Chronic pain is one of the most prevalent, debilitating conditions in the
world, affecting 100 million adults in the US, according to the
Institute of Medicine, costing the nation up to $635 billion each year
in medical treatment and lost productivity. Unfortunately, the primary
treatment options for chronic pain are surgery or heavy (and addictive)
Fortunately, there is now another option - natural pain relief that also promotes healing.
What is this miracle treatment? It’s K-Laser, Class IV laser therapy that uses red and <>
near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect at a cellular level. The results?
• Increased circulation
• Decreased swelling and inflammation
• Reduced pain
• Enhanced tissue repair
In 1916, Einstein suggested that lasers could provide benefits to the
human body. He was right. In 1967, lasers were first used in medicine,
with good success. Laser treatment was approved in Europe in the 1970s
and in the US in 2002.
Now, K-Laser is the preferred choice for thousands of practitioners worldwide.
High power laser therapy can stimulate all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc., so a number of conditions can be treated by high power laser therapy.
Some of conditions that may typically be treated by high power laser therapy include:
• Peripheral Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia <>
• Back and Neck Pain
• Sciatic Pain
• Arthritis pain, Degenerative Discs/Joints
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Knee Problems
• Tendinitis, Trigger Fingers
• Bunion Pains, Plantar Fasciitis
• Sprains and/or Strains
• Athletic Injuries
• Bruises, Contusions
• Headaches, TMJ, Sinus Trouble
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 to 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 to 6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 6 to 12 (or more) treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
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 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 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.
Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Are there any side effects or associated risks?
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take?
The typical treatment is 4 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Has effectiveness been demonstrated scientifically?
Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.
