K-Laser Therapy at West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic
When you're disabled by an injury or degenerative chronic pain condition, of course you want to heal up as quickly as possible and/or gain meaningful control over that pain and stiffness. But you may be frustrated by traditional medical approaches such as painkillers (which only mask your symptoms instead of alleviating their cause) and corrective surgery (which comes with its own share of pain and recovery issues). Fortunately, there's a better, safer, easier way to combat a wide range of joint and soft tissue problems. Here at West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic, we offer state-of-the-art K-Laser therapy to help you feel like yourself again.
Principles behind Laser Therapy
Laser therapy applies several principles in treating chronic pain, inflammation and acute tissue damage. Key among these is a process known as photobiomodulation. The energy emitted by a therapeutic laser isn't strong enough to cut or burn the skin, but it does have sufficient power to penetrate harmlessly through the skin and treat the soft tissues below. At this level, the laser energy causes your body to produce increased levels of a cellular "fuel source" called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. This is photobiomodulation in action, with the cells using their extra resources to repair and replace themselves more quickly for accelerated healing.
Laser therapy also has important effects on your circulation. The leaser energy improves the treatment site's blood flow, allowing fluids and inflammatory substances to drain away more rapidly and completely, easing pain and swelling with no need for drugs. Last but not least, high-power laser therapy such as our K-Laser imparts a relaxing, warming sensation to the tissues, prompting muscles to un-clench and easing your pain even further.
Advanced Treatment for a Variety of Problems
The K-Laser technology used by our practitioners at West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic represents the latest advances in this form of treatment. The K-Laser is a Class 4 laser, as opposed to older Class 3 and Class 3b technologies. This makes it up to 24 times as powerful as previous incarnations of this technology, with penetration of tissues up to 4 centimeters in depth. The extra power not only lets us treat more deeply-embedded muscles, tendons nerves and ligaments; it also shortens the average session time, achieving therapeutic results within just a few minutes. but even with this extra power at its command, the K-Laser remains a perfectly safe form of treatment for such problems as:
- Muscle strains
- Osteoarthritis and other degenerative joint pain
- Nerve damage and neuropathy
- Acute injuries
- Back and neck pain
- Fibromyalgia symptoms
