Benefits of Low Intensity Laser Therapy
Through the action of photo-bio-stimulation of light reactive biological receptors (chromophores) in the body, Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) significantly accelerates and enhances the body’s natural defense. It repairs components in the presence of injury, inflammation, and certain disease processes. By modifying the effects and limiting the duration of inflammation as well as enhancing specific repair and healing processes, LILT is consistent in providing pain relief, reducing injury damage and loss of function, in addition to facilitating more rapid repair and stronger healed tissue structures.
