Over 2000 clinical studies worldwide have proven the success of therapeutic lasers in the healing of neural muscular-skeletal conditions. At Advantage Laser Clinic, we use the Theralase low level laser for pain management. The Theralase Laser is state of the art laser which is FDA approved for treating chronic pain.
Our goal is to provide patients with safe, effective and painless laser therapy that uses the body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity and promote cell regeneration.
Some popular conditions treated include:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Heel Pain
- Sprains & Strains
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Hip Pain
- Wound Healing
- Shoulder pain
The Theralase laser works by supplying energy to the body in the form of billions of photons of light. The body absorbs this laser light on a cellular level and transforms it into chemical energy, which the body then uses to commence its own tissue repairs. The biostimulating effect of laser therapy causes a decrease in inflammation and pain and an increase in tissue regeneration and healing.
Benefits of using the Theralase cold laser technology includes…
Rapid Cell Growth: Laser light accelerates reproduction and growth.
Faster Wound Healing: There are 3 phases in wound healing (inflammation, proliferation and remodelling). Laser light accelerates these different phases by reducing inflammation, increasing fibroblast synthesis and angiogenesis (production of capillaries) which leads to collagen production.
Anti-inflammatory Action: Inflammation is caused by blood and serum rushing into the damaged area giving rise to visible oedema and pressure related pain in addition to the injury related pain. Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to provide enhanced joint mobility.
Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, sctraches, burns or post surgery scars.
Increased Metabolic Activity: Higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
Increased Vascular Activity: Laser light induces temporary vasodilation increasing blood flow to damaged areas.
Stimulated Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in numb limbs or areas. Laser light speeds up the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life.
Each treatment takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. The total number of treatments varies as well from 5 to 25 depending on the body’s natural healing rate and the severity of the condition. Efficacy rates in excess of 90% are routinely achieved. To find out if low level laser therapy is suitable for you, call us to schedule a complimentary consultation.
