These are a few common questions some healthcare patients have who don’t understand this revolutionary treatment method.
Revelation Health Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic has a Theralase TLC-2000 cold laser therapy system and we want to make sure you know the answers to these very important questions!
So without further adieu, here are 5 frequently asked questions about cold laser therapy and answers that will help you sort out the details.
Q1. Does cold laser therapy hurt?
– No it doesn’t!
The worst that can happen is you may feel a slight pinching sensation on injured areas, but that’s about it!
In general, two types of lasers are used in medicine:
- heat generating lasers which are used to cut through soft tissues
- cold lasers which stimulate regeneration, reduce inflammation and eliminate pain
The Theralase® TLC-2000 cold laser therapy system in use at Revelation Health Centre is a cold laser, therefore it’s harmless and doesn’t hurt!
Q2. Are these “cold lasers” harmful?
– They sure aren’t!
Theralase® lasers used at our clinic are not powerful enough to damage your body in any way.
If they were for some strange reason used excessively over a 24-hour period, for example, you may feel a strange sensation in the treated area but they would still not harm you.
Each laser therapy session at Revelation Health is directed by the guidance of Chiropractors to make sure they are not exposed to your body in excess – but in just the right amounts!
Q3. Does cold laser therapy work?
The Theralase® TLC-2000 cold laser system is an effective treatment method that assists in repairing and regenerating damaged soft tissues.
Cold laser therapy has been shown time and time again to produce positive results, sometimes just a few minutes after treatment!
In 2013, efficacy rates were more than 90 percent on a routine basis (Theralase®, 2013).
Q4. How do the Theralase® lasers work?
– Light energy!
The lasers transfer energy in the form of billions of photons of light into the body which stimulates cellular pathways that promotes healing while reducing inflammation and pain.
This works because our bodies transform the light into chemical energy which is then used in biocellular healing processes.

Q5. How long do your Calgary laser treatments last?
– It depends.
One of the Chiropractors at our clinic will assess your condition(s) and determine how long is best for treatment.
Typically, sessions last anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes and patients come in for one a day maximum.
The total number of laser treatment sessions varies case by case and depends on the severity of your condition and your body’s response.
