Laser Therapy Info

Photobiomodulation (PBM) is an effective, non-invasive, drug-free solution that has no known side effects. It has been used as a means for reducing pain and speeding healing for over 30 years. Professional clinicians trust MedX PBM to stimulate the body’s natural repair processes at the cellular level.

Benefits

There are a number of benefits to using MedX PBM rather than other electro modalities. It is more efficient because there are no messy conduction mediums and time consuming setups, and more than one site can be treated at the same time.

Patients are comfortable during treatments, and more likely to complete a series of treatments in order to benefit from the accumulative effects of light.  Patients whose health issues can be challenging to treat, such as circulatory problems and nerve impairments, have shown that PBM is an effective way to achieve better outcomes.

Benefits of MedX PBM

The Healing nature of light

First developed over 30 years ago, PBM 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 photobiomodulation solutions. 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 PBM 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.

The healing effects of Therapeutic and dental lasers

Photobiomodulation exposes the cells of the body to light, and particular wavelengths of light are able to produce photo-chemical 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 PBM include:

FAQs

Photobiomodulation (“PBM”) Therapy is also known as Low Level Light/Laser Therapy, Cold Laser Therapy, or Photostimulation. The North American Association of Laser Therapy’s (“NAALT”) definition of PBM Therapy, “is the use of light therapy that utilizes non-ionizing forms of light sources, including Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (“LASERS”), Light Emitting Diodes (“LEDs”), and broad-band light, in the visible and infrared spectrum.”

It is a non-thermal process involving the absorption of light energy to elicit photophysical and photochemical events within the body.

The effectiveness of PBM Therapy has been verified in thousands of clinical trials and lab studies, and published in many leading peer-reviewed medical journals. Based on the literature, PBM Therapy is a proven, safe, drug-free solution that can improve patient outcomes in a variety of rehabilitation applications.

There is strong evidence that PBM Therapy provides effective pain relief, both in therapeutic rehab and dental applications, dramatically reducing if not eliminating the need for prescription drugs or opioids. During teeth extractions and other dental procedures, for example, PBM Therapy has proven to be a highly effective pain manager. It has also been seen to help dramatically reduce related pain in dry socket, dental infection, soft tissue lesions, anesthetics, nausea and gagging, orthodontics, dental emergencies, and root sensitivity.

PBM Therapy has also shown to be effective for chiropractic, physiotherapy and athletic therapy uses, such as treatment for tendonitis, arthritis, inflammation, muscle fatigue, injuries and chronic pain.

MedX Rehab Console

The compact MedX Console has three accessory ports to provide the flexibility to use either laser or SLD combinations in continuous or pulsed mode. The console also offers the flexibility of using 3 SLD clusters. Built-in guidelines prompt you through the selection of protocols, then automatically calculate and display dosage and treatment times. Alternatively, treatment protocols can also be quickly programmed in manual mode, allowing for easy set-up.

Once activated, the console displays the time and energy delivered for each port separately, and automatically turns itself off once treatment is completed. For each patient you can treat up to three sites at the same time.

MedX console powers and controls a 450 mW Rehab Handheld Infrared Laser and 2 hands-free 1000mW visible red and infrared SLD clusters. Alternatively, three SLD clusters can be used in the console when the laser has been removed. One benefit of the laser is a more directed, deeper penetration of energy, while the SLD clusters provide more even distribution of photon energy and positive systemic effects.

MedX Console Accessories

Rehab Handheld Laser

The MedX handheld laser is an ergonomically designed accessory that is powered by the MedX Console. The Class IIIb laser provides 450 mW of power with 3 GaAlAs laser diodes and a visible guide light.

The hand-held laser is programmed through the console. This allows the faster, deeper penetrating laser to be activated and reactivated to treat multiple locations, while the SLD clusters are delivering the programmed dose for a more effective treatment protocol.

SLD Cluster

The larger area SLD cluster provides a combination of predominantly infrared (870 nm) with visible red (633nm) energy. The SLD cluster covers a large surface area of 2.56 cm², or approximately 2 square inches. The broader area and even distribution of photon energy increases local circulation and lymphatics as well as promotes greater systemic effects.

The two SLD clusters can be attached with Velcro straps for hands-free application, allowing unattended treatment. Alternatively, the clinician can utilize the laser simultaneously. Once treatment has been completed the clusters emit an audible sound and automatically turn off.

MedX Rehab Portable Laser

The MedX Rehab Portable Laser provides a total power of 450 mW of infrared energy that utilizes three 150 mW, 808nm GaAlAs laser diodes, plus a visible blue guide LED.
