K-Laser Therapy: A Breakthrough for Pain Management and Wellness

By Dr. Mehrtash Amini

Did you know that the laser was invented in 1960 and patented by the Bell Labs? Starting with 1961, the laser was already used in commercial applications and today it’s widely available in the medical, optics, and aeronautics industries.

At the end of the day, a laser is nothing but a highly concentrated beam of light, but it can be used for medical purposes. For example, k-laser therapy is frequently used to alleviate chronic pain and promote healing. Keep reading to find out what laser therapy is and how it works!

What Is K-Laser Therapy?

As a general rule of thumb, laser therapy involves using different wavelengths of light to treat a particular problem. Light has multiple wavelengths, some are visible and others are invisible. K-laser therapy makes use of red and infrared light to treat an injury. This type of therapy is not painful or damaging to your body and it has been successfully used for years.

How K-Laser Therapy Works?

A k-laser therapy session is very simple and straightforward. Your doctor will use a laser to target specific areas of your body, usually the ones that cause you the most pain. The laser penetrates your skin and reaches the muscles or other tissues in your body.

The goal is to stimulate the natural healing process of the body and help you recover quicker. The laser doesn’t affect your skin, so you shouldn’t be worried about getting skin cancer or something similar.

Are There Any Side Effects?

No. K-laser therapy has been used for years on patients of different ages and with different ailments. This procedure has been approved by the FDA and it doesn’t cause pain or side effects.

During your therapy session, you might feel a warm sensation in the body area being treated. This happens as a result of the laser stimulating the tissue to heal quicker.

What Health Problems Can Be Treated With K-Laser Therapy?

You might be happy to find out that you can successfully treat a wide variety of health issues with this type of laser therapy. Here are some of the most popular problems that respond well to laser therapy:

1. Athletic and Sports Injuries

Athletes get injured a lot in the play field. Some common injuries include turf toe, tennis elbow or lower back pain. These problems might be alleviated with drugs or chiropractic sessions, but laser therapy is usually more effective.

The laser is capable of reaching the damaged muscle fibers and speeding up the healing process so that the athlete can get back to training as soon as possible.

2. Neck and Shoulder Issues

Those who live a sedentary lifestyle or sit in front of a computer for many hours every day tend to develop strains in their neck and shoulders.

At first, these issues might be mild, but they can develop into chronic conditions. Laser therapy is capable of improving blood flow to body areas that cause you pain and inflammation.

You might need several therapy sessions to fix the problem, but it’s possible to get rid of your chronic neck or shoulder pain.

3. Arthritis

Arthritis is another painful condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by joint pain and stiffness, especially in the knees and elbows. Luckily, K-laser therapy can be used to alleviate the symptoms of arthritis as it promotes healing in the joints and tendons.

4. Auto and Work-Related Injuries

Being involved in a car accident can cause different types of injuries. Some of them are minor and can heal quickly while others are more severe and cause chronic pains. Laser therapy can be used to heal some of these injuries and alleviate pains and stiffness associated with them. In a similar fashion, work-related injuries such as slip-and-fall accidents can also be treated with laser therapy

5. Burns

Treating burned skin is not easy as there’s always a risk of inflammation associated with this type of injury. Laser therapy can help by accelerating the healing process and creating more skin tissue.

This is possible for burns on different parts of the body such as hands, legs or face.

6. Headaches and Migraines

In many cases, headaches can be caused by an insufficient supply of oxygen to the head. This usually happens when neck muscles are stiff and not enough oxygenated blood reaches the brain.

Various types of headaches and migraines can be alleviated with laser therapy as this method improves blood circulation through the neck and shoulder area of your body.

How Many Sessions of K-Laser Treatment Are Necessary?

This depends on your age, the type of health problem you want to treat, and various other factors. As a general rule of thumb, most acute conditions can be treated with up to 6 therapy sessions.

Chronic problems might require more sessions, but this is something your doctor will tell you when you go for a consultation.

What Are the Main Benefits of K-Laser Therapy?

Apart from being able to treat a wide variety of health problems, this type of laser therapy is also very safe. It has been the subject of scientific studies for decades and it has been successfully used on multiple patients before, so there are no dangers associated with it. 

On top of that, this treatment method offers quick results, so you should expect to feel pain relief after the first session. Keep in mind that the effects of laser therapy are cumulative, so the more sessions you do, the more benefits you can reap from your laser treatment.

We are providing Telehealth appointments (e.g. telephone consults or virtual video consults) for all patients. Please call us to book or visit our website to book with your MyHealthAccess account. Telehealth visits can be particularly useful if you have travelled recently, you are self-isolating, you are a high risk patient (i.e. over 70, chronic health issues), have no need for physical examination, or if repeat prescriptions are needed. 

As a precautionary measure, we are ONLY booking appointments in the clinic for patients receiving injections (i.e. Trigger Point Injection therapy, hormone shots, or vitamin shots). If you have a scheduled in-office appointment that has been pre-approved by our team, please plan on keeping this appointment unless you are experiencing symptoms, such as fever, cough, congestion, sore throat, runny nose or shortness of breath. If you are a patient who is experiencing these symptoms, please call or email us for further instruction.
