Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM)
“Healing with Light”
“Matter is Energy
Energy is Light
We are all Light Beings”
Photobiomodulation Therapy is the latest and most advanced source of intracellular pure light energy used for normalising damaged/injured tissue, pain relief and oedema reduction. It is completely safe, non-thermal, non-toxic with no side effects and can be curative in some cases.
“Oxidative stress in the underlying trigger
for most diseases”
Laser Therapy may be the answer to healing many conditions when other therapies have failed. The body can be resistant to resolving disease through traditional methods or medication and this is where photobiomodulation treatment has an advantage.
How does the therapy work?
The food we eat, the air we breathe is combined within our cells to create cellular energy called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). When cells become damaged from an injury, environmental pollution, unhealthy diet/lifestyle, volatile free radical production increases (ROS). Oxidative stress are the underlying reason for many degenerative conditions, acute/chronic inflammation and the ageing process. When the correct light intensity and dosage is applied directly to stressed cells the ATP molecules increase, ROS molecules decrease and the cells rejuvenate, heal and return to their original state.
How will it help me?
PBM Therapy can be used successfully to help treat a range of painful conditions, from sudden (acute) or persistent (chronic) pain often measured in months. The application of continuous or pulsed red/infrared laser light slows down the transport of energy along the nerves reducing pain, oedema (swelling) and muscle spasms.
How does Photobiomodulation Treatment compare to other therapies?
Many therapies only address presenting symptoms without seeking the source. PBM works at a cellular level. However, chronic degenerative changes often cannot be healed but can be managed effectively and safely the non-pharmaceutical way to control pain and inflammation.
What conditions can PBM help?
Any acute/chronic condition non-specific neck/back pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, tendinopathies, neuropathic pain, migraine, muscle and nerve root pain like sciatica, plantar fasciitis, gout, toothache and many more.
Can it manage my swelling and Lymphoedema?
Clinical evidence has shown PBM improves lymphatic flow, reduces fluid volume, softens thickened fibrotic tissue and reduces the inflammation leading to risk infections like cellulitis.
Will it reduce visible signs of ageing?
Collagen production slows as we get older, skin is exposed to light more than any other organ in the body and damage only becomes visible as we age. Photobiomodulation Therapy has an excellent effect on the production of collagen and has shown improvement in decreasing wrinkles, crow’s feet, restoring flow, improving the microcirculation, helping hypertrophic scars, burns and also inflammatory diseases such as acne, rosacea and psoriasis.
Why have I not heard of PBM before, how do I know if it is real?
There are over 400 randomised controlled trials using this therapy and over 4000 featured in laboratory studies. Photobiomodulation Therapy is used in thousands of clinics, NHS hospitals and Sports Institutions in the UK and overseas.
