Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the bodies natural ability to heal. The effects of laser energy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
Class IV K-Laser Therapy is an FDA cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.
