Red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, is a type of therapy that involves the use of low-level red and near-infrared light to promote healing and relieve pain and inflammation. It works by penetrating the skin and increasing the production of cellular energy, known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The increased cellular energy can help to improve the function of cells and tissues, leading to a variety of health benefits.
Red light therapy is typically delivered through LED panels or lamps, and is applied directly to the skin for a specific period of time. Some of the conditions that red light therapy has been shown to be effective in treating include arthritis, joint pain, skin conditions such as acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and even depression and anxiety. Red light therapy is generally considered safe and non-invasive, and is often administered by trained professionals.
The laser affects the metabolism at the cellular level. It helps injured cells/ tissue heal quicker by enabling oxidative phosphorylation to be restored at the mitochondria level. The laser therapy will help reduce pain by decreasing inflammation and to reduce the pain level.
If you are considering red light therapy, it is always a good idea to speak with a doctor or other medical professional first to determine if it is a good option for you.
