Surgery can be a scary and intimidating thing. Some times it’s a necessity to help your body repair an injury or with a life threatening condition. Laser therapy is one modality that can help with post surgical recuperation. It will heal you twice as fast. What does that mean for you as a patient? It means that you will be out of pain quicker. You will have a reduction in inflammation and bruising. This allows your body to obtain range of motion more quickly in instances of shoulder, elbow, hip, knee or ankle surgeries. For other types of surgeries it reduces inflammation and pain healing the surgical area more efficiently. It will prevent scar tissue build up inside and reduce scaring on the surface (see before and after pictures on the website).

Laser Therapy- Healing Your Pain… Changing Your Life…
Tennis elbow (lateral Epicodylitis) is a painful condition caused by overuse and muscle strain. The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony prominence on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist. Tennis elbow affects 1% to 3% of the population overall and as many as 50% of tennis players during their careers. Less than 5% of all tennis elbow diagnoses are related to actually playing tennis. Tennis elbow affects men more than women. It most often affects people between the ages of 30 and 50, although people of any age can be affected.
Although tennis elbow usually effects tennis players it also affects other athletes and people who participate in leisure or work activities that require repetitive movements. Usually, the arm, elbow, wrist, and hand movement, especially while tightly gripping something is most common. Examples include golfers, baseball players, bowlers, gardeners or landscapers, house or office cleaners (because of vacuuming, sweeping, and scrubbing), carpenters, mechanics, and assembly-line workers. Basically, anyone that has repetitive motion and use of their elbow.
The pain associated with tennis elbow may radiate from the outside of your elbow into your forearm and wrist. Pain and weakness may make it difficult to:
Shake hands, squeeze objects, turn a door knob, open jars, hold objects such as a cup of coffee.
What is the solution to Tennis Elbow?
The Class IV K –Laser is at the heart of tech world when it comes to healing. It provides a safe, effective, non-invasive, painless solution for Tennis Elbow injuries. Patients respond exceptionally well to K-Laser treatment for this kind of injury and often see instant results. Many are healed completely after a few treatments. Each cell has its own energy field. The laser uses red and infrared light to stimulate the mitochondria of the cell, the power plant, which then releases the chemical ATP, Adenosine Tri Phosphate, which wakes the cells up so they can talk to each other again. It increases the healing time by 50% or more. Before you consider surgery or if you are being treated with Physical Therapy, give K- Laser a chance and try a drug free, painless way of healing.
Venous ulcers represent about 70–90% of all leg ulcers. Incidence is higher in individuals over 65 years of age. Women are proportionally more affected, due to their higher survival rates compared to men. The natural history of a venous ulcer is a continuous cycle of healing and tissue derangement that can persist for a long time. Conventional venous ulcer treatment is currently based on a combination of topical care (wound dressing) and compressive therapy. Educating patients on self-care, which includes wound dressing, hygiene, diet, and exercise, is a must. Laser Light therapy has been used in addition to conventional therapy with promising results, especially in patients with acute ulcers.
Healing Laser Light Therapy is a form of “photobiomodulation” that uses a photon light capable of generating enough energy to interact with living tissues. Laser Therapy produces photo-chemical and photo-physical effects without generating heat. The intention is reestablishing cell homeostasis. Essentially, light energy is delivered topically in a controlled and safe manner. The light is then absorbed by photo-absorbers (chromophores) that transform it into chemical energy. Basically, the photon light increases the production of ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate). ATP is responsible for maintenance of the cell function. The resulting energy is used to normalize cellular and tissue functions according to normal tissue genetics and physiology, thus promoting more consistent tissue repair. Positive effects include acceleration of tissue repair, increased formation of tissue, and wound contraction (closing up) . Laser Therapy takes away the inflammation and reduces pain, sometimes immediately.
If you have been suffering with Venous Ulcers and would like to alleviate pain, heal in half the time and prevent scaring call for an appointment today.

K LASER THERAPY SHINGLES TREATMENT
With the upcoming holiday season your stress levels may be elevated. This can active an outbreak of Shingles. Shingles is caused by the varicella zoster virus, which is the same virus as the Chicken Pox. Shingles is extremely painful and there are but a few options to relieve the pain. There are 3 stages of Shingles. 1. Burning, numbing, itching pain followed by a small rash. 2. Pain and rash are followed by a red patch containing small blisters, usually filled with clear fluid. 3. Small raw ulcers that eventually dry up and crust over, forming scabs and they fall off within 2 to 4 weeks. If your child has Chicken Pox please remember the same treatment works for them also.
K Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, pain free, light based therapy that uses a combination of red and infrared light using specific wave lengths. The photons of light are absorbed by the mitochondria in cells and results in an increase of cellular activity. This dries up the Shingles blisters, reduces inflammation and pain, alleviating the cycle of the occurrence by half the time.
K Laser Therapy will help to prevent the serious complication of PHN (Postherpetic Neuralgia). Postherpetic neuralgia is a long term condition after the shingles rash has disappeared. There may be burning, stabbing or dull pain over the area sometimes persisting for weeks, months or years. The area shows extreme sensitivity to touch. Using K Laser Therapy with specific protocols patients may notice an immediate improvement in pain of approximately 20–30% during the administration of the first 3 treatments. During the course of 8-12 treatments, patients usually experience 90-100% relief of pain and other symptoms. Of course each patient varies in their healing time. This is an excellent alternative to taking pain medications or suffering for weeks or months.
Tell your loved ones about K Laser Therapy. Help them be pain free and enjoy this upcoming holiday season.
Health Benefits of K- Laser Therapy for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a long term condition that can cause pains that are felt throughout the body. Sufferers can also experience fatigue, stiffness, memory problems, and headaches. While nobody knows exactly how the condition arises, it is thought to be related to chemical processes within the brain and spinal cord. Sometimes Fibromyalgia can be triggered by and emotional experience or physical trauma, though in some cases it is thought to be genetic.
How Does K-Laser Work on Fibromyalgia?
Basically, three things happen during K-Laser treatment. First, infrared laser therapy treatment helps reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue healing—both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, or even bones.
Light comes in a variety of forms. The light that we see is the visible part of the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation. The light that is visible to us is a specific range of colors in that spectrum… but not the whole spectrum. O Laser light is compressed light of a wavelength from the cold, red part of the spectrum, whereas the sun is the ultra-violet burning “hot” side. The K-Laser is very different from natural light. It penetrates deep into the painful area and eliminates the pain, many times instant relief is felt. Each cell has its own energy field. The laser uses red and far-in fared light to stimulate the mitochondria of the cell, the power plant, which then releases the chemical ATP, Adenosine Tri Phosphate, which wakes the cells up so they can talk to each other again. This process reduces pain and inflammation by bringing more blood and oxygen to the area. It increases the healing time by 50% or more. K-Laser Therapy is extremely effective in alleviating pain and reducing inflammation throughout the body. In some cases it may relieve this condition permanently, others may be an ongoing maintenance program.
