Laser Therapy & Post Surgical Treatment

Laser Therapy & Post Surgical Treatment

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).

How does laser therapy achieve this?

K-Laser is leading the way in pain management, tissue repair, safe treatments, and fast treatment times.

  • Dual-Wavelength Beam that penetrates Deep into the Tissue
  • Continuous & Modulating Frequencies to Promote Pain Control and Healing
  • SuperPulse Mode for Deeper Therapeutic Penetration
  • High Power Delivering Larger Doses, Resulting in Shorter Treatment Times
  • Presets that Result in More Consistent and Safe Treatment Outcome

If you are ready to be pain free, drug free and to start enjoying life after surgery faster, consider laser therapy as part of your post surgical healing rehabilitation treatment. Call us for an appointment today. You will be glad you did.

Fall and Falling Down – How Laser Therapy can Help

Fall and Falling Down – How Laser Therapy can Help

As summer comes to a close and the fall weather heads our way people will now be looking forward to the beautiful fall leaves. This means on our walks or bike rides as we gaze at the beautiful colors we may not pay much attention to where we are going. Unfortunately, that’s when falls and trips happen. We may think a small fall is no big deal, however, it may cause bruising, cuts / scrapes, sprains and even concussions, especially if you fall off a bike. How does laser therapy fit in to this picture?

Understanding how the laser works is pretty simple. K-Laser is a photon light which works by bringing more blood and oxygen to the area and activating the mitochondria of the cell causing it to release ATP, waking that cell up giving your body a head start on the healing process.  This allows your body to heal in half the time it would normally take getting you back out there enjoying the cool fall days and beautiful scenery.

Come in as soon as you can after the fall or trip.  It is a painless way to heal.

It’s hard to believe that summer is over and it’s already time for school. With that comes football games! Football comes in two forms. American football, with helmets, pads and a funny shaped ball and European football, i.e. soccer, where they are less protected but still receive the same types of injuries. One of the biggest injuries in football are knee injuries. It can be a slight sprain or it may be a more serious injury like ligament or tendon tears and even fractures. Another injury that has become more prevalent in football are concussions and yes Laser Therapy can help greatly with concussions. In fact numerous professional teams use Laser Therapy on their players for all the the above mentioned injuries.

The other side of an injury is the emotional factor. The player wants to be in the game! They’ve waited all summer to play and now they are sidelined and Laser Therapy can accelerate the bodies healing process and get them back in the game twice as fast.

How does Laser Therapy work?

  • Dual-Wavelength Beam that penetrates Deep into the Tissue

How to Treat Summer Injuries

Yay, it’s Summer!!! As the days heat up we start becoming more active outdoors. Our weekend warrior goes in to high gear. That is when we experience more injuries. Strains, sprains, pulls, tears, aches and pains all pop up unexpectedly. Whether you’re playing baseball, surfing, skateboarding, golfing or even playing Corn Hole, injuries can occur.

Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling/inflammation. 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. K-Laser Therapy is used to treat numerous conditions.

Injuries Treated with Laser Therapy

  • Knee Pain / Arthritis
  • Cervical Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Back Pain
  • Strains & Sprains
  • Breaks
  • Open Wounds
  • Shoulder, Hip, Elbow & Hand Pain
  • Concussions
  • Shingles

As rehabilitation specialists know, the main goal of treatment for many when treating painful, debilitating conditions is to facilitate improved function and mobility. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique to help make that goal a reality. So when you feel that twinge of pain or strain, or if you have a more serious injury, please call for an appointment. It will let you enjoy your summer pain free.
