How Infrared Light Therapy Works
Infrared Light therapy is the treatment of a disorder by exposure to specific wavelengths of light using light-emitting diodes(LEDs). While visible light wavelengths (Red, Blue, etc) penetrate tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm, which is very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface, Infrared (invisible to human eye) light penetrates to a depth of about 30-40mm which makes it more effective for bones, joints, deep muscle, etc.
Studies have proven that Infrared Light brings wound healing and pain relief for:
- Tennis elbow
- Skin care
- Carpal Tunnel
It is often administered to prevent scar tissue formation, inflammation, and degenerative osteoarthritis.
Infrared Light Therapy has been FDA Cleared for aching joints, muscle pains, to increase blood circulation, and relax muscles.
The technology is now becoming accepted and widely used in human medicine as well because it is a simple, effective, non-pharmacological medical alternative that produces results and is very cost effective. Light therapy stimulates the natural healing power in the cells of the body because when you have injury or sickness, the normal cell activity gets highly disrupted and needs a “push” to function normally again.
Once delivered, the light energy promotes the process of photobiostimulation, whereby a chain of chemical reactions are set in motion. This produces an increase in the cellular metabolism rate which expedites the stimulation of the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems and cell repair, resulting in the reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time.
