First developed over 30 years ago, phototherapy uses a specific type of light to penetrate the skin’s surface and underlying tissues to stimulate the body’s natural repair processes. The result is faster healing, reduced inflammation, and pain relief.

  • 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 Health Canada licensed and FDA approved. Applying light produced by a low level laser and super luminous 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 and 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.
