How K-Laser Therapy Can Promote Healing

Everyone wants to have an active, pain-free life. But, injuries or chronic conditions, such as arthritis, herniated discs, or plantar fasciitis, can make life come to a standstill. 

To treat many conditions, doctors will often prescribe medications or suggest surgery. However, those options may come with side effects and unintended consequences. There is, though, another choice.

In this blog, the providers at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora share their insights on a game-changing treatment that can help trigger tissue regeneration and reduce pain. It’s called K-Laser® therapy

What is K-Laser therapy?

The K-Laser® system is an FDA-approved treatment that uses cutting-edge laser technology to improve circulation, enhance cell regeneration, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue healing.

The innovative laser accomplishes these things by delivering red and near-infrared light waves deep into the cells of the targeted treatment area. The light waves then stimulate your body’s natural repair processes.

The K-Laser® system doesn’t mask or dull pain symptoms. It gets to the root cause of the pain — inflammation and damaged tissue — and helps promote tissue healing. Many patients notice a difference from their very first treatment session. However, the effects of K-Laser® therapy are cumulative. By session two or three, most patients experience a reduction in inflammation and pain.

How is K-Laser therapy performed?

To get treatment, your provider holds a hand-held device about the size of a marker over the treatment area. They may hold it over the treatment area for 30 seconds to nine minutes or longer, depending on the size of the treatment area and the prescribed treatment plan.

During this time, the light energy penetrates the skin and reaches the cells, which in turn jump-starts your body’s natural healing process by reducing pain, inflammation, and increases microcirculation.

Treatment plans can vary. However, in most cases, acute conditions may require 4-6 treatments, while chronic conditions may need a series of 12 sessions. For severe conditions, your provider may recommend ongoing K-Laser® therapy to manage your pain.

What can K-Laser therapy treat?

K-Laser therapy is very versatile, and it can treat a number of acute and chronic conditions, including the following:

Each year, 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. But, whether you have an acute or chronic injury, K-Laser® treatment may be able to help you find relief and healing. Also, K-Laser® treatment is an excellent complement to corrective chiropractic care, which can further boost your overall health and wellness.
