Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) provides a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical intervention that is clinically proven to reduce neuropathic pain and promote tissue repair.

Peripheral neuropathy is a painful condition results from damage to the peripheral nervous system, meaning the nerves that travel from the spinal cord to the organs and limbs. Your nervous system is fragile. It can be damaged by trauma, disease, surgery, chemotherapy, or many other factors. Sometimes the cause is simply unexplained (idiopathic).

The damaged nerves can send confused or amplifies signals to the brain, which the brain perceives as pain. Most neuropathy sufferers feel acute pain in a specific part of the body. Sensations can range from electrical shock, pricking, or a steady burning.

Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage caused by diabetes. It is caused by high blood glucose levels that damage nerves and blood vessels over time. Diabetic neuropathy can occur anywhere, but it most commonly occurs in the feet, toes, hands and arms. Diabetic neuropathy of the feet is also called distal symmetric neuropathy, peripheral neuropathy, and sensorimotor neuropathy.

How Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) Works

The photon energy emitted through the low level laser pads is absorbed through the skin by a photosensitive enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase. This triggers a process called photobiomodulation.

During photobiomodulation, nitric oxide (NO) is released from the mitochondria. This increases Adenosine triphosphate, also known as ATP, a molecule that carries energy within cells. ATP increases cellular respiration, which improves circulation to the target area and reducing pain.

Photobiomodulation signals a cascade of cellular mechanisms including anti-inflammatory and tissue repair proteins.

In summary, Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT), also called Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and Cold Laser, improves symptoms of peripheral neuropathy by improving circulation, reducing inflammation, reducing pain, and promoting cell regeneration – all with virtually no negative side effects.
