Advice on K-Laser Therapy

We answer some of the frequently asked questions K-Laser receives so you can understand more about this therapy and treatment.

Q: How many laser treatments do I need to have?

A: The number of treatments depends on the severity of the condition and the chronicity or level of pain. Some acute sports injuries may only require only four treatments with complete resolution, whereas a person with sciatic pain, osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia may require twice weekly treatments for at least three to six weeks before their quality of life and pain values have significantly improved.

Q: How frequently do I need treatments?

A: The number of treatments depends on the severity of the condition and the chronicity or level of pain. Acute injuries might and superficial wounds can have daily treatments or every other day till healed, but the more chronic painful musculoskeletal conditions will require higher levels of laser energy and time to heal, so two to three treatments a week to reduce the pain and inflammatory disorders.

Q: How long do I need treatments?

A: Post-surgical or acute injuries can heal with minimal scarring and excellent outcomes within a short time frame, but chronic osteoarthritic or neurological pain, despite improvement in pain values after six sessions, may require regular top up laser treatments due to changes that have occurred to bone and anatomical structures over many years.

Q: Should I stop using my medication or supplements when having treatments?

A: No. Do not change any medication as prescribed by a doctor or health clinician whilst having K-Laser therapy initially. After three weeks of treatment for chronic conditions, your condition and pain levels may have subsided to the levels that you can reduce your pain medication dosage or stop altogether. Make sure you consult your doctor prior to stopping any medication.

Q: Can a pregnant woman get K-Laser® Treatments?

A: Yes. There is a small amount of infrared laser light that is reflected back from the patient. First of all, this reflected infrared laser light is not harmful. Clothing will completely block it and there is no exposure to the foetus.

Q: What is a “Class four” laser?

A: All lasers are given a class number based on how powerful they are, with the numbers running from one thru four. Any laser with power greater than half of a Watt (or 500 milliWatts) is a Class four laser. Examples include the K-Laser® Therapy device, surgical and industrial lasers.
