What is K-Laser Therapy?

We are one of only a few clinics in the whole of the United Kingdom have the Class 4 K-Laser Cube 4 (Low Level Laser Therapy or cold laser). All our Physiotherapists professionally trained in the use of this advanced system for treating pain and maximising healing.

K Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.

Laser Therapy has been widely utilised by physiotherapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970’s. However, with the availability of new technology and new research, we are able to get better results than what has previously been possible.

The K-Laser is the most advanced laser on the market, it utilises the highest grade of laser and combines 4 specific wavelengths at the same time. What that means is less treatment time, and reduced costs for treating chronic pain conditions as well as more acute soft tissue injuries.

The K Laser Therapy will increase circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients into the treated area, creating an optimal situation for healing. The Laser light works by stimulating the body at a cellular level. It increased the metabolic activity of the cells ensuring an improved delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells, and improves the cells energy production which starts a series of events within the cell which improves its function and improves the health of the area treated.
