GSE Infrared K-Laser Therapy - Reduce pain /inflammation and enhance tissue healing

Infrared K-Laser (Class 4 laser) Therapy


LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation

Infrared K-Laser (Class 4 laser) therapy is a frequency therapy in the infrared range (~700-1000 nanometers) producing a photochemical reaction that isvery effectively used to:

✔ Reduce pain

✔ Reduce inflammation

✔ Enhance tissue healing (in hard and soft tissues, incl. muscles, ligaments, bones)

The Class 4 K-laser is more powerful than many other laser devices used for therapy in the U.S.:

–   Minimum power requirement of class 3a, 3b and 4 lasers

✔ Class 3a lasers are a minimum 5 milliwatts

✔ Class 3b lasers range from 5 - 500 milliwatts

✔ Class 4 laser must be > 500 milliwatts i.e. ½awatt –this higher powered infrared laser is capable of deeper penetration into the body to reach muscles, and areas such as spine and hip

–   The K-Series Class 4 Lasers

✔ K-800 - has power adjustable from 0.1 - 8 Watts

✔ K-1200 -0.1 - 12 Watts

✔ CUBE-4 - 0.1 - 15.0 Watts in continuous wave and 20 Watts peak / 12 Watts average in Intense Super-Pulsed mode.

The K-lasers diffuse the laser light over an area the size of a quarter - for comparison, surgical cutting lasers use ~100 watts and spot focus the laser

K-lasers are FDA-approved as medical therapy devices

✔ However, the FDA consider it only as an infrared heating lamp and do not recognize the bio-stimulatory effects of the laser

✔ K-lasers are prescription medical devices available for sale and use only to health professionals who are then trained by the manufacturer in their use. The U.S. has many K-laser therapy providers across the country (locations found at K-LaserUSA.com). Except in a few cases, treatment cost (~$40-175 / treatment) is not covered by insurance.

Specific infrared frequencies perform different tasks:

800 nm - Penetrates the deepest – increases aerobic cellular energy production ; this is the best absorption frequency for the terminal enzyme cytochrome oxidase of the respiratory chain in the cell mitochondria to absorb a photon, which it does whether in a reduced or oxidized state and which tends to make it flip state; as the enzyme cycles back and forth between a reduced and oxidized state , each cycleproduces another molecule of ATP, the cell's energy “currency”

✔ 905 nm – stimulates hemoglobin molecule to deliver oxygen to treatment site to be used for energy production

✔ 970 nm – stimulates tissue microcirculation

This short video clip illustrates how the K-laser increases healing in the body

A treatment can use just one or a combination of frequencies

In general,K-Laser (Class 4 laser) therapy promotes the following health functions (and usually acts swiftly within hours of treatment):

✔ Increased microcirculation / vasodilation

✔ Increased lymphatic flow / drainage

✔ Immune stimulation

✔ Muscle relaxation

✔ Improved vascular activity

✔ Accelerated cell reproduction / Growth

✔ Stimulation of nerve regeneration / enhanced function

✔ Increased metabolic activity

✔ Increases tensile strength of tissue repair

✔ Increased collagen production

Some examples of health problems healed by K-Laser Treatments:

✔  Fibromyalgia

✔  Peripheral Neuropathy

✔  Plantar fasciitis

✔  Acute injuries – E.g. strains, sprains, and shoulder injuries

✔ Repetitive-use injuries –E.g. carpal tunnel syndrome

✔ Chronic frozen shoulder

✔ Arthritis

✔ Pain from hip and knee replacements (restoring mobility)

✔ Pets also benefit from K-laser therapy – with such as arthriticconditions; hip dysplasia; vets can also expand on the laser use –E.g. post surgical treatment lessens pain, lessens scar tissue, speeds healing; if it does this for pets (it is also likely to have the same benefits for people)
