Most people would never guess that America’s leading cause of disability is actually arthritis. According to the Arthritis Foundation’s website, “As the nation’s #1 cause of disability, arthritis affects nearly 60 million adults and 300,000 children." Osteoarthritis is common among seniors and is the main cause of chronic musculoskeletal pain and disability in older populations. Joints with arthritis worsen over time and the range of motion can be reduced which limits mobility decreasing comfort and quality of life.
Traditional care takes a pharmacological approach to treating arthritis through both NSAIDs and prescription drugs and injections. But Red Light Therapy is a safer and more natural way to effectively manage arthritis without the risks presented by pharmaceuticals and can be self-administered as needed in the comfort of your home. Red Light Therapy is the use of both red and near-infrared light to stimulate healing and pain relief and it results in a reduction of inflammation, and improved function. Red Light Therapy is also known as photobiomodulation and low-level light therapy. Scientific studies show that both Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis respond to the application of Red Light Therapy.
Red Light Therapy pad systems offer many benefits for arthritis sufferers including fast pain relief, lower inflammation, reduce swelling, relieved stiffness, and helps improves joint mobility. Because red light therapy stimulates the body's own healing processes it supports tissue, bone, and cartilage regeneration.
