What is K-Laser?

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.

 

Therapeutic Effects

The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.

 

Cellular Effects

During treatment, infrared laser interacts with tissues at the cellular level. Increased metabolic activity within the cell stimulates the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane initiating increased of cellular energy. This leads to a cascade of beneficial events promoting the acceleration of the healing process and reduce pain.

What to expect

There is no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to them.

K-Laser Therapy treatments are cumulative in nature. The length and frequency of treatments varies with your pet’s condition. Even thought improvement may be seen after the first visit, most patients require several treatments for greatest benefit, and we recommend a multi-visit treatment plan. Most sites require3 to 8 minutes per treatment.

 

Our doctors will provide you with a Therapy Laser schedule.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should a patient be treated?

Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering to once every week or two as improvement is seen.  

How many treatments does it take?

This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions 1-2 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 5 to 8 (or more) treatments. Some conditions may require ongoing periodic care to control pain. 

How long before the results are felt?

Your pet may feel improvement in their condition (usually pain reduction) after the first treatment. Sometimes they will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.

Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?

Yes. Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, and electrotherapy. Other complementary healing modalities can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness.

Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?

There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally the patient feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.

Are there any side effects or associated risks?

During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
