Theraputic Laser Treatment, also called low level laser therapy or cold laser therapy, is used to treat neural musculoskeletal conditions by injecting billions of photons of visible and non visible light deep into underlying tissue. Cells contain certain properties which have the unique ability to absorb laser light energy and transform it into chemical energy, similar to photosynthesis in plants. The biostimulating effects of laser therapy include:
There are over 2,000 clinical studies that have proven the success of therapeutic lasers. Lasers are non invasive; have no side effects as cells cannot be over stimulated; are safe as with no heat production, there is no tissue damage; and have few contraindications. We use the Theralase TLC-1000 laser, which is Health Canada approved and with its super pulsed ability, is effective in penetrating tissue 4 inches below the skin.
