A meniscus tear can be really painful. This injury can be considered one of the most common cartilage injuries in the knee. A meniscus is a piece of cartilage in your knee that softly supports as well as stabilizes the joint. In other words, it protects the bones from wear and tear.
This injury tends to take place when a person suddenly changes direction while running. If you seek non-drug and non-surgical solutions, opt for our infra-red light therapy.
Common symptoms of a meniscus tear are a pain in the knee, swelling, popping sensation during the injury, difficulty in bending or straightening the leg, etc. Also, there is a tendency for your knee to lock up. You may not feel excruciating pain at first. But gradually your knee will probably hurt quite a bit.
Treating Meniscal Tears with Light Therapy can be really effective. Studies report that combined red and infrared light therapy is effective in reducing knee pain. Also, this improves the quality of life in patients suffering from knee injuries. Red light therapy reduces inflammation while this therapy also repairs tissue damage in the muscles.
Red light therapy also helps in recovering pain and injuries related to tendons, and ligaments that support the spine. It reduces the pain caused by whiplash or other injuries as well. Red light therapy heals chronic inflammation by increasing blood flow to the damaged tissues. Also, it increases the body’s antioxidant defenses.
