What is Low Level Laser Therapy?

LLLT is the application of red and near infra-red light over injuries or lesions to:

  • improve wound and soft tissue healing
  • reduce inflammation
  • give relief for both acute and chronic pain

LLLT is used to:

  • increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair (improve cell metabolism)
  • resolve inflammation
  • relieve pain (analgesia)

LLLT is popularly used for:

  • soft tissue injuries
  • joint conditions
  • neuropathic pain
  • non-healing lesions
  • pressure ulcer

Significant reduction of inflammation equal to or better than NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs) within 2 hours, analgesic effects that last for 48 hours, healing time of chronic tendinopathies reduced by 70%.

How it works
When cells are stressed, nitric oxide (NO) inhibits oxygen consumption by mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase, a protein complex found in the bacterial membrane that produces energy. This reduces production of ATP (energy) and causes oxidative stress leading to increased inflammation and reduced production of ATP. LLLaser Therapy displaces NO from cytochrome c oxidase thereby reducing inflammation and restoring ATP production, helping tissues heal more quickly.

LLLT is safer and more effective
Over 200 LLLT clinical trials (RCTs) and over 1,000 laboratory studies have been published.  It has proven more effective and safer than pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories across a range of musculoskeletal conditions.  LLLT also improves healing and reduces muscle fatigue, muscle damage and DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness).

With over 3,000 customers using THOR lasers in 70 countries including Harvard Medical School, NASA researchers, US Navy, RAF, British Army, Royal Navy, NHS, BUPA, premier division football teams, British Lions Rugby. Thor can rightly claim to be the number one supplier in the world of LLLT technology and training.

Dr. Thomas Wachtmann
“The last couple of years, I’ve been having problems with the thoracic area of my spine. I’m a patient of Dr. Tom Wachtmann and he told me about the Cold Laser Therapy that he does, and I decided to try it. After 5 treatments, I started noticing how much better I felt. I’ve gotten more mobility and almost no discomfort. I highly recommend the procedure.” −Shirley

“The reason for coming to the office was to receive Low level Laser Therapy by Dr. Tom Wachtmann for my low back pain. The pain in my back (tightness) has diminished and my energy level has increased. Without laser treatments, the pain in my back would have continued. In a year from now, I expect greater relief from my back pain. I have spoken to family and friends stating the improvement in my low back by being treated with the laser therapy.” −R.G.
