Do Theralase Lasers Hurt or Burn?
No. There are, in general, two kinds of lasers that are used for medical purposes. There are heat-based lasers that generate heat to damage and cut through tissues. Then, there are cold lasers that eliminate pain, reduce inflammation, and stimulate tissue repair. Theralase lasers are cold lasers and cause no harm to the body whatsoever.
Are Theralase Lasers Harmful?
No. Even if these lasers were continually applied on your condition for days on end, they would not damage your body or cause you pain. This is because they are cold lasers and they do not have enough power to do anything other than treat your pain and inflammation.
Do Theralase Lasers Work Effectively?
Absolutely yes. Theralase laser therapy is painless, safe, and overwhelmingly effective. We have helped countless patients treat their pain and inflammation by using this type of therapy, allowing many of them to return to their happy, healthy lives. In addition, many patients experience near-immediate benefits and feel the positive effects right away.
How Do Theralase Lasers Work?
Essentially, when the Theralase laser interacts with your skin, it causes a photochemical reaction. This natural reaction stimulates the biological healing process by turning light energy into chemical energy. In doing so, your body’s healing process speeds up and treats your specific condition more efficiently.
How Long Does the Therapy Take?
Depending on the severity of your condition and your body’s healing rate, treatments will last anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes and the amount of healing sessions will vary anywhere from 5 to 25. Every treatment plan is specially-designed for each individual patient in order to maximize the therapy’s effectiveness. Our Westport chiropractors will accurately diagnose your condition and prescribe a treatment plan that we believe is best for you and your body.
