What does laser do?
Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005.
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.
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.
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).
