|Active Sports Therapy uses laser systems designed by MedX Health. 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 phototherapy solutions that are FDA cleared and Health Canada licenced. 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 Phototherapy 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.
|When cells are exposed to photon energy, cellular charges are induced to change the cell homeostasis. This entails a cascade of reactions influencing a number of components of the respiratory chain. (i.e. cytochromes and cytochrome oxidase) which are the primary photo acceptors or chromophores, resulting in absorption of therapeutic wavelengths. This causes short term activation of the respiratory chain, leading to changes in redox status and in turn the activation of enhanced synthesis of ATP. The photons also affect hydrogen ion levels in the cell, in combination with increased ATP, affects the cell permeability and flow of sodium, potassium, and calcium. These changes are necessary to control the proliferative activity of the cell.|
