Photizo® Sport relieves pain, stimulates cells to repair and heal, reduce swelling and inflammation, especially in acute and overuse injuries in the athlete. Photizo® Sport is effective in treating pain and inflammation associated with overuse injuries, e.g. runners knee, shin splints, tennis and golfers elbow etc. 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, up to 250X, 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 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 causes more 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 tissues, like nerves, bone/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 break down the adhesions, but will control the inflammatory processes and discomfort, and reduce the risk of more 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.
