Is laser therapy the solution to chronic pain?

Photobiomodulation Therapy: How To Live PAIN-FREE + Increase Quality of Life Again (Kineon) | Forrest SmithForrest Smith, CEO and Co-Founder of Kineon Labs, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom podcast, episode 585, to share how photobiomodulation can revolutionize chronic pain healing, why chronic pain is a sign of inflammation, and how laser and red light therapy work for healing joint pain and damaged tissue.

If you've got a fire in your kitchen and the house is burning down, you have inflammation and pain in your joints. The pain is the signal, the sound coming from that fire alarm. The fire in the kitchen is the inflammation. And what we see people doing with with opiates and anti-inflammatory drugs, is taking the batteries out of the fire alarm so that they can't hear this anymore but the fire's still going.”Forrest Smith

Power Quotes From The Show

Tissue Damage Affects The Heart

“There was a 3,500 player study with the NFL players. 50% had ACL tears, 50% didn't. The 50% that had the ACL tears had a greater than 50% increase in severe cardiovascular disease. You have increased chronic inflammation in that joint almost forever after that traumatic tissue damage that you have with the injury and then the surgery. And it impacts and impairs your cardiovascular endothelial tissue.”Forrest Smith

Healthcare Is Actually Semi-Care

“The most profitable way to run a pharmaceutical company is to keep people in a state of semi-health, provide them some benefits, but never get them well. The pharmaceutical industry has spent billions of dollars developing different solutions that would keep people in that most profitable role of the commercialization, which is in semi-health and semi-sickness. That's the most valuable customer to have. What's not a valuable customer to have is somebody that you can provide preventative measures to.Forrest Smith

Inflammation Impacts Your Entire Body

“When you measure the temperature of the muscle above the unhealthy joint, it's 1 to 2 degrees colder than the one above the healthy joint. That's severely impacting the amount of oxygen and blood delivery to that tissue. Local inflammation impacts degrading tissue, tearing down your cartilage, making you have worse outcomes from a mobility standpoint. And then you go regional and you look at the muscle tissue and it's getting worse blood delivery, worse oxygen delivery. And you go systemic and you look at endothelial cardiovascular tissue and the sheer strength is dropping. This is something that's impacting you across all of these different parts of your body.”Forrest Smith

Movement + Mental Health

“When you can't or don't move, your joints just get worse and worse. And it's extremely highly correlated to depression, increased chronic anxiety, and a lot of neurological impacts because of lack of movement.”Forrest Smith
