Treating Multiple Sclerosis With Red Light Therapy

Managing MS is an ongoing process, beginning with the very first symptoms and continuing throughout the disease course. Many patients with MS, Multiple Sclerosis, are surprised to find that they have significant pains along with many other symptoms. Photobiomodulation therapy from cold laser can be a helpful therapeutic approach to help ease the process.  

People with MS may also experience more stabbing type pain which results from faulty nerve signals emanating from the nerves due to MS lesions in the brain and spinal cord. A review in the European Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine compiled the results of many studies surrounding red light therapy/Lower Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and MS disorders. The research indicated that red light therapy could effectively reduce pain in adults with different MS disorders. The researchers note that practitioners who stick to the specific dosage recommendations seem to increase the effectiveness of the therapy. In the past few years, whole body red light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation has emerged to provide MS patients with whole body red light therapy treatments. It’s much more efficient and effective by treating the entire body of a MS patient. 

Research in the journal Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia highlights the effects that light therapy has on the human body.  Biological effects observed were reduction of inflammatory cells, increased fibroblast proliferation, collagen synthesis, stimulation of angiogenesis and granulation tissue formation.

Recently, a patient suffering with MS recently spoke about her experience with red light therapy and the difference it has made in her life. Deb Jones was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis decades ago. Slowly she started losing the ability to do things she loved. Even the most trivial of tasks needed external intervention. She was relegated to using a walker. She was receiving cryotherapy treatments, then the cryotherapy center purchased a Prism Light Pod and she began using red light therapy. After the first week of treatments, she saw a multitude of improvements and was fully convinced that this was the medical miracle she was looking for. Over time her chronic pain started to subside and now she is back to working full-time and living life to the fullest again.
