Photobiomodulation … What ???

Photobiomodulation    ….     It’s a bit of a mouthful, but this is the ‘new’ word that is now used to define all Therapies that use Light as their medium by which to affect tissue.    Thankfully it is more often than not abbreviated to ….  PBM  !!

Read the Review in the latest edition of the journal  Photobiomodulation, Photomedicine and Laser Surgery   written by its Editor-In-Cheif, Michael Hamblin

The new wording however, does not change the way light works and interacts  …  with every cell in the body.

Photobiomodulation  (aka  Laser Therapy) succeeds directly because of this intricate interaction  –  whether used to heal wounds, help control infection, strengthen tendons and ligaments or mend fractured bones.   However, it does more accurately describe the effect light has on tissue :

  Photo (light)  –  bio (of the body)  –  modulation (adjustment)

 

So there you have it  !!
