Application of polarized, polychromatic, incoherent and low energy light in physiotherapeutic practice

Zhenya Ruseva, Mariyana Mihajlova


Introduction: The use of natural light as a healing method has been observed as early as in ancient Egypt and was used by the father of medicine Hypocrites. In recent years a lot of light sources with different characteristics and capabilities have made their way into physiotherapeutic practice. One of them is Bioptron apparatus that generates polarized, polychromatic, incoherent and low-energy light.

Purpose: To present the capabilities of polarized polychromatic incoherent low energetic light as a treatment of illnesses commonly encountered by physiotherapist.

Materials and Method: Analysis of literature

Results: The polychromatic polarized light emitted by Bioptron apparatus is a reliable and easily applicable conservative treatment, used frequently in the physiotherapy practice. The convincing results about the effectives of the method gathered by a number of clinical studies together have given us the confidence to recommend Bioptron apparatus to be used in the general physiotherapeutic practice.

Conclusion: The high therapeutic effectiveness, the noninvasive approach and the lack of side effects, makes Bioptron apparatus suitable to be recommended for wide adoption not only as way of prophylaxis but also as a treatment for a number of illnesses commonly encountered by physiotherapists.
