Regenerative photonic therapy is a non-invasive treatment that makes use of light sources to speed up the regeneration and healing processes of cells and tissues. It is used to treat both acute and chronic pain.
How It Works
When the body’s cells are hit with light, nitric oxide is released. This naturally-occurring chemical in the body promotes blood flow and increases lymphatic drainage.
The powerful wave of light applied through this therapy penetrates the skin and reaches through the surrounding tissue and nerves underneath. The light stimulates the cells to function better and promotes accelerated wound healing. With the help of the therapeutic light, regeneration occurs at a much faster rate than normal.
With this therapy, a range of regenerative effects occur, such as reduced muscle loss and a decrease in range-of-motion impairments.
A New Modality for Treating Pain
The therapy creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation in the body, resulting in decreased pain for patients experiencing conditions such as osteoarthritis, meniscus tears, frozen shoulders, and carpal tunnel syndrome, among others.
Increased blood flow to the treated area prevents cell death that causes tissue damage. Once your cells absorb the energy from the light, the increased blood flow supports cellular regrowth. With continued treatment, the pain and swelling decrease while the range of motion improves.
This makes it the best option for those seeking a safe and natural treatment to heal their bodies without the use of prescription medications or invasive surgery. This therapy has been used extensively in sports medicine, professional sports clubs, and even among Olympic teams.
Benefits of Regenerative Photonic Therapy
Aside from pain pain management, regenerative photonic therapy is also used to treat diabetic wounds and periodontal diseases.
Furthermore, this therapy uses very low levels of light, which makes it safe and painless. The light is diffused in a large area, and not concentrated in a localized area as with other types of laser treatments.
