Low Level Laser Therapy
Also known as cold laser therapy, photobiomodulation, and a myriad of other names, low level laser therapy (LLLT) can be used in the treatment of inflammation of muscles and joints, for pain blocking and has even demonstrated positive outcomes where there diffuse lymphoedema is the result of trauma.
Tayside Chiropractic and Wellness clinic recently invested in a low level laser therapy machine and we have found that even small joints, such as toes, fingers and wrists respond extremely well. As far as we know there are no other clinics in the Perthshire area offering this therapy.
LLLT is completely painless and the duration of treatment is short. There are few contra-indications to use of this therapy. LLLT may be a useful alternative to treatments which involve soft tissue and bony manipulation which may be contra-indicated in some patients.
We are currently working to put together a more comprehensive source of information and literature for you to peruse on this page. Watch this space!
Please call the clinic to discuss whether a trial of low level laser therapy might be beneficial for you.
