LED light therapy for pain, gimmick or it actually works?

    Somebody posted pics of someone who lost some fingers sticking their hand in a lawnmower a bit ago, so I’d think a motorcycle related injury is more than fair game.

    Wow, that’s really cool!

    I’m covered in scars like that from high speed get offs. I’ve had multiple bones exposed and had to regrow skin... not fun and takes forever although I heal really fast... I hope that stuff is behind me but if it happens again I’ll definitely look this up for treatment.

    I don't know about LED therapy, but I have first hand experience with cold laser therapy and it works amazing for areas of the body that are poorly vascularized.

    A lot of the chiropractors who are rebranding themselves as functional neurologists are heavily marketing them. Not sure that legitimizes them, but… when dealing with cancer, any bit of optimism or even a placebo can still provide a benefit. Sorry to that he and your family are going through this.

    I am sorry about your father and I sent a powerful prayer to him.
    Pain: Different types of C-pain (Chemo, Radiation, surgeries, immune-system crash, neuropathy, etc, etc, etc). You might try Gabapentin and/or Pregabalin/Lyrica + Norco-5/10 etc.... Good luck, prayers sent! <3

    fwiw: My dog is literally crippled (arthritis), but currently doing Super well (no signs of previous crippling) on meds (Tramadol/Gabapentin/Dasquin/Rimadyl) + CBD K9 pills

    I've been using a Joovv light panel like in the pic below for about 4 years, its just part of my regular daily morning routine now. Get out of bed, make coffee stand in front of it 10 minutes then turn around and 10 minutes to the back. I don't have any chronic pain to speak of, but upon researching all the benefits of red light therapy we'll see how things pan out in the long run. I don't look at it as something that you use for immediate pain relief, but more of a cumulative therapy over time (.i.e. better skin and join, improved recovery from working out, etc etc).

    My take, 99.99% of alternative cancer healing promises are fake. LED's are just another scam in a long line of scams aimed at fleecing desperate and grieving people.

    Also, didn't the red sun make Superman loose his powers? Maybe it isn't all its cracked up to be.

    I am seeing a 'Paleo' (Pain) Doctor specialist, after all else failed over a 14-month torture camp. That is what I would recommend, if no meds are working, a Pain Dr Specialist.
    Good luck to your father <3 and you/sister

    And you know this because you’ve read how many studies on it?
