Enhanced tissue repair and pain relief
K-Laser Therapy uses a class 4 laser. Specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) are used to create therapeutic effects. It is a safe and pleasant treatment for many conditions, such as sprains, strains, arthritis, and sciatica and can be used safely immediately following surgery.
We are one of only a handful of clinics in the north of England, to offer the Cube 4 and Cube 3 K-Laser. These are the most powerful lasers on the market. This means the treatment can penetrate deeper, so we can treat structures like the spinal nerve roots and hip joints as well as superficial injuries.
All our physios are trained in its safe use and must pass an exam before using it.
The K-Laser Therapy works by increasing circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients into the treated area and creating an optimal situation for healing. It increases the metabolic activity of the cells by increasing ATP production and uptake and improves the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells.
What does this mean? Healing is better and quicker, and pain is less.
Our patients call it our ‘miracle machine’ – we work on your biomechanics with rehab and manual therapy and the K-laser works on your cells.
It’s the perfect combination.
Treatment sessions last up to 30 minutes, and patients require at least six sessions for optimal benefit.
