FASTER RECOVERY

During PBM therapy, post-exercise levels of biochemical markers, Blood Lactate, Creatine Kinase, and C-Reactive Protein level, decrease significantly. There is an increase in circulation following the treatment, indicating tissues are receiving more oxygen and other nutrients important for healing—while also ridding themselves of toxic byproducts. A major typical inhibiting factor for the body’s ability to recover from a wound is low oxygen flow. Therefore, the unique ability of red light to increase flow of oxygen to the affected area has a massive effect on the healing process. Through reduction of inflammation, oxygenation of the area, and formation of new blood vessels, a rapid healing process unfolds with less pain and scarring. Red light may, therefore, be useful after surgery to stimulate stem cells to aid the repair of tissues and possibly organs.
