Although initially used for treatments such as wound healing and pain relief, the uses of Laser Therapy have now broadened to address more severe items such as brain disorders and injury. Recently, Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has become a mainstream treatment modality in the treatment of stroke and traumatic brain injuries.
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), also called photobiomodulation, is an emerging treatment method that is used to address varying health conditions. Its uses lie in the treatment’s ability to stimulate healing, provide relief from pain and inflammation, and restore normal cellular function.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) through lasers, also called Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), is a rapidly growing treatment modality that finds its application in treating various musculoskeletal conditions and is noted for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects, including accelerated wound healing, tissue repair, and cellular growth. Lasers have been tested for their efficacy in the treatment of burns and burn scars with largely positive results.
According to WHO (World Health Organization), musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions affect approximately 1. 71 billion individuals worldwide and are the leading cause of disability, resulting in restricted mobility, low quality of life, and functional limitations.
If you or a loved one suffer from Small Fiber Neuropathy (SFN), or any of your patients do, you know just how painful this disorder can be. Affecting the small sensory cutaneous nerves that transmit pain and temperature information to the brain, the characteristic symptoms of SFN include unusual sensations such as tingling and prickling, pins-and-needles, sharp pricks, and even odd feelings of persistent burning and brief electric shock-like pain.
Laser Therapy or photobiomodulation poses a breakthrough in medicine as it shows promising results in treating various health concerns, such as arthritis, muscle injury, and chronic pain. The idea of the brain’s positive responsiveness to light and the potential benefits of Laser Therapy has gained momentum in recent years.
