When we feel pain, our first thought is usually to reach for a pill or some other form of medication. But what if there was an alternative solution that could provide relief without the potential side effects of chemically-based medications? Anodyne therapy is exactly that - a natural form of relief from chronic and acute pain without meds. Here's what you need to know about this innovative, drug-free approach to managing chronic pain.
Anodyne therapy or Infrared Therapy is a unique light therapy used for the treatment of
pain. This infrared therapy effectively brings pain relief without the
use of drugs and is non-invasive, meaning no needles or other instruments are used during the procedure. It does this by harnessing the healing
power of infrared light. Infrared light emits wave lengths of energy
and it can penetrate up to 5cm into the body.

pain relief... while you relax!
This monochromatic infra-red photo-thermal energy improves circulation to nerves and tissues in the area where the treatment pads are placed and so reduces neuropathic pain, stiffness, muscle spasms and areas of chronic pain.
The key to the dramatic improvement in blood flow with Anodyne light therapy is Nitric Oxide. The infrared light therapy helps the body to release this gas from the blood cells. Nitric Oxide gas is the body’s most powerful vasodilator and also known to be one of the main pain relieving ingredients in pain medications such as morphine. Nitric Oxide molecules relax the arteries, help regulate blood pressure, fights free radicals, and discourages platelets from clumping together in the blood vessels. By increasing the production of nitric oxide and improving circulation, Anodyne therapy relieves pain.
The Anodyne treatment system is simple and painless. Heat pads are placed directly on the skin over the area of pain or injury. Therapy pads are flexible so they can fit the shape of parts of the body. The pad is in direct contact with the skin so the light can be better absorbed by the skin. Energy from the lights penetrates beneath the skin and is absorbed by deep tissue causing the body to release nitric oxide, making the blood vessels become larger. After just 30 minutes of treatment, blood flow is enhanced by 400 percent, and this boost in local circulation persists for several hours after the pads are removed.

Anodyne light therapy provides a painless, non - invasive treatment for anyone where an increase in circulation would help with relief of pain and inflammation or a condition characterized by poor circulation
It is fast becoming a popular treatments for diabetic peripheral neuropathy and a wide variety of other clinical conditions such as fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, strains and sprains, and wounds of any nature. Anodyne infrared therapy is used by the US military to treat elite soldiers in the Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and Special Forces. Hospitals and nursing homes use it to relieve most any kind of chronic pain. Anodyne therapy can be used during occupational therapy treatments to make other therapy more bearable, such as improving strength, flexibility, movement and function.
In addition to relieving pain, anodyne therapy also helps stimulate collagen production in the body which can result in improved skin tone and elasticity. It also increases tissue temperature which triggers a release of endorphins - substances produced naturally by our bodies that make us feel good when released!
Infrared Therapy has been clinically proven to increase local micro-circulation and reduce pain. Several clinical studies demonstrate significant clinical outcomes including restoration of protective sensation in patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, pain reduction, increased nerve conduction and faster healing of diabetic ulcers and other chronic wounds. Anodyne therapy provides a natural solution for those struggling with chronic or acute pain looking for an alternative option than traditional medications. Not only does it provide effective relief with minimal side effects but it can help improve overall health by increasing collagen production and decreasing inflammation! Best of all? It's FDA approved so you know it's safe for use! See our recommended Far Infrared Therapy Retailer.
