Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) for treating Achilles’ tendonitis

At Eravio Hospital, we use the Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to treat Achilles tendonitis. For the same, we use the Lasotronix Laser Smart M 980 nm laser diode.

This treatment includes the following steps:

The treatment has the following steps:

  • The doctor places infra-red laser diode powered at low intensity (980 nm) at the shoulder where it pain.
  • The photons from the laser energy enter the mitochondria of the cells in the affected tissue.
  • The energy from the photons powers the mitochondria, allowing them to heal themselves. This reduces the inflammation and the resulting pain.

Other than LLLT, the doctors will also recommend a set of exercises and precautionary measures to be taken alongside the Achilles treatment.

Benefits of LLLT for treating Achilles’ tendonitis

  • Non-invasive therapy.
  • Quick recovery.
  • No scarring.
  • No adverse effects.
  • Lesser risk of recurrence if proper care is taken.
