K Laser therapy is a high-power laser therapy that can stimulate all cell types, including soft tissue, ligaments, cartilage and nerves. As a result, it manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration, creating an optimal healing environment. Clinicians are using laser therapy more than ever before to help reduce pain and inflammation related to many common conditions. If you’re thinking about laser therapy, here are five things you should know.
It reduces pain and inflammation
Unlike prescription medications, K Laser therapy can reduce pain and inflammation without any side effects. Not only that, it also provides long-lasting pain relief. The number of treatments required may vary depending on the condition, but many patients experience relief after only a couple of treatments.
More than 1,200 studies have been conducted worldwide over the last 40 years, demonstrating that high power laser therapy offers powerful therapeutic benefits. For example, it has been found to effectively treat chronic low back pain in 71% of cases.
It can be used for acute and chronic conditions
K Laser therapy is most effective when it is administered as soon as possible following an injury. The faster the inflammation is reduced, the better. The laser therapy allows your body to quickly begin the healing process and helps restore your body to normal functioning more quickly than without treatment.
High power laser therapy can stimulate all cell types, such as soft tissue, ligaments, cartilage and nerves. Some frequently treated conditions include Fibromyalgia, back and neck pain, sciatic pain, arthritis pain, degenerative discs and joints, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, sprains or strains, TMJ, headaches, and athletic injuries.
Treatments are customizable
One of the great things about K Laser therapy is that it is versatile and allows the clinician the flexibility to treat you in the manner that is best for your concern.
Treatments feel good
Sometimes we have to endure a little pain to receive a benefit, like a massage that hurts initially, but with K Laser therapy, that just isn’t the case. Depending on the laser, you may either feel nothing or a gentle, soothing warmth. Most patients report enjoying the experience.
Treatments are fast
We are all busy these days, which makes speedy treatments very attractive. With K Laser therapy, most treatments take about 5 – 10 minutes, depending on the size, depth and acuteness of the condition being treated. Most patients also report pain relief in as little as one treatment, and most are able to resume normal daily activities with no pain and restricted movement after their therapy is completed.
