BL Health & Performance is utilizing, LightForce® Therapy Lasers, to address pain and inflammation! Class IV Laser technology utilizes light energy to accelerate your body’s own natural healing processes to help speed up recovery and get you back into your activity.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process called Photobiomodulation, (PBM). During PBM, photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism, decrease in pain, reduction in muscle spasm, and improved microcirculation to injured tissue.
Laser therapy is used to treat acute and chronic conditions as well as post-activity recovery. It is also used as another option to prescription drugs, a tool to prolong the need for some surgeries, as well as pre and post surgery treatment to help control pain and swelling.
Laser therapy for acute conditions, has been shown to be largely effective (bearing there is no active hemorrhaging), when implemented as soon as possible, preceding and injury. Bringing pain under control quickly helps the healing process and usually helps promote better outcomes.
With chronic conditions, research has shown that therapy lasers can be used to help combat persistent pain and promote circulation to damaged tissues. It can be a powerful, non-pharmaceutical solution to help reduce pain without the side effects of medication.
Laser therapy has been shown to be effective at improving post-activity recovery times and reducing (DOMS) delayed onset muscle soreness. Widely used in the world of college and professional sports. As well Olympians selecting this method, which helps them all recover quick and have effective results.

Treatments are fast, safe, and painless. Most patients see results in 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Each application will take 5-15 mins, pending on the treatment needed. Successful treatment programs require multiple treatments, the number of weeks depend on the condition and severity of symptoms.
