Low level laser (LLL) therapy has been used for well over a decade in the United States and multiple decades throughout Europe. There is a growing body of research that shows how LLL therapy can be helpful by improving a number of factors involved in the healing process of soft tissue injuries. Such injuries often occur in runners due to the increased demands on their soft tissues and repetitive nature of their sport. This is why the nenowned coach of the Nike Oregon Project, Alberto Salazar has his elite athletes utilize this therapy. In a recent interview on the topic of LLL, coach Salazar said, "we use the lasers at the first sign of an injury to limit an exaggerated inflammatory response that can delay healing and help the athlete return to training more quickly." At Back to Health Chiropractic, we are now using this highly valuable therapy.
