Pain is the most common symptoms of patients in the daily practice of physiotherapy. From several modalities of physical therapy, infrared therapy is the modality most often used to reduce pain. In use non luminous infrared distance lamp used is between 45-60 cm, the ray perpendicular to the cultivated area treated and the time between 10-30 minutes. On the use of luminous infrared distance 35-45 cm, ray perpendicular cultivated, the time between 10-30 minutes tailored to the condition of the disease. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of infra-red range of the pain threshold.This study is a true experiment with a population of members of the Ikatan Muda Mudi Margomulyo, Desa Jono, Kecamatan Tanon kabupaten Sragen and the study sample as many as 28 youths. Research instruments in the form of TENS brands Inwubums and Infrared irradiation with infrared distance 35cm and 45 cm. Techniques of data analysis using the Wilcoxon Signed Ranks test Test or Paired sample t-test. Conclusions in this study are (1) there is a difference in the effectiveness of infra-red range of the threshold of pain stimuli and (2) on the Infrared radiation with a distance of 35 cm more effectively increase the pain threshold of the infrared radiation at a distance of 45 cm.
