(LLLT) Low Level Laser Therapy/Photobiomodulation

Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy is a safe, non-invasive, and non-thermal modality that is based on a strong body of research dating back to the 1960s. Also known as low-level laser (or light) therapy, it uses either visible red or near-infrared (NIR) light to stimulate, heal, and repair damaged or dying tissue cells.(Saltmarches et al 2016)

How Does Laser Therapy Help Heal?

  1. Red & Infrared Light releases Nitric Oxide from the blood which in return Improves circulation, lymphatic activity, Phagocytosis, Osteoblasts, RNA-DNA Synthesis & stimulates Collagen and Fibroblastic Activity.
  2. LLLT has an anti-inflammatory aspect which makes it ideal for patients with chronic inflammatory diseases.
  • For neuro inflammation,
  • Orthopedics
  • auto immune conditions.

How Low Light Laser Therapy works

  • Increases Oxygen in the blood accelerating the healing rate of tissue
  • Softening scar tissue, and enhances elasticity of the tissue.
  • Aids in the repair of muscle damage by regeneration of muscle tissue.
  • Increases ATP production
  • Tissue & Nerve Regeneration
  • Collagen, Cartilage, Bone Regeneration
  • Reduction in inflammation, Edema, Pain
