Laser therapy, also known as photobiostimulation, 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 disc injuries, concussions, osteoarthritis, sprains and strains, tendinitis and whiplash to name a few.
The BioFlex laser system, used at the Robichaud-Lévesque Clinic, is a highly sophisticated therapeutic device and the most advanced Class 3 B laser system available. Never before has a laser treatment offered such sophisticated levels of accuracy, control and versatility. The Bioflex control unit provides exceptional monitoring and adaptability, enabling the healthcare professional unlimited flexibility in the adjustments of multiple parameters to safely and accurately treat the specific needs of each individual patient.
How does it work
Low intensity Laser/ Photobiomodulation therapy initiates and stimulates many beneficial physiological processes within the cells of injured tissue, including cartilaginous regeneration, DNA synthesis, and improved microcirculation and has both an analgesic and an anti-inflammatory effect, resulting in significant therapeutic benefits. It is non-toxic, painless and has no adverse effect on the tissue.
The Advantages of Laser/ Photobiomodulation Therapy
No known negative side effects
The Bioflex Laser 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.
What to expect
Clinical research indicates that for a majority of conditions, 20-45 minutes is the optimal duration of treatment, while 5 to 15 treatments may be required to achieve resolution. Patients generally do not experience any sensations during the treatment. Typically, the more acute the injury, the faster the healing time. The more chronic and extensive the condition, the more treatments are required. Other variables that influence the number of sessions required, include the patient’s age and health, activity level and smoking to name a few.
The Bioflex Laser System’s tract record is based on over a million individual applications to date and has shown a significant improvement/cure rate for a variety of conditions 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.
Laser/ photobiomodulation therapy may be utilised in conjunction with chiropractic procedures in order to facilitate the healing process when indicated.
The Vielight Laser is primarily directed towards the treatment of concussion and MTBI (mild traumatic brain injury). By stimulating your brain with bioenergenics and neurostimulation technology the Vielight Laser improves mental acuity and general wellness.
The Vielight Laser devices uniquely enable light energy to penetrate the cranium (transcranial and intranasal) to reach and stimulate the brain. Brain photobiomodulation (PBM) delivers near infrared light to neurons and stimulates neuronal mitochondria, which increases cellular energy levels. This results in improved efficiency in neural signalling and communication.
Vielight technology has the ability to modulate and alter brainwaves using NIR electromagnetic (light) energy, measured through EEG.
