What is red light therapy?

Red light therapy is an effective, non-invasive, non-surgical, non-drug treatment for a range of conditions, including arthritis, back pain, and fibromyalgia. Studies have established that red light therapy helps to reduce pain and inflammation, improves range of motion, and can enhance overall quality of life. At Arch Medical Group, our physicians have seen remarkable changes in patients treated with red light therapy.

How does red light therapy work?

Red light therapy works by using low-level red light wavelengths, which penetrate skin, entering the tissues, triggering cellular activity. This process is known as photobiomodulation. The red light wavelengths are absorbed by the mitochondria (which generate energy) to promote healing. When the light energy enters the tissues, it stimulates the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy source that cells need to function properly, promoting natural healing and cell regeneration. Cell regeneration reduces inflammation and pain by increasing blood flow and oxygenation to the affected area, reducing swelling, and promoting healing in conditions such as arthritis, sports injuries, and chronic pain.

What can red light therapy treat?

Red light therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), is a non-invasive treatment that uses red light wavelengths to stimulate cellular activity and promote healing. It has been shown to be effective in treating many physical conditions, both chronic and acute, including:

  • Pain management: Red light therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, sprains, strains, and chronic back pain.
  • Wound healing: Red light therapy can help speed up the healing process of wounds, including cuts, burns, injuries, and surgical incisions.
  • Mood disorders: Red light therapy has been shown to improve symptoms of depression and anxiety.
  • Sports injuries: Red light therapy can help reduce inflammation and promote healing in sports injuries such as sprains, strains, tendinitis, arthritis, and joint pain.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: Red light therapy has been shown to significantly reduce the inflammation that can be the underlying cause of carpal tunnel syndrome.
