Light Therapy: Photobiomodulation Therapy

In recent years, photobiomodulation therapy (PBM) has gained significant attention in the medical community for its potential in treating various types of pain, including both acute and chronic conditions.

Light Therapy: Photobiomodulation Therapy in Pinehurst

This non-invasive treatment involves the use of low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes to stimulate healing at the cellular level, resulting in reduced inflammation and pain relief. At Smiles in the Pines, Dr. Streets utilizes the most advanced Summus Medical Laser, which targets specific areas of the body for pain management.

One of the key benefits of photobiomodulation therapy is its ability to increase blood flow and tissue repair, leading to faster healing and reduced recovery time. By targeting specific areas of the body with red light therapy, patients experience the benefits of:

  • Enhanced Tissues Healing
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Increased Circulation
  • Reduced Pain

Studies have shown that photobiomodulation therapy can be effective in treating a wide range of pain conditions, including neuropathy, arthritis, and sports injuries. In addition, it can reduce time in orthodontic braces or clear aligners, and expedites healing after surgical treatments like gum graft, teeth extractions, and tongue-tie releases.

Its ability to reduce inflammation and stimulate healing makes it a promising alternative for those seeking natural pain management solutions.

Aside from a mild, soothing warmth, there is little to no sensation during treatment. Results may occur after the very first session – each treatment is cumulative so additional treatments to the site may be beneficial.

Dr. Streets has programmed custom settings in order to deliver appropriate light therapy doses to babies, toddlers and adults.
