anodyne therapy

Anodyne therapy is a unique light therapy used for the treatment of pain. This infrared therapy effectively brings pain relief without the use of drugs and is non-invasive. It does this by harnessing the healing power of infrared light. Infrared light emits wave lengths of energy and it can penetrate up to 5cm into the body.

The Anodyne treatment system is simple and painless. Four flexible pads, each containing 60 small infrared lights, are placed directly on the skin over the area of pain or injury. Therapy pads are flexible so they can fit the shape of parts of the body. The pad is in direct contact with the skin so the light can be better absorbed by the skin. Energy from the lights penetrates beneath the skin and is absorbed by deep tissue causing the body to release nitric oxide, making the blood vessels become larger. After just 30 minutes of treatment, blood flow is enhanced by 400 percent, and this boost in local circulation persists for several hours after the pads are removed.

Anodyne light therapy provides a painless, non - invasive treatment for anyone where an increase in circulation would help with relief of pain and inflammation or a condition characterized by poor circulation

It is fast becoming a popular treatments for diabetic peripheral neuropathy and a wide variety of other clinical conditions such as fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, strains and sprains, and wounds of any nature. Anodyne infrared therapy is used by the US military to treat elite soldiers in the Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and Special Forces. Hospitals and nursing homes use it to relieve most any kind of chronic pain. Anodyne therapy can be used during occupational therapy treatments to make other therapy more bearable, such as improving strength, flexibility, movement and function. Source:
