K-Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?

Class IV K-Lasers deliver specific red and near infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. These include increased circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain and enhanced tissue repair. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970’s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2002. K-Laser has become the preferred choice of thousands of practitioners worldwide. 
 

Therapeutic Effects

The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored. 
 

Cellular Effects

During treatment, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level. Increased metabolic activity within the cell stimulates the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane initiating increased production of cellular energy (ATP). This leads to a cascade of beneficial events promoting the acceleration of the healing process and reduced pain. 
 

The Laser

K-Laser continually advances therapeutic laser science and technology, offering three laser models for use by licensed practitioners. 
 
Our lasers are designed to target the body’s optimal light absorbing complexes to treat pain and accelerate the healing process. By combing several wavelengths, and various modes of delivery all models are effective in treating pain, decreasing inflammation, and increasing circulation. 
 

Benefits of Laser Therapy

The K-Laser accelerates the healing process by decreasing inflammation, pain and scar tissue formation. In the management of chronic and acute pain, Class IV K-Laser Therapy can provide dramatic results.
