PhotoBioModulation Therapy in London

The Injury Resolver

Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy), formerly recognised as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), stands as an advanced therapeutic method. This innovative approach involves utilising the power of red and near-infrared (NIR) light to enhance tissue repair, addressing various issues such as skin wounds, muscle strain, tendon injuries, bone concerns, and nerve-related challenges. The application of the therapeutic beam, when executed accurately, skilfully reduces inflammation and eases pain, offering a dual benefit in promoting relief and healing.

PBM primarily targets a protein in mitochondria to reduce oxidative stress and increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This initiates a cascade of mitochondrial and intracellular downstream effects, resulting in improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation. The versatility of this therapy makes it well-suited for managing both acute and chronic conditions, thereby enhancing overall well-being and the efficacy of your care plan.

It’s crucial to emphasise that the intensity of these light sources is significantly lower than that of surgical lasers, ensuring there is no tissue heating effect.

The Treatment Process

We utilise our expert clinical judgment and advanced techniques with professional-grade machines featuring wavelength ranges in the red spectrum (660nm) and near-infrared spectrum (810-940 nm). Our approach considers factors such as energy density, treatment duration, and pulsed light delivery to optimise therapeutic clinical outcomes.

Photobiomodulation Mechanisms

There are three fascinating bioenergetics pathways in PBM:

  1. Firstly, mitochondria absorb specific visible red to NIR energy, converting it into ATP for cellular energy.
  2. Secondly, this process generates mild oxidants (ROS), initiating gene transcription and facilitating cellular repair and healing.
  3. Lastly, the therapy helps unclog chains obstructed by nitric oxide (NO), releasing NO back into the system. Nitric oxide, a vital molecule our bodies naturally produce, facilitates communication among our 50 trillion cells, transmitting signals throughout the body and enhancing blood vessel dilation and circulation.

Clinically Proven Benefits

  • Pain Relief: Has been shown to effectively reduce pain associated with various conditions, including musculoskeletal pain, arthritis, neuropathy, and post-surgical pain.
  • Tissue Regeneration: Promotes tissue repair and regeneration, aiding in wound healing and tissue recovery after injuries or surgeries.
  • Reduced Inflammation: Helps in reducing inflammation and swelling, providing relief for conditions such as arthritis and inflammatory disorders.
  • Improved Circulation: Enhances blood circulation by promoting the dilation of blood vessels, which can help in conditions like poor circulation and vascular disorders.
  • Enhanced Cellular Function: Optimises cellular metabolism by increasing ATP production, supporting cell growth, and improving overall cellular function and health.
  • Neuroprotection: Has demonstrated neuroprotective effects, aiding in the preservation and protection of neurons, potentially beneficial in neurological conditions and brain injuries.
  • Reduced Muscular Fatigue: May help reduce muscle fatigue and enhance endurance, making it valuable for athletes and individuals engaged in physical activities.
  • Skin Rejuvenation: Stimulates collagen production, improves skin tone, reduces wrinkles, and enhances the overall appearance of the skin, making it a popular therapy in dermatology.
  • Management of Chronic Conditions: Has shown promise in managing chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic pain syndromes, and temporomandibular disorders.
  • Accelerated Bone Healing: Accelerates bone healing and can be used post-surgery or for fractures to promote faster recovery and bone regeneration.
  • Improved Nerve Function: Has been shown to enhance nerve function and can be beneficial for conditions involving nerve damage or neuropathies.

How PBM Complements Chiropractic Care

This therapy is often used in combination with other healing modalities and provides additional benefits, including reduced inflammation, accelerated muscle tissue healing, improved circulatory functions as well as powerful analgesic effects.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions and other therapeutic options, PBM is non-toxic, non-invasive and in over one million individual applications, no significant adverse effects have been noted.

Our advanced PBM equipment is actively in use in over 5,000 cutting-edge clinics and hospitals across more than 70 countries. It holds clearances from FDA, CE, TGA, and NATO, it is officially listed on GSA and eCAT in the United States for government procurement.

Several organisations utilise the same equipment as our practice, including:
