Infrared Therapy-Healing Lamp
Infrared therapy can be very powerful and effective for lower back pain relief and sciatic pain relief. Just sit back and relax as you read about infrared therapy using a healing lamp.
1) Infrared Therapy-History
Infrared therapy has come a long way since the 1960’s when research began (in earnest) on light therapy for lower back pain relief. In the early days it was discovered that whatever colour on the light spectrum was used (blue, green, red) beneficial effects were noted in the body through light therapy, this was because light penetrates easily through the skin into muscles and tissues underneath which are often in spasm.
As research progressed however, the ‘red’ end of the light spectrum was found to be the best for increased healing and blood and cellular stimulation to stimulate healing.It was found that red light wavelengths (630 to 700 nm) penetrated deeper into human tissue than ordinary light and that red infrared wavelengths (800 to 1000nm) penetrated even deeper, equivalent to upto 6 cms deeper.
Infrared therapy is therefore more effective as a healing lamp than a normal light therapy lamp.
2) Healing Lamp Use For Lower Back Pain Relief
An infrared healing lamp helps to rejuvenate cells, stimulate relaxation and speed up the healing processes in the spine or in muscles, tendons or nerves that are in spasm or cramp in the lower back.
By shining the lamp waves on the spine for a length of time (this may vary according to the pain) then light waves will increase blood circulation (in studies the infrared increase was found to be 4000x faster than healing lamps).
Regular use of a healing lamp on the spine therefore can relax muscle knots and spasms and ease sciatic nerve pain also, increasing blood flow and oxygen to the painful areas.
