What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the peripheral nerves located outside of the brain and spinal cord are damaged. Damage is usually the result of diabetes, injuries, infections, or some metabolic problems.

The peripheral nerves send information from the brain and central nervous system to the rest of your body. When these nerves are injured, they can cause pain, numbness, and weakness throughout the body, particularly in the hands and feet. The injured nerves also can affect circulation, digestion, and other body functions.

Healing with Red Light Therapy

Studies indicate that red light therapy may ease the pain of neuropathy and help restore sensation in the feet and legs of diabetic patients. That's why we have added this therapy to our tools to treat this condition.

In addition, red light therapy can give patients relief from body pain, and inflammation. It is used to help heal. Red light therapy is helpful for tissue regeneration by healing blood flow which increases nutriton to the nerves. It can also help treat sprain/strains, sports-related injuries and brain injury.

Red light therapy treatment involves releasing light waves in the red and infrared spectrum where the frequency shrinks the fat cells releasing toxins before washing them out of the body. Red light therapy treatments are popular because they do not cause damage to skin cells like ultraviolet light.

During therapy red light pads will be placed on the skin, allowing the light’s wavelengths to communicate with the cells, producing antioxidants that stimulate the healing of muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, and tissues, while also helping reduce pain, inflammation, and discomfort. And pain reduction helps with neuropathy.
