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:
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 stimulatesenzymes 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:
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.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LASER THERAPY
Q: Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?
A:There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Q: Are there any side effects or associated risks?
A: 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 days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
Q: How many treatments does it take?
A: 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 14 (or more) treatments. Certain conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
Q: Am I covered under my Extended Health Care Plan (EHC) for Laser Therapy?
A: Many EHC insurance policies cover chiropractic care. This would also include Laser Therapy services which would be billed under the chiropractic coverage umbrella.
Q: Has effectiveness been demonstrated scientifically?
A: Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.
