Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?

Low Level Laser Therapy, also known as Photobiomodulation, is a light-based technology proven to be highly effective in the treatment of injuries and lesions. It uses red and near-infrared light to eliminate pain, speed healing, reduce inflammation, and restore normal cell function.

Laser Therapy is a non-toxic, non-invasive and safe method of treating a variety of medical conditions that include:


General

Repetitive Stress Injury, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Rotator Cuff Tear, Epicondylitis, Fibromyalgia, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, Headaches and Migrains, Chronic and Acute Pain and Arthritis.


Injuries

Ligament and Tendon Tears, Fractures, Soft Tissue Injuries, Facet Joint Syndrome, Bulging and Herniated Discs, Contusions, Repetitive Sprain and Strain Injury.

Tendonitis, Bursitis and Plantar Fascitis.

Osteoarthritis, Condromalacia, Patella, Discogenic and Radiculopathy, Spinal Stenosis, Calcifications (ie. Bone spurs)

Herpes Zoster (Shingles), Eczema, Psoriasis


    Burns

    Thermal, Chemical


      Dermal Ulcers

      Venous Stasis, Atherosclerotic, Diabetic, Traumatic


        Other Applications

        Wound Healing, Gout, Lymphedema (Acute and Chronic), Neuropathies (Diabetes, etc.)


        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.
