LASER is the acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation The treatment-lasers used are referred to as Low Level Laser, LLLT. Laser therapy has a number of different uses, the main use is to heal and speed up recovery time in all tissue injuries.
The light from the laser provides energy to damaged cells. LLLT works predominatelyon a protein in mitochondira (cytochrome c oxidase) to increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress. A cascade of mitochondrial and intracellular downstream effects lead to improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation.
