The K-Laser 6d Class IV Therapeutic Laser
The K-Laser 6d, Class IV Laser provides amazing new levels of effectiveness for treatment of pain. While Class III lasers are capable of penetration of only a few millimeters, Class IV lasers can penetrate over 4 inches into the deep musculoskeletal tissue.
The new lasers have been researched in European countries for years, and it has been discovered that specific wattage and modulation are now used for specific conditions, never before available until now. The perfect blend of chiropractic and laser therapy produces phenomenal results in extremely short periods of time.
Laser light is absorbed by special parts of the cell membrane. This increases the permeability of the cell membrane - which means that good stuff (nutrition) gets into the cell and bad stuff (waste products) can get out. Laser light also enhances the production of cellular energy. There are 70 trillion cells in the body, and in each of them are hundreds of mitochondria. The mitochondria produce a special chemical called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. When cells produce more ATP, they can function better. The laser light from the K-Laser is also able to give significant pain reduction, through it's impact on the 'C' nerve fibers which carry the slow pain signals. The number of treatments required depends on the nature of the problem and the length of time the patient has been affected by it. Some problems are resolved with as little as one treatment. Chronic and/or deep-seated conditions may take as many as 10 treatments but most patients find relief much sooner.
