As frontline health care practitioners, Chiropractors see injured patients struggling to manage their pain and regain their mobility every day. As part of an ongoing treatment care plan, cold therapeutic lasers can help accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and eliminate pain, all while adding value to your practice and increasing revenue.
More than 4,000 studies worldwide have examined the use of low-level laser or cold laser therapy, proving the benefits of this highly effective, non-invasive, and pain-free treatment alternative for a wide range of nerve, muscle, and joint conditions*.
Theralase® therapeutic lasers expose tissue to light energy (photons) on two wavelengths, triggering a chain of chemical reactions on the cellular level that initiates tissue healing and pain reduction. As the most scientifically and clinically supported therapeutic medical laser technology on the market, Theralase’s® patented superpulsed cold laser system penetrates up to 5 inches in depth, targeting tissue other light-based systems are unable to reach. This cutting-edge technology provides customized and optimized treatment for each patient, automatically adjusting to deliver the most effective treatment to even the deepest injury sites.
Theralase® therapeutic lasers can effectively treat or help improve many chiropractic conditions* such as:
- Neck Pain
- Migraines / Headache
- Rotator Cuff Syndrome
- Muscle Strains / Ligament Sprains
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Lumber Arthrosis
- Tennis / Golfer’s Elbow
- Hip Bursitis
- Knee Pain / Ligament Injuries
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinitis
Theralase® patented, super-pulsed, non-thermal Class 3B lasers activate all three known cellular pathways.
660 nm Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Pathway
Theralase® stimulates the mitochondria of the cell to produce more Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP or basic cell energy) to accelerate tissue repair. (Proceedings of the International Society for Optics and Photonics, 2015)
905 nm Nitric Oxide (NO) Pathway
Independent research proves that the proprietary Theralase® 905nm superpulsed laser technology increases the production of Nitric Oxide (NO) by over 700%, increasing vasodilation and decreasing inflammation versus other competitive wavelengths. (Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, 2009)
905 nm Lipid Absorption Pathway
Theralase® laser technology effectively removes the pain signal at source by rebalancing the sodium potassium pathway. (Harvard Medical School, 2010)
OVER 100 TREATABLE CONDITIONS*
Theralase® cool laser therapy systems have been approved by both Health Canada and the FDA for the safe and effective treatment of pain associated with chronic knee conditions.
*While over 4,000 clinical studies worldwide have proven the efficacy of cold laser technologies in treating a host of other conditions, Theralase® lasers have not received explicit approval for these applications. In-clinic treatment of other conditions is at the sole discretion of the healthcare practitioner and may include the following:

Unlike LED and competitor laser technologies, Theralase’s® patented TLC-2000 dual wavelength superpulsed cold lasers penetrate up to 5 inches into tissue to help accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and eliminate pain at even the deepest sites.
