Did you ever wake up with a stiff neck and could hardly turn your head without pain?  Or felt extreme pain from a rotator cuff injury in your shoulder that limited your range of motion, stopping you from moving your arm to do necessary tasks?

Almost everyone has experienced either one or both of these painful scenarios at some point in their lives.  But if you had a Red Light/Infrared Therapy system at your disposal, just a simple and easy twenty-minute therapy session would be all that was needed to reduce your pain and stiffness and have you feeling a whole lot better!

Red Light/Infrared Therapy

Rather than taking over-the-counter pain relievers such as Advil, Motrin IB, Aleve or Tylenol, muscle relaxants (or even corticosteroid or lidocaine injections for more acute and chronic cases of neck and shoulder pain) why not try Red Light/Infrared Therapy?  Red Light/Infrared Therapy is non-invasive, painless, effective, simple, and very easy to administer by a health practitioner or by the patients themselves in the comfort of their own homes. 

Red Light/Infrared Therapy is consistently dependable in its ability to provide fast and effective pain relief.  And Red Light/Infrared Therapy also increases circulation, reduces swelling and stiffness, and stimulates, accelerates, and supports the body’s own innate healing processes, eventually regenerating nerves and tissues – something which pain relievers and muscle relaxants cannot possibly do.

Relieves Musculoskeletal Pain

“Light therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for various musculoskeletal disorders, Including…delayed-onset muscle soreness.”[1] For more than forty-five years, peer-reviewed scientific studies have found that Red Light/Infrared Therapy, “…has been shown to reduce inflammation and edema, induce analgesia, and promote healing in a range of musculoskeletal pathologies.”[2]  Acute conditions of the neck and shoulder such as whiplash injury or sprains and strains, and chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis (a common cause of neck pain), Rheumatoid arthritis (which can contribute to shoulder problems), and frozen shoulder “are amenable”[3] to Red Light/Infrared Therapy.

Supports Cartilage, Tendons, and Nerves

Furthermore, medical research has found that “…low doses of light have demonstrated the ability to heal skin, nerves, tendons, cartilage and bones.”[4]  Red Light/Infrared Therapy’s success in supporting the body’s ability to heal cartilage, tendons, and nerves is especially important for those suffering from neck pain, which can be caused by worn joint cartilage and nerve compression; and from shoulder pain, which can come from the tendons surrounding the shoulder joint.

Proven to Relieve Neck and Shoulder Pain

Red Light/Infrared Therapy’s ability to effectively reduce pain in conditions affecting both the neck and the shoulders has been scientifically proven.  For example:

At 9.8” x 4.5”, this pad offers 90 LED’s: 45 infrared (850nm) and 45 red (660nm), with an output of 3,240 joules per 20 minute treatment. The small size of this 90 pad makes placement extremely easy, allowing it to also be used on practically every other area of the body. Other Uses: the wrist, hand, arm, elbow, stomach, back, calf, thigh, or jaw, making this pad the perfect therapy system for the whole family.  For practitioners, this pad is the perfect starter pad for growing your Light Therapy system.

The Long 180 Diode Pad offers 180 LED’s: 60 red (660 nm) and 120 infrared (850 nm), with an output of 6,480 joules per 20 minute treatment. This long and thin pad measures 5” x 16”, and is excellent for the neck or up and down the shoulder around the rotator cuff. Other Uses: This pad can also be wrapped around the elbow; the knee; the leg; the foot; the arm; the wrist; and the ankle.  Or used vertically down the length of the leg, or horizontally to treat either the front or the back of both legs or both thighs, or the tops or the soles of both feet.

      This large rectangular 8” x 15” pad is extremely easy to use to wrap over one entire shoulder, or if placed horizontally across the upper back, can reach both shoulders.  It can also be used to treat the neck if the patient leans back upon it and there is a towel or other soft fabric behind the pad to better conform it to the neck. The Large 264 Diode Pad offers 264 LED’s: 120 red (660 nm) and 144 infrared (850 nm), with an output of 10,843 joules per 20 minute treatment.
