Red Light Therapy for Pain Relief
Red light therapy for pain relief is a gentle, non-invasive, drug-free, and chemical-free alternative that has been shown to reduce and in some cases even eliminate aches and pains. At first it sounds ridiculous. How can light help with my chronic back pain? Well, it’s quite simple. The infrared light (invisible light) penetrates deeper in our body and repairs or regenerates cell components. The infrared light also activates the production of endorphins and blocks pain-transmitting chemicals. The home devices for this purpose typically use Infrared light (deep penetrating light) – at 880nm, which penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm, making it an effective pain relief for:
1. Herniated and bulging discs
2. Muscle related back pain
5. Pulled and strained muscles, Muscle spasms
7. Nerve injuries
8. Sports injuries: bone fractures and chips, sprains, tennis elbow etc.
9. Neck pain and stiffness
