K-laser therapy is an NHS approved, clinically-proven class IV laser treatment that delivers near infrared and infrared wavelengths of therapeutic light to induce an optimised therapeutic effect within the body. The benefits include decreased swelling, increased circulation, reduced pain and inflammation and enhanced tissue repair. It is also useful in regulating nerve pathways that are aggravated in many physical conditions that occur such as in tendon and ligament injuries, chronic muscular skeletal conditions and, even, flare up conditions such as herpes simplex (shingles and cold sores). It is a totally natural and safe therapy that has been well-researched and scientifically verified over the last 4 to 5 decades.
K-laser therapy has been shown to work on a range of conditions, including:
- Joint arthritis and rheumatism
- Back pain – acute and chronic
- Muscle spasms and trigger points
- Carpel Tunnel and Tennis Elbow
- Achilles Tendon and Ligament Injuries
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Herpes Virus (Shingles and Cold Sores)
- Toenail Fungus
- Chronic wounds and skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis and eczema
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?
A: There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally, you may feel a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction occurs.
Q: Has effectiveness been scientifically proven?
A: Yes. There are numerous studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Among these, there are over one hundred rigorously controlled scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser therapy for many clinical conditions.
Q:How often should I be treated?
A: Acute, particularly painful conditions may be treated daily. More chronic/long term problems respond better when treatments are received 2 or 3 times a week during the initial treatment phase. Top up treatments can be given on an ‘as required’ basis.
Q: How many treatments are required?
A: This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute and chronic conditions 4 to 6 treatments may be sufficient initially but in the case of, for example, cold sores, 1 to 2 short treatments may be all that is required.
Q: How does K-laser therapy work?
A: K-laser Class IV laser therapy works by delivering specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to damaged tissue which induces a therapeutic effect in increasing circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain and inflammation as well as enhanced tissue repair.
Q: Can it be used in conjunction with other treatments?
Yes. K-laser therapy is often used in conjunction with other therapies such as massage, reflexology, physiotherapy.
Would you like to geek out on the science? Click here to watch a highly informative video on the mechanism of K-Laser. Laser therapy uses selected wavelengths of light to stimulate key molecules in human tissues. Decades of medical research have identified the wavelengths, energy level and frequencies that induce changes in cellular metabolism (Photobiostimulation), for instance melanin absorbing sunlight changes skins pigmentation. K-Laser delivers energy from superficial to deep tissues activating a cascade of photochemical reactions that promotes cell function, enabling treated tissues to accelerate the stages of the healing process and reduce pain sensation. This is a safe and non-invasive technique that uses the body’s own reparative processes.
“Having seen the positive effect the KLaser had on my dog Mitzi I was excited to see the difference it would make to my knee after my 4th surgery in 5 and a half years. I can testify that after the 2nd treatment the swelling had reduced significantly and my range of movement with it. Having had 3 surgeries previously I can honestly say that the KLaser treatment has reduced my recovery time significantly“. HW, Cambridge
“I have had laser therapy before but K-laser is different. The results have been good but, with fibromyalgia, it is important to have the ‘top up’ treatments when symptoms start to return”. CW, Marg
“I am amazed at the improvement in my right hand. There has been significant improvement in the area below my thumb which, previously, looked withered and concave. After K-laser therapy it has plumped up, looks healthy and with far greater movement of the thumb. My lumbar area and knee is much less painful and has enabled me to reduce medication.” K.C. Kent
“I run, cycle and ski and was experiencing a great deal of pain from both my Achilles Tendons which was having a big impact on my quality of life. During my initial consultation I was advised that I may need several sessions of K-laser for my chronic pain. I had a very successful first session and immediately following the treatment, I had, literally, no pain. I discussed this with Marianne, the K-laser therapist, who advised the pain relief may only be temporary but, in fact, it lasted for several days. I then had another top up and the pain subsided until quite recently. My range of movement of the ankles and in my sporting activities has improved considerably. I can recommend both the K-laser therapy and the practical, professional approach Marianne offered in treating my condition”. NDA, Cambridge”
