BioFlex Laser User Review
Pain Pain go away. Do not come back another day!
I have been suffering chronic foot pain caused by plantar fasciitis for over a year. If you have never suffered from plantar fasciitis, consider yourself lucky!
Two months ago I was at my chiropractor for treatment of my plantar fasciitis and he mentioned that he had successfully used BioFlex Laser Therapy while treating the injuries of a professional sports team. He had seen some extremely fast results in reducing pain and inflammation with a BioFlex Laser.
I spoke to my GP about BioFlex Laser treatment, and she agreed that it would be a good option for me to try. She also knew my chiropractor and trusted his opinion for treatment options. (I would recommend that you speak to your doctor before trying this product to make sure that the product is right for you).
I work at Healthwick, a company that rents out BioFlex Lasers. Ready to try just about anything to get rid of the daily pain I was living with, I borrowed one from work.
When I got it home and opened the case, I was surprised at how small it was. It had a hand unit, 2 paddles (yellow and black), some straps and a power cord. I was a little intimidated at first, but as soon as I started reading the instruction booklet, I realized how easy it was to use.
The BioFlex Laser has a very user friendly menu that helped me choose the area of the body to work on and which intensity level to start with. I started at level 1 as recommended. I placed the yellow paddle on the bottom of my foot and used the straps to secure it in place. I then turned it on and followed the on-screen prompts. The yellow paddle lights up bright red and warms the area being treated. The hand unit beeps halfway through treatment with the yellow paddle to let you know to adjust the paddle slightly to ensure you treat the whole area.
The black paddle (used after the yellow paddle) is where the real magic happens. The infrared light emitted from this paddle helps to speed up healing. As with the yellow paddle, the hand unit beeps to adjust the paddle once during treatment.
Before I knew it, the treatment was over. The BioFlex Laser treatment soothed my pain from the first use, but it was after day two that I really noticed a difference. After a month of daily use (approximately 30 mins/day) I wasn’t experiencing pain anymore!
The BioFlex Laser was honestly a game changer in terms of drastically improving my quality of life. Two months on, pain from plantar fasciitis is a thing of the past.
