Infrared Therapy For Neuropathy Increasing Blood Flow To The Treated Area

Dec 19

If you suffer from neuropathy, it is important to treat the root cause of the condition to get lasting relief. Unlike medications that mask the symptoms, infrared therapy helps reduce pain and promote nerve regeneration. This is achieved by stimulating the cells in the area and reducing chronic inflammation.

Research has shown that infrared therapy for neuropathy are effective at healing the nerves. The wavelengths of the light penetrate deep into the tissues and are absorbed by the cells. This causes the release of cytochrome C oxidase, which initiates various chemical reactions in the body that promote cell repair and healing. It also activates the production of adenosine triphosphate, the energy currency of the cells. The increased cellular energy boosts the function of the nerves, resulting in improved blood circulation and reduced chronic inflammation.

In one study, scientists used monochromatic infrared photo energy to treat diabetic neuropathy and found that it significantly reduced pain, improved sensation, and improved balance in patients. The light was combined with therapeutic exercises and balance training.

Neuropathy is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people across the United States. It occurs when the nerves become damaged and can’t send messages to the brain. When the nerves are damaged, they can’t send the correct signals to the muscles, which results in a loss of sensation and balance. It can be caused by many factors, including diabetes, autoimmune disorders, infections, alcoholism, and nutritional deficiencies.

Using infrared therapy for neuropathy, we can reverse the damage to the nerves, improve sensation, and decrease balance issues. The treatment is noninvasive and can be done in our office or with an FDA-cleared device at home.

When the infrared light penetrates the skin, it is absorbed by the mitochondria in the cells and stimulates the production of ATP. The increase in cellular energy allows the cells to better communicate with each other and promotes nerve regeneration. It also reduces oxidative stress, which is a major contributor to the development of neuropathic pain.

Another way that infrared therapy works is by increasing blood flow to the treated area. This promotes the release of nitric oxide, which acts as a vasodilator and increases oxygen delivery to the cells. The increased blood flow is essential for healthy nerves, as it provides nutrients and oxygen to the cells that help reduce pain.

The infrared light is then able to break down the inflammatory molecules in the body, which reduces the chronic inflammation that causes pain and discomfort. This is why it’s so effective in relieving neuropathic pain. It can be done in conjunction with other treatments, such as physical therapy, to ensure that the results last long-term.
