K-Laser Therapy from Our Chiropractor near Shoreview

If you seek drug-free pain relief and injury treatment from a chiropractor near Shoreview, you need to talk to our own Dr. Thatcher about a remarkable technology called K-Laser therapy. This painless, non-pharmaceutical technique aids your body's own healing and anti-inflammatory actions beneath the skin surface, helping you experience relief from joint or soft tissue pain in minutes.

Benefits of Therapeutic Lasers

Lasers have been a staple of medical technology for decades -- but all medical lasers are not created equal. The frequency and power of the laser beam have a great deal to do with the effect of the beam on the body. Surgical lasers operate at a frequency that vaporizes and cauterizes tissue with pinpoint accuracy. By contrast, therapeutic lasers do no damage whatsoever; instead, they pass harmlessly right through the skin, causing no sensation other than pleasant warmth.

The real benefit, however, happens at the level of underlying tissues through a process known as photobiomodulation. The therapeutic laser beam stimulates the production of a cellular "fuel" called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. More ATP means more fuel for cellular repair and regeneration, leading to faster and more effective tissue healing. Therapeutic lasers also increase blood flow to the treatment area, reducing pain, inflammation, and swelling without drugs. 

What Can K-Laser Therapy Do for You?

K-Laser therapy elevates this form of healing and pain relief to new heights of efficiency and effectiveness. The K-Laser is a Class 4 laser device, as opposed to the older Class 3 "cold laser" technology that it replaces. The K-Laser extends its healing effects to a greater tissue depth than the older method, while also delivering up to 24 times more power. This enables K-Laser therapy to accomplish results in just a few minutes that might require an hour or more for a Class 3 laser. Our chiropractor in Shoreview can use K-laser therapy to treat conditions such as:

  • Back or neck pain
  • Chronic joint pain such as arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Muscle strain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Acute soft tissue injuries
  • Chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia
