Photobiomodulation, or laser therapy, has been used successfully for over a half century as a therapeutic approach in the treatment of an extensive range of acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, including concussion/mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), arthritis, sprains and strains, tendinitis, spinal disc conditions and whiplash among others.
The Bioflex system, a class 3 laser, is a highly sophisticated therapeutic device that combines the benefits of laser with super luminous diodes for the effective treatment of many medical disorders by enhancing the healing process, reducing pain and inflammation. Photobiostimulation therapy initiates and stimulates many beneficial physiological processes within the cells of injured tissue, including cartilaginous regeneration, DNA synthesis, and improved microcirculation. It has both an analgesic and an anti-inflammatory effect, resulting in therapeutic benefits that are more profound and generally curative. It is non-toxic, painless and has no adverse effect on the tissue.
The Bioflex has been approved for use by the FDA and Heath Canada. The CE mark of approval has also been obtained and the manufacturing standards of UL and ISO have been fully observed as well.
Clinical research indicates that for a majority of conditions, 20-60 minutes is the optimal duration of treatment, while 5 to 20 treatments may be required to achieve resolution.
The Bioflex’s track record is based on over a million individual applications to date and with appropriate diagnosis: a 90% significant improvement/cure rate has been shown.
The Bioflex is in use today across North America, Europe, South America and Asia. This system is being used by an increasing number of chiropractors, physiotherapists and physicians amongst others. Additionally, the Toronto Raptors, the Maple Leafs, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Miami Heat and the Canadian Ballet Company along with many others have utilized this technology successfully.
At our facility, the Bioflex laser is utilised in conjunction with chiropractic procedures in order to facilitate the healing process in cases of mechanical implications with spine patients.
