Therapeutic Laser Treatments

Zavitz Chiropractic and Therapeutic Laser Clinic is proud to offer the residents of Welland and Niagara region innovative laser treatments. Using the state of art Theralase® laser, Dr. Zavitz provides a natural and effective pain relief therapy.

Theralase® provides patients with a safe, effective and painless therapy that uses the body's own natural healing systems to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, increase tissue integrity and promote cell regeneration. It's known as a treatment for both acute and chronic pain conditions. Within a short period of time, patients who have been incapacitated or restricted by pain for years regain the active and healthy lifestyles they knew before their injury or illness occurred.

Therapeutic lasers work by supplying energy to the body in the form of billions of photons of light. The body absorbs this laser light on a cellular level and transforms it into chemical energy, which is then used to commence tissue repairs. The bio-stimulating effect of laser therapy causes a decrease in inflammation and pain as well as an increase in tissue regeneration and healing.

Benefits of therapeutic laser treatment may include rapid cell growth, tissue repair, increased metabolic activity, reduced fibrous tissue formation, anti-inflammatory action, increased vascular activity and stimulated nerve function. Treatments may be suitable for conditions such as Low back pain and sciatica, Neck pain, Whiplash-associated disorders, Knee osteoarthritis, Hip osteoarthritis, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Tennis elbow or golfer's elbow, Rotator cuff tears, Shoulder or hip bursitis, Bunions, Plantar fasciitis, Heel spurs, Tendinitis, Diabetic ulcers, Shingles, and Cold sores.

Smoking Cessation Therapy

Smoking cessation laser treatment is a modern method of therapy. The laser simply converts electrical energy into a form of light energy that is transmitted to the patient by means of specially designed probes. Low power lasers do not generate heat, therefore, when the laser contacts the skin, the patient experiences no warmth or burning.

We are using the laser on energy points to help promote the release of neurotransmitters, such as endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, to help smokers deal with their withdrawal symptoms.

During the treatment, most people feel nothing other than a sense of relaxation. The laser procedure involves the application of the probe to energy points on the ears and limbs. When these specific points of the body are stimulated with the laser, it promotes the release of these neurotransmitters into the brain, which results in a calming effect on the body.

Endorphins, a specific neurotransmitter, are one of the body’s own painkillers, an opioid (morphine-like) chemical produced by the body that serves to suppress pain and assists in keeping the body calm and relaxed. The patient experiences a feeling of euphoria and well-being that helps to dramatically reduce the withdrawal symptoms, irritability and cravings, which come with quitting addictive tendencies such as smoking.

Addictions involve both a physical and a psychological component. Our smoking cessation programs address both components by using a state-of-the-art laser therapy system to address the physical component of the addiction and counselling guidance to address the psychological component.

The counselling guidance involves practical advice that helps to support the individuals’ efforts to remain a non-smoker.

About Chiropractic Care

With over 6,000 practicing chiropractors, chiropractic is one of the largest primary health care professions in Canada. It is a regulated health profession and, in fact, Canadian chiropractors are amongst the best educated in the world.

Every year, over 30 million treatments are provided Canada-wide and more than 4.5 million Canadians seek the help of a chiropractor for relief from muscle, joint and spinal pain conditions.

Chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive approach to health care. Chiropractors practice a drug-free, manual approach which includes patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment. In particular, chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, extremity joints and their effect on the nervous system. Chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic exercises, to utilize other non-invasive therapies and to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

Why Chiropractic Treatment?

The primary goal of chiropractic care is to decrease pain and restore function. Adjustments are the most common form of treatment utilized by chiropractors; this is also known as spinal manipulative therapy. Adjustments are non-invasive manual procedures that utilize the chiropractors' highly refined skills developed through eight years of intensive education.

The vast majority of patients who seek chiropractic care do so for the following conditions:

  • Low back pain and sciatica
  • Neck pain and whiplash
  • Headaches, including migraines and tension headaches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder or hip bursitis
  • Tennis elbow or golfer's elbow
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Workplace injuries
  • Amongst others
