Wound Healing & Muscle Recovery

Wound Healing

For any part of the body, whether it is a surgical wound or a traumatic wound, LED promotes healing within the body.  In regards to recovery from a wound, LED has been demonstrated to help the body heal quicker with less inflammation, less scarring, and a quicker overall recovery.  Superficial Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy can also help superficial wounds to heal quicker by stimulating blood flow, increasing oxygenation, and decreasing bacteria and infection risk at the wound.  Call us right away if you have a planned surgery or an expected surgery, injury or trauma and we can help you hasten the healing process and help get you on the road to recovery faster.  

Post-workout Muscle Recovery

While still a new topic being readily researched, studies have demonstrated that Red light and Near Infrared LED light therapy are beneficial for muscle health before/after a workout as it helps to:

  • Increase muscle strength;
  • Increase endurance;
  • Delay the onset of muscle fatigue during workouts;
  • Increase oxygen uptake and decrease shortness of breath;
  • Reduce delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS);
  • Prevent exercise-induced muscle damage and reduce oxidative stress;
  • Speed up muscle recovery;
  • Promote quicker healing of injuries and shorter return to play;

Reduce pain and inflammation: Red light therapy, when applied before exercise, can improve performance and endurance and can prevent muscle damage. This means longer, more powerful workouts, with less soreness afterward.  Pre-workout red light therapy also appears to be most effective for weight loss as well. When applied after exercise, red light therapy is shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, speed up muscle repair and recovery, and reduce healing time for wounds and injuries. This is especially useful for those who can’t wait to get back to the gym (or field, court, yoga studio, mountain biking trail …) following an injury, or for whom pain and soreness are an obstacle to working out more frequently.
