There is a large body of published clinical evidence for the effects of PBM Therapy, previously known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) on musculoskeletal pain.
Reviews published by the Lancet, BMJ, International Association for the Study of Pain show that PBM improves the speed and quality of tissue repair, reduces inflammation and has an analgesic action.
The European Society for Medical Oncology suggests using PBM to reduce the incidence of oral mucositis and its associated pain, in patients receiving high-dose chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy.
There is growing evidence that PBM works well on a range of oral pathologies, and is beneficial for orthodontic procedures and orofacial pain syndromes.
PBM can also reduce the use of anesthesia for children and be used to reduce the local discomfort of injections.
