Low Intensity Laser Therapy has been found to reduce symptoms and cure multiple pathologies within short periods of time, including all of the following:

1.      Reduction of pain.

2.      Elimination of need for drugs.

3.      Restoration of mobility (normal range of motion).

4.      Improvement in quality of life (increased activity levels, improved sleep, improvements in memory and attention)

5.      Reduced need for surgical or other invasive intervention

6.      Improvement in cognitive function

7.      Healing of skin wounds (e.g. diabetic ulcers, post-surgical wounds and scars, acceleration of recovery process, reduction in scar tissue


Science has established that LILT boosts Cytochrome C oxidase, which ultimately raises the ATP in cells of the body. ATP effects healing at the deeper cellular level – it is effective within the DNA structure. This is why it can promote health in all forms of tissue: muscle, tendons, ligaments, joints, bone, and brain.

Treatments are usually scheduled 2-3 times a week or more frequently in acute cases, at least initially. Subsequent treatments are scheduled in accord with the patient’s status. With regard to the number of treatment sessions, these may vary from 1 to 30. A minimum of 10-15 treatments is usually recommended. Before treatment is initiated the exact number of required treatments cannot be predicted, however, we expect to see change in symptomology after 3-5 sessions. As with all treatments, individual response will vary, but the vast majority of patients report remarkable improvements quite quickly.  

LILT as a treatment has been in use for many years, but came to attention of the public with the publication of “The Brain’s Way of Healing” by Normal Doidge, MD, in 2016.

The technology was greatly advanced by Dr. Fred Kahn of Toronto, a vascular and general surgeon who has devoted the last 25 years to refining the delivery and methodology of the treatment.

Under the “Patients” tab, it is well worth exploring the “Testimonials” tab, where videos and testimonials from patients and practitioners are available for viewing.  The White Papers available through this site will also provide case study reports and scientific accounts that further elucidate the applications of this modality.

In Concussion and Pain Treatment Centers, we treat in accord with Dr. Kahn’s practice, utilizing his most highly developed equipment, for best results, and we remain proudly affiliated with his practice.

Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity laser diode (250 miliwatts or less) or an array of high intensity Super Luminous Diodes (providing optical power in the 1000-2000 miliwatt range) to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions, postconcussive and other cognitive decline conditions, and to heal wounds. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function and enhancement of the body’s healing processes.
