Light therapy is an infrared therapy that is cleared by the FDA for improving local circulation and relieving pain and inflammation. These complaints occur in a large number of medical situations including peripheral neuropathy.
Tens of thousands of individuals have experienced significant relief from the pain, tingling, numbness, inflammation and swelling that often occurs in conjunction with peripheral neuropathy. With use for just 20 minutes 3 times a week for 7-12 weeks most people report a significant improvement in their discomfort level.
What we have found with our patients at Vitality Medical Centers is that a multimodal approach that includes light therapy and some of our other treatments tends to get the best results. These options can be discussed with you following a detailed history and examination with one of our medical providers.
