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.
Exploring the Healing Effects of MedX Phototherapy
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.
Some of the unique healing effects of MedX Phototherapy include:
Increased cell metabolism
Improved localized blood circulation
Development of collagen and muscle tissue
Relief from acute and chronic pain
Reduced localized inflammation and edema
Stimulation for wound healing and tissue repair
Stimulation of the immune system
Stimulation of nerve function
Conditions That Can Benefit from MedX Phototherapy Treatment
Research demonstrates that phototherapy can be used to effectively treat many conditions. Simulating the body's natural repair processes using the healing nature of light has been proven particularly effective for certain conditions including:
The safety of patients must always be the first priority. Phototherapy is an effective, non-invasive, drug-free solution that has been used for over 30 years and is supported by over 3,000 clinical papers. MedX Health designs, develops and distributes innovative low level laser and phototherapy technology that has been tested for safety and effectiveness and has been cleared and licenced for use in North America.
The technology has gone through stringent testing. It has been cleared for sale or licenced by the following regulatory bodies:
