K Laser

Therapy

K-LASER therapy is the leading non-invasive procedure, which stimulates the body’s inherent healing mechanisms using a 15 watt laser to stimulate cells via a process called photobiomodulation. This is the most powerful therapy K-laser available today in either veterinary or human medicine. Through a combination of different wavelengths, power and frequency of laser light K-LASER can achieve improved healing times, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling. The procedure also releases endorphins which helps to relax your animal.

K-LASER can achieve improved healing times, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling. The procedure also releases endorphins which helps to relax your animal.

Laser Therapy has been utilised in human and animal medicine for many decades, however recent technical advances in laser miniaturisation have allowed laser therapy to be used for a wider range of patients.

Whether your pet is in pain, has a wound or any form of inflammation, K Laser therapy is a sterile, pain free, surgery free, drug free treatment. The laser is used to treat numerous injuries, wounds, dermatological problems, neurological conditions, fractures along with reducing pain. It is also successfully used in rehabilitation for trauma or injury, non-healing wounds, and age-related issues such as osteoarthritis.

 

The laser is administered through a non-invasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet will feel a relaxing warm glow from the laser which helps them to relax during the treatment. The almost immediate relief of pain allows your pet to become more comfortable which helps to reduce any anxiety they initially feel.

What to expect

Normally patient sedation/restraint is not required during treatment; indeed, most pets find the experience pleasant. Treatment times vary in length depending upon the condition and the size of your animal, but the majority are less than 8 minutes. Often improvement can be seen after the first visit, however Class IV Laser Therapy treatment is cumulative in nature so for most conditions patients will require several repeat treatments for greatest benefit. The schedule of treatments will vary depending upon the condition.

Owner FAQ's

What does class IV laser therapy mean?

Class IV is the rating of the laser device used to deliver the treatment. All K-LASER CUBE devices are class IV, this is the most powerful class of laser for therapeutic use. More power means higher doses of light energy can be delivered more quickly. 

 

What should I expect during a laser therapy treatment session?

The laser provides relief. The hair does not need to be clipped on the area being treated. Eye protection will be worn by the laser therapist and anyone near the laser. Eye wear is available for all sizes of dog (Doggles), or the animal being treated will have their eyes directed away from the treatment area. The laser therapist will move the probe over the treatment area ensuring the laser is being delivered correctly to the area needing improvement.

Will it hurt my Pet?

Most patients sense a mild, soothing warmth over the treated area. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly after treatment before improvement is experienced.

 

How long will a treatment session take?

It depends upon the size of the area being treated and the specific condition but typically sessions are 8 minutes in length or less. If your pet has multiple conditions your session may need to be longer.

 

How many sessions will my pet need?

This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions 1-2 treatments may be sufficient. Often chronic conditions may require an initial set of 5 to 8 treatments with booster sessions as required to control pain.

 

How long before the results are felt?

Often improvement can be seen after the first visit, however Class IV Laser Therapy treatment is cumulative in nature so for most conditions patients will require several repeat treatments for greatest benefit. Treatments are unique for your animal’s specific needs.

 

Can Laser Therapy be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?

With your veterinarian’s approval laser therapy can be used in combination with other forms of therapy, surgery, prescription drugs or dietary supplements.

Hundreds of published clinical papers have demonstrated the effectiveness of Laser Therapy. Laser Therapy is one of the fastest growing therapeutic treatments for both humans and animals for a wide range of conditions.

 

How long does each treatment take?
