One of our favorite healing tools at Prehab is the Class IV K-Laser. Laser treatment is pain-free, side-effect free, and proven to help treat and heal a wide variety of injuries.
High power laser therapy painlessly penetrates into the body to stimulate healthy cell growth in soft tissue, ligaments, cartilage, and even nerves. Just as standing in sunshine produces a photochemical reaction in the body by converting the light into Vitamin D, the infrared and near infrared light of the K-Laser create a photochemical reaction that increases the speed of tissue repair, increases the production of healthy blood cells, reduces inflammation, and as a result, reduces pain.
Although the laser light is powerful enough that you must wear protective glasses during the treatment (it will damage the retina if viewed with the naked eye), the laser treatment itself is painless. Some patients report feeling warmth, some feel nothing at all.
Results are usually felt right away, particularly if the injury is acute and you receive multiple laser sessions in the space of a week. We use the K-Laser to treat everything from chronic pain from a torn labrum in the hip or shoulder, plantar fasciitis, “Runner’s Knee,” back pain of all varieties, and even pain and inflammation from sprained joints and broken bones.
