Laser Pain Therapy

Elite Ortho Care uses laser therapy to drastically improve the quality of life for those who experience inflammation, pain, have sports injuries and in rehabilitative conditions.

The Med X Laser system offers natural, effective, non invasive, drug free phototherapy solutions that are Food and Drug Administration approved and has no side effects. Applying light produced by lower level laser and super luminous diodes triggers normal cellular function that lead to faster wound healing, pain relief and accelerated functional recovery.

At EOC, we have a staff of licensed health professionals to administer the Laser Pain Therapy. The cost of the treatment is typically covered under your healthcare plan.

Most common conditions treated with Laser/Phototherapy:

• Sciatica 

• Headaches 


• Herniated disc

• Tennis elbow


• Back pain

• Arthritis 


• Sports injuries

• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 


• Sprains 

• Rotator cuff 


• Plantarfasciitis/ Foot issues 

• Bursitis

Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.

How does MedX Phototherapy work? When the photons of light penetrate the skin and underlying tissue, they are absorbed by the cell, and converted into energy, thereby the cell membrane permeability is altered, and this triggers a cascade of cellular events including:

• Stimulation of ATP

• Stimulation of respiratory chain

• Increased DNA and RNA synthesis

• Increased levels of beta endorphins and serotonin

• Enhanced collagen synthesis

How is phototherapy treatment administered?

MedX Laser/Phototherapy devices are positioned directly on the skin with gentle pressure applied. Generally there is no discomfort or sensation associated with treatment. Various areas may be treated including:

• Directly over the lesion or site of injury

• Muscle insertion

• Relevant trigger points or tender points

• Nerve roots or superficial nerve trucks

Does phototherapy affect only the area being treated?

The affects of MedX Phototherapy treatment can be:

Local: with a direct benefit over the affected injury.

Regional: with positive effects seen in the surrounding tissue.

Systemic: broader effects evident through increased cell membrane permeability and chemical mediators carried in the blood, lymphatic and nervous systems.

Laser therapy allows your body to utilize its own healing powers by inducing a series of healing responses in your body. During treatment you will feel soothing warmth that identifies the beginning of an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation.
