What Fibromyalgia locks away
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition with limited treatment options. Patients are often told “there is nothing wrong”, despite many expensive tests, x-rays and MRIs. Symptoms include widespread body pain, fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Fibromyalgia arises from abnormal pain processing in the brain and spinal cord where typically non-painful sensations are interpreted as being painful. Fibromyalgia is also known as “centralised” pain.
SYMBYX Infrared lasers are CE marked/ARTG-listed for reducing Fibromyalgia symptoms.
History of Light Therapy
In 1903, the Nobel Prize in medicine was awarded to Danish Physician, Niels Ryberg Finsen, for his work in treating Smallpox and Tuberculosis with light.
Further interest in the field was pioneered by Professor Endre Mester, a Hungarian physician and scientist, who in 1967 successfully used light to heal wounds and regrow hair in mice and people.
NASA also experimented frequently with light in the 1970's and 1980's and successfully used LED light to grow flowers in space.Today, light is used to pre-prime patients prior to surgery (including cardiovascular surgery) as well as for several neurodegenerative disorders.
light therapy for FIBROMYALGIA
SYMBYX lasers are a safe, drug-free and painless treatment option for Fibromyalgia sufferers, making it a popular choice. Positive effects are believed to occur locally to the pain site, but also systemically around the body. Research has shown that people using laser therapy also note an improvement in anxiety, depression, fatigue, morning stiffness and sleep quality (Moreira da Silva et al, 2017).
How exactly does SYMBYX Infrared Laser therapy ease Fibromyalgia pain?
1. Increased cellular energy (ATP) production. ATP or Adenosine Triphosphate is the energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things. When infrared light at the correct dosage is shone over a painful area, the cell’s mitochondria produce more ATP. This ATP decreases pain, and promotes healing and repair.
2. Reduced inflammation. Infrared light stimulates an increase in cAMP, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory. cAMP inhibits TNF (Tumour Necrosis Factor), which is elevated in Fibromyalgia sufferers, and contributes to their pain and inflammation levels.
3. Reduced oxidative stress and improved circulation. Nitric oxide (NO) levels are decreased in Fibromyalgia sufferers, and are believed to play an important role in the onset of the condition (Ozgocmen et al., 2006). Laser therapy increases nitric oxide, which also promotes circulation, nervous system regulation and decreases pain.

Managing Flare-Ups in Fibromyalgia
While Fibromyalgia is a chronic but not progressive condition (meaning that it does not get worse as time passes), flare-ups do occur. A Fibromyalgia flare-up is a temporary increase in the number and/or intensity of symptoms. Some flare-ups last for a day or two but others may continue for several weeks or even months. Infrared laser therapy is painless, making it a popular treatment option during acute flare-ups.
SYMBYX Fibromyalgia Protocol
For treating Fibromyalgia focus your laser treatment on the three most painful areas of your body. For example, that might be shoulder, neck and wrist pain; or shoulder, neck and lower back pain; or leg pain, inside knee and on the hip. We understand that these top 3 most painful points may vary by day, week or separate flare up event, or you may have pain in 1 or 2 areas only.

"I have been using PhysioCare for over 2 months for fibromyalgia. I have noticed an improvement in aching/tenderness in my neck, shoulders and elbows. I use the PhysioCare laser device every day or so and after a couple of weeks of using it I noticed that my aching/pain had really improved. I prefer using the PhysioCare as a drug free alternative. My rheumatologist and GP prescribed medication which I am reluctant to take as a lifelong treatment option. I had a recent flare up in my hip and noticed after using PhysioCare an immediate improvement - as it didn’t feel as painful. Overall it has helped me manage my fibromyalgia symptoms much better than taking pain relief.”

RESEARCH SUPPORTING LIGHT THERAPY IN FIBROMYALGIA
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition with limited treatment options. Patients are often told “there is nothing wrong”, despite many expensive tests, x-rays and MRIs. A flare up often starts with instant exhaustion, and can be accompanied by interrupted sleep, muscle soreness and pain in joints - and may last a few days or longer.
Treatment is painless and easy to self administer in the comfort of your own home. Having a personal medical grade laser device, like the PDCare Laser, makes the treatment super convenient in the comfort of your own home when flare ups occur.
Our PDCare Laser is made in Sweden, comes with a 2 year warranty, money back guarantee, and is ARTG and CE approved for managing symptoms of fibromyalgia.
