Light therapy is Safe FDA approved process of using very short wavelengths of light (600-1000 nm) to penetrate human tissue causing an effect of healing. Photons, especially those found in the red or near infrared spectrum, have healing properties at the cellular level. The photons are absorbed by the cell. The cell then uses these photons to make additional ATP, adenosine triphosphate, which is energy used by your body’s cells. This can accelerate the bodies natural healing processes.

Light Therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of ailments. Including but not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Muscle Strains
  • Ulcers
  • Pain Reduction
  • Fractures
  • TMJ, (temporomandibular joint) Dysfunctions

Benefits of Red Light Therapy

  • Easy to apply
  • Extremely safe
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-invasive
  • No side effects or pain
  • Cost effective for both the practitioner and patient
  • Highly effective in treating ailments (more than 90% efficacy)
  • Superior alternative to analgesics, NSAID’s and other medications
  • Works synergistically with other modalities like massage, chiro, acupuncture, and PT
  • Increased Cell Growth: Laser photons accelerate cellular reproduction and growth
  • Increased Metabolic Activity: Photons initiate higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells, and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP)
  • Faster Wound Healing: Cold laser photons stimulate fibroblast development and accelerate collagen synthesis in damaged tissue
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action: Laser photons reduce swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints resulting in enhanced joint mobility
  • Increased Vascular Activity: Laser photons induce temporary vasodilation that increases blood flow to effected areas
  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation:Laser photons reduce the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns, or post surgery
  • Stimulated Nerve Function: Laser photon exposure speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life
  • Pain Reduction: Almost all systems have a mode of operation specifically designed to reduce pain
