Laser Therapy For Pain and Injuries
If you have been suffering with a painful condition or injury and have not seen any progress from common treatments and medication, then the you need a solution…the LASER PAIN SOLUTION!
We are the first Meditech BIOFLEX Laser Therapy pain clinic in Richmond Hill since 2004 and have patients in Oak Ridges, Aurora, King City & Newmarket communities. Once used exclusively with professional athletes, including our own Toronto Maple Leafs, Raptors and Argonauts, the BIOFLEX laser therapy system is on the cutting edge of rehabilitation technology.
Over 30 years of international research and clinical experience indicate that low intensity laser therapy is a safe, non-invasive and highly effective treatment for a variety of conditions such as:
- Low back & neck pain
- Sciatica/Herniated discs
- Cervcial or tension headaches
- Rotator cuff injury & tears
- Golfer’s / Tennis elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sprain / strains / tendonitis
- Carpal tunnel sundrome
- Osteoarthritis / Rheumatoid arthritis
- TMJ sundrome
- Wound healing
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy over injured tissues. The energy is absorbed by light receptors (chromophores) found within the cells that initiate a series of important metabolic changes and photochemical reactions. The end result is a significant acceleration and enhancement of the body’s natural defense and repair mechanisms.
A brief scientific explanation of how LILT works at a cellular level is presented by Prof. Michael Hamblin of Harvard Medical School and the Wellman Centre for Photomedicine:
For many years, traditional rehabilitation therapies — including ultrasound, interferential current and TENS — have been used extensively throughout the world to treat pain and stimulate the healing process. Unlike BIOFLEX, however, the healing effects of these treatments have been disappointing as they only modulate symptoms. These therapies are limited in effectiveness and in their range of applications (for example ultrasound should not be used over bony prominences, pins, plates and very acute injuries).
In contrast BIOFLEX is able to influence the pathology directly at the cellular level, resulting in therapeutic benefits that are more profound and generally curative. At best, alternative therapies act as counter-irritants, creating a transient increase in circulation and the release of endorphins, providing only temporary symptomatic relief.
There is an abundance of scientific research that has been done and continues to be done in the area of low intensity laser therapy. To view the research, follow the blog from THOR laser systems: http://blog.thorlaser.com
I have been providing Bioflex laser pain treatments to the Oak Ridges, Richmond Hill and Aurora and surrounding communities for more than 12 years.
