At Advance Physical Therapy, we stay on the cutting edge of all advancements within the field of physical therapy. We currently offer K-Laser therapy as an effective alternative to medication for managing pain. Continue reading to learn more about this form of therapy.
What is K-Laser?
K-Laser therapy uses red and near-infrared light to assist your cells in the regeneration of damaged tissue. The cells use the light to replenish damaged cells deprived of oxygen, nutrients, and water. This form of therapy is used as a pain management treatment as an alternative to medication and is often combined with other therapies to decrease recovery time. K-Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s and was cleared by the FDA for use in the United States in 2002. K-Laser therapy sessions are usually short and only last between 5 and 10 minutes.
What Does K-Laser Therapy Treat?
K-Laser therapy has become a popular treatment for various conditions and injuries due to its non-invasive healing properties. When paired with physical therapy, k-laser therapy can deliver optimal results and help patients recover. Here are some conditions and injuries that we can treat with this form of therapy:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
- Bell’s Palsy.
- MCL Sprains or Tears.
- Plantar Fasciitis.
- Tennis Elbow.
- Rotator Cuff Tendinitis.
- Arthritic Joints.
- Chronic Back and Neck Pain.
Dealing with pain or an injury can affect your daily life and hinder your movement. At Advance Physical Therapy, we understand how this can impact our patients, so we are happy to provide our patients with k-laser therapy as a way to manage their symptoms. Some of the benefits of this therapy may include:
- Repairs damaged tissues and cells – The light emitted from the laser can penetrate deep levels of damaged tissues and increases cellular growth and reproduction in the affected area. This promotes a more effective healing process.
- Reduced inflammation – During each treatment, the laser increases circulation as it draws nutrients, oxygen, and water to the damaged area. Doing this creates an ideal healing environment that reduces swelling, inflammation, stiffness, and pain.
- Pain Relief – K-Laser therapy treatment is painless, and many patients report pain relief in as little as one treatment. After beginning this treatment, patients can experience accelerated healing, improved function and range of motion, and reduced pain.
