What is Laser Therapy?
Our clinic uses a class IV laser called K-Laser. K-laser is the gold standard when it comes to class IV laser therapy. It utilizes high powered laser energy in specific wave lengths to promote healing and tissue regeneration at the cellular level.
Due to the specific wavelengths of laser light used, this technology enhances the body’s innate healing response.
When this device is used over the body, the patient experiences a warm relaxing sensation. There is no pain involved with the treatment.
What Does Laser Therapy Do?
K-laser produces an effect in the body much like photosynthesis in plants. The light energy penetrates the skin and causes an effect called photobiomodulation. The laser energy enhances the body’s innate healing processes by bringing increased bloodflow to the target area. It also stimulates tissue repair and decreases pain levels.
How Is Laser Therapy Applied?
When this procedure is used, we wear safety glasses to protect our eyes from the lasers. The laser light is shined over the target area for a set period of time. The laser can be set to high or low-energy waves.
Does Laser Therapy Hurt?
The patient feels no discomfort during the treatment. In fact, the treatment is extemely comfortable and relaxing.
Our team will communicate with you throughout the procedure and ask questions regarding temperature level. If ever a patient feels like the treatment is too warm, we are able to adjust the energy output to meet their needs. We’ve had patients say “any chance I can take this thing home with me to help me fall asleep?” Its that good.
Is Laser Therapy Safe?
Not only is laser therapy safe, but it’s fast-acting, often providing immediate relief from pain and allowing for a significant increase in mobility, range of motion, and proper function of the muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Often time, the patient is feeling better and moving better in just a few treatments. Our laser therapy plans offer pain treatment without surgery or pain medication and are designed to manage your specific pain points.
Talking about safety, laser therapy can prevent you from taking unneccessary medications, and in many cases can save you from needing surgery.
This is an outpatient, non-invasive therapy that has proven results for every kind of patient. If you have questions about how Laser Therapy can help you, contact us, and we’ll give you all the facts.
