Red LED photobiomodulation reduces pain hypersensitivity and improves sensorimotor function following mild T10 hemicontusion spinal cord injury

Hu, Di; Zhu, Shuyu; Potas, Jason R

Description

BACKGROUND The development of hypersensitivity following spinal cord injury can result in incurable persistent neuropathic pain. Our objective was to examine the effect of red light therapy on the development of hypersensitivity and sensorimotor function, as well as on microglia/macrophage subpopulations following spinal cord injury. METHODS Wistar rats were treated (or sham treated) daily for 30 min with an LED...[Show more]
