A collection of light therapy research articles on the benefits of light therapy use for Fibromyalgia.
NOTE: Researchers use several terms to describe “light therapy”. Photobiomodulation, low level light therapy (LLLT), phototherapy, photon therapy, photo energy, heliotherapy, and sometimes red, blue or (near) infrared radiation are synonymous; they all refer to light therapy.
Fibromyalgia – Sleep, pain, and overall quality of life can be improved
This study presents a simple protocol that can potentially help many sufferers from fibromyalgia. The protocol consists of a 4 week program where light therapy is applied 3 times per week and each application is followed by 50 minutes of exercise, consisting of 10 minutes of stretching, 30 minutes of aerobic activity, and another 10 minutes of stretching/muscle relaxing. Look forward to a double-blind randomized controlled trial that will be carried out at the Sleep Study Laboratory of the Post Graduate Program in Rehabilitation Sciences of the Nove de Julho University (UNINOVE) and the UNINOVE Integrated Health Center, located in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
