Pain and inflammation can disrupt your daily life, and we proudly offer innovative solutions like Far-Infrared Heat Therapy (FIR) to help you find relief and promote healing. This natural and non-invasive method benefits a wide range of individuals when part of a care plan.


What Is Far-Infrared Heat Therapy?

FIR therapy is a cutting-edge approach to pain and inflammation management. It harnesses the power of infrared light to provide superior pain relief. Unlike traditional therapies, this treatment can penetrate deep into the skin, reaching muscle and soft tissues. Safe, natural, non-invasive, and painless, it’s a versatile option for individuals seeking an alternative to traditional methods.

FIR therapy improves blood circulation, enhancing the flow of oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues and promoting the body’s natural healing processes. It effectively eases pain, reduces inflammation, and shields against oxidative stress. FIR light also stimulates cell regeneration, a crucial aspect of the healing journey.

One notable benefit of FIR therapy is its ability to expand capillaries, naturally improving blood circulation, and this increased blood supply accelerates soft-tissue repair and reduces muscle pain. Studies conducted by the NIH (National Institute of Health) and Mayo Clinic support the effectiveness of this treatment.

Conditions That May Benefit

At our practice, we use FIR therapy for a variety of situations, including:

  • Acute pain—relieves muscle strains, soft tissue sprains, disc inflammation, and acute arthritis
  • Chronic pain—provides ongoing relief for conditions like chronic arthritis, joint pain, radiculopathy, stenosis, or neuropathy
  • As part of a comprehensive care plan—we may recommend FIR as an adjunct to our chiropractic and spinal decompression care as part of our holistic approach to overall well-being

Experience Pain Relief and Healing

Patients often notice improvement after their first FIR therapy session, although the most effective results are achieved through a series of visits tailored to your unique care plan. Relief is typically felt within minutes, and the therapy is applied using a large pad that can cover the entire area of concern.

While this therapy is generally safe and effective, there are some restrictions. Individuals with cancer and recent fractures should avoid this therapy. We prioritize your safety and will assess your suitability during the consultation.

Maintaining Your Well-Being

FIR isn’t just for treating pain; it’s also about maintaining your best performance and feeling good. We incorporate this treatment into our care plans to ensure you have the support you need for ongoing well-being. It’s not about a set number of visits; it’s about offering you a comprehensive and proactive approach to health.

At Holmes Chiropractic, our commitment to providing more than just traditional chiropractic care sets us apart from other practices. We believe in offering you the tools and therapies necessary to totally support your healing journey.
