When indicated for specific conditions, we incorporate LTU-904 Infra-Red Laser Therapy as part of our treatment. This low level laser brings about a photochemical reaction at a cellular level. The laser light penetrates into tissue where it is absorbed by cells and converted into energy that influences the course of metabolic processes.
LTU Infra-Red Laser Therapy is painless and will often bring an immediate analgesic effect at the time of treatment. It dramatically shortens recovery time with rapid reduction of swelling and inflammation.
Laser therapy is recognized and used worldwide for the treatment of numerous injuries. The 904 nanometer wavelength of the LTU models is especially effective in the treatment of:
Lymphedema • Fibrous lesions • Sprained and strained ligaments • Tendon injuries • Muscle soreness • Slow healing skin wounds • Plantar Fasciitis
