Transcript of "Cold Laser Therapy - The Human Book"

  2. 2. THERALASEFounded in 1994, Theralase builds thefinest therapeutic medical lasers in theworld Theralase designs, develops and manufactures patented, superpulsed laser technology utilized in biostimulative applications. The technology is safe and effective in the treatment of pain, inflammation, neuromuscular skeletal conditions and wound care for the human, equine and companion animal markets. Founded in 1994, Theralase is committed to provide cutting-edge preclinical and clinical research to remain the most clinically and scientifically supported therapeutic medical laser on the market. The highly trained Theralase team continuously brings our valued customers the most advanced technology on the market, superior customer service, the latest interactive training and the most up to date clinical protocols to accelerate the success of their practice. Used by thousands of medical practitioners worldwide and improving the lives of human patients for over 17 years, the award winning Theralase TLC-1000 laser technology is now being offered to all healthcare practitioners as a modern way to treat pain and inflammation safely and effectively.Pg.2
  3. 3. NEUROMUSCULAR SKELETAL CONDITIONS Eliminating PAIN AND INFLAMMATIONNeuromuscular skeletal conditions are common in all of us. We can all experience sprains, strains and painthat 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 injuriessafely and effectively on a cellular level. This medical technology is the Theralase line of therapeutic medicallaser systems.The Theralase superpulsed laser system can penetrate up to 4 inches into tissue, to promote cellular regenerationat the source of injury. Laser energy helps to repair damaged cells by accelerating the body’s natural healingmechanisms. Depending on the severity of the injury, your patient can return to an active lifestyle pain-freewithin a few weeks versus months or years of life altering pain. Pg.3
  4. 4. THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE PRODUCTSuperpulsed 905 nm technologypenetrates up to 4” into tissueSafe and EffectiveTheralase’s superpulsed 905 nanometer (nm) near infrared and 660 nanometer (nm) visible red laser technologyaccelerates healing by reducing pain and inflammation while staying below the Maximal Permissible Exposure(MPE) tolerance for tissue. Theralase’s dual wavelength technology 660 nm 905 nm 905 nm 905 nm Continuous Wave LED CW Laser Superpulsed Laser Laser 5mW 100mW 50,000mW 25mW CONTINUOUS CONTINUOUS SUPER PULSED CONTINUOUS WAVE WAVE (INSTANTANEOUS) WAVE 5 mW 50,000 25 mW 100 Cm2 mW / Cm2 Cm2 mW/Cm2 TISSUE SURFACE Pulsing at 50,000 mW up 1 to 10,000 times per second, 1.8 mW / cm2 37 mW / cm2 18,450 mW / cm2 3.4 mW / cm2 2 Penetration Depth the Theralase 905 nm super pulsed laser is able to deliver 1” Penetration 0.7 mW / cm2 14 mW / cm2 6,810 mW / cm2 0.5 mW / cm2 Depth an exact dose of light energy up to 4” into tissue. 4” Penetration 0 mW / cm2 0 mW / cm2 2,5 mW / cm2 0 mW / cm2 DepthDual wavelength TECHNOLOGYTheralase combines 660 nm visible red and 905 nm near infrared superpulsed lasers to allow superficial anddeep penetration of laser energy of up to 4” into tissue activating all three known cellular pathways.True Laser Diodes Versus LEDsTrue lasers are highly directional delivering 100% of the photons to the affected area versus only 5 to 6% witha LED; hence, much better treatment outcomes occur with true lasers versus LEDs. Laser - 100% of light energy in the forward direction LED - 5 to 6 % of light energy in the forward directionTheralase Laser LED100 mW x 100%= 100 mW 15 mW x 6%= 0.9 mWShorter Treatment TimesThe Theralase Multiple Probe utilizes 9 Lasers and is able to treat an area of 20cm2 thus reducing treatmenttimes by 90% in comparison to a single laser probe.Pg.4
  5. 5. THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE PRODUCT theralase is the only laser on the market known to activate all three cellular pathways660 nm - Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) Pathway:Healing Inner MembraneTheralase stimulates the mitochondria of the cell to produce more OuterAdenosine Triphosphate (ATP or basic cell energy) to accelerate Membranetissue repair. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Science 2003)Cells that lack energy are unable to participate in the healing process. Laserenergy is delivered to injured cells, which are able to absorb the light and Cristaeconvert it into chemical energy, which is then used to accelerate tissue repair. MatrixOnce cells are fully energized they are able to stimulate each other to rebuildand heal the injured area.905 nm - Nitric Oxide (NO) Pathway: InflammationIndependent research proves that the proprietary Theralase 905nmsuperpulsed laser technology increases the production of NO by over700%, increasing vasodilation and decreasing inflammation versusother competitive wavelengths. (Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, 2009).When tissue injury occurs, the inflammatory process is initiated to immobilizethe area and prevent further damage to our body. This process is usuallyassociated with pain caused by inflammation exerting pressure on nerveendings. In order to decrease inflammation in the particular region, the bodyproduces Nitric Oxide (NO). Nitric Oxide has been proven to relax thevascular network, dilate the capillaries, improve vascular function, protectagainst cell injury and help rebalance the immune response. This processnot only reduces inflammation but brings much needed oxygen and othermetabolites to the injured tissue aiding in their natural healing.905 nm - Lipid Absorption Pathway: Pain Extracellular fluid with high concentrationTheralase laser technology effectively removes the pain signal at of Na+source by rebalancing the sodium potassium pathway. (Harvard MedicalSchool 2010) Cell membrane Na+K+ Na+ Na+ Na+Neurons use electrical and chemical signals to transmit information. Thetransmission of pain is primarily due to an expulsion of sodium ions (Na+)and an influx of potassium (K+) ions into the nerve cell across the cellular ATPmembrane, altering the electrical potential difference of the nerve cell. Thepeak absorption of lipids occurs in the near infrared wavelength range of 905 K+Na+ ADPnm to 910 nm. Since the cellular membrane is a bilipid membrane, laser lightin the 905 nm range increases the porosity of the cellular membrane. Thisincreased cellular membrane porosity allows the reabsorption of sodium ions Intracellular fluid with low concentration of Na+ andand the expulsion of potassium ions across the membrane rebalancing the high concentration of K+sodium-potassium pump and removing the pain signal at source.

