Laser and LED light therapy–or photobiomodulation (PBM)–is a revolutionary new technique for treating a host of neurological and pain associated disorders, including TBI and stroke. A study published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine demonstrated a therapeutic dose of energy-stimulating photons can reach brain diseased brain tissue using rather atypical patients–human cadavers. In light of new evidence, will doctors change how they treat neurological diseases?
