Red Light Therapy

How Does Red Light Therapy Work?

Red light therapy uses low-power red light to activate the cell’s energy
generators (mitochondria). Most of the energy made by the mitochondria is
housed in a molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which helps your
body store and use energy.
Under the influence of infrared radiation, heat is generated in tissues, physical
and chemical reactions are accelerated, tissue regeneration processes are
stimulated, cell growth is enhanced, biologically active substances are
produced, etc. Therefore, for more than half a century, infrared light therapy
has been evolving as one of the best treatments for many diseases.
People who support red light therapy claim that the treatment will help repair
tissue as well as relieve pain and inflammation.


Red or near-infrared light encourages cells to make antioxidants faster and
lower inflammatory markers. Soft laser therapy can increase circulation to
help relieve inflammatory conditions without drugs or surgery, including: 


* Osteoarthritis. Several studies have found that red light therapy can
reduce pain and disability in people with knee osteoarthritis. The
benefits extended up to 12 weeks after the end of treatment.

* Tendinitis. Pre-exercise red light therapy might improve sports
performance and speed recovery from muscle strain. The treatment may
have the potential to combat the oxidative stress caused by exercise.

*Psoriasis. Cold laser therapy is a common treatment for mild to
moderate psoriasis, an autoimmune inflammatory skin condition.
However, different light sources are needed for each type of psoriasis.
It’s important to use the right light source for the treatment to be
effective and to avoid skin burning or other side effects.

* Carpal tunnel syndrome. In one study, low-level laser therapy helped
reduce carpal tunnel syndrome pain in the hands and enhanced electrical
activity in the median nerve.
