LED Light Therapy and Arthritic Pain: What You Should Know
Did you know that recent studies show that approximately 350 million people worldwide suffer from arthritis? And that number includes men and women, both children and adults, with nearly 40 million people in the U.S affected by this disease.
The Mayo Clinic defines arthritis this way: “Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more of your joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis causes cartilage — the hard, slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones where they form a joint — to break down. Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease in which the immune system attacks the joints, beginning with the lining of joints.”
If you have every suffered from the effects of arthritis, then you know the pain and discomfort this disease can cause. But there is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical alternative to treating arthritic pain; LED red light therapy.
Just like plants getting their energy from the sun during photosynthesis, light therapy uses specific, proven wavelengths to stimulate a natural response in human tissue that can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, ease muscle pain, relieve joint stiffness, and enhance overall cell performance on a microscopic level. Those suffering from arthritic pain could no doubt benefit from using an LED red light therapy that is FDA-cleared to treat the pain associated with arthritis. Light therapy works by boosting cellular energy to encourage and enhance the body’s ability to hear itself from the inside out.
Celluma’s shape-taking properties allow cells to absorb even more light energy to achieve maximum restorative potential. Celluma’s unique and superior light therapy device design offers pain-relieving therapeutic benefits equal to or better than more powerful and expensive devices, making all-natural pain management a very real possibility for all people who suffer from arthritis and other forms of chronic pain.
When it comes to effective treatment of pain conditions with LED light therapy, wavelength is the key to success. Compared to blue light therapy, near-infrared wavelengths can penetrate deep into the muscle and joint tissue to alleviate pain, increase circulation and decrease inflammation. LED light therapy provides compromised cells with extra energy to accelerate the natural repair of compromised tissue cells, foster cell production, and restore homeostasis within the body.
Originally developed by NASA engineers for pain management and injury treatment on long-term space missions, red light therapy is used today as a safe and natural method of treating a variety of pain and skin conditions, including arthritis. With the advancements in the technology of red light therapy device design, people can take advantage of self-administered red light therapy at home. However, not all light therapy is created equal.
Celluma Light Therapy’s approach to pain management is inspired by light, proven by science, and cleared by the FDA. Celluma’s versatile, all-in-one Blue, Red, and Infrared light therapy systems are effective on different parts of the body, and treats an array of pain-causing conditions.
Unlike other LED red light therapy devices on the market, Celluma has the unique ability to contour close to the skin’s surface for increased light absorption and optimal therapeutic efficacy. Don’t settle for a red light therapy device with no FDA clearance and no studies to back up its claims of effectiveness. Get to know our 13 light therapy models and see which one is the best option for your treatment needs.
The following red light therapy devices in our Celluma SERIES can help you combat the inflammation and join pain that comes from arthritis as each has a mode for dealing specifically with aches and pains. The Celluma PRO/iPRO, LITE/iLITE, HOME, SPORT, our award-winning handheld POD, and our full-body DELUX/XL will all address the joint pain and stiffness caused by arthritis.
