How long will it take before I start to feel results?
Depending on the needs and duration of treatments, many patients see results quickly. The short-term effect is significant in 5-10% of patients during or after the initial treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
One of the greatest benefits of Laser therapy is that it is tailored to fit your specific condition. The response of your body will determine how many treatments you need. We work with you to measure your progress. We continually assess your body’s response to determine what adjustments will improve your customized treatment. Our objective is to provide the best possible care in the least number of visits. Once therapy begins, we can determine more accurately how many treatments you will need. In most cases, we expect to see some change in symptoms after three to five visits, but a more prolonged period of treatment may be required.

How can Laser therapy succeed when other therapy methods have failed?
Laser therapy is an innovative therapy founded on long years of study and discovery. Unlike the reactive traditional methods that aims at symptomatic relief, Laser therapy takes a proactive approach that directly affects the structural problems which are producing the symptoms. Bioflex laser therapy treats this damage at the source to diminish/eradicate pain and restore normal anatomical continuity of the tissue.
How does Laser therapy differ from current healthcare practices?
Over-reliant health authority can make it easy to shift responsibility for our own health to other people, devices or medication. Many people have found, that over time, medication is not enough. Chronic pain and other conditions will persist or worsen until they are properly treated and resolved. Laser therapy treats the source of the problem and places you, the patient, at the center of the therapy. When you take responsibility for your health, you can re-prioritize your body’s needs and address the real problem.
