Class IV Laser Therapy
Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation
Lasers in Healthcare;
Therapeutic lasers are used for stimulation of cell function. Their biological effect is Photochemical ‘not’
Thermal, as is the case with surgical Lasers.
Class IV therapy lasers like the K-Laser deliver a therapeutic dosage to a larger volume of tissue in a shorter period of time.
So, what does that mean in English ?
Relieves acute and chronic pain. Increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair. Increases blood supply. Stimulates the immune system. Stimulates nerve function. Develops collagen and muscle tissue. Helps generate new and healthy cells and tissue. Promotes wound healing. Reduces inflammation
What conditions can benefit from K-Laser treatments ?
Soft tissue injuries and acute and chronic joint problems.
Osteoarthritis. Chronic back and neck pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome. Repetitive stress injuries. Frozen shoulder. Plantar fasciitis. Post herpetic neuralgia. Neuralgia/neuritis. Disc herniations. Soft tissue injuries; sprains, strains, bursitis, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, ligament and tendon injuries, TMJ, chondromalacia patella, rheumatoid arthritis
What Is K•Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy uses selected wavelengths of light to stimulate key molecules in human tissues. Decades of medical research have identified the wavelengths, energy level and frequencies that induce changes in cellular metabolism (Photobiostimulation), for instance melanin absorbing sunlight changes skins pigmentation. K-Laser delivers energy from superficial to deep tissues activating a cascade of photochemical reactions that promotes cell function, enabling treated tissues to accelerate the stages of the healing process and reduce pain sensation. This is a safe and non-invasive technique that uses the body’s own reparative processes.
