What is Light Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity laser diode (250 milliwatts or less) or an array of high intensity super luminous diodes (providing total optical power in the 1000-2000 milliwatt range). Conditions treated include musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions and wounds. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell morphology and function. This also enhances the body’s natural healing processes.

Low Intensity Laser Therapy Systems (LILT)

The Technology

This dynamic emerging technology utilizes super luminous and laser diodes to irradiate abnormal tissue with photons.  These are particles of energy that are absorbed by a variety of micro-molecules within the cell, a process that initiates a number of positive physiological responses.  In essence, light energy is converted into biochemical energy.  The result – normal cell morphology and function are restored.  The process is curative and as logic dictates, symptoms disappear.
Light in its various forms has been used for healing from the time of the ancient Egyptian and Greek civilizations.  With recent advances in the engineering of devices and the development of appropriate protocols for effective therapeutic application, dramatic benefits and treatment of many complex medical conditions are achievable. The BioFlex System combines numerous sophisticated engineering advances with the capacity to control all parameters such as frequency, duty cycle, energy density, duration, etc. An infinitive range of protocols can then be delivered to tissue in standard fashion or a customized basis.

Advantages of Laser Therapy:

  • Non-invasive
  • Non-toxic
  • Easily applied
  • Highly effective
  • Cure rate > 90%
  • No known negative side effects

Some of the physiological effects of low intensity laser therapy

Short Term Effects:

  • Production and release of beta-endorphins (these are morphine like substances produced by various cells in the body that inhibit the sensation of pain)
  • Cortisol production is increased (cortisol is the precursor of cortisone).  This enables the body to combat the stress associated with trauma or the disease process
  • The short-term effect is significant in 5-10% of cases during or after the conclusion of the initial treatment, but is not as important as the long term or cumulative effect

Long Term or Cumulative Effect

  • ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production is increased resulting in improved cellular metabolism
  • DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) production; protein building block of tissue is substantially increased
  • Neurotransmission is facilitated due to elevated levels of serotonin and acetylcholine
  • Mitochondrial activity is stimulated resulting in cell replication etc. (i.e. replacement, regeneration and repair of abnormal cells)
  • Modulation of macrophages, fibroblasts and other cells
  • Angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels)
  • Regulates cell membrane potential, essential in Na, Cl and K ion transfer (electrolyte balance)
  • Cytokines and other chemicals enhancing cellular communications are released

Other Effects

  • The immune response is stimulated
  • Lymphatic drainage is improved
  • The histamine response is positively altered
  • Production of growth hormone is increased
  • The body’s natural healing processes are enhanced

The beneficial physiological changes noted above are the result of tissue regeneration and cellular stimulation.  Many other positive activities are modulated including the humoral and cerebral spinal fluid effects, which are highly significant and are currently under investigation in research laboratories to accurately delineate the scientific aspects of this process.

Client Testimonials

“Since starting with the laser (BioFlex), I have had some outstanding results in being able to get our athletes back to the game and practice. I have no hesitations to give this unit my full Endorsement.”
Chuck Mooney, Head Trainer, Toronto Raptors
My treatment began in early December. By the beginning of February I was able to go off my medication for pain control. Treatment by treatment the discomfort lessened until I was totally pain free. I have returned to my previous active life, playing good golf this past summer is able to entertain and enjoy the life that I was given back to me through the extraordinary laser treatments.
As a footnote, I would like to mention that I am 83 years of age, but feel twenty year younger with this renewal.
