The Benefits of Using Infrared Light Therapy for Sport
Being active is an essential part of being alive and healthy. Our bodies need the movement and the exercise to maintain strength and carry on functioning in an optimal way. However, whether you are doing sport for fun, professionally, or as part of a health routine, being active also exposes us to the risk of potential injuries. These can range in severity from scrapes and bruises to broken bones and torn ligaments. Often, these injuries will prevent us from continuing our active lifestyle until we have fully recovered. One of the great benefits of infrared light therapy is that it helps our bodies with managing any pain.
When infrared light is applied at the right frequency and wavelengths, it promotes blood flow to the area, which also improves the supply of oxygen and necessary nutrients. Additionally, it helps to reduce the sensitivity of neural pathways and causes the body to release endorphins that provide a nontoxic, natural form of pain relief.
Other benefits of infrared light for sport include:
It Is Non-Invasive
Infrared light therapy is completely non-invasive and painless. It simply requires the user to hold the device against the area and wait for the required time to pass.
There Is No Risk of Accidentally Consuming Banned Substances
If you are a professional athlete, there is always a concern that you may accidentally use a banned substance when taking medicine, and great care must be taken to avoid this from happening. Light therapy does not pose this risk at all.
Preparing for Training
Light therapy can assist with warming the area you are going to focus on up and increasing blood flow to muscles.
Recovery After Training
This increased blood flow can also help to counteract the build-up of lactic acid in the muscles after training.
