MedX Laser Therapy: Natural, Non-Invasive and Drug-free Solution
Initially developed over three decades ago, phototherapy promotes quicker healing of the body by using a specific kind of light to penetrate the surface of the skin and the underlying tissues. The stimulation of the body's natural repair process results in accelerated recovery while reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation of muscles.
Chiropractic Wellness and Rehabilitation utilizes the concept of phototherapy by using the MedX Laser to conduct laser therapy which uses low level lasers and super luminous diodes. This is used to treat acute and chronic conditions, physical injuries, repetitive strain disorders, and many other conditions. Laser therapy has also been hailed as a treatment that provides natural, effective, non-invasive, drug-free phototherapy solutions that triggers normal cellular functions to promote faster wound healing, pain relief and functional recovery.
Laser therapy treatments, like MedX Phototherapy, makes use of low level lasers. Unlike high level lasers that are used to cut right through tissue for surgical procedures, low level lasers simply stimulate tissue repair through a process of bio-stimulation. There is no heat, no damage to the skin, and no known side effects, making it completely safe.
