Chronic PAIN-X-Therapy is THE NEW GENERATION OF THERAPY for humans and animals. Hippocrates’ healing philosophy has begun to re-influence the medical fields. Hipporcrates is quoted as follows “First do no harm” and “Honor the healing power of nature”.
Light therapy has been shown in over 40 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. Both visible and infrared light have been shown to effect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level. Visible light penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm. It is very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points and is particularly effective in treating infections. Infrared light (904nm) penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm which makes it more effective for bones, joints, deep muscle, etc.
Depth of penetration is defined as the depth at which 60% of the light is absorbed by the tissue, while 40% of the light will continue to be absorbed in a manner that is less fully understood. Treating points with Light can have a dramatic effect on remote and internal areas of the body through the stimulation of nerves, acupuncture and trigger points that perform a function not unlike transmission cables.
This technology is now becoming accepted and widely used in human medicine as well. Light therapy stimulates the natural healing power in the cells of the body. This tool uses the energy of light, called photon energy, to stimulate the activity of certain cell components. By using photo energy, you have a simple, effective, non-pharmacological medical alternative. Conservative management of acute and chronic injuries and post-operative wounds have come to include the use of photo energy because it is quickly effective, cost effective, and easy to administer.
Light is energy that moves in a wave pattern. Light is also characterized by its wavelength in the electromagnetic spectrum. PAIN-X-2000 uses infrared light energy which is found just outside the visible red wavelength in the spectrum. PAIN-X-2000 also uses red, orange, yellow, green, and blue which lie in the visible spectrum. These therapeutic colors of photo energy lie between the infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths. This combination of infrared and visible light wavelengths are believed therapeutic. There are components in the tissue and blood that absorbs these wavelengths and activate normal cell activity that may have been disrupted by injury or sickness. The reason for this increased cell activity is the photon. The photon is the energy portion of the light wave. For this reason we often refer to this therapy as PHOTON THERAPY.
The different types of tissue and cell types in the body all have their own particular light absorption values and characteristics. These tissues and cells will only absorb light at specific wavelengths. This is one of the reasons that PAIN-X-2000 uses the Patented Polychromatic Process. Although both visible and infrared wavelengths penetrate the tissue to different depths and affect the tissues differently, their therapeutic effects are similar.
Red wavelengths are absorbed by the skin, muscles, tissues, and bone as well as working at the physical cellular level. The green diodes are believed to be absorbed by the Bio-Electromagnetic Energy Field which surrounds the body. Green is helps balance this field and relieve stress. Green is also considered a master color and is useful as an anti-inflammatory as well as in painful joints and allergies. Orange lights are a rejuvenating color. It is warm, stimulating and energizing. It boosts energy in the lungs and stomach. It is believed to also help muscle cramps and allergies. The yellow lights are believed to be a great stimulant for the sensory and motor nervous system as well as toning muscles. It is also great for arthritis and the lymphatic system. The Blue lights are believed to be a contractor and restrictor. It is great for any application where ice would be used. It is also great for calming and relaxing the horse.
PAIN-X-2000’s multi-diode heads make treatment of wounds easy and efficient. By holding the PAIN-X-2000 as close as possible, you know the photon energy is in contact with the area needed to be treated. Because the power density decreases with increasing distance between the diode and treatment area when using PAIN-X-2000, always maintain contact with the skin surface when possible.
The most common sports medicine uses for PAIN-X-2000 polychromatic therapy are in treating myofascia pain, joint pain, bruising, tendon problems, fractures, muscle problems, edema, and wounds. PAIN-X-2000’s polychromatic therapy is most convincing when used to treat wounds that either have failed to heal or are getting worse. We have seen wound infections resolve quickly. We have seen wounds close without a multiplication of proud flesh. It can even have an anti-bacterial effect because it can enhance the patient’s immune system thereby fighting infection. Because of the production of collagen which is induced by the PAIN-X-2000, we have seen an increase tensile strength and elasticity in scar tissue. This allows the scar tissue to withstand movement without breaking down over time. We have seen it quickly heal bruised tissue. Polychromatic infrared diode energy quickly reduces pain and tissue swelling, but time is still needed for cell repair to be complete and for tissue growth to take place. The strength that comes from growth of the repair allows the injury to withstand the stress of athletics.
At this time, research has shown no side effects from this form of therapy. Occasionally, one may experience an increase in pain or discomfort for a short period of time after treating chronic conditions. This occurs as the body reestablishes new equilibrium points following treatment. It is a phenomenon know as a “healing crisis”, this may occur as part of the normal process of recovery in a select few. Now with the increase of energy in the area, the body has to wake up and recognize the problem that it had learned to ignore. Therefore the increase in pain or discomfort is just the body acknowledging an old problem. With just a few treatments, patients start noticing an improvement in this area.
