Cold Laser Therapy Pain Management Treatment – LOW LEVEL (LLLT)

Cold laser treatment is a low-power laser treatment that animates recuperating while at the same time utilizing low degrees of light.

The procedure is designated “cold” laser treatment on the grounds that the low degrees of light isn’t sufficient to warm your body’s tissue. The degree of light is low when contrasted with different types of laser treatment, for example, those used to pulverize tumors and coagulate tissue.



Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) some of the time known as Low-Level Light Therapy or Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a low force light treatment. The impact is photochemical, not warm. The light triggers biochemical changes inside cells and can be contrasted with the procedure of photosynthesis in plants, where the photons are consumed by cell photoreceptors and trigger concoction changes.

LLLT is used to: increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair; resolve inflammation and relieve pain (analgesia). The red and near infrared light commonly used in LLLT can be produced by laser or high intensity LEDs. The intensity of LLLT lasers and LED’s is not high like a surgical laser. There is no heating effect.



Lasers take a shot at two fundamental standards; they INCREASE CELLULAR REGENERATION and INCREASE CELLULAR COMMUNICATION. Your cells need vitality to recuperate. Research has demonstrated that utilization of the laser expands the vitality that is required by each cell in the body to play out each capacity, to keep up wellbeing and prosperity or to recover and mend themselves after wounds.

Since LLLT is as sheltered as it is powerful, there are no realized long haul reactions of this type of light treatment. Other than deflecting your eyes from the laser’s red or infrared light, the FDA has discovered no other warnings or unfavorable symptoms from utilizing LLLT. Since the light discharged doesn’t make your skin copy, there is no danger of agony with the exception of under specific conditions.

 Pregnancy: There is no proof of mischief to an unborn child anyway there are no security tests either, so for medico lawful reasons, we suggest not treating straightforwardly over the creating embryo. It might be utilized on the pregnant lady for the treatment of back torment and so on.

 Thyroid: There is no proof of the damage and there is some proof of advantage for treating Hashimoto’s thyroiditis with PBM. Similarly as with numerous things in life a lot of what is beneficial for us might be hurtful thus it is possible that a high force laser treatment direct to the thyroid may (briefly) animate (or repress) some thyroid movement. We propose not holding a candle to the current situation lasers legitimately over the thyroid. The THOR LED medicines are anyway moderately low force and far more averse to trigger any unfavorable occasions while treating that district of the neck.

 Tattoo: Treatment over a tattoo with higher irradiance laser may cause torment as the color retains the laser vitality and gets hot. On the off chance that treatment is difficult to expel treatment test from contact and treat ~15mm from surface of skin.
