Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is commonly used as an adjunct to Physical Therapy that applies low-level (low-power) lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to the surface of the joint/tissues. During treatment of the tissues with the laser beam, an interaction between cells and photons takes place, enhancing the healing process of the tissues. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not cause your tissues to heat up. LLLT is commonly used with success on arthritic joints and muscle tendon injuries.
