Laser therapy involves the application of red and near-infrared light over tissue. rvh uses Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to reduce pain, increase joint range of motion, reduce inflammation, and augment the healing process. LLLT achieves these outcomes by providing additional energy to the tissue at a cellular level, which in turn speeds healing and promotes tissue responsiveness in the damaged area.
LLLT speeds healing through many different avenues. It assists in removing foreign bodies and damaged cells, and prepares the tissue for the repair process. It also helps to break in the cycle of chronic inflammation and decrease swelling.
