Light therapy is a scientifically proven and FDA approved method to alleviate chronic pain and improve recovery.
Over 400 scientific studies show increased strength in damaged tissue—whether from skin conditions, muscle damage from hard workouts, and injuries.
Operating at the cellular level, light therapy and has been shown to treat the underlying issues and alleviate chronic pain including back, neck, shoulder, knee, nerve (neuropathic), and arthritis pain.
PBM can be a safe alternative to opioids, has no documented side effects, and can have lasting pain-relief
Red light therapy refers to the use of low wavelength red, infrared or near infrared light to trigger healing and rejuvenation in the body. While these therapies are relatively new, they have shown promising outcomes and no documented side effects when administered correctly.
First pursued for its uses to treat skin conditions like psoriasis and skin cancer, RLT has grown in visibility and application as its benefits are explored further. RLT has been used for over a decade in spaces such as dermatologist offices, but has recently gained more attention. Now, on top of its help in healing skin-related issues, RLT is also being leveraged for other anti-inflammatory and recovery-boosting effects.
When you attend an appointment for red light therapy, you will either lie under a booth or utilize a handheld laser. In either case, red light therapy works just the way you might guess: you will expose your skin to a red light for a set period of time. While the process may resemble lying in a tanning bed, RLT does not involve any harmful UV rays. Users may feel warmth or a slight stinging sensation, but red light therapy should not be painful.
Because red light penetrates deep inside the layers of the skin, it stimulates the mitochondria of the cells. Since the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, this stimulation creates more energy, allowing cells to repair themselves, create new growth, and work more efficiently. By boosting blood flow and cell energy, RLT triggers healing and anti-inflammatory processes within the body.
Research into the benefits of red light therapy continues to unveil exciting new opportunities. While some benefits are still in early research stages, there are already many uses for cutting-edge red light therapy.
One of the most exciting benefits of red light therapy is its pain relieving potential. Light therapy targets chronic pain at the root, allowing many users to stop relying on painkillers. The opportunity to stop or reduce the use of opioids and over the counter pain medications means fewer undesirable side effects and lasting relief. RLT has been used to treat pain resulting from conditions including:
