The Science Behind Laser Therapy

We get asked every day, “How does laser therapy work”.

Elgin Chiropractic Clinic utilizes a state of the art, current laser system called Theralase.  Theralase works 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.

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. ATP Pathway:  accelerates healing
  2. Nitric Oxide Pathway:  reduces inflammation
  3. Lipid Absorption Pathway:  decreases pain

Theralase is very effective at treating acute and chronic pain conditions.  If you have any questions or would like to have Theralase treatment, please call our office to book an appointment at your earliest convenience.
