Infrared Therapy for Musculoskeletal Healing and Pain Relief
Heat lamps emit infrared light, that unlike ultraviolet light, promotes tissue healing and is effective in reducing a variety of musculoskeletal pain issues. Through conduction and radiation, infrared light transfers heat from the source to the body surface and penetrates below the skin to warm the underlying tissues. Warmth increases blood flow to the area bringing oxygen-rich and tissue healing blood to the area of pathology. Warm muscles more efficiently relax to reduce tension and the associated stimulation of free nerve endings. Infrared therapy has been shown to help in controlling and healing inflammatory conditions.
Because of its depth in tissue penetration, its ability to target almost any body part, and its comfort in application, infrared heat is used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Muscle pain and stiffness
- Muscle spasming
- Adhesive capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
- Low back pain and spasming
- Neck pain
- Knee, ankle, wrist, and elbow pain
- Joint osteoarthritis
In addition, because if its ease in use, switch it on and position over exposed body part, infrared therapy has become a popular modality for home use.
