Do you suffer from chronic pain throughout your day? Do you have to take medication everyday just to function?

The most common form of arthritis is degenerative osteoarthritis, affecting approximately 80% of the population by the age of 65.

Cold Laser Therapy uses light energy which penetrates the tissue and converts it to bio-chemical energy. It’s effect is at the mitochondrial level of the cell giving the cell energy thereby increasing the healing effect for regeneration and repair.

The bioflex laser that we use at the Semiahmoo Wellness Center in South Surrey/White Rock is a non invasive, non-toxic therapy that works great for both acute and chronic conditions. We have experienced great success with osteoarthritis of the hip, knees, and spine.
