Improve Menstrual Cramps with RLT: What You Need To Know

Medically reviewed by Dr. Lauren Weber

Menstrual cramps, scientifically known as dysmenorrhea, are a discomfort experienced by countless individuals during or right before their menstrual cycles. These cramps can range from mild to debilitating, often disrupting daily activities and causing significant pain.

Deeply Vital Medical introduces a groundbreaking solution: Red Light Therapy (RLT) to alleviate menstrual cramps and provide relief without relying solely on pain medication. In this article, we will delve into the world of RLT and its potential to transform how to manage menstrual discomfort, providing a natural, non-invasive alternative.

Understanding Menstrual Cramps

Menstrual cramps occur when the muscle of the uterus contracts to help shed its lining during menstruation. These contractions can cause pain and discomfort, with symptoms such as lower abdominal pain, backache, nausea, and fatigue.

Two categories of dysmenorrhea, primary and secondary, are distinguished by the absence or presence of an underlying cause. Primary dysmenorrhea occurs independently of any associated underlying condition, while secondary dysmenorrhea is linked to a specific underlying cause.

The onset of primary dysmenorrhea is characterized by painful menstrual cramps resulting from an excess release of prostaglandins from the uterus. Prostaglandins induce the tightening and relaxation of uterine muscles, leading to menstrual cramps. This type of dysmenorrhea typically commences in the teenage years, shortly after the first menstrual period.

On the other hand, secondary dysmenorrhea is attributed to various conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, uterine adenomyosis, and polycystic ovary syndrome. In rare instances, congenital abnormalities, intrauterine devices, certain cancers, and pelvic infections can also give rise to secondary dysmenorrhea.

While over-the-counter pain relievers are commonly used to manage these symptoms, many seek alternatives to reduce reliance on medication and to minimize potential side effects.

Enter Red Light Therapy (RLT)

Red Light Therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation, is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of Red and Near-Infrared Light to stimulate the natural healing processes in the body. RLT has gained recognition for its potential to address various health issues, including pain management and inflammation reduction.

How RLT Works for Menstrual Cramp Relief

For individuals who experience the monthly discomfort of menstrual cramps, the pursuit of practical and non-invasive relief is a top priority. Red Light Therapy (RLT) is an innovative approach that promises to transform the experience of menstrual cramp relief. 

In this section, we will learn how RLT works its magic on menstrual cramps, offering an insight into the science behind its effectiveness. By understanding the underlying principles of RLT, you can gain a deeper appreciation for its potential to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with menstruation, making each cycle a more manageable and empowering experience. 

Increased Blood Circulation and Oxygenation

One of the fundamental mechanisms through which Red Light Therapy (RLT) offers relief from menstrual cramps is by enhancing blood circulation to the uterus. During menstruation, the uterus undergoes contractions to assist with the shedding of its lining. These contractions can often lead to muscle tension, resulting in discomfort. RLT, with its specific wavelengths of Red and Near-Infrared Light, acts as a catalyst for improved blood flow, helping oxygenate cells.  

Reduced Inflammation

Inflammation is a central player in the pain experienced during menstruation. The therapeutic Light used in RLT works harmoniously with the body’s natural healing processes. It stimulates the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines within the cells of the treated area. This, in turn, plays a pivotal role in reducing the inflammation responsible for menstrual pain. By mitigating the inflammatory response, RLT helps manage discomfort and contributes to a sense of relief and well-being during your menstrual cycle.

Decreased Prostaglandins

Painful menstrual cramps can result from an excess of prostaglandins released from the uterus. Prostaglandins cause the uterine muscles to tighten and relax, causing menstrual cramps. RLT helps to lower prostaglandins, leading to less discomfort. 

Muscle Relaxation

Menstrual cramps are the result of uterine contractions, which can sometimes become excessively intense, causing significant pain. RLT offers an innovative solution by promoting muscle relaxation. The application of Red and Near-Infrared Light encourages the muscles involved in these contractions to ease their tension. 

This relaxation alleviates discomfort and contributes to a more manageable and less painful menstrual experience. The gentle, low-risk, and non-invasive nature of RLT makes it a valuable alternative to conventional pain relief methods.

Endorphin Release

Endorphins, often referred to as the body’s natural painkillers, play a pivotal role in managing discomfort associated with menstrual cramps. Red Light Therapy has been found to prompt the release of endorphins. 

When exposed to the therapeutic Light, the body responds by increasing the production and release of these naturally occurring compounds. This surge in endorphins can significantly boost pain relief during menstruation. It acts as a pain buffer and can contribute to overall well-being, offering a more positive and comfortable menstrual experience for those seeking relief.
