Laser Therapy F.A.Q.

Does Laser Therapy Hurt?

Generally, you won’t feel anything during your laser therapy treatment. The Bioflex laser uses small amounts of light energy to produce therapeutic results. If you have a lot of inflammation or damage to tissues in the treatment area, you might feel a “pin-pricking” sensation. This is due to the hypersensitivity of the area. Occasionally, you may feel some warmth. As one patient commented, “You don’t feel anything… except better!”

Why Don’t I See A Light On During Part Of The Treatment?

The light is not in the visible part of the spectrum. The Bioflex laser uses 3 different wavelengths of light energy. The first is in the red part of the light spectrum. The second is in the near infra-red range, which our eyes are unable to see. The laser probe (the last part of treatment) is a focused beam, also in the infra-red range of the light spectrum.

Why Hasn’t My Family Doctor Recommended Laser Therapy?

Your MD might not be aware of this treatement option. Although laser therapy treatment has been around for over 50 years, and the Bioflex laser system was designed by a medical doctor, most family doctors are not yet aware of the benefits of laser therapy. You can help them learn by sharing your laser experience with them.
