Pain Management With Cold Laser Therapy
COLD LASER THERAPY
LLLT has an anti-oedemic effect, as it causes vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system to drain interstitial fluid (drains swollen areas).
As a result of reduced inflammation, there is less oedema and therefore less pain. LLLT stimulates vasodilation and lymphatic drainage, which increases the reabsorption of pain-causing products. LLLT delivers 905 nm superpulsed infrared wavelength light, which is absorbed by the bi-lipid layer comprising the cellular membrane and thus regulates the nerve cell's sodium-potassium pump. This pump maintains the potential across the membrane of a nerve cell, which leads to pain transmission signals. By regulating the pump, transmission of pain signals from the area can be eliminated
No clinically tested modality is proven to be more effective for arthritis. While arthritis is a chronic condition without a cure, Theralase therapeutic laser treatments can provide substantial relief from symptoms by reducing inflammation of the joints, eliminating pain, increasing range of motion of the joints and improving immune cell production and efficiency.
Theralase lasers reduce inflammation in arthritis-affected joints by stimulating the lymphatic system, which drains interstitial fluid from tissues located in the injured area. Laser treatments also regenerate immune cells (lymphocytes). The lymphatic system carries these lymphocytes to the injured area where they excrete bioenergy used to destroy infection. When Theralase empowers the lymphocytes, each cell releases more bioenergy making it a better combatant.
A Theralase super pulsed laser has the unique ability to penetrate tissue up to 4" below the dermis - 5 times further than our closest competitor - treating deep chronic arthritis conditions commonly found in the knees and shoulders
Laser treatments accelerate each of the three phases associated with the natural healing of wounds: inflammation, proliferation and remodeling. The result is a reduction in pain, inflammation reduction, increased stimulation of connective tissue (granulation tissue) and increased capillary production (angiogenesis) leading to improved blood flow during proliferation.
Efficacy rates up to 90%
Theralase Laser therapy is safe, effective and painless, with results which are often immediate with no side effects. Efficacy rates in excess of 90% are routinely achieved
Eliminate pain / Reduce inflammation
Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to provide enhanced joint mobility. Safely and effectively stimulates deep tissue regeneration and relieves pain and inflammation
Non toxic / No side effects
Theralase Laser therapy is non toxic and painless, with results which are often immediate with no side effects.
Non invasive and extremely safe
Theralase Laser therapy is non-invasive, the lasers used for tissue stimulation are not strong enough to damage cells; so even if they were used 24 hours a day, they would not be able to cause any harm.
Faster wound healing and closure
Reduces the formation of scar tissue following damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery and allows the reabsorption of fibrotic tissue already formed through biostimulation of collagen during the remodeling phase of healing.
Theralase Laser therapy system contains up to 70 clinically proven pre-programmed treatments and can retain up to 256 patient protocols in memory.
Over 70 pre-programmed treatments
Each treatment ranges anywhere from a few minutes to 30 minutes, depending on the nature of the condition. Regular treatments are ideal for proper treatment and healing. The number of treatments varies with each condition. Low-level laser therapy is considered to be one of the safest treatments available today.
