Laser (LLLT) for pain and sport injuries

Cold Laser therapy also known as low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive, pain-free, light-based therapy that uses red and infrared light to target inflamed, injured and diseased tissues. Photons of light stimulate ATP production, thereby accelerating the healing process. Patients recover from musculoskeletal and peripheral nerve injuries with less scar tissue, accelerated cell regeneration and improved function

In contrast to other therapies, Low Intensity Laser Therapy is curative rather than simply modulating symptomatology.

 

Acubalance uses the BioFlex cold laser and protocols from meditech as shown in the following videos

 

 

 

 

 

Medical Application

The potential for medical application of low intensity lasers exists in a great number of medical fields.  The musculoskeletal problems most effectively treated are:

 

General

  • repetitive stress injury
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • rotator cuff tear
  • fibromyalgia
  • reflex sympathetic dystrophy
  • temporomandibular joint problems (TMJ)

Injuries

  • ligament and tendon tears
  • fractures with associated soft tissue injuries
  • facet syndrome
  • contusions
  • bulging and herniated discs

Inflammatory

  • tendonitis
  • myositis
  • synovitis
  • bursitis
  • plantar fasciitis
  • rheumatoid arthritis
