Phototherapy is also known as light and laser therapy; a safe and highly effective treatment method that offers a rapid, drug free, non invasive healing solution that enhances patient outcomes by accelerating tissue healing, reducing pain and decreasing edema and inflammation.
The MedX Phototherapy Treatment System is used to enhance patient outcomes and our quality of care. It has been recognized through history that sun and light energy have beneficial effects on the human body. MedX Health has developed innovative techniques and devices that harness these positive light elements and offer you an effective, rapid, drug-free, non-invasive healing solution.
By incorporating these treatments, patients will experience improved treatment results for a number of conditions such as:
- Pulls, strains and muscle injuries
- Head, neck and back pain
- Post operative wounds
- Carpel tunnel
- Tendonitis and many other conditions
While you comfortably relax, therapeutic light energy can be effectively administered to one or more of your injured areas with our safe, low-level laser or cluster accessories. The average treatment takes 5-15 minutes. The MedX system can be used on patients of all ages and can be safely administered directly over pacemakers, implanted defribillators, shunts or plastic/metal implants.
Light therapy is similar to photosynthesis in plants; sunlight is absorbed by the plant and converted into energy that the plant uses to grow. Developed over 35 years ago, this therapy is a remarkable process that uses light to penetrate the skin's surface and underlying tissues. It provides light energy to your body's cells to increase their function and to stimulate your body's natural healing process, safely and easily.
For some conditions, this innovative, therapeutic healing method often eliminates the need for painful, debilitating surgeries and drug therapies which are usually accompanied by harmful side effects. MedX can be used as an exclusive treatment solution or can be used in combination with other healing methods provided by your clinic. It has proven very effective for conditions that are difficult to treat.
There are no known side effects of light therapy. Hundreds of scientific studies have proven it a safe and highly effective way to treat a variety of conditions. MedX Phototherapy is FDA and CSA certified and uses superluminous diode (SLD) clusters and classes IIIb laser technology. MedX products are used by practitioners in clinics, academic facilities and hospitals as well as by professional athletes.
