Light Energy for Pain Relief

Arthritis and the aches and pains that are associated with it, affects millions of people of all ages worldwide. LightStim for Pain emits light energy that reduces inflammation and boosts the production of nitric oxide which increases blood circulation.

​The increased circulation accelerates the body’s healing process by delivering oxygen and nutrients to tissues for regeneration, whilst the reduced inflammation helps to relieve pain naturally.

LightStim for Pain is proven to temporarily relieve minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness, minor arthritic pain and muscle spasms, the temporary increase in local blood circulation, and the temporary relaxation of muscles.

Clinically Proven​​​​ Studies:

In numerous clinical studies, Red and Infrared LED light therapy has been proven to be an effective treatment for the temporary relief of pain with no negative side effects.

​Infrared therapy for chronic low back pain: A randomized, controlled trial.


To assess the degree of pain relief obtained by applying infrared light energy to the low back in patients with chronic, intractable low back pain.


The mean NRS scores in the treatment group fell from 6.9 of 10 to 3 of 10 at the completion of the study.


The IR therapy unit used was demonstrated to be effective in reducing chronic low back pain, and no adverse side effects were observed.

Why different colors?

Different light waves penetrate the skin and tissue to different depths. The depth depends on the length of the light wave.

The Red light (660-630) used are for treating shallower tissues, joints and tendons. Suitable for smaller joints like wrists and fingers.

The infrared lights (855-940nm) produced are effective in reaching deeper into the tissues and joints. The red and infrared light warms the tissues to increase blood circulation through the treatment area. This aids rapid relief of both pain and improvement in sensation. It also aids in the regeneration of damaged tissue.


For best results, the instructions suggest, to place the LightStim gently touching the skin and hold it in place for 5-30 minutes, until you achieve the desired effect of pain relief. Move the light to a new area, repeat as often as desired.

What We Like About The LightStim

  • ​ExpensiveWe like that LightStim have dedicated the whole LED array in red and infrared light to just one thing, healing and pain management.
  • ​Easy to operate, with an on/off switch. The different colored LEDs work together at the same time, so there is no need to change settings. It will appear half of the lights in the treatment head are not working, this is because the infrared spectrum of light the device uses is not visible.

What We Like Dont Like About The ​LightStim

  • ​It is corded, so you are not free to move around during treatment sessions. This is a negative when it comes to a pain management device.
  • ​It is hand-held, and holding it steadily against the skin for 5 minutes, can be tedious.

​LightStim Conclusion

The LightStim is easy to use and delivers clinically proven results. We like that it is FDA cleared, can be used at home, and is a pain free alternative for pain management.

​Although it is corded and not hands free, this is a minor issue due to  the extension cord. We rated the LightStim 4 stars for this very reason, as it is a quality product that works. When comparing the LightStim against other light therapy devices for home use, the company delivered.
