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.
