Exercise and InLight
Whether you’re an elite athlete, fitness enthusiast or enjoy low-intensity movement like yoga or walking, InLight Medical systems can supplement your exercise routine. Light therapy optimizes performance, supports the body’s natural healing mechanisms, and helps maintain overall wellness.
How it Works
Muscles consume nutrients during exercise, and nutrient availability is directly affected by circulation. Light therapy works by increasing circulation in the muscles. Research has proven that increased blood and oxygen flow improves workout performance, aids in recovery, and helps prevent injury.
LED light therapy is a safe, painless and drug-free natural treatment for joint pain, arthritis and bursitis. Low-level light wavelengths increase circulation and stimulate nerve function. These responses can effectively reduce pain and swelling, and increase joint mobility.
InLight Medical systems are designed for regular at-home use, and come in a variety of sizes to fit different joints.
Tennis elbow is a form of tendonitis, or joint inflammation, that effects the elbow. When light therapy is applied locally to increase circulation, it’s been shown in some cases to reduce pain. Laser healing is painless, noninvasive and natural, making it an effective homeopathic treatment for the chronic low-grade pain of tennis elbow.
Light therapy is shown to have both a preventative and restorative effect on tight muscles. When applied after resistance exercise like weight training, LLLT can increase circulation to minimize muscle soreness and pain. Low-level light therapy also aids in repairing the muscles after strenuous movement, helping them to become stronger and maintain their optimum fitness level. All of this helps you get back on track faster and work out more effectively.
Instead of spending time on the sidelines icing swollen injuries, boost your body’s innate recovery processes with a painless and effective cold laser treatment. Studies show that when LED light therapy is applied before and after exercise to increase circulation, it can double the activity of the lymphatic system and relieve swollen, inflamed muscles faster.
Muscles consume nutrients during exercise, and nutrient availability is directly affected by circulation. Research has proven that increased blood and oxygen flow from low-level light therapy improves workout performance, aids in recovery, and helps prevent injury.

Ask any dancer or runner – properly warmed-up muscles perform better and are more resistant to injury. Light therapy can increase the mobility of muscles and joints when applied at the beginning of exercise, and can also aid in reducing soreness after exercise.
Light therapy can also improve muscle performance and reduce the effects of fatigue during activity. This is because the increase in blood flow carries oxygen to muscles more efficiently. LLLT is effective for both low-intensity, endurance exercise like distance running, and short, high-intensity exercise like sprinting.
When applied following exercise, light therapy is shown to reduce pain and soreness in hardworking muscles. Increased circulation from light therapy also aids in repairing the muscles after strenuous activity, helping them to become stronger and maintain their optimum fitness level. All of this helps you get back on track faster and work out more effectively.
Light therapy supports the innate healing processes of the body because of its ability to increase circulation and deliver nutrients to damaged tissues. LLLT has a therapeutic effect on muscular stress and inflammation, and can be supplemented to accelerate healing of exercise-related injuries.
