What is a K-Laser therapy?
In simple terms a K-laser is a non invasive device used to control the way energized atoms are able to release their energy. For interest sake, the word Laser came from, and in full means; Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
K-laser therapy is a technology specifically designed to bio stimulate injured, damaged and dysfunctional tissues. For example; You can think of K-laser therapy as giving each cell more energy, (performs photo-bio-modulation). Essentially, K-laser therapy gives the body’s cells more energy so they can repair and regenerate new tissue.
K-Laser Therapy Helps Accelerate Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. As a result of exposure to K-Laser light, damaged cells are repaired faster.
K-Laser Therapy Helps Reduce Inflammation
Anti inflammatory – K-Laser light has an anti-edemic effect as it causes vasodilation, but also activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
K-Laser Therapy Helps Immunoregulation (Immune Regulation)
Photons are absorbed by chromophores (molecule enzymes) that react to K-Laser light. The enzyme is activated and starts the production of ATP, which is the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical healing reactions in the cells. Long lasting pain relief occurs.
What is APT?
ATP is commonly referred to as the energy currency of life.
It refers to a chemical called Adenosine triphosphate which is a nucleoside, a small molecule used in cells as a co-enzyme. It is also referred to as the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer. ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism.
What is a co-enzyme?
A co-enzyme is a substance that works with another enzyme to initiate or aid the function of the enzyme. Its essentially a helper molecule for a biochemical reaction. Co-enzymes are small molecules that provide a transfer site for a functioning enzyme. An enzyme is a protein that functions as a catalyst to mediate and speed up a chemical reaction. Co-enzymes cannot generate a reaction on their own, instead they help enzymes to do so.
Mechanisms of Action in Animals
K-Laser combines multiple wavelengths for broad based bio stimulation
K-Laser therapy Helps Increase Metabolic Activity
K-Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells. This means the damaged cells can repair and regenerate much faster.
K-Laser therapy Using Trigger points and Acupuncture points helps for Pain Relief
K-Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points (knots) and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
K-Laser therapy is used to aid in Faster Wound Healing
The K-Laser light stimulates ﬁbroblast development (fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen), which is predominant in wound healing in damaged tissue. Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, K-Laser therapy is effective on open wounds, scars, and burns.
K-Laser therapy used to help Reduce Fibrous Tissue Formation
K-Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery. Scar tissue is the primary source of chronic pain.
K-Laser therapy helps to Improve Nerve Function
Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. K-Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell re-connection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.
K-Laser therapy helps Improve Vascular Activity
K-Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue which speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis, which causes temporary vasodilation and increase in the diameter of blood vessels. More blood flow equates to expedient healing and tissue repair and significantly less pain and suffering.
K-Laser therapy Analgesic Benefits
K-Laser therapy has a beneficial effect on nerve cells. It blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to the decreased inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalin from the brain and adrenal gland.
