Infrared light therapy

Infrared irradiation (IRR) is electromagnetic energy invisible to the human eye, having a wavelength between 760nm to 1mm. In the electromagnetic spectrum, the infrared owns the place between visible light and microwaves.

It is used for the relief of pain and stiffness and to enhance healing of soft tissue lesions and skin condition, by producing the superficial thermal effect in the tissues.

Therapeutic Benefit

  • Pain relief
  • Decreases muscle spasm
  • Increases the sensory nerve conduction velocity, increase in endorphins influencing the pain gate mechanism
  • Acceleration of healing and tissue repair
  • Used in combination with electrical stimulation therapy to make the skin a better conductor
