Laser Therapy

Class IV K-Lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. The painless application of laser energy has been shown to:
  • decrease pain
  • reduce swelling/inflammation and
  • enhance tissue repair
It does this by increasing microcirculation, allowing more red blood cells with oxygen to reach injured tissues to help with healing. It will also increase venous and lymphatic drainage from the injured region. At the cellular level, it stimulates enzymes which will improve the rate at which energy is made in the cell. More energy in the cell means a quicker healing process.

Numerous studies show that Laser Therapy can help with:
  • Low Back Pain & Sciatica
  • Neck Pain & Headaches
  • Mid & Upper Back Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Muscle Strains & Spasms
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries
  • Osteoarthritis & Bursitis
  • Shoulder & Elbow Pain
  • Wrist & Hand Conditions
  • Hip & Knee Pain
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Plantar Fasciitis & Heel Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sports Injuries
  • Auto & Work Related Injuries
  • Post-surgical Healing
 
 

What Are The Specific Benefits of Using K-Laser?

  • World’s first four-wavelength Therapy Laser stimulates a wide variety of tissues
  • Uses continuous and modulating frequencies to promote pain control and healing
  • Has a SuperPulse mode for deeper therapeutic penetration
  • Delivers a higher power allowing for greater dosage and resulting in shorter treatment times
  • Utilizes presets that result in more consistent and safe treatment outcomes
  • The K-Laser is Health Care Practitioner (HCP) operated which means patients get professional expertise and knowledge at all times during treatment. For example, the HCP can incorporate interactive range of motion movements during treatments for optimal access to target tissues.  The HCP can also make any other therapeutic changes as needed during the Laser treatment.
