Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMt)
Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMt) or formally known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a growing therapy in the field of modern medicine and has exciting and incredible results. The treatment modality uses Infrared Light or near Infrared Light in the form of laser or LED which can be directed or used on pretty much anything to reduce pain, inflammation, oxidative stress and speed recovery and healing. It essentially works like photosynthesis in that the body is able to absorb the energy from the light (laser or LED) and use it to repair and increase the number of Mitochondria (creates ATP) which produces the energy used by the body for everything. Where we get an injury or have pain we usually have a Mitochondrial Dysfunction. By repairing and increasing the number of mitochondria we are able to accelerate healing out of sight and decrease or eliminate pain. This therapy does not hurt and is completely pain free and suitable to use on children. This therapy is now gaining support for its use on the BRAIN!!
