What is K-Laser therapy?
Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light to create beneficial therapeutic effects. The power can be modulated and pulsed and has no negative effect on normal tissue.
What can the K-Laser treat?
The K-Laser is a premier FDA-cleared Class IV programmable laser that delivers therapeutic power strong enough to cause healing changes to diseased and damaged tissues, relieving pain and reducing inflammation. Therapeutic applications which have shown promising results are:
- Acute painful muscle, tendon, or joint injuries
- Painful spinal problems (pinches nerves)
- Oral Infections
- Ear Infections
How is the K-Laser different than other laser therapy devices?
Low laser therapy devices are Class III lasers or “cold lasers”. Their power ranges from 5 milliwatts to 500 milliwatts. The K-Laser is a high-powered therapy device adjustable from 100 milliwatts to 6,000 milliwatts allowing for a much wider range of treatment protocols. The power and penetration of the K-Laser system are not attainable with cold laser devices.
What does it feel like to receive K-Laser therapy?
You don’t really feel much. The therapy does not cause any pain or discomfort for the patient and there is no anesthesia required for the procedure. The patient will only experience a slight warming or tingling sensation.
How many treatments are necessary?
Each patient and condition being treated are different, but usually, 6-10 sessions are sufficient to achieve a treatment goal, although positive results are often seen after the first couple of treatments. Each K-Laser treatment only takes from 2 to 10 minutes depending on the size and condition being treated. Some chronic cases may require regularly scheduled boosters after the initial treatment plan.
