At the Johnston Health Center, 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 systemís effectiveness. If you Google laser therapy in your area, you will see lasers used for face lifts, fat reduction, dental healing, dermatology, wound care, vision improvement, and more. Research in all areas has proven laser therapy to be an effective form of treatment in healing.

Our laser is specific to soft tissue healing, such as acute/chronic neck, and low back pain, and sports injuries.
