Low level laser therapy

The Healing Nature of Light

First developed over 30 years ago, phototherapy uses a specific type of light to penetrate the skin’s surface and underlying tissues to stimulate the body’s natural repair processes. The result is faster healing and reduced pain, swelling and inflammation.

MedX Health is dedicated to improving quality of life for those who experience pain, sports injuries and rehabilitative conditions. MedX offers natural, effective, non-invasive, drug-free phototherapy solutions that are FDA cleared, Health Canada licenced and CE Marked. Applying light produced by low level laser and superluminous diodes, triggers normal cellular functions that lead to faster wound healing, pain relief and accelerated functional recovery.

MedX Phototherapy has been used successfully to treat athletic injuries, acute & chronic conditions, repetitive strain disorders, tissue healing and much more. By providing the extra energy required for healing, the tissue is able to heal itself naturally. This innovative therapeutic alternative may also eliminate the need for painful, debilitating surgeries and drug therapies so often accompanied by harmful side effects.

Exploring the Healing Effects of MedX Phototherapy

Phototherapy exposes the cells of the body to light, and particular wavelengths of light are able to produce photochemical reactions, stimulating the cells of the body into producing more energy. This increase in energy levels allows the cells to work more effectively in properly balancing the cellular components, so that the cells can function properly. The laser light functions as biochemical energy and improves the efficiency of the body’s healing capabilities. The result is that the body is able to heal itself in a shorter period of time.

Some of the unique healing effects of MedX Phototherapy include:

  • Increased cell metabolism
  • Improved localized blood circulation
  • Development of collagen and muscle tissue
  • Relief from acute and chronic pain
  • Reduced localized inflammation and edema
  • Stimulation for wound healing and tissue repair
  • Stimulation of the immune system
  • Stimulation of nerve function
