Theralase® Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Theralase is one of the finest lasers on the market. Many clinics offer laser, but not all have high quality devices. This is the reason Theralase is used by many professional sports teams and Olympic athletes world-wide. It can penetrate up to 4” deep.
Theralase® therapeutic laser treatments provide patients with a safe, effective and painless therapy that uses the body’s own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity and promote cell regeneration. It can be used for acute injuries like ankle sprains, tendonitis, and even fractures, but also for chronic cases like arthritis, disc degeneration and scar tissue.
Over 4,000 clinical studies worldwide have proven the success of therapeutic lasers in the healing of neural muscular-skeletal conditions*. Theralase® has performed a blinded randomized control study on chronic knee pain proving the clinical efficacy of Theralase® therapeutic laser technology and achieving FDA 510(k) approval for chronic knee pain.
Theralase® laser systems produce photons that are absorbed by tissue triggering a host of biological responses designed to eliminate pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing. Unlike Class 4 laser systems, Theralase® technology does not generate heat and therefore does not pose a risk of damaging or burning tissue. Theralase® laser systems are pain-free, drug-free, non-toxic, and non-invasive, with no known side effects.
Theralase® dual-wavelength low-level laser therapy systems eliminate pain at the source by rebalancing the sodium-potassium pump (i.e., the flow of sodium and potassium ions across the cell membrane), to eliminate the transmission of pain across the nerve.
Theralase® treatments often generate immediate results and routinely produce efficacy rates of over 90%. More than 4,000 clinical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of low-level laser therapy.
Photons delivered by Theralase® low-level laser therapy systems activate the Nitric Oxide (NO) pathway, significantly increasing the production of NO, a potent vasodilator. Vasodilation promotes increased blood flow to injured/damaged tissue, thereby helping to reduce inflammation and swelling.
A Powerful Alternative for Pain Management
Theralase® low-level laser treatments are a safe and effective alternative to oral analgesics (including Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen/Tylenol), corticosteroid injections, opiate pain medications (including OxyContin and Oxycodone that have the potential to be highly addictive, relatively toxic, and prone to overdose), and surgery. Drug-free and pain-free, Theralase® treatments minimize recovery times without any known side effects or discomfort to patients.
Theralase® low-level laser therapy activates the Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) pathway within the mitochondria of the cell. The increased production of ATP provides more cellular energy for injured or damaged cells to initiate and accelerate the tissue repair process.
Using individual patients’ physical characteristics and biometric information, Theralase® laser therapy systems can be used to customize treatment protocols, thereby optimizing therapeutic results.
