What Happens During a Typical Treatment Session?
The patient is interviewed, and, based on their complaint, treated with Photon therapy for 5-20 minutes in the appropriate areas. Moderate pain relief is often achieved after only one treatment; however a series of treatments is often prescribed to limit recurrence of pain.
What are the Advantages Compared To Other Therapies?
Faster healing: Accelerates cell development in damaged tissue as well as stimulating bone and cartilage regeneration
Anti-inflammatory action: Reduces swelling and accelerates healing times of soft tissue injuries
Increased vascular activity: Results in an increase of microcirculation of lymphatic system and small blood vessels in injured tissue
Stimulates nerve function: Accelerates the regeneration of damaged nerves.
Fast: Typical treatment is between 10 and 20 minutes
Nonpharmalogical: No hidden side effects
Safe: Emits pure, non-ionizing light
Non-invasive: Unlike painful injections, the skin is not physically penetrated
Economical: Costs less than other therapy and offers greater benefits
Are The Treatments Uncomfortable or Painful?
Unlike other modalities, no sticky pads or cold gels are required. Most patients feel no particular sensation other than movement of air from the small fan used to cool the emitter.
Are There Any Contraindications?
As with any therapy, it is not applied over cancer, infection, a pregnant uterus, or the eyes. Patients with these conditions CAN be treated with Photon Therapy at other locations in their body.
Is There Any Radiation Danger or Potential to be Burned or Shocked?
Photon Therapy does not emit any x-ray (ionizing) radiation. It only emits pure light. Unlike a laser’s focused light, light emitted by this therapy diffuses and reduces the risk of burn.
Is Photon Therapy Safe for Children and Senior Citizens?
Yes. Because the treatment is so comfortable, children and seniors welcome its beneficial effects. There are also no worries about applying therapy over many types of implanted medical devices.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
This varies based on many factors, including chronicity of disease, strength of immune system, frequency of treatments, and much more. A series of 4 treatments is usually administered to evaluate effectiveness and determine the appropriate number of additional sessions.
Who May Administer Photon Therapy?
Only trained, licensed health care professionals should provide therapy. It is required that proper chart notes, treatment plan and protocol are followed.
Can Photon Therapy be Combined with Other Therapies?
Yes. Photon therapy works well alone or with other therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy and many more.
Can Changes in Blood Circulation be Monitored?
Yes. High-resolution infrared images taken before and after the initial treatment clearly detail blood circulation and the effect of Photon Therapy. Please refer to our results page to see infrared images from before and after treatment.
