What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infraed) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970’s. Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is being used extensively in the United States.
During Laser Therapy, the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level, and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the release of nitric oxide that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing the cellular function and health.
Laser Therapy is proven to bio-stimulate tissue repair and growth. The Laser accelerates wound healing, and decreases inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. When it comes to pain management, Class IV Laser Therapy provides dramatic results, is non-addictive and virtually free of side effects.
K-Laser is leading the way in pain management, tissue repair, safe treatment, and fast treatment times.
