Bioflex Laser Therapy What to Expect

Low Intensity Laser Therapy improves and cures multiple pathologies in the shortest possible period of time while achieving the following goals:
  1. Absense of Pain.
  2. Eliminate the need for drugs.
  3. Restoration of mobility. (normal range of motion)
  4. Improve quality of life. (activity levels, sleep, etc.)
  5. Reduce the need for surgical intervention.
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is the use of monochromatic light emission from a low intensity laser diode (250 miliwatts or less) or an array of high intensity Super Luminous Diodes (providing optical power in the 1000-2000 miliwatt range) to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function and enhancement of the body’s healing processes. There is no discomfort while receiving the Bioflex Therapy. You will be fully clothed with the exception of the part of the body we are treating, seated comfortably or lying down. Many patients find their sessions relaxing enough to nap.

Treatments are usually scheduled 2-3 times a week or more frequently in acute cases, at least initially. Subsequent treatments are scheduled in accordance with the patient’s status. With regard to the number of treatment sessions, a minimum of 10-15 treatments is recommended. It is important to be aware that before treatment is initiated that the exact number of treatments cannot be predicted. In most cases we expect to see some change in symptomology after 3-5 sessions. There are however exceptions to this rule. Acute injuries generally respond more rapidly than chronic problems and each individual’s tissue response varies. Please do not forget that our objective is to minimize the length of treatment and the number of visits. However, on occasion even our best efforts require multiple treatments, patience and time.

Unfortunately all the major insurance companies have chosen to exclude Low Level Laser as a covered treatment at this time. They are a number of years behind in reviewing research and earlier research was not designed to administer sufficient dosage for a biological effect.  More recent research and clinical surveys has confirmed that when sufficient dosage parameters are used Laser Therapy promotes cell regeneration and speeds up healing.

We have purposely kept our fees below typical laser therapy fees in order to assist you in affording treatment.
The cost  of BioFlex Laser/Light Therapy is related to the extent of your injury and your response to the treatment. Treatments average around $60 per session for extremities and neck and $80 per session for low back and hip. Most patients experience some relief almost immediately.  We have documented pain free patients after as few as two sessions.
