The presentation on LED photobiomodulation (PBM) started with a question: how can a deleterious phenomenon such as inflammation cause a beneficial effect on wound healing?
Indeed PBM starts with an inflammatory response but continues along the same pattern as natural wound healing, with its final step by the reparation of the tissues, which G Calderhead will prove to us.
We must understand the stages of healing and the cells involved in this process. There are three phases: inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling.
Inflammation is one of the main mechanisms in tissue alteration.
Chronic inflammation is one of the mechanisms of aging.
Much of our work as clinicians aims to counteract this situation and restore tissue homeostasis.
The use of LED PBM is a major step forward in this control.
According to G. Calderhead, the cells involved in the first stage of inflammation are the mast cells, macrophages, and leukocytes. The mast cell is the first activated...
