What is Laser Therapy?
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.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
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.
Does it Hurt?
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.

Neck Pain, Back Pain, Knee Pain Treatment
The Laser Center of Louisville’s 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. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970 and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005.
Science & Research
During Laser Therapy at Laser Center of Louisville, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.
