The Benefits of Light Therapy in Fibromyalgia Treatment

Fibromyalgia is not understood to be caused by any theory, as there is very little evidence to support it. However, it is believed to be caused by:

1. Sleep disorders

2. Predisposition to genetic factors

3. Immune System Abnormalities

Fibromyalgia treatment is often very complex and may involve many health care providers, including doctors, physiotherapists, psychiatrists, and chiropractors. Relaxation techniques, therapeutic massage, and gentle exercise are some other options.

Cold optical light treatment can also be used to treat fibromyalgia symptoms. It can reduce muscle pain, depression, and fatigue, as well as sleep disorders. For fibromyalgia symptoms, there are three types of light therapy: Colour Therapy, Bright Light Therapy (LLLT), and Low Laser Light Therapy.

Bright light therapy is based on the belief that the body is naturally attuned to light. It uses high-powered fluorescent lights to trigger specific hormones to release which helps restore the body's natural rhythms and overall health. Bright light therapy is used to treat fibromyalgia.  

Color therapy, a type of phototherapy that delivers colored beams to different parts of the body, is growing in popularity among chronic pain sufferers. The light energy converted by the eyes to electric impulses travels through the brain and triggers the release of hormones like serotonin or endorphins.  

Low Laser Light Therapy (LLLT), also known as Cold Light Therapy and Soft Laser Light Therapy, is a treatment that reduces pain and promotes healing. It increases the energy level of certain cells within the body.  

While light therapy can be effective for many disorders, it is not recommended for everyone. This includes those with epilepsy, skin sensitivities, and bipolar disorders, as well as cataracts, cataracts, and other eye diseases.
