Musculoskeletal injuries such as torn muscles and ligaments, inflammation, aches, strains, and pains can be a source of discomfort, frustration, and inactivity for athletes and non-athletes alike. These injuries are slow to heal and often require long-term therapy. However, use of a combination of traditional and non-traditional treatment approaches can greatly improve the healing rate and reduce the chances of recurrence. Low level laser therapy for injury recovery is one of the many alternative therapies that has proven to be effective in the treatment of many musculoskeletal injuries. Athletes, who want to avoid invasive surgery or do not want to bear the consequences of strong medications, can greatly benefit from LLLT for a quick and side effect free injury recovery.
The Benefits | Low Level Laser Therapy for Injury Recovery
The main goal of any muscle injury recovery process is to bring the patient back to their normal active state as soon as possible. For this purpose, many therapists use a number of different treatment options to accelerate the muscle recovery process and promote muscle regeneration and reduction of inflammation. Low level laser therapy for injury recovery is a relatively new way to provide pain relief and injury recovery. It uses light (of a particular wavelength and intensity) to enhance the body’s natural healing processes. The benefits of LLLT include:
- accelerated healing time from injury
- reduced pain and inflammation
- speeds up tissue repair and regeneration
- reduced scar tissue formation
