What is the technology?
Photobiomodulation (PBM) technology. Some refer to it as light therapy, low-level light therapy, LLLT, photonic medicine, and other off-shoot names. When you begin using light therapy, you will quickly discover how remarkable this molality is and the countless and highly efficacious uses for the human body. LED (PBM) systems are close to cold laser (PBM). Both are PBM, both utilize the same light wave nanometers, both can be pulsed at various hertz rates to initiate the body’s own innate healing ability. Both come in mono and polychromatic applications (polychromatic is more than one light wave at a time), both create similar physiological changes at the cellular level. Laser is coherent and LED is incoherent, meaning the laser is concentrated to a narrow field and LED is a much wider field and thus, can treat large bio sites at a time.
- LED, or light-emitting diode therapy, is a treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light, including Red and Near-Infrared.
- NASA originally developed it for use on shuttle missions and later found it to have promise for wound treatment. LED light therapy is now used by some of the medical segment. Top universities like Harvard, Oxford, Yale, Stanford and hundreds of other universities have full departments committed to this technology.
- Your healthcare provider uses Photobiomodulation pulsed frequencies based on the health needs of the patient. Polychromatic light therapy, Near Infrared and Red, are the most commonly used frequency combination to initiate the body’s own innate healing ability. It is being used for hundreds of inflictions including peripheral neuropathy, nerve pain, neurodegenerative, neuropathic, neurological issues, anti-aging, athletic recovery, and literally hundreds of other uses on patients.
Light-emitting diode (LED) light therapy is growing in popularity in doctors’ and chiropractors’ offices. Many have a cold laser which is similar to the LED systems. Both laser and LED pulse varying LED light frequencies into the cells and can deliver similar results. LED is safer, easier to use, and is more practical and effective for home use applications. Medical professionals are using this technology on hundreds of inflections, but the most common uses are:
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Nerve pain
- Neurological disorders
- Athletic recovery
- Spinal decompression
- Reduce inflammation
- Improve blood flow
- Wound healing support
How it works
Treatment with the NIR light system is simple and painless. Flexible pads, containing multiple infrared and visible red diodes frequencies, are placed directly on the skin over the area of pain or injury. Light energy from the diodes penetrates deeply into the body and is absorbed by proteins within cells releasing nitric oxide, the body’s natural vasodilator. After just 20 minutes of treatment, blood flow is increased to nerves and other tissues, and this boost in local circulation persists for several hours after the pads are removed.
- LED light therapy is so safe that it is used by hospitals on infants born with jaundice.
- Safe for unattended home care use
- There are no known side effects over 30 years of monitored use. LED light therapy technology delivers other health improvements while using on non-related body placements.
- Sessions times are usually a minimum of 20 minutes at a time, and you can treat 7 days a week with home systems.
- Home LED systems can be used at your convenience without having to go to any appointments.
- Neurocare Systems comes with built-in straps and preset pulse frequency settings which makes set up and operating the system patient friendly.
- A single LED light therapy session and a doctor’s office range from about $85 to $200, depending on your area of the country and whether you are combining it with other treatments. You can purchase a superior system for the cost of 5 to 10 visits to your doctor of treatment.
- Home LED systems pay for themselves very quickly.
- LED photobiomodulation systems are rated for long-term use on your entire family, which makes your investment invaluable.
How much does it cost?
- Medicare and other insurance providers do not cover LED light therapy so you will need to pay the full costs upfront at your doctors’ office.
- Home systems cost do vary and there is a wide range of quality as well. The Cheaper-the-Better for your health may not be the way to approach it. Pulsed Neurocare sells the finest equipment available at a very affordable cost and is less than our competitors in most cases. Less cost for better equipment made plenty of sense to us when we designed and engineered this Pulsed Neurocare and very well may be just what you have been looking for. Home use systems are a less expensive option overall than in-clinic care because you get to keep the LED device and use it for future treatments. Not to mention the time saved by treating at-home offers.
Pulsed Neurocare LED therapy systems are highest quality, advanced and affordable Photobiomodulation (light therapy) boot systems on the market. Maintaining our elite status is not taken lightly and we continue to strive to improve the technology and protocols at our Pulse Centers. Our job does not end when you order your system, but rather it begins. We are here for you and will coach you through the process of using this equipment with your home care and will provide you lifestyle tips to further add to the success of your self-care.
