Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT treatments - £22.50
(or £120.00 for a course of 6 treatments, when paid for in advance)
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) works by energising the body's cellular response to injury, and hence speeds up the natural way our body is able to repair itself. LLLT has been successfully used for a wide range chronic conditions such as plantar fasciitis and sports injuries. LLLT has been used to help reduce pain associated with a number of conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, acute and chronic neck pain and tendinopathy.
Please speak to Richard about whether LLLT is suitable for your condition.
How LLLT works
LLLT has a photo-chemical effect in the cell - especially within the energy generating mitochondria. Pulses of light can improve tissue repair and produce an anti-inflammatory effect. Pain relief can be achieved using a continuous laser beam.
When cells get stressed (due to disease, injury or ageing) the mitochondria produces nitric oxide (NO). This prevents oxygen being used to make ATP (the "energy molecule") leading to oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is thought to lead to inflammation and cell death.
LLLT of the correct wavelength and density, splits the NO molecules allowing oxygen to be used to produce more ATP, reducing oxidative stress. Once normal mitochondrial function is restored by LLLT then cell metabolism improves and patient health is enhanced.
Please note that you may need a course of treatment - typically 6 to 8 sessions for maximum benefit.
