What is Cold Laser Therapy (Low Level Laser Therapy)?
Simply put, a Cold Laser is a medical device (approved by Health Canada and the FDA) that does not cut or burn the skin when applied. Cold Lasers have been used for over 40 years in 3000+ hospitals, 10,000+ health clinics, and in over 70 countries around the world. Its effectiveness as a pain reduction intervention for many different conditions has been demonstrated in in thousands of scientific papers.
Treatment with a Cold Laser is a simple, safe, and non-invasive process that has little or no side effects or contraindications. It improves tissue repair, speeds healing, and reduces pain and inflammation where ever the beam of light is directed. Around the world, treatment with Cold Lasers is rapidly becoming a medical therapy proving to be an important addition to the current medical protocols for many acute and chronic conditions.
“The use of low levels of visible or near infrared light for reducing pain, inflammation and edema, promoting healing of wounds, deeper tissues and nerves, and preventing cell death an tissue damage has been known for over forty years.”
Prof. Michael Hamblin, Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology
Our Theralase Class 3b laser works by supplying energy to the body in the form of billions of photons of light. The dual wavelength super pulsing technology is the only laser that can penetrate up to 4” into tissue activating the cellular pathways that decrease inflammation and pain while increasing the natural healing properties of the body.
