Read below to learn about the benefits of red light therapy for pain relief.
What is Red Light Therapy?
Red Light Therapy, also known as Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), uses low level red light wavelengths to stimulate increased cellular energy production (ATP), prompting natural cellular healing. This therapy has gained popularity in recent years for its numerous health benefits, including pain management.
The Contour Light therapy machine is the leading, FDA-cleared system that combines LED red light at a therapeutic wavelength of 635nm and near-infrared light at 880nm, ideal for non-pharmaceutical temporary alleviation of arthritis and muscle/joint discomfort, and enhanced local blood circulation.
When he first developed this red light system, Douglas Dreier, the creator of Contour Light, understood the effectiveness of red light therapy, but also saw that most red light therapy systems would be sufficient to fully encompass all of the areas of the human body at once. Therefore, he designed a device with flexible pads that comfortably encompass nearly the whole body at once, and can directly treat the problem areas to deliver highly effective treatments.
How Red Light Therapy Relieves Pain
Inflammation is often the central cause of chronic pain. This is especially true in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, where excessive inflammation leads to swelling, pain and discomfort,
Red light therapy has been shown to rebalance the immune system from inflammatory to anti-inflammatory and enhance the body’s innate healing process. Studies show that a blend of red light and near-infrared light in the Contour Light system noticeably improves the blood and lymphatic circulatory systems, cleansing the body of inflammation-causing toxins and fat, and leaving it more balanced and comfortable.
What Patients Say About Contour Light
The Contour Light Device is the ideal system for your patients suffering from chronic pain who do not want the negative side effects of pharmaceuticals or an invasive treatment. The Contour Light system is pain free and ultra relaxing. It is so easy to administer. Simply wrap the flexible pads around the target areas needing treatment, turn on the controller, and leave your patient to luxuriate in the comforting warmth of the red light, to enjoy a nap or a rest while the red light therapy works with the body’s own healing process for remarkable outcomes. Here’s what patients had to say about Contour Light:
“I had a 20-minute Contour Light treatment that morning [that I first felt pain], and later that day I realized the pain had subsided nearly 50%. A few days later I had another 20-minute Contour Light treatment, and by the end of that day, the pain was gone, gone, gone. I am dancing a dance of joy!”
