Elite athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and people who enjoy low-intensity activities to stay in shape like yoga or walking find InLight Medical PLT an important part of their fitness plan.
Exercise, Athletes and Light Therapy
Whether you’re an elite athlete, a fitness enthusiast, or just enjoy low-intensity activities to stay in shape like yoga or walking, InLight Medical PLT systems can be a helpful supplement to your exercise routine. Low-level polychromatic light therapy (PLT) can optimize performance, support the body’s natural healing mechanisms, and help maintain overall wellness. Professional athletes and sporting groups use PLT as part of their training and recovery programs. With InLight Medical PLT systems, you can do the same thing in your home.
Research has demonstrated that increasing the circulation of blood and oxygen flow improves workout performance, aids in recovery, and helps prevent injury. PLT increases local circulation giving muscles access to the nutrients they consume during exercise. Professional athletes and health enthusiasts report that the noninvasive, self-care application of PLT helps speed recovery from a variety of soft tissue injuries that occur with runners, football players, tennis players, and other exercise activities.
The evidence is clear. Low level polychromatic light therapy (PLT) reduces the pain and inflammation associated with:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis elbow
- Acute neck pain
- Inflammatory joint conditions
- Sports injuries
- Muscle strain and tears
- Head injuries
Polychromatic light therapy is absorbed through the skin and triggers innate cellular mechanisms that support the body’s healing processes by a process called photobiomodulation (PBM). Once stimulated, photobiomodulation initiates a cascade of downstream metabolic effects on the body that results in increased circulation, pain reduction, and tissue repair/regeneration. Researchers have confirmed PBM triggers the release of nitric oxide, the body’s natural vasodilator. Additionally, PBM activates cellular processes to create health-restoring substances, resulting in many biological and functional changes including:
- Reduced inflammation
- Accelerated skin healing
- Improved joint mobility
- Improved balance
- Reduced muscle fatigue
Scientific research has demonstrated the value of PLT for athletic performance enhancement and faster recovery from exercise fatigue. Imagine pre-conditioning your muscles with twenty-minutes of polychromatic light therapy before your workout? Maximizing muscle circulation? Increasing nitric oxide production? Then, after a hard workout, treating those muscles to another twenty-minutes of PLT, increasing circulation to targeted muscles and promoting the evacuation of lactic acid buildup?
Join the millions of people who use PLT to pre-condition their muscles for maximum endurance, quicker recovery after strenuous exercise, and faster recovery from sports-related injuries. InLight PLT therapy pads come in a variety of sizes and shapes to fit different areas of the body comfortably. For best results, customers alternate PLT therapy pad placement options using the Progressive Multi-Pulse™ technology in 20-minute sessions daily. Whether for home use or professional training purposes, InLight Medical polychromatic light systems with Progressive Multi-Pulse™ technology is built for you and your family.
