FAQs:
Q: What is Low Intensity Laser Therapy?
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity laser diode(250 mW or less) or an array of high intensity super-luminous diodes(providing total optical power in the 10-2000 mW range) to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions and to heal wounds.

The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular bio-molecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell morphology and function. This process also enhances the body�s natural healing propensities.
Q: How long does a treatment take?
Treatments are typically 15 minutes to one hour in length and a treatment program statistically requires an average of 10 treatments.
Q: What does Low Intensity Laser Therapy do?
By affecting and reversing the offending pathology at the cellular level, laser therapy optimizes the restoration of injured tissues to function normally, thereby alleviating the symptom of pain. The beneficial effects of laser therapy are cumulative over the course of a series of treatments.
Q: Are there any contraindications?
Yes. The basic contraindications are:
  1. patients on photoactive medication
  2. Women in their first trimester of pregnancy
