Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) / Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy)


Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) / Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy)

We able to use Low Level Laser to perform PBM therapy which has shown elicit several potentially beneficial effects, including reduction of inflammation and pain, promotion of tissue repair, reduction of fibrosis, and protection and regeneration of nerves.
