PBMT, formally known as low-level light therapy (LLLT), is used to improve conditions that require stimulation of healing, relief of pain and inflammation and restoration of function.
More about how Photobiomodulation (PBMT) works
PBMT emits low levels of light that are absorbed by your mitochondria (the energy-producing organelles in your cells), which can increase cellular production and heal surrounding tissue. PBMT regenerates tissue, reduces inflammation, decreases pain and increases immunity which may provide an effective alternative to surgery or medications and there are no accompanying side effects.
Overall health and wellness that PBMT benefits:
- Reducing inflammation
- Wound healing
- Tissue growth and repair
- Hair growth
- Skin conditions
- Vision disorders
- Injuries to tissues and tendons
- Pain relief
Listen to what Dr. Saputo has to say about the effects of Infrared Light Therapy for pain management.
“Infrared light therapy is a very powerful new technology that relieves pain from most conditions including neuropathic pain. The use of an infrared scanner to monitor skin thermal changes in real time is essential to achieve safe and effective treatment.” This video gives examples of its application.
According to Dr. Saputo, its use in the treatment of cancer pain is surprising. He says this technology is also amazing for sports injury’s.
