Low-Level Light Therapeutic Laser Therapy uses photons of light to heal tissue, decrease inflammation, reduce scar tissue formation, increase cell growth and repair, and stimulate ATP production–the energy currency of the body. This gentle and safe technology accelerates the healing process throughout the body.
Low-Level Light Laser Therapy is changing the way we treat pain and inflammation in the body by using light. Cells within the body contain enzymes that are activated by wavelengths of light and produce energy to heal. Light is transmitted through the skin’s layers, penetrating deeply into the body’s tissues. When Low-Level Laser light waves penetrate the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both anti-inflammatory and immune-stimulating effects by supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell.
Therapeutic Laser Therapy has been proven to benefit the following:
- Post stroke recovery
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Acne scars
- Hypertrophic scars
- Pigmentary disorders (such as vitiligo)
- Autoimmune disease
- Sports injuries
- Hair loss
- Muscle spasm
- And more…..

Role of Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in Neurorehabilitation:
“LLLT uses low-powered laser light in the range of 1-1000 mW, at wavelengths from 632-1064 nm, to stimulate a biological response. These lasers emit no heat, sound, or vibration. Instead of generating a thermal effect, LLLT acts by inducing a photochemical reaction in the cell, a process referred to as biostimulation or photobiomodulation. Photo-biology works on the principle that, when light hits certain molecules called chromophores, the photon energy causes electrons to be excited and jump from low-energy orbits to higher-energy orbits.”
