Theralase: Non-thermal Therapeutic Laser

Theralase non-thermal therapeutic laser is a new tool that can be found here at DHT. Essentially, it is a laser that doesn’t use heat but photons of light at specific wavelengths. The light that is entered into the body is absorbed at a cellular level and is turned into chemical energy. As a result, the body uses this energy to repair its injured tissue. This laser decreases pain and inflammation all while increasing healing and cell growth.

In addition, the benefits are as follows:

  • Increases cell growth and reproduction
  • Increases healing time
  • Reduces swelling of joints, therefore increasing range of motion
  • Reduces scar tissue formation
  • Increases blood flow of the body to the damaged tissues
  • Increased nerve cell reconnection. This brings numb areas of tissue back to life
  • Increased production of ATP

While most lasers use heat, the Theralase laser is non-thermal. It doesn’t use heat which takes away the risk of burning or damaging tissue. Especially relevant, this laser works with the individual. It is able to analyze the corresponding tissue. From there it is able to deliver the optimal wavelength each time. A unique quality of the laser is its ability to have the body heal itself. As a result of the wavelengths converting to chemical energy, the body’s cellular systems work on healing. It works on reducing swelling, pain and increase cell healing and growth. Because of this, the Theralase laser is truly one of a kind. It provides efficient healing to a variety of conditions.

This laser helps with, but is not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic neck, shoulder, back and hip pain
  • Strains
  • Golfers/Tennis elbow
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Capsulitis
  • Nerve conditions
  • Sprains
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Ligamentous injuries
  • Wounds

Treatment time will depend solely on your condition and its severity. It will be up to your therapist to advise. Lastly, for more information, feel free to contact or visit the clinic to speak with a practitioner and look at a brochure.
