From A to Z, What Can LLLT Help You With?

Pain comes in so many different forms. There is acute and chronic pain, nerve, joint, and muscle pain, and the list goes on and on. Pain can also be caused by a variety of factors including accidents, sports-related injuries, chronic illness, poor posture, etc. While there are many forms of pain relief out there, there are few that come with little to no side effects or cost an arm and a leg. 


LLLT (low-level laser therapy) for pain relief is becoming increasingly popular. Why? LLLT technology has little to no short and long-term symptoms and although it does come with an upfront cost, it can save you money in the long run. If you’ve been struggling with your pain and have yet to find a solution that works for you, LLLT might just be the answer.


With that being said, here are the various types of pain low-level laser therapy devices can help with:


Muscle and joint pain caused by chronic conditions


Chronic pain is classified as pain that lasts for 3 or more months. While chronic pain can be caused by accidents and injuries, the common culprit is chronic conditions. 


Common chronic conditions (say that 3 times fast!) that impact the muscles and joints include:


  • Arthritis

  • Bursitis

  • Tendonitis

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Osteoarthritis


These conditions can cause mild to severe pain in various parts of your body. For some conditions, the pain is triggered by certain factors and for others, the pain is sporadic. These conditions do, however, have one thing in common. The impact the muscles and joints and can cause an array of symptoms beyond pain including inflammation, discomfort, and decreased range of mobility. 


When it comes to chronic pain, consistent treatment from a health care provider can be very costly and recurrent use of pain medication can have potentially harmful effects on the body following long-term use. LLLT technology is safe to use for chronic conditions and won’t pose any negative ramifications down the road. It also comes at a one time cost meaning it won’t hurt your wallet every time you look for relief!


Muscle and joint pain associated with motor vehicle accidents


Car accidents are a terrifying and traumatic experience. Some escape with little to no injuries while others meet fates less than ideal. The most common injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents impact the muscles and joints. In some instances, people are aware of when a collision is about to occur that will involve them in a second or less. Within this second, many brace for impact and their bodies stiffen up, a common response. Upon impact, the muscles are tight and more susceptible to injury when compared to those whose muscles are relaxed.


What mild to moderate injuries impacting the muscles and joints are commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents?


  • Whiplash

  • Strains

  • Sprains

  • Neck and back injuries


LLLT technology can aid with these varying injuries and can help restore tissue and promote cell growth. Because some people have some lasting pain after a car accident, they may look for pain relief more frequently. LLLT can help alleviate pain at any post-accident stage.


Sports-related injuries


Whether you are an athlete yourself or you like to watch sports on TV, you know that injuries are a common occurrence in sports. Athletes are constantly pushing their bodies and utilizing them to succeed in their sport, hence why they are more susceptible to injuries. Think about it this way: a car driving at its maximum speed every day is more prone to breaking down than a car driving at a lower speed every day. 


Because athletes rely on their bodies for performance in their field, injuries can be life-changing and impact more than just their bodies. It’s essential for athletes to find a method of recovery that is fast and effective so they can get back to their sport as soon as possible. LLLT accelerates tissue recovery and improves overall microcirculation, acting fast to help athletes get back to doing what they love.


Conditions that impact the nerves

LLLT goes beyond helping just the muscles and joints. It can help those suffering from nerve conditions find relief as well. 


Common nerve conditions include:


  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Postherpetic neuralgia

  • Peripheral neuropathy

  • Sciatic pain


These conditions impact the nerve and can cause a roster of symptoms including pain, tinglingly, numbness, loss of range of motion, decreased motor skills, and inflammation. LLLT can help in the repair of damaged nerves and help alleviate the pesky symptoms associated with nerve disorders. 


Low-level laser therapy can help with a host of chronic and acute conditions and injuries. From muscle pain caused by a freak accident to nerve damage caused by an underlying condition, LLLT helps from the inside out - repairing and restoring rather than simply masking pain. If you are suffering from pain, acute or chronic, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional before anything to rule out any serious causes or conditions, of course.
