Known also as LED, low-level laser therapy, and cool laser therapy, near infrared light therapy can provide immediate relief from pain in the following conditions:
- Lower backache
- Herniated disc
Light therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment that delivers non-thermal photons to the targeted area. It stimulates cellular function, increasing energy at the cellular level and increasing blood flow to the injured tissues. In turn, it promotes faster healing. Light therapy has been known to work in a few minutes or a few sessions.
Light therapy is also know to improve the following conditions in clinical practice:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sports injuries such as tendonitis, bursitis, and muscle pulls
- Burns, cuts, contusions
- Postoperative pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive stress injuries
Feel free to ask your massage therapist any questions you have about your light therapy treatment.
