LED, or light emitting diodes, have been around for quite some time. Often used in the neuropathy clinic with laser, they are in fact part of what light therapy is now called – Photo-BioModulation or PBM. In fact, some of their original applications date back to the space program of the 1990s. Light energy is simply particles that can penetrate tissue at selected depths. LEDs have also been used for improved wound healing.
However, how exactly does this work? Light energy is simply clusters of photons or particles that can penetrate tissue at selected depths. What has been known for centuries is that light speeds healing. LEDs have also been used for improved wound healing. A long time ago, ill patients from infectious disease units and TB wards were rolled out into sunlight daily. Wounds were also exposed to sunlight to heal. 1
We also know that light therapy does have specific effects. The most important effect of that may have a bearing on peripheral neuropathy and related conditions, is the ability to stimulate metabolism or cellular efficiency.
You see, all the work we have done in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy since 2008 has been focused upon metabolic stimulation. In PBM, the addition of LED which is so often added to laser therapy, we are now able to expand our reach and help more patients than ever before. Our 2020 research study results incorporating these are extraordinarily encouraging.
Talk to your clinician about possibly adding LED therapy to your treatment. Consider this especially if you suffer from diabetic neuropathy or other poor wound-healing complications. Then Contact us to schedule an evaluation for LED and more.
