Photobiomodulation or Low-Level Laser Therapy is an alternative medicine that uses specific wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin. It can be absorbed at a depth of 8-10 millimetres, potentially reaching all layers of the skin, blood vessels and even the lymph system. Once the light is absorbed by the body, it is then converted into cellular energy, providing a therapeutic impact on cells and metabolic processes. Using photobiomodulation therapy offers a number of advantages such as:
Inflammation has a detrimental effect on our physical and mental performance. It causes pain and other various chronic diseases. Most sports medicine and physical therapy professionals suggest using low-level laser therapy to treat inflammation caused by minor injuries and sprains. This includes tendonitis, bursitis, tennis elbow and muscle spasms. It is also used to minimise swelling and promote healing of the joints and soft tissues.
Increased Athletic Performance
For athletes, training intensively, it is important to get stronger, faster and more agile as they peak for competition. Using low-level laser light before training can relieve any musculo-skeletal pain. LLLT also has a protective effect on the muscles, reducing oxidative damage and protecting against fatigue.
As we age, the amount of collagen in our body naturally decreases. This causes fine lines and wrinkles to be highly visible on our skin. With the help of laser light therapy, it stimulates collagen production, reducing or delaying some of the visible signs of ageing. However, some collagen cells grow slowly so it will take some time before results can be seen.
