Low Level Laser Therapy
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is one of the most utilized pieces of equipment with our patients. LLLT works by emitting very specific, non-thermal wavelengths that are able to penetrate the skin and heal the body from a cellular level. The laser is placed over the area of dysfunction and treatment duration is determined by Dr. Bor based on the patient’s condition.
Lasers work through a process called photobiomodulation. When turned on, the laser produces a beam of light at a certain frequency that is safe for the human body. After the laser penetrates the skin, it is absorbed by cells that it is in contact with. This triggers a cascade of physiological events that increases the energy of the cells, mitochondria and ATP. With the increase in cellular function, the body is able to decrease inflammation, decrease pain, increase blood flow and increase overall efficiency.
