LOW INTENSITY LASER THERAPY
Laser Therapy offers a safe and effective therapy for a wide range of medical conditions, including soft tissue and sports injuries, wound healing, arthritis, dermatological conditions and a variety of musculoskeletal problems.
Meditech's BioFlex System provides therapy that is non-toxic, non-invasive, safe, cost effective, an alternative to pain killers, anti-inflammatory's and other medications.
WHAT IS LASER THERAPY?
Low Intensity Laser Therapy uses light from laser diodes and/or Super Luminous Diodes called SLDS,(SLDs are very bright LEDs) to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions.
The light source is placed in direct contact with the skin allowing the light energy to penetrate into the tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function and enhancement of the body’s healing processes.
Since Laser Therapy is low power, the light does not produce enough heat to destroy tissue. The only thing the patient feels is mild warmth due to the fact that all light sources generate some heat. We will be able to create a treatment program specific to your condition and needs.
The process is curative and therefore results in the elimination of symptoms including pain. In addition, it enhances the body's immune system response and facilitates natural healing. The therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.
Soft Tissue and Sports Injuries
Ligament/tendon/muscle inflammation & tears
Knee dysfunction (Meniscal/ligamentous tears)
Repetitive Stress Injuries
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Rotator Cuff Injuries
Epicondylitis (golfers/tennis elbow)
Tendonitis (supraspinatus/achilles etc.) Plantar Fasciitis
Herpes (Post-herpetic Neuralgia)
Increased production and release of:
Endorphins - natural analgesics
Cortisol - precursor of cortisone
Growth hormone - instrumental in tissue repair
ATP - improves and regulates cellular metabolism
In addition, there is:
Increased protein synthesis - collagen, DNA, fibroblasts
Venous and lymphatic flow facilitated
Increased angiogenesis - elevation of oxygen saturation
Enhanced immune response, etc.
These are just some of the many processes that accelerate cellular regeneration (cartilage,epithelium) and restore normal cell morphology and function.
