Effective Pain Management with Thor Laser Therapy
We are delighted to provide our patients with an effective pain management with the THOR LASER!
What is Thor Laser Therapy?...
Thor Laser Therapy is a colloquial term for Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy).
It is a light therapy using lasers or LEDs to improve tissue repair (skin wounds, muscle, tendon, bone, nerves), reduce inflammation and reduce pain wherever the beam is applied.
PBM has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, neuropathic pain syndromes, back and neck pain etc.
Ther are over 700 randomised clinical trials have been published on PBM, half of which are on pain.
How does it work?
PBM works predominately on a protein in mitochondria (Cytochrome C Oxidase) to increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress. A cascade of mitochondrial and intracellular downstream effects lead to improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation.
