LOW LEVEL-LASER THERAPY
WHAT IS LOW-LEVEL LASER THERAPY?
Low-level laser therapy is a low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing while using the laser to create disturbance and signal to the brain for healing. Laser light stimulates mitochondria in target cells to produce additional ATP, which enables cell repair and regeneration. This technique is also called the “cold” laser therapy because the low levels of lights aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissues.
