Boulder Multiple Sclerosis Pain Treatment

Living with the debilitating pain and fatigue brought on by MS? Light therapy can help.

Living with the pain and fatigue brought on by MS can be debilitating. At the same time, sifting through treatment options can quickly cause frustration and anxiety.

While searching for effective Boulder MS pain management, many traditional therapies often rely on prescription medications. While beneficial, they may come with undesirable side effects ranging from fatigue to more severe health concerns like addiction.

In contrast, red light therapy emerges as an alternative pain management therapy available at Light Lounge, providing a beacon of hope for MS patients. Discover how integrating red light therapy into your MS treatment plan can offer relief from the debilitating symptoms associated with Multiple Sclerosis.

Red Light Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Almost 1 million people in the United States are living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a neurodegenerative disease.1

MS is a condition in which a person’s immune system turns against the central nervous system. This causes a breakdown of the protein and fat structure called the myelin sheath, which protects the nerves around the brain and spinal cord. The breakdown can lead to chronic inflammation and miscommunication between the brain and the rest of the body.

The symptoms of MS are notably unpredictable and vary widely from one individual to another, making MS a particularly complex condition to manage. The variability means that what works for one person in terms of symptom relief might not work for another.

Finding the right treatment may require a customized plan to alleviate your symptoms.

  • Fatigue: Fatigue in MS can be so severe that it significantly interferes with daily activities, making even simple tasks feel impossible.
  • Impaired vision: This often manifests as blurred vision, double vision, or loss of vision, usually in one eye at a time, due to damage to the optic nerve.
  • Stiffness or weakness in muscles: Muscle stiffness (spasticity) and weakness can affect any part of the body, leading to difficulties with movement and coordination.
  • Mobility issues: Mobility problems may range from needing a walking aid to being wheelchair-bound, as balance and muscle coordination are impacted.
  • Numbness, tingling or pain: These sensory symptoms can occur anywhere in the body and range from mild to severe, often described as a pins-and-needles sensation or a sharp, stabbing pain.

These symptoms can impact any area of the body and are often difficult to predict, making them even more frustrating. Over time, the effects of MS can significantly worsen a person’s quality of life.

Treatment for MS

Most medications for multiple sclerosis are designed to either prevent the immune system’s attack – specifically by T-cells – on the nervous system’s myelin sheath or to hasten the nervous system’s recovery after such attacks. The attack process involves T-cells being attracted to the myelin sheath by proteins known as cytokines.

These common treatments aim to reduce the frequency and severity of flare-ups, manage symptoms, and slow the progression of the disease.

Corticosteroids for MS treatment are powerful anti-inflammatory drugs used to reduce nerve inflammation and manage acute flare-ups, aiming to decrease the severity and duration of attacks.


  • Can shorten the duration of relapses
  • Helps manage severe symptoms rapidly
  • Quickly reduces inflammation during MS exacerbations


  • Does not slow the progression of MS over time
  • May cause mood swings, increased risk of infection, and weight gain
  • Long-term use can lead to serious side effects including osteoporosis, hypertension, and diabetes2


Plasma exchange (plasmapheresis) for MS treatment involves removing and replacing the plasma in a patient's blood, aimed at eliminating harmful immune system components that contribute to MS flare-ups.


  • May improve symptoms of severe MS relapses more quickly
  • Can be effective for those who don’t respond to corticosteroids
  • Targets the immune system’s components directly involved in the MS attack


  • Requires access to specialized medical facilities
  • Not effective as a long-term treatment strategy for MS
  • Can lead to temporary side effects like low blood pressure and light-headedness

Benefits of Red Light Therapy for Managing MS Symptoms

Recently, an increasing number of studies have seen promising results of red light therapy for MS treatment. For example, a 2016 study found that red light therapy reduced inflammatory cells in the central nervous system and prevented damage to the myelin.3

Red light therapy is recognized for its minimal side effects, presenting a promising option for treating MS. Unlike conventional treatments, red light therapy offers a gentle, non-invasive approach that makes it a low-risk option for individuals who are concerned with the unwanted effects of traditional methods.

Red light therapy may help alleviate MS symptoms in the following ways:

  • Reducing inflammation: Red light therapy has been shown to inhibit inflammatory cytokines and release anti-inflammatory mediators. Since MS involves chronic inflammation in the central nervous system, red light therapy’s anti-inflammatory properties can help alleviate MS pain.
  • Pain relief: MS often causes neuropathic pain because of the damage to nerves. Red light therapy can help modulate nerve function and target underlying neuropathic mechanisms.
  • Better cellular health: Red light therapy stimulates the mitochondria and boosts production of ATP, which can help the cells heal more quickly and perform their functions more effectively.

Studies suggest that red light therapy can help reduce muscle stiffness and regenerate the body’s cells and tissues. These effects directly combat the negative symptoms of MS, providing needed relief for individuals living with this condition.

"The Light Lounge has been my savior. I had a bad ski accident about two years ago and I wasn't healing well. By the 5th session the pain was gone."

Lisa Marie

"I was referred to Light Lounge by my physical therapist, I would absolutely recommend this to family and friends."


"I have been coming to Light Lounge almost every day for two years. The joint pain I used to get in my shoulders is gone."


"I have had issues with my blood pressure for a little over two years. It comes down for about 3 days after I have been to Light Lounge."


"In the last year and a half I have had two knee replacement surgeries on the same knee. I had been frustrated with my pain and recovery, that's when I found Light Lounge. I no longer have to strongly rely on my opioid medication."


When light that is in the red, near infrared, and infrared spectra is applied to the body, inflammation and pain are decreased, and healing is accelerated. Light therapy does this by reducing excessive oxidative stress at the cellular level with no documented nor reported negative side effects.

From folks who are suffering from chronic pain (light therapy can alleviate pain without drugs) to people who want to get more out of their training (light therapy can help increase performance and decrease recovery time).

Clinical trials and 4000 laboratory studies demonstrate that light therapy (also called photobiomodulation) has no negative side effects. It has been proven to heal soft tissue injuries, help with TBI, relieve pain without using harmful drugs and painkillers. For more evidence based information please see our BLOG.
