ANODYNE

What is Anodyne Therapy?

Anodyne Therapy System is a non-invasive, drug-free device that delivers infrared energy through infrared light-emitting diodes with a wavelength of 890 nm that are mounted in flexible therapy pads.

When the therapy pads are placed in direct contact with the skin, the invisible infrared light is absorbed by cells in the body and blood vessels begin to dilate, resulting in increased blood circulation in that area. Increased blood circulation stimulates healing and relieves pain.

Conditions for which Anodyne Therapy can be used

Anodyne Therapy is designed to utilize infrared lights for painful conditions or other conditions that may benefit from increase in blood circulation such as:

  • Arthritis / Osteoarthritis

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Circulatory Problems

  • Degenerative

  • Disc Disease

  • Epicondylitis

  • Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Facet Syndrome

  • Fractures / Wounds

  • Herniated

  • Disc

  • Loss of Sensation / Post Operation

  • Neck and Back Pain

  • Poor Gait and Balance

  • Stroke

  • Tendonitis / Bursitis

  • TMJ Syndrome

Are there any side-effects or cautions?
Anodyne Therapy has been used safely for over 12 years on thousands of patients. It should not be used directly over an active cancer or over the womb of a pregnant woman. With increased activities during therapy, patients should always monitor their blood sugars carefully. There are no known side effects or drug interactions, other than a very slight risk of a superficial burn if therapy protocols are not followed.

What is our approach to caring for patients with painful and circulatory problems?
Our comprehensive therapy program includes Anodyne Therapy with personalized therapeutic interventions which significantly impact the pain, numbness, and balance problems. The treatment plan usually involves 10 to 20 therapy sessions.

Based on patient’s need, our therapy may include any or all of the following interventions:

  • Anodyne Therapy to reduce pain and increase blood circulation

  • Stretching and strengthening exercises

  • Dynamic and static balance exercises

  • Massage and the use of other therapeutic modalities for pain

  • Sensory integrative techniques

Anodyne Therapy clinical studies
Anodyne Therapy is the only diode-based light therapy that has been clinically proven in numerous studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals.

A study with 784 patients published in the Journal of Neurological and Orthopedic Surgeons demonstrated that 88.8% treated with the Anodyne had excellent to total pain relief within twelve 40-minutes treatments.

A second study, which was accepted for publication in Age and Aging, purveyed 252 patients with diabetes who had experienced chronic foot and leg pain. After receiving Anodyne Therapy, 87% reported substantial reductions in their foot and leg pain.
