K-Laser Therapy at Advanced Chiropractic and Physiotherapy
Injuries and chronic pain can strike anyone, and when they do, they make life miserable. If you've been looking for some solution to your dilemma that doesn't involve a lifetime of painkilling medications, you'll be happy to know that Advanced Chiropractic and Physiotherapy may have your ideal solution. Our Lakewood Ranch chiropractic clinic can provide a high-tech form of tissue healing and pain relief known as K-Laser therapy as part of your very own holistic treatment program.
How K-Laser Therapy Works
A K-Laser is an advanced piece of medical technology that belongs to a class of treatment called low-level laser therapy, or LLLT. This type of laser operates at a frequency range that doesn't cut or cauterize (as a surgical laser does). Instead, the beam passes through the skin to a depth of several centimeters. At this depth, the energy of the amplified light stimulates cellular components called mitochondria. The mitochondria start producing more of a substance called ATP, which the cells can then use to fuel their repair activities. As a result, tissues heal more quickly, easily, and completely than they might be able to manage on their own. The laser energy also warms the treatment area and directs extra blood flow to it. This therapy reduces pain, swelling, and inflammation without drugs.
It's worth noting that different kinds of laser therapy instruments have different capabilities, which is why the K-Laser is so special. The older Class 3 lasers can only penetrate tissues to a very shallow depth, over a small treatment area. The K-Laser is a Class 4 laser device. This technology can go deeper beneath the skin and cover a wider area, allowing for more thorough and effective treatment. It can also produce both continuous waves and pulsed waves, making it more useful for a wider range of conditions than a Class 3 laser.
