Light Therapy Explained
Light therapy, also known as phototherapy uses a combination of super luminous (visible) and infra-red (invisible) light to treat damaged skin as well as problems with muscles, tendons, bones and ligaments. The treatment works by stimulating the blood supply in a targeted area; providing oxygen and nutrients to the damaged tissue. It also stimulates the lymphatic system enabling waste products to be removed more quickly.
It is well known that humans need light to maintain their mental and physical health. The effects of ‘lack of light’ is commonly known as SAD syndrome and light boxes are used in order to aid in the treatment of depression. Studies carried out on horses showed similar results.
Controlled experiences with stabled horses have shown that horses exposed to light therapy for 1 hour per day maintain their ability and attitude during darker months. This study was carried out by Nottingham University
