The Leader in Class IV Laser Therapy

Dr. Keith applying K-Laser to U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team Member Julie ErtelLaser Therapy or "photobiomodulation", is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infrared) to create theraputic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe as far back as the 1970's. Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, laser therapy is being used extensively in the United States.

During Laser Therapy, the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level, and metabolic activity increases within the cell which improves the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the release of nitric oxide that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects increasing cellular function and health.

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 and pain is relieved.
