Low level laser therapy (L.L.L.T.) also known as photobiomodulation (PBM) is a low intensity light therapy whose effect is photochemical and not thermal, that is it gives off no heat. Laser light stimulates the underlying tissues and triggers biochemical changes within the cell that can be compared to photosynthesis in plants, where light (photons) hitting the leaf of the plant are absorbed by photoreceptions, thus triggering biochemical changes.
Multiple clinical trials have shown that low level laser therapy reduces inflammation, reduces blood stasis, reduces pain, promotes tissue repair and wound healing, increases vascular regulation and collagen synthesis, promotes the healing and regeneration of skin, nerves, tendons, cartilage and bones. This makes laser therapy particularly effective for chronic conditions such as:
Laser therapy has also proven very effective in dramatically speeding up the recovery from:
Immumed uses state of the art computerized fiber optic lasers, lasers that are Health Canada approved.
