Pain and inflammation

Light therapy for inflammation and pain relief

Chronic pain effects about 60 million people worldwide and has a devastating impact on the quality of life for many of those who are suffering. Pain has been linked to anxiety, depression and medication dependency.   When ignored or mistreated, acute pain can manifest into chronic pain, bringing along a series of adverse long-term effects.  

How light therapy provides inflammation and pain relief?

Light therapy has been shown to reduce pain, inflammation and swelling, and promote healing for an array of musculoskeletal conditions, such as knee pain, osteoarthritis, pain post-total hip arthroplasty, fibromyalgia, temporomandibular disease, neck pain, and low back pain.

Beyond its application with healing and pain reduction, light therapy can also improve muscular performance and accelerate recovery.  Athletes who had muscle injuries were able to return to their sport more quickly after using light therapy.  

Light therapy is a non-invasive, safe, drug-free, and side-effect free method offering pain relief benefits that work for everyone from athletes to casual exercisers or people with chronic muscle or nerve pain. 

Our flex pads (FLEX002 (20x80cm), FLEX003 (30x80cm), and FLEX004 (100x60cm) and table device (TBL001) for inflammation and pain relief uses two wavelengths (colors), red light (660nm) and infrared light (850nm), which are very effective to improve circulation and reduce the pain caused by several health conditions.  

The light energy of both wavelengths (colors) penetrates through multiple layers of skin to reach deep into muscles and nerves.   The cells absorb energy from the light and become more active.  Blood flow increases to the area as well to further support cellular growth and regeneration, a combination of activities that works to reduce inflammation and repair wounds and injuries.
