Our state-of-the-art Laser Therapy modality is made by Theralase.
Imagine the surprise when researchers learned that certain light frequencies could actually reduce inflammation and enhance the healing process!
When patients learn that we use laser therapy in our practice, they have visions of a powerful, steel-cutting beam of light. The “cold” laser we use has only a tiny fraction of the power. Instead, its value comes from the frequency of the light it emits, not its intensity.
How Does It Work?
The above video explains the technology in a simple and easy to understand format. How can certain frequencies of light speed up or slow down biological processes is ? Many theories have been suggested, but from practical application with real patients, we know it works for:
- Wound healing
- Inflammation reduction
- Pain management
- Cell regeneration
- Scar tissue reduction
While scientists debate the mechanism by which low level laser works and publish their work in the scientific literature, our patients are just delighted that it works!
What are the Benefits of Laser Therapy?
Reduction of Inflammation
Enhance Immune System
Significantly Reduced Healing Time of Muscle/Tendon/Ligament Injury
At our Oakville Injury & Pain Relief Clinic our Therapeutic Laser Treatments provide patients with a safe, effective, affordable, and painless therapy that uses the body’s natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility & tissue integrity, and promote cell regeneration.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy uses a source of light placed in contact with the skin allowing photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with the cell. The cellular effect includes increased local circulation, improved tissue oxygenation and stimulation of the production of cellular energy allowing tissue to heal faster.
Is Cold Laser Therapy Safe?
World wide research to date has not recorded any negative effects from laser therapy. Laser therapy has been approved by Health Canada, the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the CSA (Canadian Standards Association).
