Light Therapy for Hip Pain
Hip pain is a common complaint, especially among aging adults and arthritis sufferers. The hip joint is an extremely important part of the body, bearing most of a person’s weight while they walk, run, jump and even sit. It gets a lot of wear and tear over the course of a lifetime and, unfortunately, this can lead to chronic aches and pains in the area.
Traditional treatment for hip joint pain relief typically involves some sort of anti-inflammatory medication or surgical intervention. Unfortunately, these are often expensive and ineffective, and a full hip replacement is required before the joint can be used again.
Light therapy for hip pain uses LED lights and offers an affordable alternative to these options. During the treatment, the hip region is exposed to red, blue and infrared lights. These wavelengths stimulate cellular metabolism in the area, which helps improve circulation, increases cellular regeneration and kick-starts the healing process. The entire treatment is non-invasive, painless and completely safe to use.
Low level laser therapy, or LLLT, is also an option in treating and alleviating hip pain. This therapy utilizes cold lasers to stimulate the production of endorphins in the area, relieving aches and pains naturally. After just one session, many patients report hip pain reduction as high as 75 percent.
