Red Light Pain Therapy
Red light pain therapy is a non-invasive, safe and drug-free solution to relieving pain. It has been scientifically proven to assist with conditions such as chronic discomfort, inflammation and muscle soreness.
This device delivers red and near-infrared (NIR) light to targeted areas of the body, increasing cellular energy and relieving pain, inflammation and stiffness.
Non-invasive and safe for most people, red light therapy is a non-invasive solution that’s safe to use. If you have sensitive skin, are pregnant, or diabetic, speak to your doctor before using a red light device.
Some devices are specifically designed to treat specific areas of the body and can treat multiple areas simultaneously, helping reduce the need for frequent visits to a medical professional.
They can be an economical alternative to oral pain medications. This is especially beneficial for those looking to avoid potential side effects like gastrointestinal problems or the potential risk of addiction that oral medications often carry.
This type of therapy is often recommended for individuals suffering from arthritis and other chronic pain conditions. Studies have demonstrated that it can reduce aches and pains, improve flexibility, and boost mobility in those suffering from these chronic conditions.
In certain cases, treatments can even be combined for greater effectiveness. For instance, if you suffer from knee pain due to osteoarthritis, prolotherapy (a regenerative injection treatment) could be combined with red light therapy to reduce inflammation and enhance joint flexibility and mobility.
Soft tissue injuries may respond well to treatment. Studies have demonstrated that low-level red light increases ATP production in damaged mitochondrial cells, helping restore normal function when dealing with musculoskeletal dysfunction or soft tissue injury and improving circulation as well.
Nitric oxide also stimulates nitric oxide production, helping the blood vessels relax and release this gas for improved blood flow. Nitric oxide plays an essential role in healthy arteries by combatting free radicals, preventing blood vessel clumping, and stimulating circulation.
Red light therapy devices come in a variety of styles and models to fit your needs. When selecting one, take into account both the size of the area to be treated as well as any physical limitations such as distance from the device.
For optimal results, utilize the device on a regular basis and let your body get used to the therapy. It is usually recommended to begin with a 10-minute session once per day and gradually increase it up in frequency as needed.
Many red light devices are portable, making them ideal for home or traveling use. With a range of sizes and price points available, be sure to compare options before settling on which device best suits your needs.
