What is Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy is the application of red and infrared light over injuries to improve soft tissue healing resulting in relief of acute and chronic conditions.

  • Releases natural pain killers.

  • Produces energy needed for cells to function properly.

  • Activates cells that clean up damage from inflammation.

  • Suppresses processes that cause damage.

  • Activates processes that accelerate tissue repair and cell growth.

  • Increases circulation (and therefore oxygen and nutrient delivery).

How Does  Laser Therapy Work?

When a cell is working to repair itself, it needs a great deal of energy. Most cells continue to work at their usual rate, which is why repair of some tissues takes so long. In some instances, the cells stay so busy dealing with inflammation and bi-products that are present in the injured tissue; they don’t have enough energy left to provide effective repair. With the use of lasers the cells are stimulated and their activity is increased so that they can perform better, faster and more effectively. The result is enhanced wound and injury healing in a shorter period of time. A more detailed explanation of the science behind how laser therapy works is that, the light from the laser stimulates the cell’s mitochondria into hyperactivity. The Krebs Cycle of metabolism occurs on the inner membrane of this structure, liberating energy from the chemical bonds present in ATP (adenosine triphosphate) molecules. The cell is provided with more energy and is now in an optimum condition to play its part in the healing process.

Laser Therapeutic Effects

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.

Cellular Effects

During 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.

Why Is It Necessary to Use Different Frequencies?

It has been well established that different pulse frequencies elicit different physiological responses. During laser therapy, it is beneficial to deliver a variety of pulse frequencies. K-Laser USA has taken everything known about the makeup of each anatomical part and modified the settings to target just the right amount of bone, soft tissue, and fat. The K-Laser's approach uses the largest variety of laser parameters utilizing multiple distinct phases within each protocol. This dynamic range, combining up to 3 wavelengths and frequencies from CW to 20,000 Hz, has the best chance at stimulating all of the body’s cells to heal themselves more efficiently.
