Following injury and damage to the body a number of biochemical mediators which cause pain including prostaglandins, cytokines, histamines and a substance known as neurotrophin nerve growth factor (NGF) are released. NGF is now known to play a key role in causing chronic pain. Excess NGF can change the way nerves signal pain and increase the quantity and quality of the signal. Excess NGF can lead to peripheral and central sensitization, amplifying pain signaling and heightening the perception of pain by the patient.
Photobiomodulation therapy successfully reduces and/or turns off these biochemical mediators leaving patients with significantly reduced and adequately controlled pain. Sollay Laser Center of Excellence is a leader in the application of medical therapeutic laser light to the healing and controlling of chronic pain.
