High Power Laser Therapy offers pain relief through a process known as photobiostimulation. Prompted by a dose of deep penetrating photonic energy, your body produces increased amounts of ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate), the substance responsible for cellular energy production. The increase level of ATP lead to improved circulation, reduced inflammation, and utlmately, a facilitated healing process.

As laser light energy is highly absorbed by skin and subcutaneous tissue, penetration is key to a successful therapeutic outcome. Longer wavelengths and higher power output result in deeper penetration and higher dosage to the tissue. More powerful therapeutic laser energy dosage levels produce improved clinical outcomes as illustrated in many cases and interventional studies. High Power lasers have been shown to provide both the wavelength and output power levels necessary to trigger therapeutic cellular metabolic changes.
Application of High Power Laser Therapy treatment using appropriate scientific therapy protocols provides demonstrated clinical therapeutic benefits to patients in a real-world environment for a wide variety of both acute and chronic conditions, regardless of age or gender.

“Before, I had much pain in my knees. Walking, every step in each leg was painful, and my knee joints sometimes slipped. After four treatments, I had less pain in my knees, and I go eight blocks every morning. Four blocks to a restaurant & four blocks back with no pain. I have mentioned my treatment to several people at the restaurant.”
“When I came to the centre. I could walk only a short distance before I sat down. While walking, both knees hurt (pain level 8 or 9) also my back would hurt. I could not stand for longer than one minute. NOW I find it easier to walk, my pain level is about 2, and my back is more comfortable. I can stand five to ten minutes. I can lift up my feet while walking, and not slide my feet on the floor. Overall a very good experience. The receptionist was always friendly and helpful. Thank you!”

“I live in Blind Bay, B.C, just west of Salmon Arm, BC. I read about Disc Clinic BC in the Vancouver Sun after several years with a bad disc in my neck. I experienced numbness in my arm, pain and a constant tingle in my hand and fingers, that would keep me from having a good night sleep. I came in for a consultation with the Dr. and he explained about the treatments in details. After several treatments my pain and numbness in my hand was gone and I could have a good night sleep. I am pleased with the results and the treatment that I have received. I would recommend this treatment to other people who suffered from disc pain.”
“I was in Vancouver one day doing a small job and had stopped to have coffee and browse the newspaper. I came across this article regarding Dr. Ting and his treatments. All sounded very good to me but in the back of my mind I was a bit skeptical about the whole thing. I have had lower back pain for quite sometime and always in constant pain, leg aches and tingling sensations. After reading Dr Ting’s article I thought to myself, what have I got to lose. I picked up my cell phone and called to make an appointment. The ad said free evaluation and Dr Ting thought that I would be a good candidate for his treatments. We went ahead with a standard course of twenty treatments. I could not believe that my pain had lessened so much from the beginning. Each one my pain had decreased. Today I’m on my 15th treatment and I feel so much better.”
“It’s been quite a journey at this clinic. The first five treatments didn’t convince me about the procedure. I didn’t realize that the pain in my lower back and leg was getting less. After ten I had better function of my leg and less pain. I have just had my twentieth treatment. I will say today that I am not totally pain free, but with each day it gets better. My pain is minimal, and I am totally satisfied with my time here. I recommend this treatment and this clinic.”
“I have gone from being in extreme pain and/or discomfort 80% of my life to only 10-15% of the time. Dr Ting is extremely proficient in his field. I would highly recommend this procedure and Dr Ting to anyone in pain.”
“When I came to Dr. Ting there was a lot of numbness in my right leg (calf area outside on the right side). There wasn’t much pain in the back, mostly just discomfort. I have been seeing, on a regular basis, a chiropractor- Dec 11 to the end of July 2012. The treatment with Dr. Ting has caused the numbness in right leg to decrease by about 80%. Back discomfort and nerve pain in both back and right leg has gotten much better. I’m not rubbing my right leg anymore to get feeling back into it. Staffs have been friendly and accommodating. I’m sleeping better and I am starting to exercise and walking for longer distance and time. I’m from Tsawwassen, B.C.”
