Low Level Laser & LED Light Therapy
LL Lasers and LEDs produce intense beams of light at specific wavelengths. When the right wavelength at the right intensity is used at the correct anatomical location for the right amount of time, it stimulates healing, resolves inflammation and reduces pain – without medication.
LL Laser and LED Light can be used to treat a growing list of medical conditions, such as
• Osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease
• Muscle, tendon & ligament injuries
• Wound healing
• Eye injuries
• Chronic renal disease
• Other medical issues involving inflammation and pain
