Benefits of Red Light Therapy for Back Pain Relief

Avantir Wellness - May 6, 2024 Array

Back pain is a widespread issue affecting millions globally, hindering daily activities and diminishing quality of life. In Singapore, low back pain is a common condition and affects up to 80% of the adult population. Low back pain may result from weakened or overstretched muscles, joints, and ligaments. Other causes include slipped disc, possibly from a sports injury. While conventional treatments like medication and physical therapy offer relief to some, they may fall short in providing lasting solutions. However, a promising alternative gaining momentum is red light therapy for back pain.

Understanding Red Light Therapy

Red Light Therapy, also known as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBM), utilises specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light to penetrate the skin and stimulate cellular repair. 

When red and near-infrared light are delivered at the appropriate wavelength, intensity, and duration, the mitochondria within our body’s cells respond by producing abundant energy.

This increased energy enables our cells to function more efficiently, facilitates skin repair, promotes new cell growth, reduces inflammation, enhances skin rejuvenation, and supports the body’s natural healing processes.

The Science Behind Red Light Therapy

Research indicates that red light therapy effectively alleviates various types of pain, including back pain, by addressing underlying causes. By boosting cellular function and reducing inflammation, it aids in tissue repair and reduces pain sensitivity.

Red light therapy has been scientifically proven to reduce chronic low back pain effectively. 

Whether your back pain is caused by degenerative changes such as osteoarthritis or herniated discs, or by nerve compression like spinal stenosis and sciatica, deep-healing red light therapy can help. 

Red light therapy works by stimulating cellular energy production, activating anti – inflammatory responses, and regulating pain signalling pathways within the body. In one study by Dr Hamblin of Harvard Medical School, red light therapy effectively reduced inflammation in the brain, abdominal fat, wounds, lungs, and spinal cord. The healing happens at the cellular level, helping to promote faster recovery.

1. Effective Pain Relief: Red light therapy targets the root cause of back pain, whether it’s muscle strain, disc issues, or chronic conditions like arthritis, providing relief. Recent research by the British Pain Society reveals that NovoTHOR whole-body PBM significantly reduced pain and improved the quality of life in patients with fibromyalgia after four weeks of treatment.

2. Improved Mobility: Chronic back pain often restricts movement. Red light therapy reduces stiffness and enhances flexibility, facilitating easier daily activities.

3.Safe and Non-Invasive: Red light therapy is well-tolerated and carries minimal risk. It can be used alone or alongside other treatments without adverse effects.

4. Potential for Long-Term Relief: By addressing underlying inflammation and promoting tissue repair, red light therapy holds the potential to provide lasting relief from back pain.
