Low Intensity Laser Therapy or Low Intensity Light Therapy (LILT) is a therapeutic application that uses light emission from a low intensity laser device. These particles of light energy are absorbed within the cell - a process which initiates a number of positive physiological responses that enhances the body’s natural healing processes and helps to restore normal cell structure and function.
LILT can be used in the treatment of a variety of conditions including, but not limited to:
Repetitive Stress injuries (“Tennis Elbow”, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis)
Inflammatory Conditions (Bursitis, Synovitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Wound healing)
Degenerative Conditions (Osteoarthritis, Bone Spurs, Chondromalacia Patella, Radiculopathy)
Injuries (Ligament and tendon tears, Rotator cuff injury, Contusions, Facet joint syndrome, Disc injury)
Laser treatment sessions are available, by appointment, at the Bison Athletic Therapy Centre on campus. Sessions are $25 per visit (maximum 30 minutes). Physician referral required for Laser treatments. Please call 474-6956 to set up an appointment.
