     K-Laser-Cold Laser Therapy

 

K-Laser-Cold Laser Therepy

The K-Laser's innovative infrared laser therapy is helping many with chronic pain. Chiropractic laser therapy speeds healing, gives effective pain relief, and decreases muscle spams. Learn about Class 4 Lasers.

The K-Laser uses specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create therapeutic effects such as improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.

It does this much like a plant absorbs sunlight and through photosynthesis uses that sunlight as energy to grow. Your cells can "see" the infrared light, they absorb it and through photo-biomodulation they use the energy from the infrared light to heal.

It's pretty complicated technical stuff, but the results are simple. It works!

 

Known Effects of Laser Therapy on the Body-

 

Accelerated Tissue Repair & Cell Growth

 The K-Laser penetrates deeply into the tissue and increases the energy available to the cell. This allows it to take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. This helps tissues repair faster.

Faster Wound Healing

Laser therapy stimulates the production of collagen which allows your tissues to repair.

Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation

Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue.

Anti-Inflammation

Laser therapy increases the diameter of blood vessels and allows for lymphatic drainage. These together help reduce swelling.

Anti-Pain (Analgesic)

Laser therapy helps produce pain killing neurochemicals as it blocks pain signals from the nerves.

Improved Vascular Activity

Laser therapy increases the formation of capillaries in damaged tissues, speeding up healing.

 Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points

Laser therapy helps reduce trigger points and stimulates acupuncture points.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt? What does it feel like? -
There is little or no sensation during treatment—occasionally one feels mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain may be sensitive briefly after treatment.

Are there side effects or risks? -
Very few side effects have been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may be aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.

How long do treatments take? -
The typical course of treatment is five to ten minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

How often should I be treated? -
Acute conditions may be treated daily, especially if accompanied by significant pain. Chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week tapering to one a week or every other week, with improvement.

How many treatments does it take? -
It depends. Some acute conditions may respond in 1-6 treatments. Chronic conditions may require 10 to 15 (or more) treatments. Some conditions may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.

How long before I notice results? -
Some patients notice pain reduction after the first visit. Sometimes it takes several visits before noticing improvement. Each treatment is cumulative, and most patients see results after 5 or 6 sessions.
