PHOTOBIOMODULATION
THERAPY

What is Photobiomodulation Therapy?
Photobiomodulation (PBM) Therapy, formerly known as Low-level Light Laser Therapy (LLLT), is the use of light (typically a low-power laser or LED) to promote tissue regeneration, reduce inflammation, or produce analgesia.
Most illnesses and degenerative disorders are thought to be caused by oxidative stress. It also has a role in the inflammatory response to acute and chronic injury. Extensive research over the last two decades has demonstrated that oxidative stress can cause chronic inflammation, which can lead to chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurological problems, and pulmonary disease.

 

Red light/near-infrared therapy has been used to treat pain, inflammation, and oedema for nearly four decades. Photobiomodulation’s effects, as scientifically defined, are photochemical, similar to photosynthesis in plants. Light decreases oxidative stress and raises ATP when applied at the proper power, frequency, and application duration. As a result, cell metabolism improves and inflammation decreases. Light is absorbed at the cellular level, lowering oxidative stress and thereby treating the source of inflammation.

Why have Photobiomodulation Therapy at Pure Medical?

Photobiomodulation Therapy stimulates cell healing and normalises cell function at the cellular level. Many treatments focus solely on the symptoms, rather than the underlying cause. Having said that, chronic degenerative alterations are frequently unable to be ‘healed,’ and must instead be controlled. Photobiomodulation Therapy is a non-pharmacological, safe, and effective technique to control pain and inflammation. Unlike drugs and surgery, Photobiomodulation Therapy:
Promotes cell regeneration
Reduces inflammation and pain
Is non-toxic
Is non-invasive
Has no side effects

How Does Photobiomodulation Therapy Work?

Photobiomodulation therapy works by causing a metabolic reaction in cells that enhances the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the cell’s powerhouse, producing the majority of the cell’s energy. ATP is the energy-carrying chemical found in all living creatures’ cells (adenosine triphosphate).

 

RLT improves mitochondrial function, allowing a cell to produce more ATP. Cells can perform more efficiently, regenerate themselves, and repair damage with more energy.

 

RLT differs from laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies in that it does not cause skin surface damage. Laser and pulsed light therapies work by inducing tissue restoration by causing controlled damage to the skin’s outer layer. RLT avoids this unpleasant process by boosting skin renewal directly. RLT emits light that penetrates around 5 millimetres beyond the skin’s surface.

What conditions does Photobiomodulation treat?

Photobiomodulation can help with a variety of medical issues, including:

What to expect when having Photobiomodulation Therapy?

The NovoTHOR Whole Body Light Pod can now give Photobiomodulation Therapy to the complete body. It is now the sole system in use in the United Kingdom. You may now get a full body light treatment that targets inflammation and accelerates repair in just 15 minutes.

 

The THOR LX2 Control Unit and its three probes can also be used for direct nerve application and trigger point therapy. These help to relieve musculoskeletal pain by reducing pain and relaxing muscle spasms. These sessions last about 10-15 minutes each site, such as the hip, knee, or ankle.

 

How many treatments will be required?
That is dependent on you and your body reacts to the treatments,  Because each person’s condition is unique, so is their treatment plan.
However, when it comes to Photobiomodulation Therapy, there are certain general guidelines to follow. Acute injuries and inflammation, such as muscle strains and sprains, cuts, bruises, and burns, usually recover quickly and heal in two to four sessions. Long-term, chronic conditions may require as many as ten sessions to achieve significant results, with weekly or bi-weekly sessions required to maintain those results.

 

If you are sick or have the following symptoms, your treatment session may be postponed.
-Severe cold or flu
-Chest infection
-Runny nose
-Sickness (nausea).

 

What will I feel?
Although Photobiomodulation Therapy does not heat tissue, it does stimulate circulation, which causes a warming sensation.
Patients have reported the following outcomes, these may not apply to everyone and they are not intended to imply, promise, represent, or assure that anyone will attain the same or similar outcomes. If any of these occur, please inform our doctor or nurses:
Increased energy, improved sleep patterns, improved mood, improved skin clarity and tone, improved bowel function, decreased edoema of limbs, greater energy, increased mental clarity, increased general sense of well-being After treatment, some customers may suffer moderate weariness, pain, or aches. If the responses don’t go away after 24-48 hours.

What are the possible
side effects of Photobiomodulation Therapy?

When administered in a regulated medical setting, Photobiomodulation therapy is both safe and painless.
On the internet, there are stories of people using Photobiomodulation systems in tanning salons and gyms who have suffered from burns and blisters. Burns was reported in a few people after they fell asleep with the unit on, while others were burned by damaged wires or gadget corrosion. There’s also a chance that your eyes will be damaged. Although less harmful to the eyes than typical lasers, red light therapy requires proper eye protection.
