Laser Therapy treatments use specific wavelengths of light for therapeutic effects. Class 4 K Laser treatments reduce both pain and inflammation as well as enhance tissue healing in muscles, ligaments and bones. Class 4 K Laser treatments speed recovery on surgical scars by approximately 50%. It is also used on adhesion wounds, ulcers, vein and edema issues, nerve pain and numbness and tingling. It is most effective when started just hours to days after surgery.
While ablative lasers used in surgeries are close to 100 watts and used for surgical cutting, Class 4 K-Lasers produce up to 15 watts. At Advacare we use Class 4 lasers with outputs ranging from 8 - 60 watts for a wider range of theraputic effectiveness. By focusing the infrared wavelengths of the K-Laser on targeted tissue which gets Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) energy produced. ATP transports chemical energy within cells and is also known as the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer.
