HOW DOES PHOTOBIOMODULATION (PBM) WORK?
After the session, the body immediately begins to reheat itself, increase circulation, and decrease inflammation by clearing toxins, lactic acid and metabolic waste. The new supply of oxygenated blood stimulates cellular regeneration. Many notice an after-burn effect in which they metabolize additional calories. WBC treatments have been adopted by elite athletes and professional sports teams for muscle recovery and injury prevention
Every cell in our body has millions of energy generators called the mitochondrion. These mitochondria are responsible for providing most of the required ATP for cells – a chemical responsible for energy release within cells. Not only responsible for energy, ATP drive a multitude of cellular and physiological functions including those directly related to injury repair and pain relief.
When a cell is damaged through injury or trauma, or when cells get stressed (perhaps due to disease, injury or aging) the mitochondria produces nitric oxide (NO). Once, this happens the production of ATP is drastically reduced, or in some cases, stopped altogether. As a result, the rate of healing slows dramatically.
That’s where our PBM comes in. Using PBM delivered at the right frequency to affected cells, causes the mitochondria to spring into action almost immediately, producing increased amounts of ADP. The ADP then links with free oxygen singlets to produce ATP. Again, infra-red light increases the production of ATP in damaged or resting mitochondria.
At the correct wavelength, density and intensity, PBM will displace nitric oxide allowing oxygen back in, so ATP is restored and oxidative stress reduced. So, once your normal mitochondrial function is restored, cell metabolism is improved and healing will occur much quicker.
