On June 22, 2019, I began a 3 times per week, full-body Red and Near-Infrared Light Therapy (Photobiomodulation) treatment with a local chiropractor (Dr. Eric Bunge). My primary objective is relief of muscle pain, soreness and. inflammation which may be directly or indirectly related to my Parkinson’s condition. I am also aware of the group of PD sufferers in Australia who are experimenting with red light hats for treating PD symptoms, and am curious if I will see any effect on either PD or muscle pain/soreness. I am also aware of the power of the placebo effect. I will be sharing my thoughts and observations in a series of posts that I am calling “The Red Light District”.
The full body treatment that I am receiving uses 45,000 LEDs with a mix of the following wavelengths: 633nm red, 810nm infrared, 850nm infrared and 940nm infrared.
