Some of the most common complaints that bring patients to our team include pain and inflammation from muscular injuries. One of the treatments we may prescribe to treat these symptoms is infrared light therapy rehabilitation. This pain-free, light-based method penetrates deep within the muscles to treat pain and reduce inflammation in various body parts.

What Is Naples Infrared Light Therapy and How Does It Work?
During infrared light therapy, our physiotherapists use special wands that deliver strong infrared light to the injury site. By applying certain wavelengths in the affected area for specified times, the wand allows us to promote cell repair, reduce inflammation, and minimize or eliminate pain.
Infrared light penetrates the muscles and underlying structures better than most wavelengths. Unlike some types of light therapy, infrared light does not contain harmful rays that could cause damage to your skin.
Infrared therapy can reduce inflammation by penetrating through the skin to the muscles, improving circulation. With improved circulation, the area receives more oxygen and nutrients. This could also reduce pain and promote the healing of muscular injuries. Muscle tissue could recover faster from injuries and stress with the introduction of infrared light treatment.
We Use Naples Infrared Light Therapy as Part of a Comprehensive Rehabilitation Plan
At Naples Community Injury Center, we generally do not prescribe infrared light therapy as a standalone treatment. Instead, we use it in combination with other options to ensure our patients’ injuries and needs are addressed. Every patient receives a treatment plan that our doctors specifically tailor to suit their diagnosis and goals.
Depending on the complaint that brought a patient to our office, we prescribe several chiropractic care and/or physiotherapy techniques that help to address the underlying cause of their pain and inflammation. The methods we prescribe focus on treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of future injuries.
Once we address the underlying cause of your condition and provide relief through infrared therapy, massage, ultrasound therapy, medications, and other actions, we may begin rehabilitation. This involves rebuilding muscle mass, training for overall health and wellness, and lifestyle changes to prevent future injuries when necessary.
