Get Back Into Motion With Advanced Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. K-Laser Therapy Cube is an advanced FDA-cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. It is the first, most powerful and compact dynamic therapy laser at 4 wavelengths in the world – in fact, it’s the most advanced and efficient laser technology currently available commercially.
Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and
nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.
Studies show laser therapy helps reduce pain associated with the most common medical conditions, including headaches, tooth and jaw pain, neck/arm/shoulder/wrist/hand injuries, lower back pain, knee, hip and SI joint pain, and ankle/foot injuries. Laser therapy is often used with other forms of treatment, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and even following surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
K-Laser Cube is the ideal tool for sharp and chronic pain, inflammation, and, with its ability to increase vascular and metabolic activity, it is also very effective at treating wounds and diabetic foot. It is used in sports rehabilitation, treatment of fractures, tissue trauma, as well as for ligaments and tendons after surgery.
How Does the K-Laser Work?
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
During K-Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.
How Often Should A Patient Be Treated?
Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2-3 times a week, tapering to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.
How Many Treatments Does It Take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions 4-6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 6-12 (or more) treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain. The typical treatment is only 4-8 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
How Long Before The Results Are Felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that the condition is not improving. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3-4 sessions.
