To date, over 500 clinical trials and 4000 laboratory studies have sought to examine the medical benefits and better understand the biochemical mechanisms underlying photobiomodulation (PBM) — previously known as low-level light therapy. The results have often been mixed. Sometimes the light works in amazing ways, sometimes it doesn’t, so skepticism in the field has prevailed. In recent years,...Read full article
