Chronic pain is by far the most common symptom experienced by people of all ages and backgrounds, from all over the world. Whether caused by old injury, aging, or an underlying disease or condition, everyone is looking for an affordable, effective form of treatment that helps them live healthier, more pain-free lives.
And where there is pain, there is almost always some form of inflammation — these two symptoms appear to go hand in hand in nearly every case, with inflammation often contributing in part to the pain. So it follows that one of the most effective ways to manage pain is to also manage the inflammation involved.
Quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to manage chronic pain, LED Light Therapy has proven to be remarkably effective — according to both intensive clinical trials and thousands of medical practitioners and home users — while also being noninvasive, drug free, pain free and more affordable compared to medical procedures and prescription medications.
Chronic pain is the number one reason people see their doctor. Pain and inflammation are signals that your body needs you to take action. Empower yourself and get the inspiration, knowledge and tools you need to help heal the root causes of pain so that you can regain your freedom and not miss out on life again because of pain.
How LED Light Therapy Can Help
Since its discovery almost 50 years ago, Photobiomodulation (PBM) Therapy — also known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and more commonly referred to today as LED Light Therapy — has undergone immense study, especially in the past decade with the advent of LED light technology.
Amazingly, it was discovered that LED light has similarly beneficial applications for our health as low-level lasers, minus the risk of pain and discomfort. Additionally, handheld LED light therapy devices are so safe and easy to use, they require no specialized training, allowing them to be utilized in the comfort of your home.
With many trials and studies showing LED Light Therapy’s effectiveness for pain management, chronic pain management and inflammation reduction, it’s no wonder this new treatment option is being adopted by medical professionals and home users everywhere.
LED Light Therapy for Chronic Pain
Let’s consider some of the most common types of chronic pain — arthritis and diabetic pain. One study (Stelian et al., 1992) on osteoarthritis of the knee in elderly patients found that red and near-infrared light provided over a 50% reduction in pain, with significant functional improvement as well.
For diabetic pain sufferers, LED Light Therapy has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation in diabetic wounds, with one preclinical study review (Karkada et al., 2020) finding that Light Therapy improves wound-healing properties by regulating inflammatory cytokines levels and enhancing cell proliferation and migration. Another study (Jere et al., 2021) found red light effective for chronic wounds in diabetic patients.
Another common source of chronic pain is the skin condition psoriasis, which causes itching, burning and soreness, along with stiff, swollen joints. One study (Lesiak et al., 2021) found that blue LED light provides a safe, highly effective treatment for relieving symptoms — which makes handheld light therapy devices like the Visum Light, equipped with multiple colors, a far more cost-effective and versatile option than single-color devices.
What about migraines, another common cause of chronic pain? One study (Martin et al., 2021) found that green LED light significantly reduced the number of headache days in subjects suffering from chronic migraine — further proof that a multi-colored light device is the best option for medical professionals and home users alike.
The Visum Light for Chronic Pain
Just as LED Light Therapy has proven effective for a wide range of chronic pain conditions, the Visum Light was designed to provide what most other light devices cannot — a comprehensive, all-in-one approach to your LED Light Therapy needs.
With a number of color combinations and operating modes, you can customize therapies from one use to the next with the press of a few buttons. And with the ability to choose pre-programmed patterns or set the Nogier Frequencies, color combinations and therapy durations yourself, you have complete control — all in a streamlined, easy-to-use interface.
The Visum Light’s non-invasive, non-thermal application and nearly nonexistent side effects, combined with its ability to significantly reduce pain and inflammation while improving quality of life, make it the only comprehensive low-level LED light therapy device you’ll ever need.
