Use an Infrared Lamp

Infrared light has a longer wavelength than red light and can therefore penetrate deeper in to the shoulder joint.  It also generates more heat.  However, it does not stimulate ATP production as well as regular red light, so it is best to use both.

After applying your TendLite red light therapy, use a TDP infrared  lamp over your shoulder joint.    Sit in a comfortable chair and point the lamp’s head at the top-front of your affected shoulder, about 9″ away.  Set the timer for 20 minutes.

The deep-penetrating heat increases blood flow to your shoulder joint, which results in more oxygen and nutrient delivery.
