Red light therapy is beneficial for a wide variety of conditions and ailments. It is also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) because it uses low-energy light emitting diodes (LEDs) or lasers. You might be thinking that lasers are only used to make surgical cuts, and that is true of the high-power lasers, but red light therapy is a different wavelength that is ideal as an alternative therapy for pain relief and to promote healthy cell functions. By improving the functioning of the entire cell, it can better absorb nutrients and use them to create energy, which leads to rejuvenation and improved healing.
Red light therapy has been found to be useful for reducing joint stiffness, improving blood flow, relieving muscle spasms, reducing inflammation, improving elasticity of collagen fibers, and reducing pain. You might consider red light therapy as a treatment for acne, assisting with weight loss, diminishing wrinkles, and helping with conditions such as a frozen shoulder, wounds, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Because red light therapy does not damage the skin and requires no downtime, it is ideal for those who are hoping to avoid a surgical procedure or other invasive treatment option. It does not have much in the way of side effects, and these are kept to a minimum when administered by a trained professional. The number of red light therapy treatments you need will depend on the condition being treated, how well you respond to the therapy, the severity of your condition, and other factors. It is important to note that it is possible to overdo red light therapy, which results in reduced effectiveness, so always have it done by an experienced provider.
