Currently in our office we are treating and getting great results from the following:
It’s the only LASER on the market with a four Wavelength/Triple Delivery Mode. The K-Laser was the first to employ three infrared wavelengths simultaneously of 800 nm, 905 nm, and 970 nm and combine them with a 660 nm visible beam. These Four Wavelengths are more efficient, healing the tissue while also aiding in pain relief. Combine this with Three Distinct Delivery Modes (Continuous Wave, Frequency Modulated, and Intense Super Pulse), and you have a therapeutic laser solution that offers as much variety as the conditions and patients you treat.
Class 4K-Laser enhances tissue repair by bio-stimulation. K-Laser accelerates the natural healing process of the body by reducing inflammation and pain.
For Chronic and acute pain management Class 4 K-Laser often provides great results.
Studies show that laser therapy can reduce pain in:
Laser Therapy, or “photo biomodulation”, 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. Laser Therapy has been widely utilised 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.
Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.
Acute conditions: Daily
Chronic Conditions: 2-3 times a week
Long term condition: 1-2 times a month
How many treatments are necessary?
Related to the nature of the condition:
Acute conditions: 2-6 may be enough
Chronic problem: 6-12 (possibly more)
Long term: Periodic care (arthritis)
Most of the time improvement (pain reduction) is felt after the first treatment. Sometimes for Chronic conditions several treatments are necessary. Treatments are cumulative and results are often felt after 3-4 sessions.
Laser therapy is often applied at the same time as other forms of treatment such as Chiropractic, massage, physiotherapy and electro-therapy. It can also be used in post-surgery treatment.
There is nearly no sensation during treatment. Occasionally a mild warmth can be felt. Painful or inflamed areas can be briefly sensitive before pain reduction occurs.
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
Increased pain my be due to an increase in localised blood flow, increased vascular activity, increased cellular activity, or a number of other effects.
The duration of a treatment is related to the area and the condition. Usually it will take between 4-10minutes.
Yes. Thousands of studies have been published. More that a hundred of them being rigorously controlled scientific studies.
Adenosine triphosphate is a complex organic chemical that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells, e.g. muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation, and chemical synthesis. Found in all forms of life, ATP is often referred to as the "molecular unit of currency" of intracellular energy transfer.
