Red light therapy or near infrared light therapy has been proven successful in hundreds of studies for a variety of conditions including but not limited to orthopedic conditions, skin problems, traumatic brain injury and other systemic or autoimmune diseases. This therapy utilizes the science of photobiomodulation which is a biohackers fantasy! Near infrared wavelengths range between 700 and 1200 nm and can deliver energy to the cells to stimulate healing thereby relieving pain.
The photoreceptors of the cells inside our body absorb the near infrared energy which then stimulates a cascade of metabolic events. A process of angiogenesis, or increased blood flow, occurs which causes more stem cells to home to the area. In addition, the mitochondria are stimulated to produce more energy. As part of the regeneration process, inflammation is reduced and pain lessens, and new, healthy tissue forms. Infrared light has been shown to be very safe with no known negative side effects reported. Enhance your cellular healing and try red light therapy today!
