Phototherapy in Minneapolis, MN: Phototherapy uses a specific type of light to penetrate the skin’s surface and underlying tissues to stimulate the body’s natural repair process.
The result is faster healing and reduced pain, swelling and inflammation. By providing the extra energy required for healing, the tissue is able to heal itself naturally. It penetrates deeply to stimulate tissue and enhance the healing and normalization process.
How phototherapy / light therapy works
Deep tissue light therapy applies infrared light to stimulate cells and aid in the healing process. This helps to reduce inflammation, increase healing times and alleviate pain. The phototherapy application tool is placed directly over the injured area for anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes, dependent upon the severity of the injury. During this time the light that is emitted from the instrument passes through the skins layers and reaches the target area.
When cells absorb the light energy, it initiates a series of events that eventually results in normalizing the damaged nerves or tissue as well as reduce the pain and inflammation. This accelerates the overall healing process.

- Sports injuries
- Back, knee, and neck pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
