Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) therapy, or "photobiomodulation", is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effect.  These effects include: improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling.

Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy

During Laser Therapy, the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and increases the metabolic activity within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane.  This process initiates the production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.

Physiological Effects of Laser Therapy

  • decreased pain levels
  • reduced inflammation
  • increased tissue proliferation and regeneration
  • accelerated soft tissue and bone repair
  • increased tissue tensile strength
  • enhanced nerve regeneration & function
  • increased cell metabolism
  • increased enzymatic responses
  • increased cell membrane potentials
  • increased microcirculation & vasodilation
  • increased lymphatic flow
  • increased collagen production
  • enhanced angiogenesis (creation of new blood vessels)

Numerous Studies Show That Laser Therapy Can With:

  • tendinopathies
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow ) and medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow)
  • ligament sprains
  • muscle strains
  • repetitive stress/strain injuries
  • plantar fasciitis
  • osteoarthritis of shoulder, back, knee
  • fibromyalgia
  • sports injuries
  • auto & work related injuries

Why is the K-Laser Different?

K-Laser is the most powerful laser on the market offering four wavelengths of light, and intense super pulse activity, providing:

  • targeted tissue response
  • greater depth of penetration
  • faster treatment times
  • improved and accelerated healing, and therefore fewer treatment sessions

With the K-Laser, you get better faster!

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?

There is little or no sensation during treatment.  Occasionally one feels mild, soothing warmth or tingling.  Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.

Are there any side effects or associated risks?

During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported.  Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few day, as the healing response is more active after treatment.

How long does each treatment take?

The typical treatment is 3 to 9 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

How often should a patient be treated?

Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain.  More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.

How many treatments does it take?

This depends on the nature of the condition being treated.  For some acute conditions, 1 to 6 treatments may be sufficient.  Those of a more chronic nature may require 10 to 15 (or more) treatments.  Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.

How long before the results are felt?

You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment.  Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments.  This does not mean nothing is happening.  Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.

Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?

Yes!  Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy, and even surgery.  Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of treatment.
