Photobiomodulation, also known as low-level light therapy, is the use of light for therapeutic change in the body. By exposing the body to certain wavelengths of light, photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) can reduce pain and inflammation as well as encourage healing in wounds, tendons, muscles, nerves, and bones.
The goal of PBMT is to reduce inflammation and underlying oxidative stress by increasing circulation and energy production. PBMT is a non-invasive, drug-free procedure with no side effects.
PBMT has been studied extensively in more than 500 published double-blind, randomly-controlled studies and more than 5,000 laboratory studies. Experts have shown that photobiomodulation therapy is dose dependent, meaning the dosage of light (wavelength + exposure time) determines the outcome. Using the TheraLight 360 Light Pod, patients should need no more than 10 minutes of exposure every other day to achieve results.
PBMT has profound positive effects on a wide variety of conditions including:
- Nerve pain and nerve regeneration
- Soft tissue healing
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Sleep disturbances
- Anxiety and depression
- Improved muscle performance and recovery
Recent studies show that PBMT is also effective in improving athletic performance. PBMT can increase exercise capacity, resulting in longer exercise times; additionally, PBMT can speed up recovery by reducing production of lactic acid, creatine kinase, and c-reactive protein.