  8. 8. BUT DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...HERE’S WHAT Healthcare PractitionersARE SAYING ABOUT THERALASEJAMES ANDREWS, MD, Birmingham, Alabama“Our rehab specialists have reported outstanding success when using the Theralase therapeutic laser systemfor rehabilitation of certain knee, shoulder, elbow and other neuromuscular skeletal conditions. The Theralaselaser is now a standard of care treatment methodology within our rehab clinics and is a great tool in helping ourathletes return to competition”.LAURENCE ALTSHULER, MD, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma“The most advanced laser I have used is the Theralase therapeutic laser system, which I have now utilized forover one year and with which I have treated over 1000 patients. The Theralase is my first choice of treatmentfor patients with arthritis of any joint as well as degenerative disc disease. I also recommend the Theralase forTMJ, carpal tunnel, tendonitis and foot problems such as plantar fasciitis. The results have been excellent”.KEVIN WILK, DPT, Birmingham, Alabama“I love the Theralase medical laser system and use it in our clinic at least 20 times per day. Theralase is great forhealing soft tissue injuries, damaged articular cartilage, ligament, muscle and tendon lesions - pretty much anymuscular skeletal condition that I see at Champion Sports Medicine. I had one of my physical therapists use iton their plantar wart excisions site that wasn’t healing and Theralase healed it in just a few days! Remarkable! Ireally love the Theralase and my patients love it too”.GEORGE POULIS AND DAVE ABRAHAM, ATS, Toronto, Ontario“The Theralase laser is the most effective technology we have ever used. Our players (Toronto Blue Jays) nowrely on Theralase to keep them healthy and playing at their peak”.ALBERT SCALES, DC, St. Catherines, Ontario“I first purchased a therapeutic unit 2 years ago. The Theralase laser system quickly doubled my referralswithin a few weeks. Initially, I used it to complement my other treatment modalities including ultrasound andelectrotherapy. I have recently upgraded to a more powerful system and now use it as a stand alone therapythat has replaced all other modalities. I’m averaging 200 laser treatments per month. The cost of the upgradewas offset within 3 months”.Pg.8
  9. 9. CLINICAL PROOF over 3,000 clinical studies worldwide have proven the effectiveness of laser therapyEFFICACY OF LOW-LEVEL LASER THERAPY IN THE MANAGEMENT OF NECK PAIN: aSYSTEMatIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS OF RANDOMIZED PLACEBO OR ACTIVETREATMENT CONTROLLED TRIALSRoberta Chow et al. The Lancet, November 2009Sixteen randomized controlled clinical trials were identified for analysis totalling 820 patients. In acute neckpain, results of two trials showed a relative risk (RR) of 1.69 for pain improvement for LLLT versus placebo.Five trials of chronic neck pain showed a RR for pain improvement of 4.05 using LLLT. Eleven trials reportedreductions in pain intensity when measured using the Visual Analog Scale. Seven trials provided follow up datafor 1 to 22 weeks and saw short term pain relief persisting in the medium term using LLLT. Side effects fromLLLT were mild and not different from those of placebo.Study Conclusion: LLLT reduces pain immediately after treatment in acute neck pain and for up to 22 weeksafter completion of treatment in patients with chronic neck pain.Effects of 904 NM low-level laser therapy in the management of lateralepicondylitis: a randomized Controlled trialLam and Chein. Photomedicine and Laser Surgery, April 2007The study evaluated the effectiveness of 904 nm Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in the management oflateral epicondylitis. Thirty-nine patients with lateral epicondylitis were examined and treated with pain levelsdetermined by the Visual Analog Scale. The study revealed that LLLT in addition to exercise is effective inimproving the grip strength and subjective rating of physical function of patients with lateral epicondylitis.Study Conclusion : LLLT is highly effective in treating lateral epicondylitisefficacy of 904 NM gallium arsenide low level laser therapy in themanagement of chronic myofascial pain in the neck: a double blind andrandomized controlled trialAli Gur, MD et al. Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, 2004A prospective, double blind, randomized and controlled trial was conducted in patients with chronic myofascialpain syndrome (MPS) in the neck to evaluate the effects of infrared low level 904 nm Gallium Arsenide (GaAs)laser therapy (LLLT) on clinical and quality of life. Results showed that the laser group experienced a significantimprovement in pain at all outcome measures (p<0.01) over the placebo group.Study Conclusion: LLLT is highly effective in treating Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome Pg.9
