Theralase– superpulsed laser technology is able to drive light energy up to 4” below the skin surface. Light energy of the correct wavelength(color) and power is able to dramatically increase the healing rate of damaged cells; thus allowing the body to heal itself at an accelerated rate. Pain is believed to originate from an ionic differentiation of potassium and sodium gradient across a cellular membrane. The increase in cellular membrane permeability induced by the laser system causes a reabsorption of sodium and potassium molecules thus removing the gradient and hence the pain signal.
