Thor Laser Therapy
Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy) also known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is laser therapy that may support tissue repair, inflammation and pain wherever the beam is applied. Applied by a therapist or technician, treatments are quick, noninvasive and should be applied two or more times a week for best results.
How does PBM work?
PBM works predominately on a protein in mitochondria (cytochrome c oxidase) to increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress. Research has shown that a cascade of mitochondrial and intracellular downstream effects may lead to improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation.
Lasers produce intense beams of light at specific wavelengths. When the right wavelength at the right intensity is used at the correct anatomical location for the right amount of time, it may help stimulate repair, may reduce inflammation and pain.
PBM is safe and won’t damage the DNA of skin cells and does not cause tanning or burning. The effects happen deep inside at the cellular level.
