About K-Laser Therapy
What: Class IV Power Laser: K-Laser therapy is an FDA-cleared therapeutic treatment. It reduces pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration with specific wavelengths of light. The high powered K-laser therapy provides up to 15 Watts of power output. This is 100 times more power than a Class III (class 3) laser. Most Class III lasers only have 150 Milliwatts of power. The increased power also significantly increases the total size of the area being treated. This results in having more efficient treatment times.
How: Laser light energy increases circulation, drawing in water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and speeds pain relief.
Why: We've added Class 4 Laser: K-Laser therapy to our practice's full-body services. We want to provide an effective alternative treatment option for our patients. Class IV Laser: K-Laser therapy helps to reduce pain without pain medication, heal quickly, and recover fully.

Is Class IV K-Laser Therapy painful?
No. Low-level lasers do not generate much perceivable heat. Therefore, when the laser contacts the skin, the patient may experience a slight warmth. However, no burning or discomfort occurs as a result of the laser. Some people feel nothing at all, while others feel a slight tingling or warmth during the treatment.
Can laser treatments benefit me?
For most patients, the results of K-Laser are lasting. While some patients benefit from immediate results, others require several treatments before there is a lasting effect. Each person's condition varies, therefore, the doctor will review your case to determine if/how laser treatments can benefit you.
Has laser therapy been proven?
There are more than 3,000 scientific research studies on laser therapy. These investigations verify the clinical value and effectiveness of laser therapy when delivered by trained professionals.
Is it safe over implants?
People with a pacemaker or other types of implants or prostheses can still safely receive cold laser treatments. It may be necessary to adjust treatment times and dosages for patients with artificial joints since implanted metal can reflect laser light in a way that increases absorption. We suggest you discuss your joint replacements with your chiropractor prior to treatment at our chiropractic center.
How will I know if the laser is working?
Many people will see a reduction in symptoms immediately, typically a pain reduction of 40-60%. Others will experience relief more gradually. How fast your symptoms improve will help your clinician design the most effective treatment regimen.
How often should a patient be treated?
Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2-3 times a week, tapering to once a week. Then once every other week for maintenance, if needed.
How many treatments does it take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 4-6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 6-12 (or more) treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis or neuropathy may need 12-24 treatments and may require ongoing bi-weekly treatments for sustaining the improvements.
How long before results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first couple of treatments. Sometimes, you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that the condition is not improving. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3-4 sessions.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
Yes. Laser therapy is often used with other forms of treatment, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy, and even following surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of treatment.
Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally, one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Are there side effects or associated risks?
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally, some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take?
The typical treatment is four to eight minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Has the effectiveness of laser therapy been demonstrated scientifically?
Yes. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled, scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser for many clinical conditions.

Improved blood flow to the tissues that are being treated with a laser are one of the primary reasons for utilizing laser therapy.
Laser therapy also helps speed up oxygenation of the tissues to allow for better healing.
By speeding up oxygenation of the tissues, the oxygen goes into the mitochondria of the cells to produce more ATP which is the energy that your body needs to heal itself.
The laser also helps speed up the mitochondria of the cell to produce ATP more quickly.
