5 Benefits of Anodyne® Infrared Light Therapy Treatments
About Anodyne® Therapy
Anodyne® Infrared Therapy Systems are portable devices used by patients to reduce chronic inflammation and improve circulation. Pads on these devices are fitted with light emitting diodes (LEDs) that produce exclusively infrared light. This infrared light penetrates tissue to about an inch in depth and is absorbed into blood vessels. Anodyne® Therapy provides a non-invasive method to improve pain and promote healing.
Anodyne® Infrared Light Therapy Benefits
1. Reduced Chronic Inflammation and Pain
Infrared light reaches past the level of the skin to penetrate the muscles, bones, and joints. It improves circulation by playing a role in the release of nitric oxide, a molecule which relaxes blood vessels to increase blood flow. Increased circulation acts to reduce inflammation in the body and therefore decrease pain.
2. Improved Quality of Sleep
Infrared light therapy can contribute to better sleep. Studies have found that in response to infrared light treatment, melatonin – a natural hormone involved in controlling the sleep cycle – is produced by the body.
3. Decreased Stress Levels
According to research, infrared light treatment can assist in regulating the body’s sympathetic nervous system, which is involved in activating a person’s “fight or flight” response. With regulation of this system, people can experience less anxiety and panic in the face of stress.
4. Better Cardiovascular Health
The release of nitric oxide in response to infrared light benefits more than blood circulation. The activation and release of the compound contributes to blood pressure regulation, fights free radicals, and may help prevent platelet clumping.
5. Supports Muscle Recover After Injury
Infrared light treatment encourages cell and tissue repair and regeneration, aiding in muscle healing after an injury takes place.
