What Is Infrared Light Therapy?

Infrared light therapy is a treatment approach that uses infrared light-emitting devices to expose the body to wavelengths of light on the infrared spectrum. Infrared light can penetrate deep into soft tissue and bone without damaging overlying structures like the skin.

Exposure to infrared light triggers beneficial photobiological effects that accelerate healing, reduce inflammation and pain, improve circulation and blood flow, and activate tissue regeneration and wound repair.

Infrared therapy is used to successfully treat various muscular/skeletal, circulatory, neurological, skin, autoimmune, and inflammatory conditions. Applications range from wound healing to arthritis relief.

How Infrared Light Therapy in Estero Works

Infrared light therapy in Estero typically utilizes light with wavelengths ranging from about 700 nanometers to 1 millimeter, focusing especially on the near-infrared range which has the deepest tissue penetration ability.

Special infrared-emitting devices are used, including laser and LED devices, infrared heating lamps, and panels containing LEDs that emit select infrared wavelengths.

Treatment sessions tend to last 15-30 minutes, and we may recommend multiple sessions per week. The light exposure is non-invasive and generally considered very safe, with few side effects. You will wear protective eyewear during this treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Infrared Light Therapy?

Are you wondering if infrared light therapy in Estero is the right choice for you? Here are some of the main benefits associated with infrared light therapy:

  • Pain relief – Infrared light penetrates deep into tissues and is thought to have anti-inflammatory effects that help reduce pain and swelling from injuries, joint pain, or chronic pain conditions. The light may block pain signals and increase endorphins.
  • Wound healing – By reducing inflammation, increasing blood flow, and stimulating tissue repair, infrared light can accelerate the healing process for wounds, burns, diabetic ulcers, and skin damage.
  • Circulation – Infrared exposure dilates blood vessels and boosts microcirculation. This can aid many conditions impacted by poor circulation like peripheral artery disease, cold extremities, or tissue damage.
  • Muscle recovery – The anti-inflammatory and circulatory effects provided by infrared therapy may help relieve muscle soreness, reduce spasms/cramps, and improve post-workout recovery or injury healing time.
  • Skin health – Infrared light boosts collagen production, increases cell metabolism, and regenerates skin. This helps reduce visible signs of skin aging and improves skin appearance/texture.
  • Nerve health – Improved blood flow provided by infrared therapy helps reduce nerve inflammation and damage from diabetes, chemotherapy, and other conditions. This may aid neuropathic pain.
  • Immunity – Exposure to infrared light activates the circulatory, lymphatic, and immune-stimulating effects that can help boost overall immune response and fight inflammation/infections.

Clinical studies have proven infrared light remarkably effective at treating many conditions. Sessions take only 15-20 minutes and often yield cumulative benefits over several weeks. Call us to learn more about how infrared light therapy in Estero can help you.

Infrared Light Therapy as Part of a Comprehensive Rehabilitation Plan in Estero

At Naples Community Injury Center, we typically prescribe infrared light therapy as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation plan that includes other therapies. During your first visit to our office, we will assess your injuries and develop a customized treatment plan that our chiropractors and physiotherapists tailor to your unique needs based on your diagnosis.

Some of the other therapies we may prescribe to be used in conjunction with infrared light therapy include:

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments work hand-in-hand with infrared light therapy to treat pain as a powerful, non-invasive integrative approach. Spinal manipulation from chiropractic adjustments can improve your range of motion and reduce inflammation in joints and tissues that commonly contribute to painful conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia.

The targeted joint and spinal mobilization encourages fluid exchange that removes toxic irritants from the injury site while allowing better nutrient delivery for faster healing. By providing pain alleviation, chiropractic adjustments complement the tissue regeneration and anti-inflammatory cellular activation triggered by concurrent infrared light therapy sessions.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy utilizes high-frequency sound waves to generate gentle heat and vibration deep within tissues—increasing circulation, reducing inflammation and muscle spasms, and boosting tissue repair. The mechanical pressure from ultrasound also allows greater penetration of topical treatments.

When combined with light-activated cellular effects from simultaneous infrared therapy using multi-modal devices, this sound wave stimulation allows infrared light to reach deeper levels for greater anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits. The two modalities complement one another to meet at the same goal—alleviating pain associated with chronic injuries.

Our focus is on your treatment, rehabilitation, and the prevention of further injuries in the future. This may include recommending exercises you can do at home or lifestyle changes.
