Anodyne Light Therapy
What is Anodyne?
Anodyne is a treatment that uses light energy, which dramatically increases circulation in the area to which
it is applied. Light-emitting diodes are fitted into flexible pads that can be applied directly to the skin on any affected
part of the body. The light energy helps increase blood flow by delivering healing cells and nutrients to the injured site.
How does Anodyne therapy work?
Anodyne therapy consists of 10 to 12 sessions lasting 30 minutes each. During this time, energy is penetrating
your tissues increasing circulation up to 400 percent. It is this increase in circulation that results in relief of pain and
rapid wound healing.
Nitric Oxide is the key
Light energy helps your body release a gas called Nitric Oxide from your own red blood cells. Three scientists
received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1998 for their discoveries surrounding Nitric Oxide and its effect on
the cardiovascular system (Furchgott, Ignarro, and Murad). This powerful molecule plays a critical role in the health of your
arteries; Anodyne increases its production resulting in pain relief and improved circulation. To learn more about Nitric Oxide

Anodyne for Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy – are you experiencing loss of sensation, loss of
balance, chronic pain, or loss of feeling in your extremities?
Before experiencing wounds or diabetic ulcers, patients affected by diabetic peripheral neuropathy suffer
from loss of sensation, loss of balance, chronic pain, or loss of feeling in their extremities. This is of particular concern
for health care providers because patients cannot identify (or sometimes feel) the source of the problem; therefore, often
recognize the symptoms when they have progressed and circulation is severely compromised. Wounds or diabetic ulcers left untreated
can lead to amputations. Once serious complications manifest, an approach to treatment may involve the surgical placement
of stents and the use of prescription drugs. Anodyne offers a new alternative. It is a therapy that can be used to intervene
at the early stages of disease in order to prevent the more serious complications. Depending on the severity of the disease
Anodyne may or may not be used in conjunction with prescription drugs. For those needing prescription drugs in conjunction
with Anodyne for their neuropathy treatment, at EMMC the long-term goal is to reduce their list of medications and to place
them on alternative natural options. To learn more about our recommended natural options, read our L-Arginine and Vitamin
D sections located on our website cover.
Anodyne for Chronic Pain & Poor circulation
If you suffer from any condition distinguished by pain and inflammation or a condition characterized by poor
circulation, anodyne provides a painless, non - invasive treatment option for you.
Anodyne is often associated with the treatment of diabetic complications such as neuropathy, but its benefits
extend far beyond. Our clinic sees compelling results for a variety of other conditions ranging from:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (loss of sensation or feeling)
- Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorders (“TMJ”)
- Slow healing wounds
- Diabetic ulcers
- Stress Fractures
“I spend less time laying down and staying off my feet and more time getting out and walking again.”
“My feet had a burning feeling and I couldn’t be on them more than 10 – 15 minutes. It has also done wonders
for my lower back, legs, and ankles.”
“I use to get ulcers that would not heal. With Anodyne treatments my ulcer is getting smaller and my
wound is slowly healing. It is getting easier to get around and I also feel better all around.”
“I had arthroscopic knee surgery followed by severe bruising and swelling; I could barely walk and had
many sleepless nights due to the pain. After my first treatment I was able to slowly walk, bend my knee, feel less pain, and
couldn’t wait for the next treatment.”
