Are you working at home sitting at a makeshift desk, the kitchen table, or at the coffee table? Many workers have found themselves working eight hours a day in a less than favorable "home office" since COVID changed the way we work. It happened to me. My upper back got out from bending over my laptop in my living room. So what's a body to do about the muscle stiffness, back pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel or any other type of musculoskeletal pain that creeps in from a less than ideal desk, chair or posture during hours of working at home? Enter red and infrared light therapy.
Red Light Therapy to the Rescue!
Near-infrared & red light therapy is a great answer for home workers seeking pain relief. LED light therapy is non-invasive, and has no known negative side effects. It is very simple and safe to administer. Pain decreases or disappears, making red light therapy an effective all-natural alternative to costly and potentially addictive pain medications or surgery. HealthLight therapy systems are Class II medical devices with an FDA clearance for relieving pain, increasing circulation, relaxing muscles and relieving muscle spasms, and relieving the aches and stiffness caused by arthritis. The pain relief and cellular benefits experienced during a infrared therapy session can last for several hours afterwards.
How Red and Infrared Light Therapy Works
During an therapy session photons of light penetrate the body starting a photochemical reaction in the body’s cells. Beneficial chemical processes are triggered that dramatically increase blood flow delivering more oxygen and nutrients to the treatment area. This reduces pain, increases blood flow and supports the body’s natural healing processes.
NIR Therapy sessions have been described by users as being gentle, relaxing, soothing, and comforting. NIR Therapy is simple and convenient to self-administer. Just place the pads directly on the body where needed, turn on the system, select a setting, and the pads proceed to work their magic. A typical therapy session lasts twenty minutes, during which time you can read, watch television, listen to music, or talk on the phone. Best of all, you can even conduct a therapy session while you work, tackling pain as soon as it starts. HealthLight’s Express Controller Therapy Pad systems have conveniently attached controllers and one-button operation are perfect for in-home use.
Consider purchasing an red light therapy pad system today. If you are a home user, not only will you benefit, but the same system can help everyone in your family. If you are a health practitioner, one controller and just one or two NIR Therapy pads are all you need to make a big difference in your clinic!
