Low Level Light Therapy
LLLT is a cutting edge therapy originally developed by NASA for use in plant growth experiments. These experiments demonstrated that LLLT boosted plant growth but simultaneously began healing the scientists’ skin lesions at a rapid rate. Because of this surprise discovery they began studying the effects of LLLT on humans and found that it improved mitochondrial energy resulting in quicker cellular repair, decreased inflammation and a decrease in oxidative stress. At Acadiana Hyperbarics we use a combination Red and infrared light pad that can be used to target areas of injury or inflammation to speed up healing and decrease pain.
Targeted Hyperbarics is a synergistic approach to healing, allowing people to experience the combined benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Infra-red and Red Light Therapy for greater localized effects and deeper penetration of healing in “problem” areas!
