Photizo Sport Injury Rehabilitation Infrared Therapy Device
It's a horrible feeling when injury prevents you being able to exercise, causing you to lose your competitive edge and potentially preventing you from reaching your full athletic potential. With the Photizo Sport Injury Rehabilitation Infrared Therapy Device, you can speed up the recovery process and reduce pain by using medically proven near-infrared therapy to stimulate ATP production in damaged cells, giving them the energy they need to self-repair.

Who Can Make Gains with the Photizo Sport Injury Rehabilitation Infrared Therapy Device?
This infrared therapy device has been designed to alleviate pain, reduce swelling, minimise inflammation and speed the recovery process of a number of different common sporting injuries. Examples of this include but are not limited to:
- Ruptured tendons
- Muscle tears
- Overuse injuries such as tennis elbow
- Muscle strains
- Plantar fasciitis
- ITB syndrome
- Rotator cuff syndrome
- Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
- Shin splints
How Does Photizo Light Therapy Encourage Healing?
When you sustain an injury, damaged cells in your body respond to the trauma by generating more energy to prevent cell death. Usually this energy is created from glucose that's converted into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), but often damaged cells aren't quite capable of creating enough energy to heal and as a result they fall into senescence and die. When the correct wavelength of near infrared is applied to the skin, it encourages the mitochondria in the damaged cells to produce enough energy to sustain cell function, allowing the cells to heal.
How Easy are Photizo Handheld Infrared Devices to Use?
You don't need to be a trained medical professional to use a Photizo Handheld Device, simply place the head of the device (the end containing the LED lights) on the area the requires treatment, press the power button and wait until the timed treatment ends. After it ends, you can move it on to the next area that requires treatment and repeat.
How Do Different Photizo Products Achieve Different Effects?
The dosage of near-infrared light is what's absolutely key to the effect it has on the body, as long doses penetrate further into the body and are able to be picked up by blood, leading to deeper healing effects. The Photizo Sport has a 6 joules dose that is ideal for alleviating pain and encouraging healing.
Is There Medical Evidence That Infrared Therapy Can Give You an Edge?
A study by The National Taiwan University's Graduate Institute of Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics is part of the increasing evidence that infrared light therapy can carry out photostimulation and photobiomodulation, which has an effect on neural stimulation, wound healing, cancer treatment and nerve regeneration.
What Is the Medical Evidence for Infrared Therapy Alleviating Pain?
In a study designed to assess the degree of pain relief obtained by applying infrared (IR) energy to the lower back of patients with chronic lower back pain it was found that the patients' pain (on a scale from 1 to 10) in the treatment group fell from 6.9 out of 10 to 3 out of 10 at the end. Patients in the placebo group fell from 7.4 out of 10 to 6 out of 10.
What Is the Evidence That Infrared Therapy Promotes Healing?
In a study designed to assess the degree of healing from noninvasive red and near-infrared wavelength induced photobiomodulation, it was found that near-infrared light-induced photobiomodulation had positive effects on injuries. To put it simply, the correct wavelengths of infrared and near-infrared light were shown to assist cellular regeneration and speed up the healing process.
Are the Effects of Infrared Harmful if Overused?
Infrared light at these wavelengths will not cause burns or other irritation even if overused, however the prescribed dosage time will have the best effect for providing healing, revitalisation and wound treatment. Numerous medical studies show that if you overuse infrared light therapy on a particular area, the worst thing that will happen is it will reduce the efficacy of the treatment.
What Are the Advantages of Phototherapy for Rehabilitation?
Phototherapy is one of the most exciting medical developments in recovery and rehabilitation for a long time. Being able to use a non-invasive, drug-free, handheld device to help reduce chronic and long term pain is a phenomenal development. Having no surgery recovery time, no drug side effects and the ease-of-use that allows anyone to use it in the comfort of their own home are all incredible benefits to the world of medical rehabilitation.
What Part of the Spectrum of Light Does Photizo Utilise?
The Photizo Sport Injury Device uses both visible red light and near spectrum infrared to assist with the natural healing process. Near-infrared is the opposite end of the spectrum to harmful wavelengths of light such as ultraviolet.
Are Photizo Light Therapy Devices Medically Certified?
All Photizo light therapy devices have been CE certified, showing that they meet the General Safety and Performance Requirements (GSPR) of all relevant European Medical Device Regulations and can legally be classified and sold as a medical device in the European Union.
