“Dr. Joseph discovered that I was getting treated for migraines for 30 years… and didn’t even have migraines. I was misdiagnosed. It was actually a spine problem. He fixed it and as far as the pain is I bet 80% improved. I can sleep again…”

Denise, recovering from acute pain.

While the list of benefits continues to grow, it is important to understand that low-level lasers are extremely safe and effective for a wide variety of health conditions. *(a sampling of relevant papers and articles follows below).

Who Benefits from LLLT?

Frequent Asked Questions

Low level laser therapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses laser light at low levels. The light is applied to the surface skin of the body with the intention of decreasing pain or Inflammation, promoting healing of wounds, tissues, and nerves, or for preventing tissue damage. This is much different than the high-level lasers that we know for surgical procedures to cut and destroy unhealthy tissue.

Low level laser therapy is said to work through a photochemical effect (which also occurs with photosynthesis in plants). When cells inside tissue are stressed via disease and injury, the mitochondria (or powerhouse/place where metabolism takes place inside a cell) produces harmful nitric oxide.  The nitric oxide displaces needed oxygen from cells thus causing inflammation or cell death. When tissues absorb the light from the low-level laser therapy, the nitric oxide is dissociated (or irreversibly split) allowing more oxygen back into the cells and therefore increasing tissue oxygenation. Via this mechanism, cell metabolism and mitochondria function is restored allowing health of the tissue. The absorption of the light is also said to increase cell proliferation and migration(regeneration)and to modulate levels of growth factors and inflammatory mediators.

How Long, How Much?

LLLT sessions can range from 5-45 minutes, with an average of approximately 15 minutes per session (per area). In most cases, multiple sessions can be performed daily, with breaks in-between. Intensive therapy is preferred in most cases and one can receive as many as 10 or more sessions in a 5-day period without side effects to maximize the therapeutic benefits of light therapy. The duration of LLLT intervention can vary significantly from person to person depending on the severity of condition/s, number of areas being treated, response to care, etc. A trial course of 10 sessions, preceded by neurological screening evaluation, is recommended at minimum. This would be followed by assessment of progress and determination of future care. Average number of sessions across all cases is approximately 15 sessions; although many choose to continue maintenance LLLT sessions for continued benefit.
