EFFECTIVE LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY IN BUSHEY, HERTFORDSHIRE
What Is LLLT?
LLLT is a laser or LED light therapy that improves tissue repair (skin wounds, muscle, tendon, bone, nerves), reduces inflammation, and reduces pain wherever the beam is applied. Usually applied by a doctor, therapist, or technician, treatments typically take up to 10
How Does It Work?
LLLT works predominately on a protein in mitochondria (cytochrome c oxidase) to increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress. A cascade of mitochondrial and intracellular downstream effects leads to improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation.
How Much Is Enough, How Much Is Too Much?
There is a
The Analgesic Mechanism
This depends on an LLLT overdose; Higher power density LLLT >300mW/cm² reduces ATP production in C fibres and
So There Are Actually Two Types of LLLT?
Yes, high power density is necessary for analgesia and deep tissue targets, low power density (< 100mW/cm²) is necessary to promote healing and reduce inflammation in superficial wounds, tendons and joints (the target is the synovia not the joint). We offer high and low power density for best healing, deep penetration, and analgesia.
