Pain Management & Other Indications for PBM Therapy

Acute and chronic pain can in many cases be improved or eliminated through spot treatment with our Thor LX2.  Common conditions that often respond well to light therapy alone, without medication include plantar fasciitis, sciatica, arthritis and carpal tunnel.  A more complete list of conditions that respond well is below. 

 

The THOR LX2 Pain Pro is a device that emits red and near-infrared (NIR) light, built to specifications supported through over 550 PBM randomized clinical trials and more than 4000 laboratory studies.

PBM clinical trials with similar wavelengths and power densities have demonstrated:

  • Analgesia can be achieved with high power density lasers targeting the nerves at the spine, nerve roots, nerve plexuses, and along the course of the nerve.  

  • Trigger Points can be deactivated with high power density lasers.

This therapy can be utilized in conjunction with NovoTHOR Whole Body Light Pod or as a stand alone therapy.  Many individuals will get their initial pain level reduced by one or several LX2 Pain Pro spot therapy session​s and then maintained at their own pace with NovoTHOR.

Thor Photomedicine provides an extensive and highly detailed treatment library for numerous conditions.  If you suffer with one of these conditions we have a protocol for spot treatment that might offer you relief:

Example of a typical protocol from Thor:

"I fell off a ladder and broke my back. I received treatment on and around my Burst L-5 and within a day I have come off my pain medication, I am able to be up longer, and I am able to sit upright more comfortably."

-Eddie D., Kerrville, TX

"Each of those sessions made a notable impact on my pain level, but it was after the third session that I felt the most relief. My nerve pain was nearly completely gone!"

-Candice R., New Braunfels, TX

"After six to eight treatments over several weeks, the pain ceased entirely! I was able to stop taking NSAIDs on a daily basis just to get through the day."

-Sherri B., Kerrville, TX
