Low Level Laser Therapy is nothing more than shining a high intensity light into the area of interest, it's just that this "light" is very intense, "monochromatic" (one wavelength), coherent (all the photons are in phase and synchronized) and is applied with a very specific dose in mind. It is painless, non-toxic, non-invasive, without drugs and very safe if applied by a trained practitioner.
In short, LLLT reduces healing duration 30-40% and the injured tissues are stronger than if they had not been exposed to LLLT. Listed below you'll find a brief synopsis of what LLLT is and for those wanting hard data, you'll find a number of research abstracts from PubMedline that document and prove the effectiveness of LLLT.
