Red light therapy can reach deeper tissues and muscles. Infrared light, a type of red light therapy, uses longer wavelengths (from about 700nm to 1mm) which can penetrate deeper into the body. This allows it to reach tissues, muscles, bones, and even cells, making it a popular choice for treating muscle pain, joint pain, inflammation, and injuries.
