Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), also known as "cold laser" or "low level laser" therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-level light energy to promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation. In the field of neurology, LLLT has been studied for a variety of conditions, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, peripheral neuropathy, and Alzheimer's disease, among others. One area of research has been the use of LLLT for stroke rehabilitation. Some studies have suggested that LLLT may help improve motor function and reduce spasticity in stroke patients. Other studies have looked at the use of LLLT for traumatic brain injury, with some suggesting that it may help reduce brain damage and improve cognitive function. LLLT has also been studied for peripheral neuropathy, a condition in which nerves in the extremities are damaged, resulting in pain, numbness, and tingling. Some studies have suggested that LLLT may help reduce pain and improve nerve function in these patients. Finally, LLLT has also been studied for Alzheimer's disease. While the evidence is limited, some studies have suggested that LLLT may help improve cognitive function and reduce inflammation in the brain. Overall, while the use of LLLT in neurology is still a relatively new area of research, there is some evidence to suggest that it may be a safe and effective treatment option for certain neurological conditions. However, more research is needed to fully understand its potential benefits and limitations. The use of photobiomodulation therapy in neurological conditions is not FDA approved, despite its safety and efficacy profile demonstrated in many clinical trials.
