If you are like most people, when you hear the word LASER as an answer for pain relief, you probably turn the other way! You may think of invasive surgical procedures or even burning beams of light. Well, there is a form of laser treatment that is non-invasive, pain free and proven effective to improve tissue healing, restore function and eliminate pain. Enter: Low Level Laser Therapy!
MyoFit Clinic uses Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and this type of laser is based on the beneficial use of light for the purpose of healing. LLLT involves the application of laser light to enhance the body’s natural healing processes. The word LASER is an acronym that stands for: Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The light is placed in contact with the skin, which allows light photons to penetrate tissues and trigger normal cellular function.
LLLT is non-invasive and does not break the skin. Low level laser pulses can be modified to penetrate more deeply or superficially, depending on the structures being treated. Once the light energy reaches the cells, they are stimulated to activate natural healing processes. This leads to pain reduction, increased blood flow and soft tissue repair. LLLT is the only modality that actually jump-starts cellular repair!
