Laser Therapy

We are proud to offer laser therapy using the Theralase laser.

The Theralase laser is unmatched in the industry. We penetrate further, heal faster, and relieve your suffering; sometimes after only minutes of treatment.

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.

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.

Theralase's dual wavelength super pulsing technology is the only laser that penetrates up to 4" into tissue activating all three known cellular pathways

  1. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Pathway: Accelerates Healing
  2. Nitric Oxide (NO) Pathway: Reduces Inflammation
  3. Lipid Absorption Pathway: Decreases Pain

Theralase lasers offer treatment for acute and chronic pain conditions, addictions, and cosmetic revitalization. Our lasers help you regain the active and healthy lifestyle you yearn for by utilizing the power of light energy.

Over 3,000 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.

Common Treatable Conditions

Neuromuscular Skeletal conditions are common in all of us. We can all experience sprains, strains and pain that just won't go away resulting from repetitive strains in our work place or from trauma in our everyday lives. Pain and inflammation are things we've grown to accept as something we probably will just have to live with. Medical practitioners across North America have discovered a modern medical technology that heals injuries safely and effectively on a cellular level. This medical technology is the Theralase line of therapeutic medical laser systems. 

The Theralase superpulsed laser system can penetrate up to 4 inches into tissue, to promote cellular regeneration at the source of injury. Laser energy helps to repair damaged cells by accelerating the body's natural healing mechanisms. Depending on the severity of the injury, you can return to an active lifestyle pain-free within a few weeks versus months or years of life altering pain. 

Benefits of using Laser Therapy

A proven medical device that safely and effectively stimulates deep tissue regeneration and relieves pain and inflammation.

Rapid Cell Growth

Laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.

Faster Wound Healing

Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue.

Anti-Inflammatory Action

Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to provide enhanced joint mobility.

Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation

Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns, or post surgery.

Increased Metabolic Activity

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

Laser light induces temporary vasodilation increasing blood flow to damaged areas.

Stimulated Nerve Function

Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in "dead" limbs or numb areas. Laser light speeds up the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Theralase lasers burn?

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

Are Theralase lasers harmful?

No. Theralase lasers used for tissue stimulation are not strong enough to damage cells; so even if they were used 24 hours a day, they would not be able to harm you.

Do Theralase lasers work?

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

How do Theralase lasers work?

When laser light interacts with tissue it causes certain photochemical reactions to occur and stimulates natural biological healing processes.

How long does the therapy take?

Treatment time will vary from as little as 2 minutes to as long as 20 minutes. The total number of treatments required varies between 5 to 25 depending on the body's natural healing rate and the severity of the condition.

Testimonials

I use the Theralase laser to keep my throwing arm healthy. It reduces fatigue and allows me to play at my peak game after game after game.

Baseball Player Roy Halladay (2003 Cy Young Award)

I feel compelled to let it be known how successful Laser Therapy has been in reducing swelling and pain of Osteo-Arthritis in my right hand and fingers.

During the past years, I have been prescribed many medications, none of which reduced the swelling and pain satisfactorily.

After four to five sessions of Laser Therapy, there was an extremely noticeable reduction in swelling.  It was now almost pain free and because of the increased flexibility of my fingers, I was able to resume activities which for a long time had not been possible.  The Laser Therapy sessions are quick and completely painless and do not have the dangerous side effects I had previously experienced with medications.

About 12 years ago I fell coming down some steps.  As a result of the fall, I dislocated

my left shoulder and fractured my lower humerus.  The shoulder was splinted from the top of the fingers to the top of the shoulder.  After the splint was removed, I had a great amount of

physiotherapy and even acupuncture, but the shoulder continued to be achy.  I found it difficult to rest my weight on my arm when I sat at my desk.  I constantly felt like I carried a 100 lb. weight on my shoulder.  I endured the pain and discomfort for 12 years, until recently.

A few months ago, a friend suggested I should try Theralase low level laser therapy.  After a consultation with their Chiropractor and Physiotherapist, I received 6 treatments with 905 nm, 100 mW near infrared laser at the Theralase Pain and Arthritis Centre.  By the 6th treatment, my shoulder felt normal.  There was absolutely no heat sensation or discomfort during the treatments and the treatments were only a few minutes long.

It has been a couple of month since my last treatment and my shoulder continues to feel just fine.  The experience has been like a miracle
