Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions are necessary?
This depends on your doctor’s diagnosis, as well as your overall health. Many patients experience immediate pain relief after the first session. Long term healing results are often felt after the 3rd, 4th session. Chronic symptoms respond best with a minimum of three sessions a week for four to six weeks, then tapering to once a week or once ever other week with improvement. Treatment can continue if the problem persists.

How long does a treatment take?
Typical sessions last 10 to 20 minutes. To achieve the highest bio stimulation effects, treatments can be performed once or twice daily for a maximum of 20 minutes.

Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
Yes. Near- infrared (NIR) light therapy can be utilized along with traditional therapy including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy, and post-surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can increase the treatments effectiveness.

Are there any side effects or restrictions for NIR exposure?
Very few side effects have been reported by worldwide healthcare professionals who have relied on this therapy for over 25 years. NIR therapy may trigger a photoactive rash with certain medications, so please consult your pharmacist before treatment.

Is NIR light therapy effective?
Absolutely. NIR polychromatic spectrum-which has been documented through thousands of fundamental research studies to analyze its effects on tissue repair, rejuvenation, and pain relief mechanisms-has been methodically studies since 1965. NIR photobiomodulation therapy is a non-invasive and highly effective adjunct therapy in the field of prevention, as well as in the healing of pressure-related issues such as bed sores and diabetic foot ulcers.

Ask your doctor about NIR non-invasive and medication-free therapy.

Therapeutic Effects

Non-invasive exposure of near-infrared (NIR) light therapy increases microcirculation and promotes delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the affected tissue. The optimal healing environmental reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, and stiffness. As the injured tissue heals and returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored.
