Photobiomodulation (Low-Level Laser Light Therapy)
Photobiomodulation, also known as low-level light therapy (LLLT), or cold laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses low-level lasers to stimulate the body's cells and tissues. It is believed to work by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammation, and promoting the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy molecule that powers cells.
During photobiomodulation, the laser is placed over the area being treated. The light energy is absorbed by the cells and stimulates the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a molecule that is involved in energy production in cells. This increase in ATP can help improve the function of cells and tissues, and may also stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to repair damaged tissue.
Photobiomodulation has been used to treat a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, neck and back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic pain, neuropathic pain, osteoarthritis, and
inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. It has also been used to accelerate wound healing and improve skin conditions, such as acne and rosacea. It has also been used to improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
