Paper Abstract

A novel treatment modality for photobiomodulation (PBM) is introduced called High Intensity Physio Light (HIPL) Therapy with a light source at 640 nm wavelength, 20 nm bandwidth, and up to 20 W in large 10 cm flat beam. This report exemplifies the efficacy performance of this method with three pre-clinical cases: (i) ankle: sport injury, (ii) foot: bone fractures, and (iii) shoulder: musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). In all cases, the patients systematically experienced a significant pain reduction (by 2 / 10 - 4 / 10) on a visual pain scale. In case (ii) and (iii), a steady improvement and complete recovery of the patient was respectfully obtained. This report describes the experimental treatment condition for each case, and introduces an intensity-dependant propagation model to explain our observation.
