Low Light Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a low intensity light based therapy that been used for over 40 years for management of musculoskeletal pain with increasing evidence of success. We commonly utilize LLLT in management of both acute and chronic pain, reduce inflammation, and address swelling.
LLLT is a non-invasive modality that accelerates tissue healing, reduces inflammation and provides targeted pain relief by utilizing focused light energy. Phototherapy has very similar effects & properties as LLLT while dispersing energy over a larger area. The combination of both forms of energy has a dynamic effect on combating pain, inflammation and enhancing the healing process! Discover the incredible benefits of Low-Level Laser Therapy & Phototherapy in our Upper Manhattan clinics and experience how it can enhance your physical therapy outcomes.
LLLT, also known as PhotoBioModulation (PBM), utilizes precise wavelengths and power densities of laser light to stimulate tissue repair and accelerate the healing process. Unlike surgical (traditional) lasers, LLLT emits no sound or vibration; it is a non-thermal (no heat) physical therapy modality earning it the name "Cold Laser." LLLT stimulates connective tissue repair and acts as an effective anti-inflammatory agent. With varying wavelengths between 632 to 904 nm, LLLT gently penetrates skin & soft tissue making it an ideal, pain-free treatment for rehabilitation.
Don't just take our word for it—scientific evidence supports the effectiveness of LLLT in treating musculoskeletal disorders. A systematic review from the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy confirmed that LLLT is indeed an effective treatment modality for reducing pain.
