dr Patricia Delzell gives insights into the treatment of chronic pain with light therapy
dr Delzell is investigating how light therapy works and why it could be an excellent way to treat different types of chronic pain.
dr Patricia Delzell is one of the leading experts in the treatment of chronic pain. The doctor’s latest post talks about the effect of light therapy on chronic pain sufferers. The article describes how chronic pain can be treated or at least alleviated with light therapy. Light therapy is performed using various methods such as blankets, light pads, lasers, saunas, lamps. However, most patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain benefit from red to infrared light, according to the post.
In recent years there has been growing interest in using light therapy to treat various health conditions, from chronic inflammation to pain and skin conditions. Light is also used to speed healing after injury or surgery. However, chronic pain treatments with light therapy mainly benefit from the red to infrared spectrum. However, other colors such as blue have been found to be optimal for treating skin and superficial lesions as they do not penetrate the body. Deep tissue injuries benefit from IR or infrared light.
Light therapy acts on the cellular level and specifically on the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the cell’s power generators and absorb the energy provided, allowing them to generate more power, so to speak. In addition, the light activates the production of nitrous oxide, a vasodilator responsible for bringing blood flow to the affected area, speeding up the healing of soft tissues. This has led many experts to conclude that the combination of the two effects causes cells to repair themselves, which promotes healing.

“I get a lot of questions about light therapy, often from people who are skeptical that it works. Then I also get asked by people who assume that light therapy is all they need to get rid of chronic pain. Because of this, I decided to answer all of these questions by answering them in my blog post. Not only does this answer all the “how” and “why” questions, but it should warn people against using so-called light therapy devices.” said dr Delcell.
she added “Light therapy is still very new and there is still a lot of research to be done.”
