K-Laser™ For Non-Invasive Healing
Capilano Rehab Centre has an outstanding reputation for the provision of modern pain relief treatments for adults, teens and seniors. One of our newer and most advanced treatment technologies is the K-Laser™ Therapy system.
What is K-Laser Therapy?
K-Laser Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing.
What are Some K-Laser Therapeutic Effects?
During each painless treatment, which on average lasts 5 to 9 minutes, the K-Laser 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.
Is There Research That Supports Laser Therapy?
More than 2,500 studies have been published worldwide involving laser therapy, with over 100 double-blind studies which demonstrate a cascade of beneficial effects including pain and inflammation reduction, wound healing, and flexibility improvement.
What Conditions Are Treated By K-Laser Therapy?
Capilano Rehab Centre has seen positive clinical results with the following conditions:
- Chronic Neck and Upper Back Pain
- Arthritic Hip and Knee Pain
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
- Rotator Cuff Syndrome
How Many K-Laser Treatment Sessions Are Necessary?
The measurable effects of K-Laser therapy are cumulative in nature, and usually require multiple treatments. Many times, patients experience some relief right after the first application. The number of sessions will depend on the exact diagnosis, age and overall health status of the patient. In general, acute problems require fewer visits, typically 4-6, but possibly on a daily basis. Chronic conditions may require from 8-12 or more visits. Capilano also includes hands-on manual therapy and therapeutic exercise where applicable in order to facilitate enhance recovery.
