WHAT IS LASER THERAPY
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is the use of light to promote healing of the underlying condition or pathology of diseased tissue
It does not heat or cut tissue.
It is safe and has virtually no side effects.
The Laser System used at the Wiesner Centre for Health and Wellness was developed by Doctors and Engineers at Meditech International. The patented three step process has been clinically proven to improve patient outcomes and is continually improved upon at Meditech, where Clinicians and Engineers work side-by-side. The focus on patient care ensures that Bioflex Laser Systems are optimized to promote accelerated healing, the elimination of pain and the decrease of inflammation.
Years of clinical research at Meditech have proven that Laser Therapy treatments are effective and the benefits are long lasting.
THE BIOFLEX SYSTEM
The Bioflex Laser Therapy System uses a patented three-step process that provides the highest clinical success rates with predictable, reliable and reproducible results. It has been designed for optimal penetration of tissue with precise control of light dosage. It includes the use of large, flexible arrays combined with laser probes.
STEP ONE: LS-R 750
The Red Array provides red light, which is capable of penetrating tissues to a depth of about 8-10mm. It is primarily used to saturate the superficial layers of tissue with light and to provide an analgesic effect. The light energy that is absorbed at this level is converted to cellular energy which increases circulation, lymph system activity, collagen production, ATP Production, tissue granulation and reduces inflammation. Red light promotes the healing of wounds and injuries and the relief of pain.
During a treatment, the red light will be visible but is completely safe to see. You will experience a gentle 'warmth' to the tissues.
STEP TWO: LS-I 1500
Once the series of placements are complete with the first array, the entire sequence is repeated with the 2nd array. But during this process, Infrared light will be used. This type of light penetrates deeper into the tissues. This light is not visible, but once again it is safe without the use of protective eye wear. Little to no heat is present. Once absorbed, Infrared Light stimulates the same natural processes as the Red Light, but on a much deeper level. There is an increase in blood flow, allowing the parts of the body to receive the oxygen and nutrients needed to function more effectively. Regeneration is stimulated. Inflammation and pain are reduced.
STEP THREE: LD-I 200
This is an integral part of the therapy in the majority of pathologies treated. A deeper and more concentrated penetration of light is provided. During this phase of the treatment the Therapist will focus specifically on the areas of primary concern. No heat is present. This concentration of light is stronger and also invisible, therefore anyone in proximity during this phase will wear protective eye wear.
