What is K-Laser?

K-Laser is a quick, non-invasive and pain free treatment that is extremely useful when treating conditions of the foot and ankle. It is considered to be a low level laser therapy which can be used for a multitude of different musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. 

How does K-Laser work? 

K-Laser utilises a low level infrared light and works via a mechanism called photobiomodulation. 

Photobiomodulation occurs on a cellular level whereby the infrared light produced by the laser interacts with certain cells leading to a number of biological reactions within the body.  

Benefits of K-Laser include:

  • Increased blood flow and oxygen to an injured site.  
  • Anti-inflammatory (Reduces swelling and bruising by increasing vasodilation and lymphatic drainage).  
  • Analgesic affect (desensitises nerves associated with pain and reduces swelling).  
  • Increased ATP production which acts as energy in the body. 
  • Increased tissue repair and regeneration.
  • Faster removal of waste products in the body. 
  • Speeds up cellular growth.  

How many sessions do you require?

For the best response we typically recommend 6 sessions of laser therapy. This may vary depending on the extent of your injury or condition. We can structure these sessions in a number of different ways. 

For example:

  • One session per week for 6 weeks
  • Two sessions per week for 3 weeks
  • Three sessions in one week, two sessions the following week and one the week after.
