What is laser therapy?

BioFlex Laser Therapy is a type of therapy that combines Low Intensity Lasers and Superluminous Diodes to treat a wide variety of  medical conditions. It was created and developed by Meditech International Inc. It is a safe, non invasive technology that works when the light emitting from the laser comes in contact with the skin. The light emits diodes which irradiates diseased or traumatized tissues with particles known as photons.  The photons are a source of energy that penetrate the skin and are absorbed into the cell membrane where they cause complex physiological reactions. These reactions result in the creation of normal cell structure and function. Overall, Laser Therapy has proven to be highly effective at eliminating pain, suffering, and inflammation while accelerating and promoting healing.

What makes BioFlex laser therapy different from traditional treatments?

BioFlex Laser Therapy differs from traditional treatments as it targets and eliminates the underlying condition and source of pain, rather than just treating the symptoms of pain. This type of laser therapy also directly targets the condition at the cellular level, causing several complex physiological changes. This makes it a treatment that is effective and long lasting.

What conditions can be treated with laser therapy?

Therapeutic laser is effective over a wide range of conditions. Conditions successfully treated with laser therapy include musculoskeletal conditions, arthritis, soft tissue and sports injuries, wound healing, sprains/ strains, low back pain, repetitive strain injuries, inflammation, chronic and degenerative conditions, dermatological conditions (eczema, burns, acne)

How long does a treatment take?

The length of a treatment can vary depending on the type of injury and condition that is being treated. Treatments typically range from 30 minutes to 1 hour in length.

Are all therapeutic laser devices created equal?

Absolutely not. “Beware of imposters”. We’ve done our homework and are highly confident that we are using the highest quality of technology available. This company has devoted an incredible amount of resources into research and development. We believe their product is second to none, and that results will speak for themselves.

Can you show me some scientific research to support laser therapy?

Sure. Here’s a starting point: http://www.bioflexlaser.com/research/meditech-articles.php

How many treatments are needed?

The number of laser therapy treatments is determined on an individual basis, as individuals react to the treatments in different ways. A recent clinical study was conducted on 1000 patients that were being treated by BioFlex Laser Therapy, and on average the patients needed 10 treatments to eliminate their condition. It has been suggested by Meditech INC.  that the average number of treatments needed by patients ranges from 5 to 20.

What do the treatments cost?

A laser treatment is $45/treatment. Sometimes we will combine laser with other treatments. If this is the case, the price might be a “Combination treatment” price, which is $54/treatment.

Is laser therapy safe?

Yes. There have been several studies on BioFlex Laser Therapy which have indicated that it is both safe and very effective. This technology is also non-toxic, non-invasive, and is a safe over metal implants (such as surgical screws and plates).

Should some be advised not to use laser therapy?

There’s very few contraindications to laser therapy. A couple of exceptions exist.  We would not use it on cancerous tumours, or on the womb of pregnant women who are in their first trimester.
