Low Level Laser Treatment (LLT)

At OPTRA Care, we regularly use Cold Laser therapy to treat acute and chronic joint and muscular pain. Cold laser therapy is a newer procedure in Pain Management Technologies. It is an option among variety of treatment approaches that can potentially provide pain relief, especially for those patients who are seeking a treatment without the use of surgery or drugs e.g. patients with Osteoarthritis. This laser therapy is low-intensity therapy that stimulates healing with low levels of light. It is an alternate to medicine treatment. It is a method of exposing tissues to low levels of red and near-infrared light. The levels are low in comparison to other laser therapies. It is also referred to as low level laser therapy (LLLT) or soft laser therapy.

What is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLT)?

LLLT works on the principle of Photo-bio-modulation, which means using light to accelerate and promote the healing capacity of inflamed and damaged cells in a natural way. The light energy gets converted into cellular energy, which fuels the healing mechanisms.

A hand-held probe is used to deliver the LASER light to the affected area by placing it directly over the skin. The patient does not feel anything, apart from a little warmth over and around the area being treated. LASER beam penetrates deep into the skin, reaching the affected muscle or joints, leading to pain relief and reduced inflammation. Each treatment session lasts from 15 min to 20 min. Also, LLLT does not have any side effects, our therapists and patients use protective glasses for everyone’s safety. Our machine is completely FDA compliant.

LLLT is an evidence-based treatment of many Orthopedic, Muscular and Neurological Conditions.  Physiotherapists at Optra Care will assess you in a comprehensive way to ascertain the requirement of LASER therapy and develop a complete protocol for making you functional as well as pain-free.
