Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a low-energy laser application (soft laser) that can be used to irradiate the affected joints, nerves, muscles, skin areas or tendons without thermal damage. The therapy activates a number of stimulating processes at the cellular level. These processes, in turn, have a positive effect on cell repair mechanisms as well as on the vascular and lymphatic systems. Due to the high energy density, the healing process for certain diseases can be massively accelerated or set in motion with the laser light of the low-level laser therapy.
Due to the combination of the red and infrared wavelengths, the low-level laser therapy is particularly suitable for treating joints, muscles and tendons. Due to its special physical properties, laser light is charged with a lot of energy. The infrared laser has a greater penetration depth than the red laser and thus reaches deeper tissue layers. The radiation influences the metabolism of the cell and serves to regulate the cell, biomechanical processes are set in motion. The combination of both wavelengths is particularly efficient and is recommended for the treatment of orthopedic and sports medicine indications.
The low level laser therapy has a regenerative, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effect. The laser supplies the tissue with additional energy and stimulates biochemical regeneration processes. These have a blood circulation-increasing, anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving and decongestant effect.
Advantages over conventional treatment methods:
- Non-invasive approach – as opposed to injections of cortisone preparations,
surgical joint replacement or joint fusion
- Pain reliever with no known side effects
- Lasting healing effect beyond the therapy period
- A proven and pain-free therapy
- Fights inflammation
- Accelerates tissue regeneration
- There are no known side effects
Laser therapy is used for the following complaints, among others
- Arthritis and osteoarthritis
- Tendonitis (e.g. Achilles tendon)
- Muscle injuries
- Nerve regeneration
- Bone fractures and bone edema
- Neck and back pain
- Faster rehabilitation after surgery on the musculoskeletal system
Why laser therapy in orthopedics?
Laser therapy achieves fast and lasting healing effects in chronic and acute functional disorders of the joints, in muscle injuries, as well as in tendinitis and tendon injuries. It also supports muscle regeneration after physical activity. Due to their pain-relieving effect, the use of painkillers can be reduced.
When should Low Level Laser Therapy not be used?
- No radiation of the thyroid gland with known malfunction
- No radiation in the lower abdomen and lumbar region during pregnancy
- No irradiation of testicles or ovaries
- No irradiation of moles and malignant areas
- No radiation in the eye area

How many sessions ?
The number of treatments depends on the indication and the individual healing success. The first results are usually visible after just a few applications.
