Infrared light therapy, also referred as phototherapy, is a method to deal with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) by being exposed to a daylight or an artificial light. It is also a way to reduce or relieve different types of pain. Pain is the body’s way of signaling harm or damage to the brain. Acute pain means that something new or serious has happened, whereas chronic pain is more associated with an old injury, or biochemical changes in the nervous system.

How does infrared light therapy work?

Some patients may have suffered from pain, such as neck pain, back pain, joint pain etc. for many years but still cannot get rid of it. Here, at Imagine Laserworks, the infrared light therapy with laser acupuncture is to help. It is thought to affect brain chemicals linked to mood, pain and muscle which leads to a reduction or discontinuation of drug therapy and the postponement or avoidance of surgery. Pads are embedded with Infrared SLD diodes at 875nm and 630nm wavelengths, emitting light energy in the visible and infrared spectrum for the delivery of light therapy and mild topical heating. Therefore, the infrared light therapy not only helps to temporarily increase local circulation, relieve stiffness, promote relaxation of muscle tissue, but also provides temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain associated with a wide variety of conditions including arthritis, chronic pain, connective tissue dysfunction and neuropathy. Those damaged tissue being stimulated when the infrared light ray pours into the tissues and hits a bold vessel wall. The light that penetrates into the tissue can be absorbed and energy from these absorption events will be dissipated as heat generating a soothing warmth in the tissue.
