Laser – Not your childhood cat toy!
There are a few therapies that can puzzle people because we can’t “feel” them. Ultrasound is one and low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is another. You don’t feel a sunburn while it’s happening but you sure can feel the effects after the fact! The same goes for LLLT.
LLT has revolutionized sports medicine and sports injury treatment over the last 10 years. LLLT has seen widespread use and effectiveness in professional sports. Players from the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, Olympics, US Cycling, runners as well as college and amateur athletes around the world have discovered the benefits of laser therapy.
Sports injuries aren’t the only things that benefit from LLLT. I’ve used laser therapy for arthritis, headaches, sinus inflammation, gum inflammation, shingles, TMJ pain, planter fasciitis, low back pain, post surgical wound healing and many other problems. Like any therapy, it’s not the end all be all for every problem, but it does work. It’s great to have another tool in my tool box to help my patients. Ask about LLLT and what it might be able to do for you.
