REDUCE PAIN AND INFLAMMATION,
Photobiomodulation (PBM) Therapy uses near infrared (NIR) light to reduce pain, inflammation and edema, and drastically aid recovery. PBM therapy works at the cellular level, stimulating repair and normalizing cell function. The therapeutic use of visible and NIR light has been studied for almost forty years. Over 600 Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) have been published using PBM devices, and the technology has been featured in over 4,000 laboratory studies. PBM is used in thousands of clinics, hospitals and elite sports institutions in over 70 nations.
Although our PBMT device looks a bit like a tanning bed, it contains very different light sources. Tanning beds deliver primarily UV rays, which have been shown to cause oxidative stress and damage cells. Our state of the art NovoTHOR PBMT devices deliver only red and near infrared wavelengths. These are non-ionizing wavelengths, meaning they do not damage cells, but stimulate repair. PBMT does not heat tissue, it does however increase circulation so a warming sensation is often experienced.
Acute injuries and inflammation from muscle strains and sprains, cuts, bruises, burns, etc. typically show very rapid improvement and can resolve in 2-4 treatments. Long-term, chronic conditions can take as little as 12 sessions to see significant benefits. Minimum interval recommendation is 2-3 times per week until your goals are met, then 1-2 times per week for ongoing maintenance. For individuals who exercise frequently or at high levels, 3-5 times per week is recommended for optimal recovery.
We currently offer photobiomodulation therapy in Westport.
Benefits of PBMT
Photobiomodulation Therapy has been shown to stimulate cellular repair for better overall tissue recovery. This can also aid in the prevention of muscle degeneration through muscular dystrophy.
Photobiomodulation has been shown to lessen overall pain levels, while stopping pain sooner.
Improve Mood and Brain Health
PBMT has been linked to increased cerebral blood flow and brain energy metabolism, ultimately leading to diminishing the symptoms of major neurogolical disorders.
