LED LIGHT THERAPY
PAIN AND HEALING
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) provide safe technology for delivering light therapy. Physio’s, surgeons and sports medicine specialists treat a wide range of severe and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and pain with LED Light Therapy (or Phototherapy as it’s sometimes known).
LED Light Therapy is also used to speed up the healing process of wounds following surgery or to heal chronic and non-healing wounds. Impaired wound healing is a common complication associated with diabetes, LED Light Therapy has shown a vast improvement in diabetic wound healing.
HOW IT WORKS
HEALITE II LED Light therapy has many key benefits, including reducing the pain, discomfort and inflammation at the same times as increasing blood flow to the treated areas and triggering the body's own tissue repair processes. It works by stimulating the healing process at a cellular level repairing and reversing damage which makes it an excellent treatment post invasive or minimally invasive procedures.

Are LED Light Therapy Treatments Safe?
Photo therapy is completely safe and approved by the FDA
Will it damage my eyes?
Unlike sunlight, prolonged exposure to LED light does not harm the eyes. Although it is best to stay safe when having a treatment done. We therefore ask patients to wear protective eye wear.
Is LED light therapy similar to light from sunbathing?
Although sunbathing does produce a feeling of wellbeing and is vital Vitamin D production, there is a difference between light. For example there is no risk of sunburn using LED light therapy, and the technology does not give out the harmful rays that the sun produces UVA or UVB, the rays that cause skin damage, ageing and burning.
How ling does it take and how many sessions are needed?
This depends largely on what and where we are treating, sessions take as little as 11 minutes and the number of course will depend on what we are treating, a full consultation will determine this.
