Thor Low Level Laser Therapy

The Thor low level laser therapy system is a ground breaking new technology that provides laser pain relief and healing with no side effects. This makes it an excellent alternative to NSAIDs, especially for chronic pain where prolonged NSAID use can lead to kidney, stomach and cardiovascular damage.

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilises specific wave lengths of light to reduce inflammation, swelling and pain and promote healing in soft tissue.

How Does it work?

  • Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilises specific wave lengths of light to reduce inflammation, swelling and pain and promote healing in soft tissue.
  • As the light enters the body, it is absorbed by cells, predominantly the mitochondria.
  • When cells become stressed as a result of injury, disease or ageing it increases the free radical production in the body which increases the rates of inflammation and cell stress.
  • The treatments only last a few minutes and can be applied two or more times per week.

What conditions can be treated with the THOR laser?

  • Plantar fasciitis (heel spurs)
  • Achille tendinopathy
  • Shin Splints
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome (Nerve pain)
  • Muscle strains and cramping
  • Ankle ligament sprains
  • Trigger points in muscles of the lower limb
