Jodie and Ali are certified for Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) at the Free2move practise in North Perth.
LLLT can be helpful for pain relief, reduction in swelling, promoting tissue healing and reduction in the formation of fibrous scar tissue.
Conditions reported in the scientific literature to respond to Laser include pain relief and tissue healing, especially:
- Back Neck and Knee Pain
- Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tennis Elbow
- Ankle Sprains
- Tendinitis and Tendinosis
- Ulcers / Wound Healing
- Painful Scar Tissue
What is the Scientific Evidence for Low Level Laser Therapy?
LLLT is an emerging modality that looks like it will result in a multitude of effective new treatments. It has not yet gained widespread acceptance because the body of scientific research supporting it’s effectiveness is still small. More research needs to be done to show which conditions it is most useful for and what the doseage should be. Quite a lot of the current evidence comes from studies on animals such as mice, though there have been some encouraging human studies.
Free2Move recommends Low Level Laser Therapy as part of a normal Physiotherapy treatment programme rather than as a stand alone treatment. Because is is a relatively new treatment, results cannot be guaranteed.
