HOW DOES PBM WORK?
Every middle school child who studies biology will know what mitochondria are. They are the parts inside every one of our 37 trillion cells that make energy (ATP).
But when we are injured , injured stressed or just old, those mitochondria produce less ATP and more free radicals (ROS).
These ROS lead to inflammation (inflammatory cytokines), cell death and the triggering of genetic weaknesses that lead to degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis, dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, cancer etc.
When we apply light at the right wavelength, intensity and time parameters, inflammatory cytokines are reduced, ATP is increased and the body starts to heal more quickly.
