Chiropractor In Amarillo Talks About Red Light Therapy
Some of you may have heard about this new, non-invasive therapy spas and salons have been offering called Red Light Therapy. Most of these institutions boasting the benefits to help reduce wrinkles and help blemishes heal faster. While those results are impressive on their own, I find that many people remain unaware of the MANY other afflictions Red Light Therapy can effectively treat such as:
• Plantar Fascitis
• Chronic Pain
• Post Surgical Procedures
• Uneven Skin Tone
• Minor Burns
• Stretch Marks
• Hair Loss
As a chiropractor in Amarillo focusing on pain relief, you can see how one might be interested in this technology. Believe it or not, the list goes on from there. The benefits of both cosmetic and medical are astounding. So what exactly is Red Light Therapy? How does it work, and what are the risks?
Red Light Therapy, also known as Low-Intensity Light Therapy (LILT) is a process in which one uses visible red light to amplify metabolic processes at the cellular level that happen in the skin. The light penetrates your skin to a depth of 8-10 millimeters. At this level, the Red Light Therapy encourages the following things to happen simultaneously:
• Increase collagen production
• Reduce inflammation
• Increase circulation and formation of new capillaries
• Increase cellular clean up
• Increase lymph system activity
All of these processes happen in your body naturally, but different factors such as age and injury can cause a decrease in these activities. By using a wavelength between 620 NM up to 700 NM, Red Light Therapy can help bring those functions back up to a level that can aid in decreasing signs and symptoms from all the ailments listed above.
The best part about this therapy is that there are no known risks involved. Red Light Therapy is all-natural, non-invasive, requires no downtime, and causes no adverse reactions such as itching or burning sensations on the skin.
