The new guide provides the latest information on photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), which uses low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to hasten tissue healing while relieving pain.

PBMT is a relatively new, drug-free, painless, non-invasive treatment that has been shown to be effective in treating arthritis, chronic pain, inflammation, migraines, and more. It has been FDA-approved for some conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, and lower back pain.
PBMT uses red or near-infrared light and does not need heat or untraviolet light to promote healing. According to the principle of photobiomodulation, certain light wavelengths can promote cell growth and repair.
Scientists are not completely certain how it works, but the guide explains that PBMT is thought to stimulate the brain’s mitochondria to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an organic compound that drives the functioning of many cell processes. As cellular processes are stimulated, blood flow increases, resulting in reduced inflammation and healing.
Preliminary research has shown that PBMT may help improve cognitive function and reduce inflammation in the brain. It has even been shown to reduce anxiety and depression and is currently being studied to determine whether it can help patients with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological conditions.
Since PBMT produces an increase in collagen and elastin, it is also becoming very popular for elective procedures to treat wrinkles, sunspots, scars, Rosacea, hair loss, and acne.
The guide reports that PBMT can have mild side effects, including minor skin irritation or redness that goes away quickly on its own. Serious side effects are very rare.
Knees Central is a website dedicated to providing information on all aspects of knee pain, including causes, prevention, and treatment. It aims to keep readers up to date on the latest therapies that can help pain sufferers.
A spokesperson for Knees Central states, “While photobiomodulation therapy is generally considered to be safe, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional before beginning any new treatment. PBMT can be a safe and effective way to improve your health.”
