PBM is the application of a cold laser over body, muscle, skin or acupoints to deliver photons (little energy packets) to sick, injured or compromised cells and tissues. Doing so may produce a natural healing response and a chain of beneficial actions in different systems throughout the body.
Several cold lasers are now FDA cleared for Arthritis, temporary pain relief, increasing blood circulation and relaxing contracted tissues. Cold laser is thought to alleviate many issues that results due to inflammation because low level laser therapy is said to reduce 7 of the 9 enzymes that cause inflammation by up to 70%. Reduced inflammation may result in improved health.
Cold lasers are designed to deliver photons in specific wavelengths and research and clinical studies have show to produce positive biological actions in the body such as delivering photons to cells. The Mitochondria inside of the cells is able to absorb the photons and convert them into Adenosine TriPhosphate or ATP for short.
ATP is the primary fuel source of most cells in the body. Additionally, use of Cold Laser over specific acupoints on the body, hands and ears may stimulate the release of endorphins, which may support pain reduction and accelerated healing.
