What is Laser Therapy ?

Laser Therapy offers patients a safe and effective therapy for a wide range of medical conditions, including soft tissue and back problems, a variety of musculoskeletal problems, sports injuries, wound healing and many dermatological conditions. Over the past 20 years, Meditech has developed the BioFlex Series of Low Intensity Laser Therapy Systems, the most advanced and effective devices available on a global basis. Incorporating basic research, scientific knowledge and clinical expertise, the company has developed protocols for a vast array of medical conditions. Laser Therapy uses red and infrared light for the relief of pain, to accelerate healing and decrease inflammation. When the light source is placed against the skin, the photons penetrate several centimetres and get absorbed by the mitochondria, the energy producing part of a cell. This energy fuels many positive physiological responses resulting in the restoration of normal cell morphology and function. Laser Therapy has been successfully used to treat a broad range of medical conditions, with an infinite range of protocols which can be customized to tackle particular ailments. Unlike many pharmacological treatments that mask pain or only address the symptoms of disease, Laser Therapy treats the underlying condition or pathology to promote healing. This means that the treatments are effective and the benefits of Laser Therapy are long lasting.
