K-laser therapy is a painless and effective treatment that uses specific wavelengths of laser light to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
Pet K-Laser Therapy:
Illuminating the Path to Healing
At Gulfshore Animal Hospital, this FDA-approved deep-penetrating light relieves pain by releasing endorphins and stimulates the injured cells to heal faster. Multiple studies and decades of use have proven that laser therapy can help relieve pain, reduce swelling and inflammation, increase the range of motion, and accelerate the healing process in many types of acute and chronic injuries and ailments. It can be used immediately on acute injuries, over broken skin, and metal implants, which makes it an excellent post-operative therapy.
What is K-Laser therapy?
Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light to create beneficial therapeutic effects. The power can be modulated and pulsed and has no adverse impact on normal tissue.
What can the K-Laser treat?
The K-Laser is a premier FDA-cleared Class IV programmable laser that delivers therapeutic power strong enough to cause healing changes to diseased and damaged tissues, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation. Therapeutic applications that have shown promising results are:
- Acute painful muscle, tendon, or joint injuries
- Painful spinal problems (pinched nerves)
- Dermatitis (inflammation of the skin)
- Ear infections
How is the K-Laser different than other laser therapy devices?
Low laser therapy devices are Class III lasers or “cold lasers.” Their power ranges from 5 milliwatts to 500 milliwatts. The K-Laser is a high-powered therapy device adjustable from 100 milliwatts to 6,000 milliwatts, allowing for a much more comprehensive range of treatment protocols. The power and penetration of the K-Laser system are not attainable with cold laser devices.
