Low Level Laser
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is an innovative technology utilizing a wavelength of light from near infra-red spectrum (800-950). The technology has been approved by FDA and found especially useful in management of carpel tunnel syndrome, arthritis, wound care, and especially pain management. In our office, by use of this technology, we have been able to significantly improve the quality of our patients’ life, decrease the need for invasive and often expensive procedure and requirement for opiates. LLLT is completely noninvasive and painless and usually requires 5 to 15 treatments lasting for 15 to 30 minutes per session. It is also very cost effective considering therapeutic effectiveness and savings through smaller number of procedures and of medications.
