K-Laser Therapy

K-Laser Dynamic Therapy is an excellent multidisciplinary therapy. K-Laser Therapy is a cutting-edge procedure that uses lasers to treat a wide range of different injuries and conditions. K-Laser Therapy utilizes red and near-infrared light to regenerate tissue.

How K-Laser can help you

Laser therapy uses selected wavelengths of light to stimulate key molecules in human tissues. Decades of medical research have identified the wavelengths, energy level and frequencies that induce changes in cellular metabolism (Photobiostimulation), for instance melanin absorbing sunlight changes skins pigmentation.

K-Laser delivers energy from superficial to deep tissues activating a cascade of photochemical reactions that promotes cell function, enabling treated tissues to accelerate the stages of the healing process and reduce pain sensation. This is a safe and non-invasive technique that uses the body’s own reparative processes.

K-Laser therapy penetrates deep into soft tissues, joints and bones, it provides energy to the cells enhancing the natural regenerative processes. By accelerating tissue metabolism and microcirculation, cells assimilate nutrients, dived and get rid of waste and inflammatory products more efficiently. As a result tendons, ligaments and muscles repair faster, with less scarring and reduced pain and inflammation.

Physiological and Biological Effects of Laser Therapy

  • Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth.
  • Reduced fibrous tissue formation.
  • Reduction in pain and inflammation
  • Decreased swelling
  • Improved vascular activity.
  • Increased metabolic activity.
  • Improved nerve function.
  • Immunoregulation.
  • Trigger points and acupressure points. Laser therapy reduces muscle trigger points and stimulates acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Decreased spasm and stiffness
  • Increased range of motion
  • Quicker recovery – faster regeneration of muscles, ligaments, skin, tendons and nerves.

Our clinicians use Laser therapy to treat the following MSK conditions:

  • Chronic muscular and tendon pain
  • Acute muscular and tendon pain
  • Oedema and swelling
  • Increasing joint ROM
  • Reduction of pain
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Bursitis
  • Plantar Fasciopathy
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Arthritis-Osteoarthritis
  • Interdigital neuritis
  • Heel Spur
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Osteo-Arthritis
  • Tibia-tarsal Distortion
  • Tibialis posterior tendinopathy
  • Peroneus longus tendinopathy

Focused Shockwave

Shockwave Therapy is a popular non-invasive alternative to many surgical or steroid-related procedures.

“Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) offers two main advantages over traditional surgical methods: fewer potential complications and a faster return to normal activity.” FDA

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

Shockwave therapy treatment uses an acoustic wave that is pulsated at a high-energy frequency, directly to the painful or affected area.

Most treatments are applied by a therapist using a hand-held device, which turns compressed air into low-energy sound waves. Light pressure is applied and the device is moved across the damaged areas that require treatment.

Shockwave therapy has two main ‘modes of action’ that can help with persistent pain.

Firstly, the shockwaves work to ‘desensitise’ nerve endings which can immediately reduce pain in the local area. Secondly, the waves stimulate blood flow in the area, causing a small amount of localised inflammation.

In the days immediately following the treatment, the body naturally tries to heal the inflammation and in doing so, encourages the regeneration of cells, repairing damaged tissue and reducing pain.

Shockwave therapy can also help with issues relating to scar tissue. As scar tissue is much denser and much less elastic than normal tissue, the sound waves can help break it down, improving mobility and reducing discomfort.

Shockwave is used for the treatment of but not limited to:

  • Plantar Fasciopathy
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (shin splints)
  • Knee & Joint arthritis
  • Bone & Stress Fractures
  • Achilles Pain
  • Tibialis Posterior Tendon Syndrome
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome
  • Haglunds Deformity
  • Peroneal Tendon
  • Tibialis posterior ankle sprain

Advantages of Shockwave Therapy:

  • Fast and effective pain relief
  • Mobility restoration
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
  • No need for medication
  • No risk of infection
  • No risk of tendon rupture
  • Clinically proven
  • No anaesthesia
  • Fewer complications
