Clinical Benefits Physiological Effects
Eliminates pain

Increased production and release of:

  • Endorphins - natural analgesics
  • Cortisol - precursor of cortisone
  • Growth Hormone - instrumental in tissue repair
  • ATP - improves and regulates cellular metabolism

Reduces the need for pharmaceuticals

Restores normal range of motion and physical function
Non-invasive
Non-toxic
No known adverse effects
No drug interactions Venous and lymphatic flow facilitated
Often makes surgical interventions unnecessary Increased angiogenesis – elevation of oxygen saturation
Provides a treatment alternative for patients that have not responded to conventional therapies Enhanced immune response, etc.

How Does it Work?

Laser therapy is the use of light from a Low Intensity Laser Diode or an array of Superluminous Diodes to eliminate pain, accelerate healing and decrease inflammation. Low intensity laser therapy (LILT) is also known as cold laser or photobiomodulation.

Laser therapy does not heat or cut tissue, unlike high intensity lasers. Many pharmacological treatments mask pain or only address the symptoms of the 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.

With LILT laser light penetrates the tissues and restores normal cell function. It enhances the body’s own healing process by decreasing inflammation, increasing the speed of healing and eliminating pain.
It is NON-TOXIC, SAFE & NON-INVASIVE.  LILT can successfully treat a variety of medical conditions that include:

General Injuries Inflammatory Musculoskeletal Other Applications Dermal Ulcers Burns Dermatology
Chronic & Acute Pain Ligament Tears Plantar Fasciitis Osteoarthritis Diabetic Neuropathies Diabetic Ulcers Thermal Burns Psoriasis
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome Tendon Tears Tendonitis Chondromalacia Patella General Neuropathies Venous Stasis Ulcers Chemical Burns Eczema
Repetitive Stress Injuries Fractures Bursitis Radiculopathies Wound Healing Atherosclerotic Ulcers Shingles (Herpes Zoster)
Headaches & Migraines Soft Tissue Injuries Discogenic Back Pain Gout Traumatic Ulcers
Arthritis Facet Joint Syndrome Discogenic Neck Pain Acute Lymphedema
Fibromyalgia Bulging Discs Spinal Stenosis Chronic Lymphedema
TMJ Issues (Jaw issues) Herniated Discs Bone Spurs
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Contusions Calcifications
Epicondylitis Sprain & Strain Injuries

At North Bay Chiropractic & Laser Centre we use the BioFlex Professional Laser Therapy System exclusively.

The BioFlex system utilizes three stages of treatment, red, near-infrared and a near-infrared laser probe. It is this combined effect of three different wavelengths of light that contributes to the system’s effectiveness.

With the BioFlex system we now achieve results that we did not think were possible…and many of our patients, who are now living pain free, would agree!
