K-Laser, or cold laser therapy, is a gentle and non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to help your body heal. Unlike hot lasers, which are designed to cut, cold lasers use a different wavelength of light energy to penetrate deep into your soft tissue to reach the source or your injury. As your San Jose chiropractor, we offer K-Laser therapy as part of our comprehensive approach to healing your injuries. Please contact us now to learn more.
The idea of having someone apply a laser to your body may seem somewhat alarming at first. Most of us are familiar with hot lasers, which are designed to deliver heat energy to a specific point. Hot lasers are used for surgeries and other applications where the destruction of a material is necessary. Cold lasers are different. Using non-thermal photons, cold lasers do not destroy tissue. Instead, they stimulate the natural healing processes of your cells.
Your body has a remarkable ability to heal as long as the conditions are right. Cold lasers are designed to encourage your cells to do what they do best. During treatment, you will probably not feel the changes happening in your cells, but you will notice results after treatment. Many patients that receive treatment from our Cupertino chiropractor report improvements in inflammation and pain.
As your chiropractor in San Jose, we have used cold lasers to successfully treat a variety of conditions, including:
After we have conducted a thorough examination to determine the nature of your injury, we may advise treatment using the K-Laser. If you are interested in K-Laser treatment, you can expect a short, gentle treatment session. Treatment may last for 30 second, or for up to 3 minutes. Once we have applied the laser, we will give your body time to respond to the treatment. Typically treatment will require repeated applications over time to get the best results.
As your Cupertino chiropractor, we focus on treatments that we know deliver results. Numerous studies have been conducted on cold laser therapy, and the evidence demonstrates that cold laser therapy treatment is effective for the treatment of injuries, chronic pain and other conditions. At this time there are more than a hundred studies that have shown cold lasers to be effective, which is why we include K-Laser treatment in the treatment options we offer at Next Chiropractic.
We understand that it can be difficult to appreciate the effectiveness of cold laser therapy without experiencing it for yourself. That is why we encourage anyone interested in K-Laser treatment to schedule an appointment and try it for themselves.
