Uxbridge Chiropractic Theralase


Theralase lasers work by supplying energy to the body in the form of billions of photons of light.

The body absorbs this laser light on a cellular level and transforms it into chemical energy, which the body then uses to commence its’ own tissue repairs. The biostimulating effect of laser therapy causes a decrease in inflammation and pain and an increase in tissue regeneration and healing.

More information about Theralase.

Theralase laser therapy is safe, effective and painless, with results which are often immediate with no side effects. Efficiency rates in excess of 90% are routinely acheived.

Benefits of using Theralase:

  • Rapid cell growth – accelerates cellular reproduction and growth
  • Faster Wound Healing – stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action – reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to provide enhanced joint mobility
  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation – reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or post-surgery
  • Increased Metabolic Activity – produces higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells: Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)
  • Increased Vascular Activity – induces temporary vasodilation increasing blood flow to damaged areas
  • Stimulated Nerve Function – speeds up the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas or “dead limbs” caused by slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue back to life.

Some frequently asked questions about Theralase laser therapy

What scientific documentation is there?

Over 3,000 clinical studies worldwide have proven the success of therapeutic lasers in the healing of neutral muscular-skeletal conditions. Theralase has performed a blinded randomized controlled study on chronic knee pain proving the clinical safety and the efficiency of the Theralase therapeutic laser technology and achieving FDA 5109K approval.

How deep into the tissue can a laser penetrate?

Theralase’s dual wavelength super pulsing technology is the only laser that penetrates up to 4″ into tissue activiating all three know cellular pathways.

  1. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Pathway: Accelerates healing
  2. Nitric Oxide (NO) Pathway: Reduces inflammation
  3. Lipid Absorption Pathway: Decreases pain
What is the difference between normal light and laser light?

When laser light interacts with tissue it causes certain photochemical reactions to occur and stimulate natural biological healing processes, thus transforming light energy into chemical energy need for tissue repair.

Do Theralase lasers burn?

No. There are two general types of medical lasers: heat generating lasers which cut through tissue and damage tissue and cold lasers such as Theralase, which stimulate tissue repair, reduce inflammation and eliminate pain.

How long does the therapy take?

Treatment time will vary from as little as 2 minutes to as long as 20 minutes per session. The total number of treatment sessions required varies between 5 to 25 depending on your body’s natural healing rate and severity of your condition.

Will it work for my pain?

Theralase is a proven medical device that safely and effectively stimulates deep tissue regeneration and relieves pain and inflammation.
