Airdrie Bioflex Laser Therapy
ARE YOU WONDERING IF LASER WILL HELP YOU?
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses a strong beam of focused light. This light can be targeted at specific areas and tuned to specific wavelengths. The word LASER is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Cold laser therapy uses a laser that is set at a lower intensity of focused light. For soft tissue injury treatment, cold laser therapy targets injured areas with this low level to accelerate tissue repair and cell growth. As a result of exposure to this focused low-level laser light, the cells of injured tendons, ligaments, nerves, and muscles are repaired faster.

✅Reduces the need for pharmaceuticals
✅Restores range of motion and physical function
✅No known adverse effects
✅No drug interactions
✅Often makes surgical interventions unnecessary
✅Provides a treatment alternative for patients that have not responded to conventional therapies
The technology utilizes superluminous and laser diodes to irradiate diseased or traumatized tissue with photons. These particles of energy are selectively absorbed by the cell membrane and intracellular molecules, resulting in the initiation of a cascade of complex physiological reactions, leading to the restoration of normal cell structure and function.
In addition, it enhances the body’s immune system response and facilitates natural healing. The therapy is completely safe and has no adverse side effects.
The process is curative and therefore results in the elimination of symptoms including pain.
What To Expect With Cold Laser Therapy Treatments
✅Complete health history & examination
✅Specific & unique treatment plan to obtain the best and fastest results possible.
✅Additional healing resources including rehabilitation exercises, nutrition recommendations, and at home practices for you to speed up your healing.
During a Cold laser treatment, you may feel nothing at all or the sensation of warmth at the targeted area. Patients with acute injuries may experience relief before they leave the clinic, with maximum benefits being experienced 6 - 8 hours after. Patients with chronic injuries may take up to four treatments before any difference is felt.
Accelerated healing is achieved by increasing the energy production of injured cells. Cold Laser Therapy increases the biochemical energy at the injured site and stimulates the following healing by:
✅increasing oxygenated blood supply to healing tissue
✅increasing collagen production that enhances the elasticity of tissue
✅increasing regeneration of damaged muscle tissue
✅accelerating bone injury repair
✅increasing cartilage formation to return to healthy joint function
✅increasing nerve regeneration
✅reducing edema and inflammation
No, the reason it is called Cold Laser therapy is because there is no heat associated with the treatment. However some patients may feel a little bit of warmth where the laser is applied, but the majority feel no sensation.
The laser uses a complex computer program, as well as low-intensity laser diodes, or ‘light plates,’ to treat injured tissue. Velcro straps hold the light plates of the laser in place on your body. The light source is placed in contact with the skin, allowing the photon (light) energy to penetrate the tissue. Here it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules to restore normal cell function and enhance the body’s healing processes.
Yes, with Cold Laser Therapy, there is no sensation of heat, vibration or oscillation. The amount of energy produced with this low level laser is set precisely for therapeutic benefits to the body’s targeted cells. Do not misinterpret this lack of sensation during treatment as the laser is actively working and continues to effect healing for up to 8 hours after treatment
We recommend patients refrain from any additional intense activity that would involve the treated area for up to 24 hours. This ensures that the treated area has time to rest and start the healing recovery process.
