Does Anodyne Therapy really work in relieving acute and chronic pain? Using infrared light, Anodyne therapy has been found to be effective in relieving muscular aches and pains, chronic pain, decreased circulation and peripheral neuropathy.
Everyone suffers pain at one time or another, but if you have ever been the recipient of chronic, ongoing pain, you will know that it is exhausting! Constant pain that just doesn’t go away, even with pain medication is a battle that many people face. You may not even know if someone is in pain day in and day out but that has been my story for years. Diagnosis after diagnosis, expensive and dangerous pain medications but still not the relief I was looking for.
That was my story. (If you want to read my whole story, read it here) Rheumatoid arthitus, Lupus, Fibromyalgia – I have been diagnosed with all of them at some point in my life, but the bottom line was, I was in chronic pain all the time.
They put me on 75mg of prednisone with a warning that the side effects would give me a stomach ulcer and I would go blind, with a whole host of other things. I was 32 years old and when I asked what happens when they can’t increase the dose anymore and I am 45 years old? They just shrugged their shoulders.
I knew it was not what I wanted so I took myself off all medication and went looking for natural solutions.
That was until I found Anodyne Therapy. As a bonus, it is totally natural. I am not putting anything foreign into my body and the relief I experience when using it brings tears to my eyes.
I never thought that something as simple as a retro, alien looking red lamp could get me up and functional again. Not just any lamp, this therapy was able to be purchased and used at home. While the initial outlay was not what I would call cheap, it ended my decade long search for something that would finally bring relief.
What is Anodyne Therapy?
Anodyne Therapy is a unique light therapy used to manage or relieve pain, stiffness, muscle spasm and circulation irregularities both acute and chronic ones. This infrared therapy effectively relieves pain without the use of pain killers and is completely non-invasive. It is usually given with physical therapy and applied to the area where patient’s experiences maximum pain or circulation irregularities. It was first introduced in 1994.
The key to improvement in blood flow with light therapy is Nitric Oxide. It is the body’s most powerful vasodilator. It relaxes the arteries, which helps regulate blood pressure, fights free radicals, and discourages platelets from clumping together in blood vessels and forming lymphedema. The infrared light therapy assists the body to discharge this gas from blood cells. This process makes the therapy simple and painless.
Anodyne Therapy uses a specialized machine to emit only a specific wavelength of the light spectrum via lasers, LEDs, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps and very bright full-spectrum light for a prescribed amount of time. Each wavelength in the light spectrum is said to possess specific qualities. Light therapy machines are able to offer more useful wavelength than by exposure to direct sunlight.
How Does Infrared Light Therapy Work?
Pain is one of the major problems that people encounter today. It is a big obstacle in mobility and independence in performing activities of daily living. Millions of people suffer with Peripheral Neuropathy or Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy but until recently there were no treatments found to treat this painful disorder. Not until Anodyne Therapy with the scientific name of monochromatic infrared photo energy (MIRE) was discovered.Serfory Red Light Therapy Device, Therapy Light Deep 660nm for Improved Blood Circulation and Skin
One way to manage pain is by the use of heat. Heat is the oldest way and the most basic approach used to relieve pain. Anodyne therapy uses heat in treating pain. This discovery is also called light therapy or photo therapy since the device emits a specific wavelength of light to stimulate the affected area helping circulation irregularities go away. The word anodyne means a medical treatment that soothes and relieves pain.
Anodyne Therapy equipment can consist of several types of lamps. Some have four pads that congruently conform to the body part or injured area where they are applied. Each pad has sixty tiny infrared sources. The pads are applied onto the skin so that maximum amount of absorption can take place. When they emit Infrared Thermal Energy, they can penetrate up to depth of 5cm into the body.
Some are handheld devices and others are table or floor lamps that can be manipulated to get just the right angle for it to shine on the affected area as the user sits or lies in front of it.Led Red Light Therapy Lamp for 660nm
How Long Do Anodyne Sessions Take?
It depends on the type of lamp and the condition but typically, the Anodyne Therapy process last for 20-30 minutes but its effects may persist several hours. One of the advantages of this therapy is that the pad or lamp head is very flexible and can be place anywhere on the body. Anodyne Therapy is suitable for anyone who is suffering from chronic pain, muscle aches and. So, don’t waste time, get one for your elders to help them appreciate life even at their age.
