K-Laser High Intensity Infra-red Treatment
ADVANCED PAIN RELIEF
Unless you or someone you know has struggled with severe injury, chronic pain, or degenerative disease, it’s difficult to understand the impact it can have on life.
But if you struggle with chronic pain, you know its debilitating effects. You’ve likely given up hobbies, family activities, and travel in your efforts to control pain and maintain functionality.
Unfortunately, until now, the only treatment options for these types of conditions have been surgery or addictive pain killers, which often have unwelcome side effects. But recent advances in medical technology may offer advanced, effective relief.
K-Laser, a state-of-the-art, Class IV laser therapy, has been found to penetrate tissue and initiate healing on a cellular level, even allowing some patients to return to normal, everyday activities with little to no pain.
THE POWER OF LIGHT
K-Laser, also known as High Power Laser Therapy, targets damaged tissue with specific wavelengths of light that have been found to interact with tissue and accelerate the healing process.
Much like photosynthesis in plants, light energy passes through the skin, into the cell membrane, initiating a process called photobiostimulation. This process enhances the body’s natural regenerative functions, as well as stimulating the release of endorphins and collagen. It may eventually even normalize damaged or injured tissue.
The result? Accelerated wound healing, as well as reduced pain, stiffness, swelling, and spasms. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored, so patients may take their life back and resume their favourite hobbies and activities.
Laser is best administered in an intensive course twice weekly for six weeks these sessions will include other treatments, decided on by your therapist to help you return to fitness.
