Pain is the unpleasant sensation associated with actual or potential injury. Pain occurring after tissue injury has a protective role, alerting the body to damage and inducing rest to allow tissue regeneration. In chronic persistent pain this physiological function may be compromised. The pathophysiology of pain involves alteration of pain-transmission pathways. Knowledge of the normal physiology of these pathways is essential to understanding the mechanisms of both acute and chronic pain (16)

Pain Relief and Sports Injuries

With Dr Michael McNamara



Thanks to the ability of BIOPTRON Light Therapy to penetrate into tissue it is a suitable treatment for use in Rheumatology, Sports Medicine and Physiotherapy. It has been reported that significant pain reduction in chronic pain conditions (rheumatoid arthritis, shoulder and neck pain) has been achieved.

In all these instances light therapy can help relieve pain and improve function. Very good result's have been achieved in combination with standard treatment methods. BIOPTRON Light Therapy is ideally suited as a complementary treatment in rehabilitation. Combined with standard massage and physiotherapy procedures it can be successfully used as an integral part of procedures for sports injuries, ankle and knee injuries, shoulder and elbow problems along with stretched tendons and bruises.

Musculoskeletal pain can be caused by inflammation, degeneration or trauma to skeletal or myofacial tissues. Recent research in the field showed that BIOPTRON Light Therapy could be used to provide temporary relief of minor chronic and shoulder pain.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy can be used as a stand alone therapy of combined with other treatment approaches in the treatment of:

Rheumatism - osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and arthroses

Physiotherapy - in treating low back pain, shoulder and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, scar tissue and musculoskeletal injuries

Sports Medicine - soft tissue injuries to muscles, tendons and ligaments - muscle spasm, sprains, strains, tendonitis, ligament and muscle tears, dislocations, contusions and tennis elbow

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Phototherapy can be an effective treatment for reliving pain and improving the quality of life for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (19, 20)

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease with persistent inflammation or of joints causing breakdown of cartilage's bone erosion and resulting permanent joint deformity.

In specialist centres BIOPTRON Light Therapy has become part of the standard therapy programme. In additional BIOPTRON Light Therapy has been used for patient use at home.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy helps to:

- Receive pain and decrease intensity

- Strengthen muscles and increase body motion

- Increasing walking distance and speed

- Improve quality of sleep


Back shoulder and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, scar tissue and musculoskeletal injuries.

Back pain is one of the most common conditions resulting in stopping people from enjoying a normal life as well as costs to business with millions of lost working days.

BIOPTRON Light Therapy is a powerful therapeutic tool in the treatment of back pain (15)

BIOPTRON Light Therapy helps to:

- Relieve pain and muscle tightness

- Improve blood flow to tissues

- Reduce swelling

- Speed up regenerative processes

BIOPTRON Light Therapy is also an integral part of both physical therapy and rehabilitation programmes.


The success of light therapy pain management is due to a number of mechanisms, one of which may through its positive effect on chondrocyte proliferation and matrix's synthesis. Also, significant stimulatory effect on fibroblast action and enhanced connective tissue repair have been noted in extensive research. These effects are related to the biostimulative effect of light therapy at the cellular level. Normalisation of microcirculation and speed of nerve transmission have been reported to interrupt the vicious circle in relation to the origin and development of both acute and chronic pain.

Dr. Miroslav Gašpar, (pictured below), is a specialist in physiotherapy, balneology and medical rehabilitation. He believes BIOPTRON Medical Light Therapy can treat acute to chronic injuries and confirms that in the field of physiotherapy, balneology, medical rehabilitation and pain management, BIOPTRON can treat virtually any diagnosis. "The most treated injuries are musculoskeletal disorders, which include degenerative processes of joints, acute and chronic pains of tendons and tendon insertions and rheumatic diseases. It is literally an epidemic of spine diseases, for which we also use light therapy. In our clinic we treat a large group of injuries and neurological diseases. Treatment of inflammation leads to treatment and relief of pain and at the same time bio-stimulating effect results in significantly faster wound healing due to increased production of collagen", Dr. Gašpar said.

Just ask Ristic Srdjan, (pictured below), Serbian International VolleyBall player. Srdjan tore his ACL in 2014: "After the operation, I had a big scar, haematoma and was very painful. I started using BIOPTRON 10 minutes in the morning and with the indigo colour filter 10 minutes in the evening directly on the painful area. BIOPTRON accelerated the resolution of the haematoma, and accelerated scar repair. There was also restoration of function and recovery of muscle power. I continue to use BIOPTRON every day for prevention and have found that I have suffered far fewer injuries since using it".



We continue our Olympic theme and are delighted to bring you the story of Serbian middle distance runner Vera Nikolic, who competed at the 1968 and 1972 Olympics, (World Record 800m, July 1968).
