Low Level Laser TherapyKatherine, Northern Territory

What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also known as Cold Laser Therapy or Photobiomodulation. This painless and non-invasive therapy uses light to promote healing at the cellular level in response to pain, inflammation, swelling and muscular spasm whilst increasing oxygen levels to sick and injured cells. Our super pulsed 50w laser is approved and registered by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and produces no heat, but is powerful enough to penetrate up to 12cm into the body.

 

How does Low Level Laser Therapy work?

When LLLT is applied to the skin, light is absorbed by the damaged cells. This in turn triggers a reaction in the mitochondria (the powerhouse of our cells) to produce more energy, stimulating the body’s immune response and increasing blood supply to the damaged cells, increasing tissue repair and reducing inflammation, swelling and pain. It targets the underlying condition or pathology to promote healing, which means the results are effective and long lasting. 

Athletes also love the benefits that Low Level Therapy has to offer. In addition to the benefits outlined above, Low Level Laser Therapy:
