How Anodyne Therapy Works

The patented treatment method of Anodyne® Therapy Systems causes blood vessels (arteries and veins) to temporarily dilate – thus increasing local circulation, and reducing pain, stiffness and muscle spasm.

Pain can have many underlying causes or etiologies – which is why it is sometimes very hard to treat. Common causes of pain are:

Lack of blood flow/ poor circulation (ischemia)
Nerve impingement due to inflammation or soft tissue swelling
Mechanical issues due to trauma, injury, or degeneration

Your blood delivers necessary substances – such as oxygen and nutrients – to the cells of your body; and also transports waste products away from those same cells.  Injuries and trauma cause inflammation, making it difficult for blood to reach an injured site in the body.

Additionally, some conditions such as diabetes, vascular disease (PVD and PAD), hypertension, and atherosclerosis contribute to blood vessel narrowing - causing pain.

For patients with the aforementioned conditions, vessel constriction often presents first in areas of the body with the smallest blood vessels such as arms, hands, feet and legs – and can escalate to areas such as the digestive track, kidneys – and heart.

By increasing local circulation, Anodyne® treatments address the underlying cause of many types of pain - poor circulation. Pain medications may only further mask symptoms, and many people can not tolerate their side-effects.

According to published clinical data on the Anodyne® Infrared Therapy System, 51% of patients were actually able to reduce or eliminate their use of pain medications!

Treatments with Anodyne® Therapy Systems have been documented to increase local circulation up to 1300%. The photographs below show changes in circulation to the feet after only 20 minutes of treatment.
