What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy or “Photobiomodulation,” is the use of specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects such as improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased inflammation and scar tissue. K-Laser is the highest power class IV laser on the market today. It is proven to biostimulate tissue repair and accelerate healing. Laser Therapy has been utilized in Europe by doctors since the 1970’s. Laser Therapy was FDA approved in the USA in 2002 and is now extensively used in the United States.

Frequently asked Questions
How often should a patient be treated? Acute conditions may be treated daily. Chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2-3 times per week tapering to once a week, or twice per month.
How many treatments does it take? It depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For acute conditions, 1-6 treatments may be sufficient. Chronic conditions may require 10-15 treatments. Severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How long before the results are felt? You may feel improvement in your condition 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 or 4 sessions.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment? Yes! Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of treatment including Chiropractic adjustments, ART, Acupuncture, physical therapy and following surgery.
What does it feel like? There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels a mild, soothing warmth, or tingling. Areas of pain may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
The mechanics of photobiomodulation (laser therapy) are complex, and so many laser companies use this complexity to “talk over your head” in hopes to create their own pseudo-science to fit the technical specifications they are able to produce in their equipment. At K-Laser USA, we are not only dedicated to constant research and a better understanding of the underlying principles of our technology, but we are equally dedicated to making these complex ideas more readily understandable to those who use and benefit from laser therapy.
