I have successfully been utilising Low Level Laser (LLLT) (correctly termed “Photobiomodulation Therapy”) at my practice for the last 7 years. At that time I was suffering from chronic plantar fasciitis. No matter what I did I just couldn’t shake it. It forced me to cease running for nearly 6 months and was the source of great pain and frustration.
I then stumbled upon LLLT that had shown promising results for dealing with plantar fasciitis. Unfortunately no one provided this service in Wollongong so I travelled to Sydney for a series of treatments. After six treatments I was back running again and delighted at the success of LLLT when nothing else had worked.
I was so blown away that I immediately made inquiries to THOR Laser to undertake training and subsequently purchased a THOR Laser unit. Fast forward 7 years and every week in practice my patients are shocked at the results that LLLT can have for specific conditions.
Over the years I have found LLLT to be most beneficial for:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Rotator cuff tendinosis
- Acute muscles injuries
- Early degenerative knee osteoarthritis
- Tennis elbow
In short LLLT is beneficial whenever pain and inflammation occur. It is a painless and very safe treatment option.
