Cold Laser Therapy in Downtown Toronto

laser therapy on a persons shoulderLaser therapy is a scientifically trusted modality to promote faster healing, reduce pain, and decrease inflammation due to various injuries of the body. Dr. Michael Berenstein uses Theralase®, a top-of-the-line handheld laser device.

Therapeutic lasers work by supplying energy to the body in billions of photons of light. The body absorbs this laser light and transforms it into chemical energy, which the body then uses to commence its own tissue repairs.

What to Expect

Dr. Berenstein, who is certified in laser therapy, will focus the handheld laser on the area being addressed. There’s no warm or hot sensation. That’s why it’s called cold laser therapy. The laser produces a stimulatory effect on the injured tissue of the body, so you won’t feel any discomfort.

Conditions That Can Be Addressed

Laser therapy can be used on patients with acute and chronic pain conditions. These include the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Golfer’s/tennis elbow
  • Knee pain
  • Neck pain
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tendonitis
