Most people turn to pain relieving medications to help them with acute pain, which can be caused due to sports injuries, headaches, muscle tension, mastitis, toothache to name a few. Long term use of pain relief and anti-inflammatory medications can come with a number of side-effects, which leads people to try alternative and natural options.
Red Light Therapy, also known as photobiomodulation (PBM), provides a safe, chemical-free, natural option for acute pain. Physiotherapists and sports medicine specialists have been treating a wide variety of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and pain with red light therapy for a number of years.
Having a long and well-established history as a treatment for many different types of pain, research has demonstrated that red light therapy:
No side effects, natural, safe pain relief is now available with the CelLED Devices.
Pain lasting 12 weeks or more is typically categorised as chronic pain and currently 1 in 5 Australians (including adolescents and children) suffer from chronic pain on a daily basis. This number is 1 in 3 people over the age of 65.
Recent statics have shown that more than 50% of people suffering from chronic pain are not receiving appropriate treatment.
Red light therapy, offers a safe, non-invasive, natural and in many cases, effective treatment that is incredibly cost-effective.
A combination of red and near infrared (NIR) light, used in all CelLED Devices, is ideal to penetrate into the body’s tissues, muscles, bones and even organs to accelerate the body’s cells into healing mode.
Red Light Therapy is a powerful tool that doesn’t just temporarily alleviate symptoms (like an anti-inflammatory or painkiller drug), but it stimulates your body naturally in making lasting adaptations at the cellular level. This leads to more resilience against stressors and a greater capacity to produce energy.
When it comes to chronic pain, red light therapy has been shown to be remarkably effective for:
Whether you’re an active baby-boomer playing golf, bowls, croquet, tennis or spending your golden years travelling and exploring the world, health and mobility are sadly things that decline with age, whilst aches and pains creep in.
Red light therapy devices that are portable and easy to use, have been shining the light on age related conditions with some incredible results, especially alleviating chronic pain.
