There’s a new product on the market to treat pain associated with fibromyalgia. It’s neither a drug nor a wellness regimen—it’s a pulsing beam of light.
FibroLux, a laser-based therapy developed by Multi Radiance Medical, became the first so-called “photoceutical” device approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help fibromyalgia patients manage pain.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes muscle and joint pain all over the body. Fibromyalgia patients are often highly sensitive to pain that wouldn’t typically bother most people, and they may experience extreme fatigue and memory problems. It affects about 2% of people in the United States.
