments
ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate)
Fuel of the cell required in facilitating cell metabolism
Morphine like substances produced by the body to reduce the sensation of pain
Modulation of cellular components involved in the healing process (i.e. macrophages, fibroblasts, lymphocytes,
Lymphatic drainage (reduction in edema)
The formation of new capillaries and arterioles resulting in improved circulation / tissue oxygenation
LILT is the treatment of choice for
Soft Tissue and Sports Injuries
Knee dysfunction (Meniscal/ligamentous tears)
Repetitive Stress Injuries
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Rotator Cuff Injuries
Tendonitis (supraspinatus/achilles etc.)
