K-Lasers – What They Have Been Used To Successfully TreatOctober 21, 2018
K-laser therapy has been around for some time now. In Europe, doctors started using laser therapy for treatment as early as the 1970s. However, the adoption of this medical technology has been slow, and plenty of research had to be done. Today, K-Laser therapy is one of the leading medical technologies that is used in the treatment of various ailments.
Here in Indianapolis, we have the latest in K-Laser therapy, so you need not go too far to seek this technology.
How Does K-Laser Therapy Work?
A high energy laser beam is directed to specific soft tissue cells. The photonic energy increases the amount of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) production, which is responsible for the cell energy production. The production of ATP enhances the general metabolism of specific cells, and hence a faster recovery process for damaged tissues.
The K-laser mode has a unique pulse that delivers the photonic energy to deeper tissues without providing a warming effect, as opposed to other laser procedures.
