What is PBMT?

PBMT is a Light Therapy that uses Lasers and LEDs to heal medical conditions. It is also called Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), however Academics have adopted PBMT.

  • Photo means Light
  • Bio means Life, and;
  • Modulation means to Stimulate and Change.

With over 50 years of scientific study, PBMT has been proven to reduce pain, improve function, repair tissue and more.

How does it work?

Your body runs on energy called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

Inside each cell an organelle called mitochondria produces ATP by combining the food that you eat with the oxygen you breath.

Overtime and under damage or stress, nitric oxide builds up in your cells and blocks oxygen from binding with your mitochondria.

When this happens your mitochondria produce less ATP and your cell loses optimal function.

When billions of cells are affected, injuries take longer to heal, ageing is accelerated, and the immune system becomes impaired.

This is where PBMT comes in!

During your treatment light photons enter your cell and displace nitric oxide from your mitochondria.

This allows oxygen to bind and your mitochondria is able to produce higher amounts of ATP.

With this renewed energy the optimal function of your cell is restored and your body will heal itself!

Commonly Asked Questions

What is PBMT/LLLT?

PBMT / LLLT is a laser or LED light therapy that improves tissue repair (skin wounds, muscle, tendon, bone, nerves), reduces inflammation and reduces pain wherever the beam is applied. Usually applied by a doctor, therapist or technician, treatments typically take 10 – 20 minutes and should be applied as recommended for your specific needs.

What conditions can PBMT help with?

As the function of PBMT is to improve the energy production of each cell, ultimately every ailment can be helped by this therapy, both acute and chronic in nature.

The following is a short (not exhaustive) list of example conditions:

  • Musculoskeletal – Muscle, joint, bone, tendon injury and pain. Traumatic brain injury including concussion and whiplash. Neck and back pain. Stiffness and swelling. Post-exercise muscle recovery.
  • Skin and hair – wounds, hair loss and multiple dermatological conditions.
  • Nerve – Diminished motor and sensory function, including symptoms of burning, tingling, numbness, pain and fatigue.
  • Oral – Dental and mucousitis: painful tongue, cheeks and dryness.
  • Inflammation – specific and localized; acute and chronic.

Does the treatment hurt or burn?

PBMT is non invasive and uses a cold laser, it does not burn the skin or cause pain on application. You may feel a very slight warmth during the session. Laser treatments over dark hair or tattoos may produce a prickly sensation.

How many treatments do I need?

Everyone’s condition, history and immune system is different.  Therefore, the amount of treatments will vary from case to case.  In your PBM Consult with our MD, you will be evaluated and have a recommended treatment plan that will address your specific needs.
