FIR saunas can be used to deliver whole body or indirect therapy while far infrared heating pads, clothing and bedding supplies may be used for localized applications. Each of these types of FIR therapy uses different means to produce far infrared heat. Far infrared saunas use carbon/ceramic heaters to generate indirect heat in the form of low. Relaxation: studies have shown that having a sauna session actually decreases the cortisol (known as the stress chemical) in your brain and increases the serotonin levels. Detoxification: one session detoxifies 7x more than traditional saunas; detoxifies heavy metals, and environmental toxins. Pain Relief: Infrared heat penetrates tissues, joints, muscles, and bones Location: 26 East Main Street Chattanooga, TN, United States.

CHAPTER 2 Pre and Post Uses of Medical Radiation, and Its Therapeutic and Interventional Uses In medicine, a journal entitled Archives of Clinical Skiagraphy made its from low to progressively higher energy, there are radio waves, microwaves, infra-red heat waves, visible light, ultra-violet light, xrays, and gamma rays.   Luminous Infra Red: • The passage of an electric current through the filament produces heat, Infra red, visible and few Ultra violet rays. 12/2/ 13 • The spectrum is from nm • The greatest proportion of the rays having the wavelength the region of nm 12/2/ 14

Far-infrared rays (FIR), first explored by NASA scientists, have since captured the interest of the medical community. In clinics and laboratories all over the world, medical practitioners and researchers have tested the effects of FIR on a wide range of conditions. Research Confirms Diverse Healing Effects of Far Infrared Light. A growing body of clinical evidence supports the use of far infrared as a non-invasive health-promoting therapy. As far back as , researchers found convincing evidence that when far infrared was applied to local areas or to the entire body, it had a sleep-modulatory effect on patients suffering from : Stephen Laifer.

Infrared physiotherapy uses infrared rays to give treatment for many kinds of musculoskeletal pain like joint pain, muscle spasm, etc. It is part of electrotherapy in which electric current is used to illuminate the therapeutic infrared lamp for treatment purposes.

However, its working principle is different from other heating agents in electrotherapy such as short wave. Cutaneous effects and therapeutic uses of heat with emphasis on infrared radiation.

Comment in J Am Acad Dermatol. Mar;22(3)Cited by: Natural infrared. Sunlight, at an effective temperature of kelvins ( °C, °F), is composed of near-thermal-spectrum radiation that is slightly more than half infrared.

At zenith, sunlight provides an irradiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy, watts is infrared radiation, watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet.

The infra-red part of the spectrum may be divided into nine octaves. Water is transparent to the first octave (µ µ), glass is transparent to the first and also to the second octave (, µ-3 µ), and fluorite is transparent to the first, second and also the third (3 µ-6 µ). Only rock salt allows the passage of the fourth octave (6 µ µ).Author: J.

Infrared Rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of the human physical body, penetrating into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles and bone. An ancient technique, Far Infrared Therapy uses these waves, or rays, of energy to slightly elevate the surface temperature of the body.

Other electromagnetic waves include radio, microwaves, visible light, ultraviolet, x-rays, and gamma rays, but electromagnetic waves that are between.

Therapeutic Effects and Indications Mild heating 'sedatory' effect relief of acute pain Strong heating counter irritant' relief of chronic pain. 2-Prior to other Treatments: (e.g. stretching, mobilization, traction, massage, exercise therapy, electrical stimulation, and biofeedback).File Size: 1MB.

Infrared radiations are also referred to as heat or thermal waves or electromagnetic waves. This is because they have a heat-inducing property.

Sometimes infrared rays are used in applications where heat production is required like in infrared heaters or for therapeutic purposes where a patient requires physical therapy.

the physics behind the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of heat and colds is that it brings real images and is more cost effective for the patient.

John Kellogg and incandescent lamp therapy (): The therapeutic use of red light is not a new phenomenon. The very earliest reports on the topic have been published in the 19th century, the most well-known article being The Red Light Treatment of Small-Pox () by Niels Finsen, who also got the Nobel Prize in medicine, for his research regarding the Author: Vladimir Heiskanen (Valtsu).

Infrared therapy is a method that uses light to treat acute or chronic pain. It is a simple and painless therapy that is being studied for use in various fields of medicine. In some ways you could look at infrared radiation therapy as a way to receive many of the benefits of natural sunlight without risking exposure to any of the dangerous effects associated with solar radiation, including those related to ultraviolet rays.

A number of therapeutic benefits have been linked to infrared radiation, and some of them. XVIII pl. ill.
