What is K Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy, as the name would suggest, uses lasers to treat a wide range of sports injuries. It is designed to reduce pain, increase circulation and improve healing time.
The treatment is entirely non-invasive and not at all painful. In fact, many patients won’t even feel a thing! The results of the treatment are undisputed; laser therapy has been scientifically proven to alleviate chronic muscle and tendon pain.
PB Athlete Services uses a class 4 laser which boasts more than 500 milliwatts of power. This means that a larger area can be treated in a much shorter time.
Do I Need Laser Therapy?
K laser therapy can have incredible results when applied to the right problem. This therapy has been proven to:
– Improve blood flow
– Encourage lymphatic drainage
– Provide effective pain relief
– Encourage speedy healing
If you are experiencing joint pain as a result of muscle strains or tears, then laser therapy could be exactly what you need.
Our trained specialists will require a consultation with you to be certain your injury requires laser therapy.
What conditions can Laser Therapy treat?
At PB Athlete Services, we have successfully used K laser therapy to treat:
– Carpal tunnel syndrome
– Muscle strains
– Shoulder and knee pain
– Foot ulcers
– Rheumatoid arthritis
– Repetitive strain injuries
What Happens During Laser Therapy?
During the treatment, the laser interacts with tissue cells to increase the metabolic activity within the cells. It increases ATP – or cellular energy – thereby boosting muscle recovery time.
Thanks to the laser, circulation is improved and swelling and inflammation is reduced.
Treatment sessions don’t take very long at all – around 10 minutes, depending on the size of the area that requires attention. You will already notice a significant improvement after the first session and most injuries will require around 6 treatments. Laser treatment is an excellent way of getting back on track and free of pain quickly.
