How Laser Therapy Works

Customizing to Your Needs

Laser therapy treatment on patient

The Bioflex® laser therapy system is a unique solution for healing. It is driven by software, allowing us to account for factors such a body type, age and skin pigmentation, all of which influence how the light is absorbed. The light can be modulated, allowing for the correct dosage and type of light for different areas of the body.

What is Laser Therapy and How Does It Work?

Laser Therapy is the use of monochromatic light emissions from low intensity laser diodes to treat acute musculoskeletal injuries and chronic degenerative conditions. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon (light) energy to penetrate the tissue.

The healing mechanism is not based on the generation of heat but rather on photochemical reactions within the cells. Photon energy interacts with various intracellular biomolecules, transforming light into biochemical energy.

When photon energy is absorbed by chromophores, it is converted to adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the inner membrane of the mitochondria. Additional ATP is then available to power the metabolic processes in cells. The beneficial effect of Laser Therapy is the promotion of homeostasis. The end result is the restoration of normal cell function and the enhancement of the body’s healing processes.

Numerous Advantages to Your Health

The main benefit of laser therapy is that it accelerates your healing by about 60%. The other benefits you may experience include:

  • Decreased swelling and inflammation
  • Increased range of motion
