What is Lower Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)?

Lower Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), Cold Laser and PhotoBioModulation (PBM) are all terms used to describe the use of specific frequencies and pulses of intense, energized light in the painless treatment of tissue repair, reduction of inflammation and pain relief.  As such, the accepted name for this treatment is now Photobiomodulation (PBM).  To clarify, it only takes a few minutes to deliver these safe and effective treatments.  But, they can be used for both the short-term relief of acute pain as well as safely long-term on chronic conditions and pain relief.

Originally discovered in the 1960s, more recent research and development have led to the use of PBM now being used in over 70 countries.  As a result, PBM has been adopted by many institutions including NASA, Harvard Medical School and armed forces in the USA.  Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom, The Royal Navy, The British Army, The Royal Air Force, The National Health Service (NHS), BUPA, Premier Division Football teams and British Lions Rugby, all use LLLT/PBM.
