Patient Benefits of Laser Therapy on Long Island and Queens
K-Laser Therapy is a form of biomodification that can repair the tissue and help it grow. The laser accelerates wound healing and decreases inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. In turn, this procedure improves healing time, reduces pain, increases circulation and decreases swelling. In the management of chronic pain, Laser Therapy is non-addictive and carries a low risk of suffering from side effects.
During each painless treatment session, laser energy increases circulation as it draws 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 of Laser Therapy
The infrared laser light used in K-Laser Therapy interacts with tissues at the cellular level as metabolic activity increases within the cell. This improves the cell membrane’s ability to transport nutrients. This triggers the production of cellular energy (ATP) which can increase cellular function and health.
Support from the Scientific Community
Research has shown that this treatment can improve immune response, lymphatic drainage and blood flow. It has also been determined that K-Laser Therapy plays a pivotal role in tissue repair by strengthening the affected area.
Frequently Asked Questions about K-Laser Therapy
Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?
Occasionally, it is common for a patient to feel mild, soothing warmth or tingling. On the other hand, it is also likely that the individual won’t have any sensation at all. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Has effectiveness been demonstrated scientifically?
Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are over a hundred controlled scientific studies that show the effectiveness of laser therapy for a wide range of medical conditions.
Are there any side effects or associated risks?
Very few side effects have ever been reported since healthcare providers offered this service. Occasionally some old injuries or conditions may feel agitated for a few days. This sensation can occur as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take?
Depending on the size of the area being treated, one treatment session can last from 3-9 minutes.
How often should a patient be treated?
If they feel significant pain, patients with acute conditions should be treated daily. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week. When the condition is improving, treatments will be reduced to once a week or once every other week.
How many treatments does it take?
For those suffering from acute conditions, anywhere from 1 to 6 treatments have been effective. Patients with chronic conditions may need 10 to 15 treatments. In some cases, more might be necessary. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care.
How long before the results are felt?
It is possible to feel a decrease in pain after the first visit. Sometimes, you might not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment builds off the previous one; therefore, results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
Yes! Laser Therapy with other forms of therapy, such as physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, massage, electrotherapy have been known to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
Is K Laser Therapy covered by insurance?
Laser therapy is covered if physical therapy is covered.
