Class IV K-Laser therapy is based on the concept of photobiostimulation; when photonic energy (the laser) is focused on soft tissue, ATP production can be boosted. ATP is the substance responsible for cellular energy production.
This video explains how K-Laser therapy works:
How the Class IV K-Laser works to heal the body
Blood transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, and takes away waste products such as lactic acid and carbon dioxide.
Laser therapy can speed up this process at a cellular level, making it easier for hemoglobin deliver nutrients and take away waste.
In fact, laser therapy can help increase how fast ATP is created – ATP is produced by the mitochondria, and powers cellular activity – laser therapy means more ATP.
The result is faster healing for your body.
Benefits of Class IV K-Laser Therapy:
improved transport of nutrients across the cell membrane
influx of water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area
reduced swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain
