We are proud to offer K-Laser Class IV Therapeutic Laser Treatments for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing. Multiple studies and decades of use have not just suggested, but proven, that laser therapy can help to relieve pain, reduce swelling and inflammation, increase range of motion, and ease the healing process in many types of acute and chronic injuries and ailments.
Laser therapy works by stimulating production of cellular energy in damaged cells. It also enhances cell membrane permeability (the ability for cell membranes to transfer molecules, which enhances the exchange of nutrients and wastes across the cell membrane), making the cells work more efficiently. This promotes the speed and the quality of healing, and improves elasticity of injured tissues. Laser therapy also modulates pain and reduces inflammation. It can be used immediately on acute injuries, over broken skin and over metal implants. Laser therapy can also help with the resolution of chronic complaints such as arthritis and other orthopedic ailments.
Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002, laser therapy involves the application of infrared and near-infrared light to promote healing and reduce pain and swelling in areas affected by arthritis, trauma, surgery and infections. During treatment, a technician applies a laser light to the diseased or injured area with a wand, being careful to keep the laser moving. The Laser stimulates activity within cells to nourish them and remove toxins and waste. It also reduces inflammation and pain, improves blood flow to the treated area and increases the rate of tissue repair. Pets often find the treatment soothing, because it creates a sensation of tingling and warmth where there is discomfort.
