We use a powerful wave of light to penetrate skin, tissue, and surrounding nerves to treat soft tissue injuries, reduce pain, promote wound healing, and provide therapy for chronic conditions such as arthritis and failed back syndrome. Before and after infrared images of the treated area show increased blood circulation that allows the body to heal itself without drugs or surgery.
Firefly Light Therapy has mixed-spectrum of blue light, red light, and infrared light. It has been shown that blue light stimulates lymph activity, promotes healing of cutaneous injuries (burns, cuts, contusions), and even helps to combat MRSA. The benefits of red and near infrared light include stimulation of stem cells, reduced inflammation, increased production of collagen, and increased delivery of oxygen into the mitochondria.
At the Osteopathic Center, we use this mixed spectrum of light most often for:
- Back pain
- Muscle pain
- Knee pain
- Post-op pain
- Chronic pain
- Neuropathies (impaired blood circulation leading to numbness)
- Carpel tunnel syndrome
- Sinus infections
