K-LASER PAIN MANAGEMENT OF ASHEVILLE
K-Laser Therapy at Biltmore Park Chiropractic, Asheville
Chronic pain is one of the most prevalent, debilitating conditions in the world, affecting 100 million adults in the US, according to the Institute of Medicine, costing the nation up to $635 billion each year in medical treatment and lost productivity. Unfortunately, the primary treatment options for chronic pain are surgery or heavy (and addictive) medications.
Fortunately, there is now another option—natural pain relief that also promotes healing.
What is this treatment? It’s K-Laser, Class IV laser therapy that uses red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect at a cellular level. The 4 main components of the laser are:
• Increased circulation
• Decreased swelling and inflammation
• Reduced pain
• Enhanced tissue repair
During each painless treatment laser energy increases circulation; drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored, pain relieved and the body starts healing.
In 1916, Einstein suggested that lasers could provide benefits to the human body. He was right. In 1967, lasers were first used in medicine, with good success. Laser treatment was approved in Europe in the 1970s and now after FDA approval in the US in 2002, laser is being used extensively in the US as well.
Now, K-Laser is the preferred choice for thousands of practitioners worldwide. High power laser therapy can stimulate all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc., so a number of conditions can be treated by high power laser therapy.
