If you’re living with chronic pain, you know how difficult it can be to find relief. But did you know that photobiomodulation is a natural, non-invasive therapy that can help reduce your pain? Let’s take a closer look at this promising new therapy, and how it can help you in your journey toward healing.
What is Photobiomodulation?
Photobiomodulation (PBM), also known as LED light therapy, is a fast-growing area of research that uses light to treat a wide variety of conditions. PBM works by using specific wavelengths of light to stimulate cells, improve mitochondrial function, and reduce inflammation. The light can be either red or near-infrared and is applied using medical-grade LEDs.
The Benefits of Photobiomodulation
So what can PBM do for you? Studies have found that PBM can help reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation, and promote healing and regeneration.
It can also be an effective treatment for traumatic brain injury. Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Stanford, MIT, and other top universities have committed resources toward advancing the use of PBM on the human brain.
PBM has been used to treat a variety of conditions, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, wound healing, nerve damage, and chronic pain.
PBM is a safe, non-invasive therapy with no known side effects. The process is very relaxing and gentle. It also doesn’t require the use of any drugs or other treatments and can be used in combination with other therapies.
Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM)
Light therapy reaches many mitochondria in the neurons and the endothelium (blood vessel lining) which respond to the photons by releasing of nitric oxide which is often called the “miracle molecule”. The resulting natural vasodilation increases blood flow reaching areas of the brain in need of oxygen and nutrients and inflammation levels also decrease. Nitric oxide is a signaling molecule, which also upregulates the manufacture of various healing substances including beneficial enzymes in the area where it is applied to the body.
The production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) by the cells in response to photobiomodulation therapy will greatly increase cellular energy supporting natural healing processes.
I’ve seen firsthand how effective PBM is for pain reduction and increased healing. My clients have experienced results that include: drastic improvement with eczema, quickly healed tennis elbow, pain reduction, decreased inflammation, and more.
