The Horizon Mini for Pain Management
The specific wavelengths of light within Horizon Mini are
medically proven to provide a drug-free, pain-free treat-
ment for pain and inflammation.
Evidence indicates that cells absorb infrared and red light
photos and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate
(ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting ATP
is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA,
RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair
or regenerate cell components.
A study in the Journal of Neurological and Orthopaedic Medicine
and Surgery examined light therapy on various pain and inflam-
mation conditions. The results are shown below.
One hundred two patients were treated for TS/SCS, representing
200 total cases treated. Of the 102 patients, 94 (92.0%) had some
type of previous treatment for these conditions. Figure 1 shows
TS/SCS patient responses to treatment with skin-contact mono-
chromatic infrared irradiation: 176 (88.0%) of the cases treated
had total to excellent relief from the treatment in 1-12 applications.
Twenty-two total cases (11.0%) had fair to poor relief, and 2 cases
(1.0%) had no relief. Results using the home therapy system were
not statistically nor clinically significantly different than results
obtained in the clinical setting. 2
One hundred nonsurgical patients were treated for
TMJ capsulitis, representing 195 total cases treated.
Total to excellent relief in 1-12 treatments in 173
cases (88.7%) was demonstrated. Nineteen cases
(9.7%) had fair to poor relief, and 3 cases (1.6%)
had no relief. Of the 28 postoperative cases treated
for capsulitis, 23 cases (82.1%) reported total to
excellent relief in 1-12 treatments. Four cases (14.3%)
reported fair to poor relief, and 1 case (3.6%) reported
no relief. Results with the home therapy system were
not statistically nor clinically significantly different than
with clinical applications. 2
Myofascial Pain/Muscle Spasm
Results of 361 case responses to treatment of myofascial pain/muscle spasm using skin-contact
monochromatic infrared irradiation. The graph shows 324 (89.8%) of all patients treated had total to excellent
relief in 12 treatments or less. Thirty-three cases (9.1%) had fair to poor relief overall, and 4 cases (1.1%) had no
relief. Results using the home therapy system were not statistically nor clinically significantly different than with
