Photizo Sport is a simple-to-use, rechargeable home care pain relief and natural healing tool with high output red and infrared LEDs to accelerate healing, reduce swelling and inflammation and minimise scar tissue formation throughout the rehabilitation process. The specific pre-programmed highly effective 31 second dose allows for quicker recovery following injury and ideal for use on all acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries including sports injuries to allow athletes of all levels to return to training much faster.
Types of conditions treatable include muscle, tendon, ligaments, cartilage, joint & bone bruising, stress fractures, runners knee, shin splints, tennis and golfers elbow, deep bruising and haematomas, plantar fasciitis plus many more.
Photizo Sport helps to reduce muscle spasms, increases the blood and lymph vessel diameter, to ensure clearing of waste products and inflow of oxygen and nutrients in the areas treated.
Photizo Sport comes with a charger, protective carry bag and an easy to follow User Guide with step by step instructions of how to use the device correctly for each type of condition.
Photizo Sport relieves pain and stimulates cells to repair and heal, reducing swelling and inflammation. The specific pre-programmed 31 second dose is ideal for use in acute and overuse musculoskeletal injuries including conditions associated with sports enthusiasts and elite athletes such as:
- Muscle, tendon, ligament injuries including back and neck
- Bone bruising, stress fractures and joint/cartilage injuries
- Runners knee, shin splints, tennis and golfers elbow
- Deep bruising and haematomas
- Plantar fasciitis and other conditions where inflammation is present
- Skin breaks, cuts, abrasions, irritations, blisters and insect bites
Photizo Sport stimulates healing, relieves pain, swelling and inflammation, reduces muscle spasms, and increases the blood and lymph vessel diameter to ensure clearing of waste products and inflow of oxygen and nutrients in the areas treated.
How does the Photizo Sport assist in alleviating sport injuries?
Photizo Sport stimulates the energy production (ATP) inside the cell, thereby stimulating the cells to function at optimum levels. It further stimulates and regulates the DNA and RNA synthesis – the programs inside the cell – to follow the correct healing process, and regulates scar tissue formation. This speeds up the natural healing process by up to 30-40%, and reduces the likelihood of excess scar tissue formation and complications. Photizo Sport stimulates endorphin and serotonin secretion. This is the body’s own pain relief and relaxing “medication”. Photizo Sport effectively reduces the inflammatory process that is caused by damage, injury or overuse and reduces muscle spasms and trigger points. Photizo Sport assists in reducing swelling by increasing the blood vessel and lymph diameter to clear excess waste products from the injured or inflamed area. This reduces the pressure and irritation on nerve endings that are causing pain, and increases blood flow into the area, ensuring that the tissues can absorb more nutrients and oxygen. Photizo Sport stimulates optimum cell condition (bone, nerve, capsule, cartilage and muscle tissue) to maintain healthy tissue. This may help to prevent degeneration of bone and tissues like nerves, joints and blood vessels.
The healing phases of tissue occur in 3 phases, namely the inflammation, proliferation and organization phase. Chronic “injuries” or overuse inflammations occur when the tissue does not complete this cycle. The tissue stays in the inflammatory phase and does not progress into the proliferation (actual healing of cells and tissues) or organization phase. For these “injuries” to heal, the body needs stimulation of the cell’s programs (DNA and RNA), e.g. finalize the inflammation phase and move onto the real healing phase. When the inflammation process organizes into scar tissue formation, it causes adhesions that inhibit the normal “gliding” of muscle and tissue fibers, causing irritation and further inflammation, turning into a vicious circle. Photizo Sport will relieve muscle spasms, reduce the inflammatory processes and relieve pain, thereby breaking the circle to give the tissue the opportunity to start the healing process if possible, or in chronic conditions, maintain pain free periods. Please note that treatment with the Photizo Sport will not permanently break down the adhesions/scar tissue, but will control the inflammatory processes and discomfort, and reduce the risk of more scar tissue formation. Users have reported that regular Photizo application over existing scar tissue will improve flexibility and elasticity to help reduce risk of further issues associated with scar tissue formation.
Always treat directly when the problem starts as this will help prevent chronic problems. Chronic muscle spasms and trigger points are usually the result of longstanding overuse of the muscle groups, preventing the clearing of waste products and inflow of nutrients and oxygen. Most often, muscle spasms are found in the shoulder, neck and upper and lower back areas.
Photizo Sport comes with a mains charger, protective carry bag and an easy to follow User Guide with step by step instructions of how to use the device correctly for each type of condition. Approximately 1hr 30mins of treatment time is provided from a fully charged battery.
