Low-level laser therapy (lllt), is directed at the area of discomfort and have shown pain relief and improvement in function up to one year following treatment.
High level therapy is tried in several pain centers and claim fda approved. Most of the leterature does not recommend laser therapy and is still in research and is ongoing. Works by generating heat, increasing atp level theoretically.
