Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been utilized by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970’s, however technical advances in laser miniaturization and durability pioneered by K-Laser have allowed laser therapy to be used for a wider range of patients.
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.
Numerous Studies show that laser therapy can help with:
Edema and Congestion
Neck and Back Pain
