Physiotherapy is a drug-free healthcare practice dedicated to the improvement and maintenance of functional independence and physical performance. Our physiotherapists are able to promote fitness, health and wellness by treating, preventing and managing pain, physical impairments and disabilities.
Our treatment approach includes a combination of laser therapy, manual therapy, therapeutic exercises and mobilization, sometimes in combination with recommendations for services supporting healing such as massage therapy and orthotics. These services are helpful toward maintaining overall health and wellness in addition to addressing immediate healing needs.
We couple active therapy sessions with laser therapy to maximize the benefits provided. It is an essential component of treatment to build strength, returning patients to their pre-injury activity level, and to minimize the potential for re-injury. When our patients are capable of increasing their activity level, our clinicians gently introduce therapeutic exercises to improve range of motion, muscle balancing and strengthening in order to avoid re-injury. Our goal is to maximize functional ability and to return patients to normal, pain-free activities.
Many patients who have tried a variety of drugs and treatments, including surgery, with little or no significant improvement, have shown demonstrable improvement under the care of Lightspeed Rehabilitation clinicians.
LILT or Low Intensity Laser Therapy, combined with traditional physiotherapy, mobilization and strengthening, delivers remarkable results.
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT), also known as photobiomodulation, helps restore normal cellular function while enhancing the body’s natural healing processes by delivering light energy (photons) to the cells. The mitochondria in the cells can then convert this photonic energy into chemical energy to assist in the natural healing process, expediting rehabilitation and recovery. Laser therapy increases circulation, lymphatic drainage and provides the cells the energy they need to repair.
We use LILT for physiotherapy because it is scientifically proven to help the body heal itself naturally, without chemicals or drugs.
There are over 2,000 research papers on the effectiveness and therapeutic benefit of laser therapy. We develop individualized, laser therapy treatment protocols with complementary physiotherapy modalities based on this research to benefit the healing and wellness of our client base.
Sample conditions we can effectively treat:
The BioFlex System
Our clinical team at Lightspeed Rehabilitation uses the BioFlex Professional Laser Therapy System exclusively. The BioFlex laser therapy system was developed by a Canadian surgeon, Dr. Fred Kahn, and is one of the most sophisticated laser therapy systems available. The BioFlex system has been used for the past fifteen years by thousands of people of all ages, including professional sports athletes.
The BioFlex laser therapy system we use has 3 stages. Each stage has a different wavelength of light resulting in a different dosage based on computer controlled dosimetry to facilitate patient rehabilitation.
Software monitors and regulates the output of the treatment heads to ensure optimum treatment is delivered each time. The combination of these elements constitutes a unique and pain free treatment prescription or protocol for each of our patients that produces a highly effective therapeutic benefit when compared with traditional physiotherapy modalities.
Each session will take about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on what condition we are treating.
Visit the BioFlex laser therapy website for more information about the system.
