Low Level Laser Therapy, commonly known as LLLT, cold or soft laser, or laser photobiostimulation, is a form of phototherapy which involves the application of monochromatic and coherent light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing.
Laser therapy is used to increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation, and give pain relief.
The laser we use at Advantage Healthcare and Physiotherapy is a powerful deep penetrating 780-830nm Infra-Red Gallium Laser, which research shows produces the best outcomes in laser therapy.
