Anodyne® Therapy Systems are infrared light therapy devices that have been clinically proven to reduce the discomfort of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and idiopathic peripheral neuropathy (PN) symptoms by stimulating circulation and improving sensation to the nerves in the extremities. Learn more about Infrared Light Therapy - click here.


Through a patented mechanism of action - the Anodyne® Therapy System emits infrared light out of super luminous light emitting diodes. This wavelength of light is absorbed into the tissues and blood vessels of the body and causes blood vessels to relax. This light also it triggers the release of nitric oxide, a natural pain killer, into the blood.


Exceptional clinical outcomes have been documented in over 21 published peer reviewed studies - of which - 9 are directly related to neuropathy and reduction of neuropathic symptoms. Review our clinical research and learn in more detail about the mechanism of action of Anodyne Therapy - click here.


Just as pain medications are a treatment - not a cure for chronic pain - Anodyne® Therapy is a treatment that must be continued for ongoing symptomatic relief.



Anodyne® Therapy is approved by Health Canada for:
Temporarily reducing disturbances of skin sensation due to diabetic and other peripheral neuropathies.
Used adjunctively with physical therapy, temporarily increases balance and fall risk of patients with diabetic and other peripheral neuropathies.

Temporarily increases local circulation and reduces pain.

Safety and Precautions


Anodyne® Therapy may be used over or near:
Anodyne® Therapy may NOT be used over or near:
Any part of the body - including the spine
Active cancerous tumors
Metal implants, plates, pins and screws
The womb during pregnancy
Topical heating or cooling agents, or their residuals
Pain patches, or their residuals



Anodyne® Therapy has no known drug interactions or side-effects. However, please review these precautions:
Anodyne® Therapy is an infrared-thermal modality, and thus, there is a slight risk of a superficial burn.
When treating patients with circulatory compromise and peripheral neuropathy: Sometimes there is a slight increase in tingling or burning initially as blood flow increases. This typically resolves within the first 6-8 treatments.
When treating patients with with diabetes: advise patients to monitor blood sugars more regularly IF you are also increasing activity levels.

Important Notes:


Anodyne® Infrared Therapy systems are a neuropathy treatment and ARE NOT a cure for neuropathy. Chronic conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, will require ongoing use of a home system to provide patient long-term symptomatic relief.


Tight blood glucose control and excercise can prolong periods of relief - however - in general - patients will need follow up treatments or to purchase a system for in-home use.

Anodyne® Infrared Therapy should generally be provided along with other skilled therapy interventions that are needed to improve function based on the patient’s assessment and personal goals.
Some patients feel pain relief in the first treatment, while others need 6 or more treatments to feel improvement. Generally speaking, if patients have not felt some improvement within 12 treatments, infrared therapy may not be effective for their condition.
Longer standing conditions may require more frequent treatments and/or longer duration than 4 weeks.
