Cold Laser Therapy
A new, modern non-surgical therapy, Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a holistic therapy treatment that provides specific wavelengths of light to interact with cells in the tissue. It is thought the biochemical reaction turns ADP to ATP (charging up a cell) and the energy provided to the mitochondria in the cell starts the process of RNA to DNA replication, stimulating the body to heal itself. This non-invasive holistic therapy can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, soft tissue swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality mobility.
How Do Cold Lasers Work?
Cold lasers are placed directly over the injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the dose provided by the cold laser unit. During this time, the non-thermal photons of light that are emitted from the laser pass through the skin’s layers – the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin.
The Next Generation of Technology
Theralase’s current system offers 100,000 mW of power while it superpulses 905 nm NIR and 660 nm visible red lasers. It can penetrate up to five inches into tissues. With true laser diodes, 100% of its light energy is directed to the site of the injury. Healing is accelerated by reducing pain and inflammation while staying below the maximal permissible exposure limit for tissue. Each patient’s treatment is customized to ensure that they are receiving the optimal dosage of laser energy. To achieve this, Theralase employs over 100 customizable pre-programmed treatment protocols that use each patient’s unique physical and biometric information.
