LED Light and Laser Therapy
LED Light and Laser Therapy is an effective treatment for pain, inflammation, musculoskeletal conditions and skin conditions.
At Naturopathic Foundations Health Clinic we use the Miltapod device from France.
How it Works
The Miltapod device works in three ways:
It emits a low intensity laser
It contains a polychromatic infrared emitter and photonics
Creates a constant magnetic field (magnetic tunnel circular)
Different Wave Frequencies of Light
These differences are associated with specific colours of light.
Blue light has a wave frequency of 470nm. It penetrates tissue to a depth of about 4-6 mm. It is beneficial in treating skin conditions.
Red light has a wave frequency of 660nm. It penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm. It is beneficial in treating skin conditions.
Infrared light has a wave frequency of 880nm. It penetrates to a depth of 30-40 mm. It is beneficial for bone pain, joint pain and deep muscle problems.
Musculoskeletal conditions: arthritis, low back pain, sciatica, muscle sprains & strains, frozen shoulder, chronic muscle pain, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome
Skin conditions: acne, eczema, rosacea, herpes simplex, warts, post-operative healing of scars, cellulite, facial rejuvenation.
