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:

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!
