Dr. Patricia Delzell is one of the leading experts on chronic pain treatment. The doctor’s latest post talks about the effect of light therapy on chronic pain patients. The post details how chronic pain can be treated or at least relieved using light therapy. Light therapy is delivered using various methods like blankets, light pads, lasers, saunas, lamps. However, most chronic musculoskeletal pain patients, according to the post, benefit from red to infrared light.

In recent years, there has been an increased interest in using light therapy to treat various health conditions, from chronic inflammation to pain and skin issues. Light is also used to speed up healing after an injury or surgery. However, chronic pain treatments with light therapy mainly benefit from the red to infrared spectrum. However, other colors like blue have been found to be optimal at treating skin and superficial lesions since it does not penetrate through the body. Injuries in the deep tissue benefit from IR or infrared light.

The way light therapy works is on a cellular level and specifically on the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the cell’s power generators, and they soak up the energy provided, and that allows them to generate more power, so to speak. In addition, the light activates the production of Nitrous Oxide, a vasodilator responsible for bringing in blood flow to the affected area, which speeds up the healing of the soft tissues. It has led many experts to conclude that the combination of the two effects leads to the cells repairing themselves, which promotes healing.

“I get asked many questions about light therapy, often from people who are skeptical about if it works. Then I also get asked by people who assume that all they will need is light therapy to get rid of chronic pain. That’s why I decided to put all of these questions to rest by answering them in my blog post. Not only does this answer all the “how” and “why” questions but, it should also caution people against the use of so-called light therapy devices.” Said Dr. Delzell.

She added, “Light therapy is still very new, and there is a lot of research that still needs to be done.”.”
