Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also known as cold laser therapy, is a medical treatment that uses low-powered lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to stimulate healing and reduce pain and inflammation. This therapy is commonly used to treat a variety of conditions such as arthritis, sports injuries, and chronic pain. However, many parents wonder whether LLLT is safe for children.
It is important to note that LLLT is a non-invasive and painless procedure that does not involve the use of drugs or surgery. The treatment is performed by a trained professional, who uses a handheld device to direct the laser or LED light onto the affected area of the body. The light penetrates the skin and stimulates cellular activity, which promotes healing and reduces inflammation.
Studies have shown that LLLT is a safe and effective treatment for children. In fact, many pediatricians and pediatric physical therapists recommend LLLT for children with a variety of conditions. For example, LLLT can be used to treat ear infections, sports injuries, and musculoskeletal conditions such as juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
One of the main benefits of LLLT is that it does not have any known side effects. Unlike drugs or surgery, LLLT does not involve the use of chemicals or invasive procedures that can harm the body. Instead, LLLT works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes, which makes it a safe and gentle treatment option for children.
Another benefit of LLLT is that it is non-invasive, which means that it does not require any incisions or needles. This can be especially important for children who may be afraid of medical procedures or who have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time. LLLT is a quick and painless procedure that can be performed in as little as 10-15 minutes.
LLLT is a cost-effective treatment option for children. Unlike drugs or surgery, which can be expensive and require multiple visits to the doctor.
