While light therapy is an excellent tool to combat outward aesthetic concerns such as ageing and acne, the whole-body benefits that near-infrared light therapy provides go way beyond skin deep. Many don’t realise just how effective light therapy can be for pain management. Not only is pain physically debilitating, but it can also affect mental health on a daily basis.
Celluma LED light therapy is a modern approach to chronic pain management. Free from harmful chemicals and the risk of dependency, light therapy is a more natural method of healing your body from the inside out. Rather than simply masking pain, Celluma light therapy works differently to treat the underlying condition, enhancing tissue repair and performance, and allowing your body to perform at an optimal level of health and wellness.
With Celluma’s light therapy technology and unique body contouring device design, you can regain and maintain your body’s natural vitality without the need for prescription drugs and their dangerous side effects, leading to long-lasting, life-improving pain management you can rely on.
How Does Light Therapy for Pain Work?
In the same way that plants grow by getting their energy from the sun during photosynthesis, Infrared light therapy -- or “low-level light” therapy -- uses specific, proven wavelengths to stimulate a natural response in human tissue that can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, ease muscle pain, relieve joint stiffness, and enhance overall cell performance on a microscopic level.
Infrared light therapy works by boosting cellular energy to encourage and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities. When tissue is damaged, pain occurs.
Human tissue can be compromised in a variety of ways; a sprained ankle, a surgical procedure that didn’t heal properly, or even an overly intense gym session can all cause bodily discomfort and emotional distress.
Pain can be short-term or long-term, and because it presents itself differently in every person, it can be extremely difficult to treat. Celluma’s unique ability to bend, flex, and contour close to the skin’s surface allows cells to absorb even more light energy to achieve maximum restorative potential.
Celluma’s unique and superior device design offers pain-relieving therapeutic benefits equal to or better than more powerful and expensive devices, making all-natural pain management a very real possibility for all people who suffer from pain.
From chronic pain management to improved exercise tolerance, light therapy has been clinically proven to provide therapeutic benefits across an array of medical applications, penetrating deep beyond the skin’s surface to enhance health at the cellular level.
How Can Infrared Light Therapy Help with Pain Management?
Poor circulation and the lack of oxygen and other essential molecules (i.e., glucose, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)) in blood vessels can cause pain or a lack of sensation. Light energy stimulates the release of nitric oxide, causing blood vessels to increase in diameter (vasodilation) and allowing more blood flow, oxygen, and other important factors to be delivered. This increase in oxygen and nutrients, along with stimulation of the light energy emitted from Celluma LED devices increases ATP production, which activates pain relieving pathways. This decreases pain and inflammation and increases tissue regeneration in the localised area.
When it comes to effective treatment of pain conditions with LED light therapy, wavelength is key. Compared to blue light therapy, near-infrared wavelengths can penetrate deep into the muscle and joint tissue to alleviate pain, increase circulation and decrease inflammation. Infrared light therapy provides compromised cells with extra energy to accelerate the natural repair of compromised tissue cells, foster cell production, and restore homeostasis within the body.
Originally developed by NASA engineers for pain management and injury treatment on long-term space missions, light therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of pain and skin conditions.
Why is Celluma Light Therapy for Pain Management Different?
Celluma’s approach to pain management is inspired by light, proven by science, and cleared by the FDA. Celluma’s versatile, all-in-one Blue, Red, and Infrared light therapy systems are effective on different parts of the body and treats an array of pain-causing conditions.Unlike other LED light therapy devices on the market, Celluma has the unique ability to contour close to the skin’s surface for increased light absorption and optimal therapeutic efficacy.
