We are happy to provide Low Intensity Laser Therapy(LILT) with the Meditech BioFlex laser system. This system delivers photons of light energy at 660nm, 830nm and 840nm infrared wavelengths. The wavelengths are delivered through 180 super luminous diode treatment heads and a laser probe. This method of delivering light energy has shown through repeated scientific studies to produce a very successful therapeutic benefit on all tissues. As your whole body is composed of cells, it has a therapeutic benefit almost everywhere.
The photons of energy that are emitted by the treatment heads are absorbed by a variety of molecules in the cells. This energy is converted to biochemical energy and produces a number of therapeutic benefits.
HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?
Treatments are typically 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the area and condition being treated.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments will depend on the chronicity and the extent of the pathology involved. Based on the genetic makeup of the cells, an individual’s response to LILT will vary to some degree. A recent clinical review, including 1,000 consecutively treated patients, reveals the average number of treatments to be 9.4. Treatments can range from 3 to 30 sessions.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Unlike most pharmaceutical solutions and other therapeutic options, laser therapy
