Back pain can affect individuals of all ages and can be attributed to a wide range of causes from muscle and ligament strains to spine and vertebrae fractures. Back pain is typically categorized into three primary areas: neck, middle and/or lower back. If the pain persists for more than three months the condition is considered chronic and can often become debilitating without proper therapy.
Beyond physiotherapy, a complementary treatment option exist to relieve back pain so that you can return to your normal daily life without pain. Red light therapy in Singapore is becoming more widely accepted as a treatment option to manage pain from osteoarthritis, tendinitis, and other musculoskeletal disorders of the back.
LightStim has been clinically proven to be safe and effective for pain with no negative side effects. LED light therapy was conceived by NASA for wound healing in space. LightStim MultiWave® advances NASA’s research into a patented technology used by medical and healthcare professionals for more than 20 years. The therapeutic 18,240 red and infrared LEDs emit extremely beneficial light energy to activate the body’s natural healing response at the cellular level for lasting relief from pain.
This red light laser therapy emits multiple wavelengths at different intensities and doses. The administration of a light therapy allows for deeper penetration beyond the skin to reach damaged cells. The use of infrared and red light for pain stimulates healing at the cell and tissular levels in the affected area to reduce inflammation.
Red light therapy energizes cells that drives a hosts of physiological processes including repair, replication and healing of injured areas. The benefits of healing infrared light therapy are manifold:
- Boosts cellular energy
- Amplifies the inflammatory healing response
- Activates stem cells
- Accelerates collagen production
- Enhances biostimulation
Through the process of activating the body’s natural physiological responses, the therapy allows the body to heal itself and accelerate recovery, thereby reducing pain.
Physical Benefits of A Red and Infrared Light Therapy Source
Therapy of this nature is effective by accessing the mitochondria enzymes of the body with the multiple wavelength turning this light energy into ATP for cellular use.
Mitochondria enzymes of the damaged area cannot operate at an effective level which creates inflammation and pain. Red light assists with the creation of ATP to balance the normal functions found in a healthy individual while the musculoskeletal dysfunction or soft tissue injury heals.
The creation of ATP through low-level light therapy also improves circulation by dilating the blood vessels. ATP interacts with the nitric oxide used by the body’s system to communicate between cells in the circulation process. The flow of blood in the body is necessary to promote any form of healing.
The body uses sunlight sources in a similar manner producing Vitamin D through our skin when exposed to the outdoors for particular lengths of time. Exposing our eyes to the sunshine via the outdoors gives these rays access to our photosensitive retina which stimulates the pituitary glands in our brains assisting with the maintenance of an essential vital organ of the body.
LightStim uses light energy in a similar absorption method as with plants and sunlight, but without the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays – only the healthy spectrum of light is absorbed. Applying low-level light therapy to damaged tissue areas at the cellular level offers similar assistance to the maintenance of physical functions.
LightStim for back pain emits healthy infrared and red light that reduces pain and stimulates local blood flow. This increased biostimulation accelerates your body’s recovery process and relieves minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness, minor arthritic pain, and relaxes muscles. You can use it for post-workout soreness (DOMS), sports or athletic injuries, backaches, arthritis and stiffness.
Beyond Back Pain … The Extended Benefits
As an athlete, LightStim red light therapy quickens recovery so that you can recover faster while pushing your training to the next level. It’s a popular recovery tool used by elite athletes in the USA and Europe. For those who have general aches and pains, photobiomodulation red light therapy assists with decreasing pain. For people with autoimmune diseases and skin pigmentation disorders, the treatment stimulates circulation and the elasticity of the skin.
