LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY (LLLT)
We are delighted we are now able to offer Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) at the Exmouth Chiropractic Clinic. LLLT is a great supplement to Chiropractic treatment because it is a remarkably safe, painless and effective way of treating a wide range of clinical conditions including strains and sprains of tendons or muscles (tendinopathies), strains and sprains, neck pain, lower back pain, post operative pain, osteoarthritis and tissue damage.
We have the state of the art THOR Laser as used by clinical and medical establishments worldwide including NASA, The Royal Navy, the British Army and Manchester United football club.
The treatment involves using Laser and LED light beams in the near infra red spectrum which have been shown to stimulate and repair tissue as well as reduce inflammation and pain. It is effective for slow healing wounds, chronic pain and acute soft tissue injuries.
LLLT works by supplying photons of light at the near infra red frequency of 810 nm, which has been shown to stimulate the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is the “fuel” for our cells. This gives the cells more energy to be able to heal and repair.
There have been more than 200 randomised clinical trials and over 1000 laboratory studies published that have proven it to be effective and safe with minimal or no side effects.
