Frequently Asked Questions
You really don’t feel much…there is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
Increased pain my be due to an increase in localized blood flow, increased vascular activity, increased cellular activity, or a number of other effects.
During more than forty years of use of therapeutic lasers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Contrasted with the side effects from prescription drugs or surgery, laser therapy has an amazingly safe track record.
Thanks to the higher power output of a Class IV Therapeutic Laser such as the K-Laser, treatment times are shortened, so you can get on with your busy life. Most treatments take only a few minutes. The typical treatment is 3 to 9 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 3 to 6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10 to 15 (or more) treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
Many patients note improvement in their condition in just one or two sessions. These sessions may be scheduled at two to three times per week for a number of weeks and then one to two times a week until the condition is under control. For more chronic conditions, one to two times a week is usually used for a longer period of time.
If you don’t want to come back for more laser therapy, consider the alternative…worsening symptoms and/or long term medication use.
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
